Forward announce US tour dates

Japanese hardcore returns to our shores for a string of US dates surrounding the venerable Chaos in Tejas. After a successful run of shows that lead to a subsequent DVD of the trek, the great Forward (ex Death Side) is back for seconds and will kick off a set of dates on the East Coast with Long Knife, heading southbound toward Chaos in Tejas before heading to the West Coast. Full tour listing is below.

The Japanese d-beat titans recently dropped the “Devil’s Cradle” / “What’s the Meaning of Love” 7″ via 540 Records. Copies of that are still available. The band also has a slate of reissues and a new LP due at Prank Records as well.

Video and dates are below.
