Black Flag Working On New Album

Greg Ginn back leading punk group

Black Flag have seemingly confirmed plans to record new material with Ron Reyes on vocals.

In a year of comebacks, one reformation raised more eyebrows than most. Black Flag shuddered to a halt in 1986, leaving behind them a scorching legacy and – arguably – forming the basis of the infrastructure which would produce so much American music.

Last week, though, Black Flag confirmed their reformation. Once again led by guitarist Greg Ginn, the legendary punk band are set to use Ron Reyes on vocals.

Using their 1980 – 1981 line up, the band are set to play a British show at this year's Hevy Festival. Alongside this, Black Flag – Ron Reyes, Greg Ginn, Gregory Moore and Dale Nixon – are set to play Ruhrpott Rodeo in Germany and the Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee.

Elsewhere, Pitchfork reports that the renewed version of the band are currently "putting finishing touches on a new album" which could be released later this year.

As if that wasn't enough for yr punk rock thrills, former Black Flag singer Keith Morris is preparing to team up with West Coast punk hero Chuck Dukowski, Bill Stevenson and Stephen Egerton of Descendents are set to tour together. Using the name FLAG, the band intend to play sets that "pull from all eras of Black Flag's history".
