Jade Presents has announced the Descendents will play the Sanctuary Events Center on October 13, 2019 with Joyce Manor and the Night Birds in support. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m.
Every Descendents album is an event. Formed in ‘78, the band’s first releases have proven historic, and all the ones since have only further refined the Descendents’ concept. Punk, pop, buzzing, summery, heartfelt, defiant, adolescent and wise all at once — the Descendents’ sound never gets old. And while fans got the band’s full story in the acclaimed documentary, Filmage, it’s been 12 years since there’s been new Descendents music. Finally, here comes their long-awaited next LP, Hypercaffium Spazzinate.
Descendents’ first Epitaph Records release since Everything Sucks in 1996, Hypercaffium Spazzinate began taking shape after the band ended an extended hiatus to play live in 2010. Though still tight, they lived apart: singer Milo Aukerman — whose cartoon rendering famously serves as the band’s logo — was now living in Delaware, bassist Karl Alvarez and founder and drummer Bill Stevenson were in Colorado, and guitarist Stephen Egerton had settled in Oklahoma. So the album came to life over three years as the band sent tracks back and forth, occasionally meeting up in Alvarez and Stevenson’s adopted hometown of Fort Collins. Adopting such a protracted process meant not having to rush things, allowing for some of their sharpest songwriting yet.
Joyce Manor hails from Torrance, Calif., and released its most recent album, Million Dollars to Kill Me in 2018 via Epitaph Records. The album peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Heatseekers.
Night Birds is a punk band from the New Jersey suburbs. Many of their songs reference pop culture – from Seinfeld to horror movies to Kids In The Hall. Mutiny At Muscle Beach is the band’s latest album.
