On November 1st, Southern California’s raucous punk heroes Pennywise announced the return of the band’s original vocalist, Jim Lindberg.
The band had this to say about Lindberg’s return, “We’re happy to announce that Jim is rejoining Pennywise and we’re all looking forward to playing music together again.” 2013 will mark the band’s 25th Anniversary.
Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a rich punk rock history, Pennywise began in 1988. The band would go on to amass an international following through relentless touring and a melodic high energy sound merging melodic surf punk, blistering hardcore and the classic punk of their youth. The group has solidified their place in punk history with songs like the raging “F*** Authority,” “Alien” and the band’s now legendary ode to brotherhood and departed friends “Bro Hymn.”
With two instant sell out shows at the Legendary Hollywood Palladium scheduled for January 18 and 19, Pennywise are set to tour the west coast in February and March and touch down in Vancouver on February 21, 2013.
