By Josiah HughesLong-running Japanese punk rock trio Shonen Knife are celebrating 30 years together this year, and they've already solidified that achievement by announcing Osaka Ramones: Tribute to the Ramones. Making the album they were born to make is one thing, but now the group have announced a headlining North American tour.
The run of dates kicks off in Toronto on October 20 and is followed by a show in Montreal on October 21. From there, they'll travel through the United States before surfacing in Vancouver on November 7 for one more Canadian date. Check out the full schedule below.
Shonen Knife's Osaka Ramones: Tribute to the Ramones will be available on July 19 via Good Charamel Records.
