Published May 12, 2014The mid-'90s punk revival is getting a big push this summer, with news that Epitaph Records vets Bad Religion, the Offspring and Pennywise are joining forces on the "Summer Nationals 2014" tour.
A press release explains that the trip is celebrating the 20th anniversary of a trio of shows the acts played together at the Hollywood Palladium back in 1994, though this time around they'll be teaming up for dates across North America. The tour starts off out in Pittsburgh in late July and will include a Canadian appearance at Toronto's Echo Beach on August 7. As previously reported, the bands will also be making it out to Heavy MTL this year.
In addition to the marquee artists, the Vandals, Stiff Little Fingers and Naked Raygun will join the tour on select dates, while the Offspring has a few shows of their own.
You'll find all of the specifics down below.
News of the "Summer Nationals 2014" tour comes in the wake of the Offspring revealing plans to reissue their landmark, mainstream-breaking 1994 set Smash, which is due as standard represses and in a collector's box full of punky ephemera in mid-August. Fittingly, these shows will have the band performing the album in full every night.
