Published Mar 23, 2011Arguably the best hardcore band to feature a man in his mid-50s, Vice Records signees OFF! convinced would-be detractors of their greatness with the release of Four EPs in 2010. On record, the group, fronted by Circle Jerk Keith Morris, sound fiery and energetic, but the real test is how well they do in a live setting.
Today (March 23), OFF! will kick off a U.S. tour with the equally buzz-worthy Trash Talk. After that, they will launch a West Coast tour that begins with an appearance at the Coachella festival and concludes with a single Canadian show at Vancouver's Fortune Sound Club on April 25.
For all of their touring, OFF! drive around in an eco-friendly van powered by vegetable oil. However, according to a press release, on a recent drive through Arizona they were arrested for allegedly stealing waste vegetable oil. The band will stand trial on April 6 and could face criminal charges.
