Published Oct 30, 2015It's been a weird year for Portland hardcore icons Poison Idea. After issuing their Confuse & Conquer reunion LP and then going on an indefinite hiatus, the act got back together in the summer. They're spending this weekend travelling the West Coast, and they've now unveiled a tour schedule for 2016. Confuse & Conquer indeed.
Tonight (October 30), the Jerry A.-led iteration of the project hit Vancouver's Funky Winker Beans venue, but that's not the only Canadian date in the cards. A newly confirmed batch of dates will find the Pacific Northwest aggressors heading East for a string of U.S. shows, as well as a stop at Toronto's Hard Luck Bar on February 20.
You'll find all the upcoming show info down below.
As previously reported, the act had called off a late spring tour, noting that they needed "to address some health issues and personal matters." Later, they posted a picture of vocalist Jerry A. recovering in a hospital room, though the specifics of the situation were not given.
