Celebrating 40 years of Hardcore 81, legendary Canadian punks D.O.A. have announced a West Coast tour taking place this fall.

Joey Shithead, Paddy Duddy and Mike Hodsall will perform in 16 cities across Canada and the U.S., including 12 stops in their home province of British Columbia. Kicking off in Kamloops on September 23, the band will perform Hardcore 81 from start to finish along the trek, which will conclude in Vancouver on November 20.

"Don't listen to the boneheads: This ain't no government PSYOPS! Get a vaccination as soon as you can, save your grandparent's lives and maybe your friends too!" the group said in a statement.

D.O.A. will bring a newly remastered version of the record — which includes three new tracks and a 12-page booklet — on the road. The reissue will also be stocked online in two weeks via Sudden Death Records, according to a release.
