The Flatliners Bring Christmas Cheer with the Holiday Mêlée December Tour

The Ontario punk vets play Toronto and Montreal before their 2023 is out

Merry Christmas and a happy New Ruin: the Flatliners are getting in the seasonal spirit ahead of time in announcing some December tour dates.

The band's Holiday Mêlée tour, taking place this December, is made up of their final four dates of 2023.

Will that furious wolf designed by Lukas Krol from the above tour flyer (donning a Flatliners scarf, no less) be schlepping merch from city to city on that flaming skidoo? Listeners in four cities will learn the answer, and should console them with a heartfelt, "It'll buff out."

The Flatliners first play Montreal's Club Soda on December 8, ahead of making the drive to take the stage at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall the following evening (December 9).

From there, the band play another set of back-to-back dates in the US, visiting Cleveland's Grog Shop and Chicago's Bottom Lounge.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 18, at 10 a.m. local time via the band's official website, and you can find their complete itinerary below.
