Last Friday, it was revealed that not one, but essentially TWO versions of Black Flag were reforming to perform “reunion” shows. Now we’ve learned that at least one of them is planning to release new music.
Apparently the Black Flag reunion featuring guitarist/founding member Greg Ginn and singer Ron Reyes are putting the finishing touches on a new album. The record will also feature Gregory Moore on drums and Dale Nixon on bass. But of course, fans will know that “Dale Nixon” is actually the pseudonym Ginn used for numerous Black Flag releases. Thus, Ginn’s version of Black Flag has yet to find a bassist (Chuck Dukowski was previously reported to be a part of this, but now it appears that he’s in the other version).
And while Black Flag’s first appearance onstage is slated for the UK’s Hevy Fest in early August, fans can expect Ginn and co. to embark on a U.S. tour. So far, the only State-side date confirmed is set for Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee on August 31. Now it’s Keith Morris’ FLAG’s turn to make the next move.
