Bad Religion + OFF! = a powerhouse combo that's hitting the road together for 19 dates in March and April.

There's not much else you need to know about what will be happening at the venue nearest you... just strap on yer boots and yer screw-off attitude and you should be good to go.

We tracked down There's Something Hard in There friend Keith Morris of OFF! for a few comments regarding the tour:

How did this tour come about?

The BR guys ran it by our booking agent, who then ran it by us and then everything else fell into place. All of this tour's basically based around the two weekends of Coachella. What were both bands to do in front of, middle of and after these two weekends? Sit around, hang out at home or go out and play other gigs? It's a great tour for OFF! as Steven and I have known Greg Graffin, Jay Bentley and Brian Baker since the early '80s!    
What are you looking forward to the most?

We get to spend time around BR, who happen to be great guys and we'll be working! Ya' know, earning some moolah to pay bills, buy food, clothing and keep roofs over the heads of four kids, as three of my band members are husbands and dads. No "Deadbeat Dads"! I will not be associated with any of that kinda' scumbaggery!
Any comments/old stories on the OFF!/BR connection?

Flag played at the Groezrock Festival in Belgium a coupla' years back and our bus was parked next to theirs, so we all just started conversing and carrying on as if we'd not seen each other in 25 years. It's incredibly great to reconnect with pals and fellow noise makers, having not hung out since past Warped Tour days. Dimitri struck up a couple of friendships with both Jay Bentley and Brian Baker who let him know how much they appreciated OFF! Respect's a two-way street...
