Hardcore heroes Circle Jerks have announced an additional run of 2022 tour dates as the band prepares to return to the road this fall for their first trek in 15 years.
The band already has a handful of shows scheduled for October and December, as well as a run of West Coast dates next February and March. Circle Jerks’ newly announced leg will kick off March 19th at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado, and wrap May 13th at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
The band will receive support from 7Seconds and Negative Approach on their spring 2022 run (the Bouncing Souls will join for the tour closer in Los Angeles). Adolescents and Negative Approach will appear on the February/March 2022 stretch, as well as Circle Jerks’ three upcoming October gigs. And Municipal Waste and Negative Approach will open during Circle Jerks’ December run.
Circle Jerks’ current live lineup boasts vocalist Keith Morris, guitarist Greg Hetson, bassist Zander Schloss, and drummer Joey Castillo. The group initially intended to spend 2020 on the road in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their 1980 debut, Group Sex, although those plans were delayed because of the pandemic. Last October, Circle Jerks did reissue Group Sex on vinyl with a handful of previously unreleased rehearsal recordings.
