38 Years after Their Unforgettable Debut, Black Flag Head on Country Wide Tour
Punk rockers Black Flag formed in 1976 by the band's lead Greg Ginn and have since released seven studio albums and two live albums. The band's debut 'Damage,' was a pioneering project and cemented the band as one of the first to make punk music. Blag Flag are currently writing and recording new music, but until then, their tour across America kicks off in Dana Point, California.
Black Flag hooked fans with their rebellious music and an anti-authoritarian stance and their lyrics widely explored the themes of isolation, neurosis and paranoia, appealing to and uniting a niche fanbase.
The band's first album still has an influence that's felt today. Punk News notes that "If you were to start building a punk record collection from scratch, this would have to be among your first purchases" and NPR describe the project as "revolutionary."
