Legendary punk rock outfit, Strung Out, is bringing their Twisted In A Suburban Wasteland tour to Chicago this weekend. The group, who over the past 20 years has successfully blended melodic punk, hardcore, and metal, will be taking over the stage at Reggie’s Rock Club on Saturday night.
What makes this tour so special is that Strung Out will be performing both of their landmark albums, Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues (1996) and Twisted By Design (1998), back-to-back in their entirety.
Strung Out will be heading back into the studio in the coming months to work on a new record, and as lead vocalist Jason Cruz put it, “It feels right to do one last retrospective before we head into the making of another album. I think people will really enjoy these older songs played back to back.”
This is a must-see show for punk rock fans, and we’ve got your ticket hookup! Grab all of the details on the show and how you can score a pair of tickets, below.
Released on Fat Wreck Chords, these two albums have managed to sell over 300,000 units to date. With bands like Rise Against, Thrice, and Avenged Sevenfold citing Strung Out as an influence, these guys have without a doubt shaped some of today’s most unique hardcore/punk.
You can grab a copy of Twisted By Design on vinyl along with most of Strung Out’s extensive discography through Fat Wreck Chord’s online store.
The all ages show at Reggie’s Rock Club (2105 S State St) kicks off at 6:00 PM this Saturday, 8/11. Opening for Strung Out are The Darlings, Handguns, and La Armada. If you don’t win here, you can pick up your tickets online for $20 or at the show for $22.
