Legendary punks D.O.A. are hitting the road this fall in support of their latest album Welcome To Chinatown, a 28 song live classic. The D.O.A. tour will take the band through Ontario and Quebec before heading back west for dates in Alberta and B.C. Fans around the world have always proclaimed for the last 35 years that D.O.A. is one of the greatest and one of the most exciting live bands ever, the Welcome to Chinatown album backs that up in a big way.
Welcome to Chinatown released by Sudden Death Records delivers an unbelievable cultural and musical thrill ride with this epic release. Led by Canada's Godfather of punk, Joe Shithead Keithley, the band gives you a tension filled ride through punk classics pulled from albums like “Something Better Change,” “Hardcore 81”, “War on 45” and “Northern Avenger.” http://www.suddendeath.com/
The dates in Ontario will be sponsored by Beau’s Brewing Co, who created Hardcore 8.1 Malt Liquor in tribute to the band. The brand states that “Beau’s created Hardcore 8.1 to pay tribute to an iconic band we revere: Vancouver’s D.O.A., true pioneers and 35+ year veterans of the hardcore punk scene.” The beer will be available at all Ontario D.O.A. shows. No doubt, D.O.A. will be pulling out all the stops at their live shows, including their punk-i-fied version of Roll Out The Barrels, where they will invite the audience up to try and polish off a entire bomber bottle of Hardcore 8.1 in a single go on stage.
Hardcore 8.1 is described as a classy, certified organic interpretation of the iconic malt liquor style, the beer mingles malt and fruit notes in three-chord harmony with honey-like elements. The finish offers a hi-test alcohol warmth that resonates like a screaming guitar lick. www.beaus.ca
Joe Shithead Keithley, the originator of hardcore, is really excited to backed by Beau's "It's a natual fit, D.O.A. and beer!" Joe remarked. Of course D.O.A. itself could also be described as a classy, certified organic interpretation of the iconic punk rock style, in fact you could say, that they are close to being the last real punk band in the world: The last band standing, so to speak. Joe is skillfully aided by his infamous henchmen, Paddy Duddy on drums and Mike Hodsall on bass, so don't be a fool, go see them while you can.
