Black Flag reform for Hevy Fest 2013

Band reunite with Ron Reyes for Kent performance

Black Flag reform for Hevy Fest 2013
Black Flag have reformed and will play this years Hevy Fest, it has been confirmed.

The punk icons will be fronted by Ron Reyes - and not Henry Rollins - for their first UK show in almost 30 years and the only live date the band will play in 2013. A post on the official website for Hevy Fest states: "Celebrating our fifth year this summer, we have been working on some very special appearances for 2013 to mark the occasion."

The band will perform with the Black Flag line-up of 1979 when Ron Reyes joined Greg Ginn in the band as a replacement for Keith Morris, who went on to form The Circle Jerks. Reyes quit just one year later and was replaced by fan Dez Cadenza. Rollins joined the band in 1981, leaving in 1986 where he has continued to release music as well as becoming an actor and touring his spoken word show.

Hevy Fest 2013 takes place from August 2-4 at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent. Organisers promise a further 80 bands will be announced in the coming months.

Descendents, Converge, Rolo Tomassi and Cancer Bats were amongst the bands to play Hevy Fest in 2012.
