Reunited Black Flag recording new album
Recently reunited hardcore group Black Flag are set to record a brand new album.

Last week, the 1979-80 line-up of the band - fronted by Ron Reyes - announced that they would be reforming to play the Hevy Fest in Kent as well as Ruhrpott Rodeo in Germany and the Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee.

However, on the same day, another incarnation of the band also announced that they would be playing shows in 2013.

The band's co-founder Keith Morris, alongside Chuck Dukowski, Bill Stevenson and Stephen Egerton of Descendents, will be touring as FLAG, playing sets that "pull from all eras of Black Flag's history".

FLAG will play the Monster Bash Festival in Germany, Groezrock Festival in Belgium and the Punk Rock Bowling Festival in Las Vegas.

Pitchfork reports that the Ron Reyes, Greg Ginn, Gregory Moore and Dale Nixon version of the band, who are using the original name, are currently "putting finishing touches on a new album" which is set for release later this year.

Greg Ginn was joined by Ron Reyes in Black Flag in 1979, replacing Keith Morris, who went on to form The Circle Jerks. Morris currently plays with Off!.

Reyes quit just one year later and was replaced by fan Dez Cadena. Henry Rollins joined the band in 1981, leaving in 1986. Rollins is not attached to any of the Black Flag reunions.
