It’s not clear if the band will continue beyond the festival, which they headline alongside Madness and Cock Sparrer. NME has contacted the band’s representatives for comment.

The gig will be the band’s first in more than a decade and will feature classic members Keith Morris, Greg Hetson, and Zander Schloss (via Consequence of Sound).

According to Brooklyn Vegan, the group are also planning a reissue of ‘Group Sex’ (1980) for 2020.

Also on the line-up for the next instalment of Punk Rock Bowling is The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Adicts, Propaghandi, Stiff Little Fingers, Anti-Flag, Municipal Waste, The Lawrence Arms, Ho9909, and many more.
