Propagandhi Announce Tour With RVIVR And War On Women


Canada’s friendliest bunch of furious old punks, Propagandhi, have announced a tour with RVIVR and War on Women, giving it the spectacularly and intentionally silly moniker “FAILED STATES – American Re-Assault Revisited (Again) Pt. 2 The Sequel.”

Besides being a trio of bands that are each pretty great at their brand of punk, all three also share a number of ideals. Propagandhi have built a career on fighting capitalism, religion, racism, sexism, homophobia and non-vegan diets. RVIVR’s stances on gender equality are one of the few bits of trivia on their Wikipedia page and often come up in any forum discussions about them. War on Women – a band I first found when Propagandhi themselves stumped for them – are self-described as “a co-ed, feminist hardcore punk band.” What I’m getting at is that these shows will be the ultimate in punk rock safe spaces, complete with some of the finest active punk bands today.

Check out the tour routing, along with some snippets of each band and the delightful tour announcement from Propagandhi, below.

Propagandhi released their latest album, Failed States, in 2012 on Epitaph Records. RVIVR released the fantastic The Beauty Between last year for free on Rumbletowne Records. War On Women are currently working on the follow-up to 2012’s Improvised Weapons.

hello fellow slime within a rotting cosmic log, how are you this morning? Y’know, if i were you and lived in mid-eastern Canada or the Northerly Eastern Contiguous United States, i would start shuffling my social calendar to make room for the events we have scheduled to occur in August of this year (2014 if i’m not mistaken). The musical troupes known as RVIVR and War On Women will be joining us in 8 sequentially organized live engagements that will feature us bashing your fucking skulls in with the sonic equivalent of a weaponized goddamn power-washer. So grab the kids and tell grandma to shine up her best set of teeth cuz shit is just about to get real (in a couple months).
