Influential hardcore band Black Flag have been announced for the 2013 edition of Hevy Festival, held at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in the United Kingdom, marking their reunion and their first UK show in 30 years. The full lineup is yet to be clarified although Greg Ginn and Ron Reyes are confirmed to be in the band.
It is so far unknown if there are any more dates to be announced.
Wonder if Rollins will step back behind the mic at any point too. Or if it's just going to be Reyes.
"The band will be fronted by Ron Reyes"
your avi illustrates this well
Tight, tight, tight!

ginn's probably trying to one up the "flag" show morris, dukowski and stevenson are doing or needs cash for his cat sanctuary
they're touring as just "Flag"
^ not that are some other members of black flag
This can be nothing but bad

Hey. my dad (ron reyes) has been in texas for the past week with greg recording some music for a non-black flag related project, which probably has a lot to do with why they decided to take part in this reunion. funny how I'm finding out about this from a news article on the internet lol. My dad has been heavily involved with new music for the past few years, he even started a new band which he plays guitar in, so I know he would never pass up an opportunity to do a show like this. I agree with mort though, it's weird that they would be doing this in the UK instead of California or something.
i'm okay with this
one of the best news of the entire year
was excited for a moment, then I realized Rollins was not involved.
Oh OK Chuck Dukowski and Robo are in the band too to flesh out the lineup.
This can be nothing but bad

No Rollins, Ehh
rollins is smart.

Would love some more tour dates.

Rollins =/= Black Flag. Reyes was in Black Flag when Rollins was but a fan, if that.
Also fwiw apparently Dukowski isn't in the Black Flag reunion. He's in Flag with Morris and co. No word on whether the Robo thing is legit though.
^hey guy i already said that
Maybe about the Flag thing but there were reports of him and Robo being in the full Black Flag reunion. I still think Robo will be in it but it's definite that Dukowski won't.
I was so hard reading the headline, but no Rollins makes me flaccid.

if Rollins isn't in it i'm not sure if im interested

the people at their shows would be super annoying.
I made a joke about the people complaining about lack of Rollins on what appears to be Black Flag's official page. They seemed to like it. Well, they "liked" it anyway.
I love Jealous Again as much as the next guy but a reunion without the DEFINITIVE vocalist is kind of pointless, especially when replaced by one who was only on like two EPs.

Morris is a bitter asshole that rants for too long at off! shows.
Some belgian punk/hardcore festival announced that flag will be playing, comments on facebook;
I was hoping for parkway drive..
^ Groezrock yeah. I'll probably go see them, but I'm not really excited about it. Hopefully they'll prove me wrong.
August 30-September 1. Tennessee. For all you Yanks.
Hot off the hells of the announcement that Black Flag was reuniting to play Hevy Fest this year, it appears that fans can expect more than just a few sporadic festival reunion shows from the iconic hardcore punk act. Singer Ron Reyes has officially announced that the band (founder Greg Ginn on guitar, Ron Reyes on vocals, Gregory Moore on drums and Dale Nixon on bass) are currently putting the “finishing touches on a new album.”
The seeds of this reformation were apparently planted when Reyes invited Ginn to perform with him at his birthday party some two and half years ago. The two vowed at that time to work on some songs together. The fruition of those efforts will culminate in the release of the new album later this year.
Fans can expect to see Black Flag recording and touring extensively both in the US and abroad. Along with the previously announced Hevy Fest, the band will be headlining the Ruhrpott Rodeo in Hünxe, Germany on May 18th 2013 and headlining the Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee, Saturday August 31st, 2013.
No Rollins, no Black Flag
people actually think this
Well that was random
aside from the fact that this would still be just as much of a pointless dog and pony show if rollins was involved, he wasn't the be all and end all of black flag you tools
plus his voice is shot and he can't pull off those songs convincingly anymore, listen to the west memphis 3 benefit thing
I have never been crazy about these reunions. Dead bands should stay dead.

"listen to the west memphis 3 benefit thing"
