Hermosa Beach legends PENNYWISE have today announced their return to Oz bringing with them, for the first time to our shores, fellow Californian punk rockers CIRCLE JERKS to play seven shows.

Formation of Pennywise
Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighbourhood with a rich punk rock history, Pennywise began in 1988. The band would go on to amass an international following with their combustible chemistry which delivered some of punk rock culture’s strongest songs.
Pennywise classics like ‘Same Old Story’, ‘Alien’ and ‘Homesick’ are as fundamental to punk rock and hardcore as stage dives and guitars. Emerging from the punk underbelly of LA’s South Bay in 1979, Keith Morris (Black Fag, OFF!) and Greg Hetson (Red Kross, Bad Religion) formed Circle Jerks, who quickly became the innovators of a movement simply referred to today as HARDCORE PUNK ROCK.
This historic pairing of hardcore punk heavyweights will be leaving devastation in their wake this September.
