Descendents announce North American tour, reveal New England dates

Oh hey Tuesday, it’s time for another edition of Good News/Bad News. First, the latter.

Bad News: Descendents are not playing Boston on their upcoming tour to support 2016’s Hypercaffium Spazzinate LP, their first album in 12 years.

Good News: There are a couple of New England dates to make up for it.

The tour kicks off April 12 in St. Petersburg, and swings up to Northern New England for a pair of summer dates, August 4 at State Theatre in Portland, Maine, and August 5 at Higher Ground Ballroom in Burlington, Vermont. Later in the year, Milo Aukerman and the dudes return to the area for an October 27 date at The Palladium in Worcester.

So all’s not lost.

See all Descendents dates below. Tickets go on sale for most shows this Friday (February 16) at 10 a.m. local time; see all their dates below.
