After 35 years together, Vancouver’s legendary punk band D.O.A. have announced plans for their final farewell tour this January.
The band’s final dates have been announced for B.C, Alberta and California. Celebrating 35 years and their 14th studio album We Come In Peace, fans will be treated to 2 hours of D.O.A. songs old and new. Watch for special appearances from many ex band members at the final Vancouver show on January 18th at The Rickshaw.
The band formed in 1978 and first released the famed “Disco Sucks” EP. 14 studio albums later, the band are putting it to rest as frontman Joey “Shithead” Keithley embarks on a political career seeking the New Democratic Party (NDP) nomination in Coquitlam, British Columbia. He commented:
“I’ve been working on trying to change Canada and this world into a better place from outside the system for the last 35 years; now I will do my utmost to effect that change from inside the system. That’s why I am running for the only progressive party, the NDP”
