OFF! Announce Their First U.S. Tour

February 18, 2011

OFF!, the LA-based quartet of Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt), have announced their first full fledged tour, a cross-country trek with co-headliners (and fellow hardcore ragers) Trash Talk. To date, OFF! have offered only a few scant appearances, including forceful sets at CMJ and Chicago's Riot Fest, as an indication of what to expect: a visceral explosion of unbridled ferocity, tempered by the well oiled precision of the four consummate professionals at the band's core. The tour will culminate with a frenzy inducing performance at Coachella, another significant milestone in a meteoric rise that has been as fast and furious as the band's songs

OFF!'s debut album First Four EPs, previously released exclusively as a four 7" box set by Vice Music, was issued on CD on February 15th, rising to the ubiquitous demand of fans worldwide. Delivering 16 barnstormers in just 18 minutes, the collection is a veritable cavalcade of intensity and breakneck tempos. The set has already been honored in such esteemed outlets as Pitchfork (who bestowed the collection their coveted "Best New Music" designation), NPR, Los Angeles Times, Fader, Spin, Alternative Press, Spinner, Brooklyn Vegan, and essentially every other serious music publication around.
