KillRockStar Big Dog Entertainment, Blunt Magazine and The Bowery present: AGENT ORANGE (USA) – AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2011

The original Southern California punk/surf power trio, Agent Orange have been around since… forever. Never bought in, never sold out. Still flying under the radar after all these years, with a loyal following that's always one step ahead.

Agent Orange reach our sunny shores for shows at the Corner Hotel, Melbourne on October 20, The Step Inn, Brisbane on October 21, Manning Bar, Sydney on October 22 and the Amplifier in Perth on October 23.

Named after the chemical defoliant used by the USA in the Vietnam War, Agent Orange were one of a number of bands formed in the highly active "So-Cal" hardcore scene of Fullerton, Orange County, comprised Mike Palm (vocals, guitar), Steve "Soto" Rodgers (bass) and Scott Miller (drums). However, Rodgers left early in their development to form another local punk attraction, the Adolescents. His replacement was James Levesque who has since been replaced by Brent Liles (ex-Social Distortion)

Agent Orange remained largely quiet during the early part of the 90s save for a live album. Palm returned in 1996 with two new members and a studio album, Virtually Indestructible.

At each show, Agent Orange bring with them the best of our local punk scene – In Melbourne, The Meanies and The Duvtons join the bill, in Brisbane Blowhard and Skinwalkers, in Sydney The Celibate Rifles, The Turps and Los Capitanes and in Perth it’s The Decline and Emperors.

Expose yourself to Agent Orange's full blown-supercharged-punk-surf-grind, and you'll never be the same. Tickets on sale Wednesday 31 August, 9am.
