Strung Out to tour in suppport of new album

Having lost count of the number of shows played over two decades across five continents, punk veterans STRUNG OUT have announced their first round of tour dates in support of the band’s seventh album, Agents Of The Underground, out September 29th via Fat Wreck Chords (see all tour dates below). In anticipation to the group’s new release, is unveiling the first song off the album entitled “Black Crosses,” which can be downloaded here:

"We have had the whole summer off to sit and wait for this bomb to drop,” says Strung Out vocalist Jason Cruz. “And starting in Texas seems an appropriate place. We are a new band with this release and we’re looking forward to those all night drives, waffle house dinners and overall chaos that comes with life on the road."

Celebrating their 20th anniversary with Agents Of The Underground, Cruz recently said, “This album is truly the culmination of everything we’ve done.” Produced by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Social Distortion, Ignite), Agents Of The Underground flawlessly melds Strung Out’s signature sound of punk rock fury executed with metal precision and technicality. Long time fans of the band sporting the iconic Astrolux logo ( will headbang and mosh approvingly to new cuts like “Black Crosses,” “Ghetto Heater,” and “Jack Knife,” while fans being introduced to the band for the first time will feel at home shouting along to “Vanity” and “Carcrashradio” in sweaty clubs across the country.

Strung Out is Jason Cruz (vocals), Jake Kiley (guitar), Rob Ramos (guitar), Chris Aiken (bass), and Jordan Burns (drums).
