Members of pioneering band Dag Nasty will play select shows as Field Day starting in July. The tour will include stops in DC (July 12), NJ (Juy 13), Los Angeles (Aug 23), Quebec (Sep 7), and two shows in Chicago (Nov 8 & 9).
Dag Nasty’s notorious outcasts, Doug Carrion and Peter Cortner performed on Dag Nasty’s landmark recordings ‘Wig Out at Denko’s’ on Dischord Records and ‘Field Day’ on Giant Records. These recordings are credited as cornerstones of what was eventually termed melodic hardcore, and inspired new bands like Pennywise and Rise Against.
During a 2018 conversation between founding member Brian Baker (Bad Religion), Doug, and Peter regarding how best, if at all, to perform live versions of songs from those albums, it was agreed that Doug and Peter would forge ahead under the name Field Day, to avoid confusing Dag Nasty fans or promoters.
Now joined by Mark Phillips (Down by Law), Field Day has announced a series of shows this summer and fall, with new music to follow in 2020.
Carrion refers to Field Day as “a perfect time to revisit previous material for the fans, and a way to continue exploring music.”
