California band play six shows across the country in June
Dead Kennedys have announced a UK tour for June, with presale tickets available now.
The group – one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late '70s and early '80s – will play six shows, kicking off at Edinburgh's Liquid Rooms on Mon 19 Jun and finishing at Birmingham's O2 Academy seven days later.
Known for their highly politicised, often angry output, the group released four studio albums between 1980 and 1986 – with debut album Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables one of punk's flagship releases, featuring tracks like 'California Über Alles', 'Holiday In Cambodia' and 'Kill The Poor'.
No doubt they have some opinions on the current political climate.
