After falling off the planet for nearly 15 years, Refused is finally back and ready to rock your god damn socks off! Rumours started swirling a while back of their comeback tour and then it was cemented with the release of the 2012 Coachella lineup back in January. Now, the pride of Umeå, Sweden is officially back and taking the world by storm! They are on a full force world tour, starting in California this April, then moving East to NY, allover Europe, Japan, and then back to Scandinavia to finish it all off in August. Refused never got the respect they deserved 15 years ago, but in our defense, nobody really understood that The Shape Of Punk To Come was literally going to change punk rock, and music, forever. I’m sure there will be no shortage of mosh pit love
during this upcoming tour though!
