Any self-respecting (or self-flagellating) punk rocker is aware of Red Scare Industries, the independent record label which gave us such bands as the Menzingers, Teenage Bottlerocket, the Sidekicks, Masked Intruder and more. Well now, they’re putting together a label showcase tour of sorts, featuring headliners the Copyrights [pictured] alongside Ray Rocket, the nom de rock of Teenage Bottlerocket frontman Ray Carlisle (who will be releasing a solo album this year via Rise Records), as well as recent Red Scare signing the Lippies. The tour will kick off in Milwaukee on May 12 and run all around the Midwest and portions of Canada for two-and-a-half weeks including stops at Montreal’s Pouzza Fest and Michigan’s Bled Fest. As a bonus to our neighbors up north, the Canadian dates will also feature the Penske File. Check out the tour poster and tour dates below:
