Firehose will tour the United States and play Coachella 2012.

fIREHOSE – founded by Mike Watt and Ed Crawford of Minutemen – will reunite after 18 years of retirement. They were announced on the bill of Coachella 2012 – a festival notorious for coaxing reunions on a reliable basis – and have now revealed a run of tour dates which will last through the month of April. A few of these shows feature M. Ward, another Coachella participant in 2012, as support.
