Refused reunion tour 2012

When hardcore icons Refused announced they would reunite for Coachella back in January, we knew that no band calls the troops back together just for one weekend. They previously tacked on a few teaser shows in New York and San Francisco, and now they’ve announced the long-anticipated run of reunion tour dates in 2012.

And…holy festivals, Batman! Refused will play a few shows in California while they’re tethered to Indio for Coachella, then a two-night stop in New York ahead of a full-blown festival run in Europe this spring/summer. (Seriously, there’s nearly 20 festival stops on this schedule – lucrative work if you can get it.)

The Swedish band has arranged limited time in North American cities, and the lucky ones will need to wait until July for them to come to town.
