Louisiana post-hardcore icons As Cities Burn are back with their original vocal lineup on a disarmingly catchy new song, the forward-thinking “2020 AD,” the group’s first single in three years. The band have also announced new tour dates.

Partnering with legendary punk label Equal Vision for the release, As Cities Burn share in a statement that they’re “trilled to be releasing new music” that places the Bonnette brothers, Cody and TJ, on lead vocals once again.

The band initially broke up in 2009 after releasing three albums on Solid State/Tooth & Nail Records, before reforming in 2011. Splitting again in 2016, screaming vocalist TJ returned to the group for the first time in a decade on their 2017 reunion.

“We are thrilled to be releasing new music. But even more so to be doing this with a partner like Equal Vision Records. We have so much respect for them as a label and have dreamed of being a part of their family for a long time. 2020 AD started coming together over a year ago as an idea that Cody brought into the writing room. We’re so happy to finally be able to share this with our fans – it’s been a long time coming.”
