The Matches have announced a US tour in celebration of their sophomore album Decomposer, which turns 10 this year. On each date, the band will play the album in full, along with other fan favorites from their catalogue and new tracks—the first new music since their 2008 release.
These new tour dates will feature the original lineup: Justin San Souci, Jon Devoto, Matt Whalen and Shawn Harris. Hailing from Oakland, CA, the Matches released Decomposer through Epitaph and involved Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, among other scene figureheads, in its production.
After a five-year hiatus, the Matches reunited in 2014 and toured across the US and Australia. Watch the video for their single “Life Of A Match,” and check out the Decomposer tour dates below.
