Field Day (Members of Dag Nasty) Announce Summer/ Fall Shows

Wig Out 2.0 Tour Kicks off July 12 in DC, New Music Expected in 2020

Members of pioneering band Dag Nasty will play select shows as Field Day starting in July. The tour will include stops in DC (July 12), NJ (Juy 13), Los Angeles (Aug 23), Quebec (Sep 7), and two shows in Chicago (Nov 8 & 9). See dates/venues below.

Perhaps the most notorious outcasts of the Dag Nasty franchise to date, Doug Carrion and Peter Cortner performed on Dag Nasty’s landmark recordings Wig Out at Denko’s (Dischord Records) and Field Day (Giant Records). These recordings are credited as cornerstones of what was eventually termed melodic hardcore, and inspired new bands like Pennywise and Rise Against.

During a 2018 conversation between founding member Brian Baker (Bad Religion), Doug, and Peter regarding how best, if at all, to perform live versions of songs from those albums, it was agreed Doug and Peter would forge ahead under the name Field Day, to avoid confusing Dag Nasty fans or promoters.

Now joined by Mark Phillips (Down by Law), Field Day has announced a series of shows this summer and fall, with new music to follow in 2020.

Carrion refers to Field Day as “a perfect time to revisit previous material for the fans, and a way to continue exploring music.”
