US Summer Tour Begins July 15
The groundbreaking, highly influential Swedish hardcore band will make their first ever television appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC Television on Wednesday July 18th at 12:35am |11:35pm cst. Refused will kick off their summer tour with OFF! on July 15th in Atlanta and also play on July 18th at Williamsburg Park in Brooklyn, New York.
The band has recently completed a hugely successful sold out headlining run that The New York Times described as "sweaty, full-tilt punk impact coupled with smart precision..." which hit a high note at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April and landed the band on numerous not to miss lists as well as Spin.com's "Coachella 2012: Friday's Best Sets" list.
Originally released in 1998, The Shape of Punk to Come has become one of the most influential albums in decades, fusing punk, metal, hardcore, techo, jazz, emo, and hip-hop into a meld of intricate, politically charged punk that has graced 'best of' lists since its release. Refused's most critically acclaimed and final album exploded on the scene with the jaw-dropping hardcore anthem "New Noise," which helped change the game forever by influencing a range of genres to this day.
