The band, not the clown.

US punk rockers Pennywise have announced plans for a massive Aussie tour, set to kick off early February.

During their time Down Under, the four-piece will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their fifth studio album, Straight Ahead, by performing the entire record in full. What’s more, they’ll also be playing fan favourites from their expansive discography.

Over three decades of music, Pennywise have garnered a huge international following thanks to their unique blend of surf punk, hardcore and classic punk. The band’s most recent LP, Never Gonna Die, was released last year. During their Aussie circuit, the So Cal outfit will be supported by fellow punk rockers Strung Out and Swedish pop-punk band No Fun At All.

Check out Pennywise’s tour dates below:

Thursday February 6 — Forum Theatre, Melbourne VIC

Friday February 7 — Chelsea Heights Hotel, Aspendale VIC

Sunday February 9 — Coolangatta Hotel, Gold Coast QLD

Wednesday February 12 — Enmore Theatre, Sydney NSW
