For Circle Jerks diehards, we have the 40th anniversary vinyl edition of their 1980 debut, Group Sex — featuring a 20-page book of photos, flyers and behind-the-scene stories — for sale in our shop. Score yours now!

Get ready to get "Wild in the Streets" again, because Circle Jerks are returning to the road. In spring 2022, the hardcore punk pioneers will embark on their first North American tour in over 15 years, and they're bringing fellow OG's 7Seconds and Negative Approach along for the ride. 

Kicking off in Salt Lake City on March 22nd, the trek will travel throughout the U.S. and into Canada — making one stop in Toronto and two in Quebec — before wrapping up with four Texas dates and then a final show in Los Angeles with the Bouncing Souls on May 13th. 

The tour serves as a celebration of Circle Jerks' genre-defining 1980 debut, Group Sex, which turned 40 years old last year and received a special vinyl reissue to commemorate. Tickets go on sale this Friday October 4th at 10 a.m. local times and will be available for purchase here.
