The lineup is Greg Ginn on guitar, Ron Reyes on vocals, Gregory Moore on drums and Dale Nixon (aka...Greg Ginn) on bass. It's certainly not the first time they've gotten back together -- a version played Goldenvoice 30th anniversary party in December 2011, but that was Keith Morris, Bill Stevenson and the Descendents' Stephen Egerton -- but this one kinda feels special.

Why? Well, rather than a one-off, they're not only "putting finishing touches" on a new work, according to an SST press release, but they've got extensive touring planned. Their upcoming performances include:

*Ruhrpott Rodeo in Hünxe, Germany, May 18th 2013

*UK's Hevy Fest on Sunday August 4th

*The Muddy Roots Music festival in Tennessee, August 31st, 2013

Dates for a U.S. tour in the fall are expected before long.

Morris, Stevenson, Egerton and Chuck Dukowski have reunited as Flag, and have national and international dates on the books as well.
