With three LPs (their last being 2017’s Bad To My World) and a handful EPs and demos under their belt, Long Island hardcore punk act Backtrack have officially called it quits after an eleven-year career, confirming one last worldwide trek for this year.
“We appreciate everyone who has shown this band love over the past 11 years,” they write. “Thanks to anyone who has supported us along the way and we look forward to seeing you one last time.”
The farewell tour includes U.S. shows with Dead Heat and Rule Them All on the east coast, King Nine, Minus and Somerset Thrower on the west coast, plus Asian and Australian shows, and European gigs to be revealed at a later time.
Backtrack will play one last home state show at Brooklyn Bazaar on June 28. Instead of support from Dead Heat and Rule Them All, King Nine, Maximum Penalty, One Step Closer and Shackled will open. Tickets go on sale Friday (5/17) at 10am.
