D.O.A. Announce Farewell Tour Because It's Time, Quite Frankly

Not to be a dick about it but, yeah, it's probably two decades too late but D.O.A. have finally announced their retirement and the obligatory farewell tour coming to a local dive near you.

What a send off!

Joey Shithead is excited about the news because people will finally stop calling him 'Joey Shithead' when his nametag at Lowes finally presents his real name, Joe Keithley.

Oh, and the band recently announced a new beer (no shit, shithead) called D.O.Ale, which is really just old expired cans of Blatz beer with a D.O.A. sticker stuck on it.


D.O.A. announces USA / Europe Farewell Tour, D.O.A. Beer, plus a New Video Farewell Tour of USA Midwest and East Coast this September

D.O.A. Farewell Tour of Europe this October

D.O.A. teams up with Old Yale Brewing to produce D.O.A. Ale New D.O.A.

Video "Boneyard" feat. Hugh Dillon (Headstones, Flashpoint) from the We Come in Peace album Coming this fall on Sudden Death Records Welcome to Chinatown: D.O.A. Live new double live album and Sudden Death reissues the classic D.O.A. 12" War on 45

D.O.A., the Hardcore Punk Kings are gearing up for a farewell tour of the America's midwest and east coast this September. As well they will tour Europe and the U.K. this October. Canada's punk godfather Joe Keithley will lead his talented henchmen: Dirty Dan Sedan (bass) and JJ Heath (drums) on a punk rock rampage to forty, soon to be shaken to the core, cities this fall.

The Men of Action will employ their over the top, no holds barred, deafening combo of riffs, politics and humor to a wide collection of older D.O.A. classics, as well they will jolt you with some more recent nuggets as well. This farewell tour also serves as promotion for the latest studio album We Come in Peace and the upcoming D.O.A. double live album coming out in September entitled Welcome to Chinatown.(Complete date listing below)

It's like a dream come true, on many a long tour around the world, the D.O.A. guys have always speculated about what product would have the perfect association with D.O.A. The answer to that was always "a D.O.A. beer!" Well now you have it, the band has teamed up with award winning micro brewery Old Yale Brewing of Chilliwack, BC, to produce some top notch suds called D.O.Ale.

Joe Keithley, somewhat of a noted beer connoisseur, after recently trying one of the early batches, had this to say "D.O.A. Ale, it's wicked, powerful and tasty! It will get the gig rockin' and the kids going crazy. You'll race back for more!"

And a big thanks to CBC Radio 3 and their band beer series.

Right now D.O.Ale is available around greater Vancouver in private liquor stores. It will soon be coming to Alberta and Ontario.

D.O.A. has teamed up with old friend and film maker Marcus Rogers to make a wildly innovative new video for Boneyard, which is the lead track from D.O.A.'s blistering new album We Come in Peace. The video also features Hugh Dillon (Canadian rock legends Headstones lead vocalist and star of the hit series Flashpoint) splitting the lead vocals with Joe.
