Fillmore Detroit to host Descendents

The Fillmore Detroit will host Southern California pop-punk pioneers the Descendents on Friday, April 21 with special guests The Suicide Machines and Radkey.

The Descendents released their latest studio long-player, Hypercaffium Spazzinate, in July 2016 via Epitaph Records. The album, the band’s first release since 2004’s Cool to Be You, earned the band their highest-charting position on the Billboard 200 at No. 20.

The legendary group’s fourth full-length, All, will celebrate its 30th anniversary later this year. The album, released in 1987 through SST Records,

Milo Goes to College, the Descendents highly influential 1982 debut, turns 35 this year. Over the past three decades, several artists have recorded cover versions of songs from the Milo Goes to College, including: Voodoo Glow Skulls, Sublime, Strung Out, The Bronx, Taking Back Sunday, MXPX, and Face to Face.

Also on the bill is The Suicide Machines. The Detroit, Michigan ska-influenced punk band released its sixth and final studio LP, War Profiteering Is Killing Us All, in August 2005 through Side One Dummy Records. The politically-charged album, which was highly critical of former President George W. Bush’s administration and the Iraq War, was anchored by the single “War Profiteering is Killing Us All.”

The Suicide Machines release their debut album, Destruction by Definition, in May 1996 on Hollywood Records. It featured the singles “No Face” and “S.O.S.”

Garage punk trio Radkey will open the show. The trio, which consists of three brothers, released their debut album, Delicious Rock Noise, in November 2016 through Another Century Records.
