Underground pop-punk cult favorites and recently reunited PLOW UNITED has announced a short West Coast Tour tour in support of Marching Band, its first full-length in 15 years. The 12-song album was released on 12″ LP, CD and digital formats in April of 2013 by Jump Start Records.

The time was nineteen-ninety-something. The place was Wilmington, Delaware (or West Chester, PA, or wherever you want it to have been). Three high school band nerds discovered Maximum Rock and Roll, Lookout! Records and DIY ethics. Away they went, making it up as they went along and in the process creating a style of punk rock that was disciplined yet erratic, melodic yet ferocious, and deceptively simple. Two decades (minus one very long interregnum) and four studio albums later, Plow United is louder, faster and catchier than ever. Watch them for the changes and try to keep up.
