Refused Cover Black Flag + Fugazi at Secret Record Store Show
Last night (May 28), customers at Los Angeles record shop Vacation Vinyl were greeted with a pleasant (and loud) surprise: recently reunited Swedish hardcore punk band Refused performed an unannounced show to about 50 people for their first in-store performance since 1995. Highlights of the set included covers of Black Flag’s “My War” and Fugazi’s “Bed for the Scraping.” Check out some fan-captured video and photos below.
The intimate performance comes on the heels of an announcement from the band in April that they are "f—ing alive" and will release Freedom – their first album in 17 years on June 30. They also released a couple tracks from the new album including "Elektra" and "Francafrique." Freedom is currently available for pre-order here and a limited-edition exclusive CD package that includes a 28-page hardbound book, exclusive artwork with gold foil stamping and a double-sided poster is also available.
