Californian punk legends Bad Religion have rescheduled their 40th anniversary UK tour – cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic – for June 2021.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1980, the band have released 17 studio albums, the most recent being last year’s Age Of Unreason.

They were due to tour extensively through North America, Japan, and Europe this year to celebrate 40 years together, including an almost sold-out co-headlining tour with Alkaline Trio.

They were due to play five dates in the UK next month, in Manchester, Newcastle, London, Nottingham and Bristol, with the UK Subs as special guests, as well as a headline set at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool in August.

But on 29 April they decided to cancel all their live commitments for the rest of 2020.

Today it was announced that the UK dates have been rescheduled for summer 2021, and billed as ’40 Years +1′.

The UK Subs will be special guests on all the dates, which are as follows:

Monday 7 June, Bristol O2 Academy

Tuesday 8 June, Newcastle O2 Academy

Thursday 10 June, Nottingham Rock City

Friday 11 June, Manchester Academy

Saturday 12 June, London, O2 Forum Kentish Town
