Legendary New Jersey punk band Lifetime have announced the dates of their first tour in nine years. The tour is in support of their recent Jade Tree-released rarities collection, Somewhere In The Swamps Of Jersey, as well as possibly a preview of the band's new material which will surface on their Decaydance debut. Los Angeles rockers The Bronx will be one of the tour's openers; the other is still listed as "TBA." Dates:
"I am excited to announce that Lifetime has signed to Decaydance (Fueled By Ramen) Records. Mostly, because the world needs another Lifetime record. This is a partnership before it's anything else, and I have an intense respect for this band. How they go about things will be unchanged whether they play 2 shows or 200 shows, or who they record with, or what the new stuff sounds like. I am a super fan and it's exciting to have the chance to hear new songs! More than anything, I hope new kids who are fans of bands from this scene see where all of us got much of our influence from."
My Chemical Romance is the special guest that will join Lifetime, Circa Survive, and Drive By at the free SXSW party at Emo's on March 17th. Doors open at noon.

Lifetime's new double disc, Somewhere In The Swamps Of Jersey, is now available for pre-order. This set collects the band's early singles, compilation tracks, covers, demos, live stuff and two versions of the debut record, Background! Members of the band later formed Kid Dynamite, Paint It Black, Zero Zero, and Deadguy. They've "influenced every band you love."
Apparently Lifetime had such a blast when reuniting in August that they can’t contain themselves. Lifetime are taking the wagons west in late January with a string of shows in the great state of California. Information on door times and advance tickets sales are forthcoming.
