From its blazing hardcore roots through multiple phases of fruitful experimentation, Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen had all the brains, work ethic, and tunes needed to make it big—but when the underground scene it helped foster broke through to the mainstream in the early ’90s, the group seemed to miss out on the glory. But bands this good aren’t just forgotten, and thanks to a reunion gig in 2012, interest in Die Kreuzen has surged. That interest is certainly warranted—look no further than 1988’s Century Days and 1991’s Cement—and the legendary band is taking advantage by playing its second hometown show in 20 years. The Memorial Day weekend show is scheduled for Sunday, May 26 at Turner Hall. General admission tickets are $20, and go on sale Friday, February 15 at noon.
Similar to last year’s reunion show, original members Daniel Kubinski, Keith Brammer, and Erik Tunison will be joined by Couch Flambeau guitarist Jay Tiller, who will sit in for Brian Egeness. The Milwaukee date will be preceded by a show at Chicago’s Double Door May 25.
