Mike Vallely, a pro skateboarder who spent the last year managing Black Flag, is now officially taking over as vocals and the fifth frontman for the legendary punk outfit, following the firing of Ron Reyes mid-set in Australia. The band are disappointed for how 2013 treated them, but have given their word that 2014 will be a ground-breaking year for them. Vallely said this about it;
“[Black Flag] can be a stronger, more cohesive, tighter band. We want to prove that.”
And it looks promising – the band have already begun recording new material. Vallely says Black Flag are also planning a “pretty extensive” tour, which will start later this year.
