A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
The band comments: "Attention Casualties Army! After 27 years of performing with the band, Jorge has chosen that the touring life is no longer for him.With that said, The Casualties will carry on. As anyone who follows us knows, the name The Casualties is stronger then any one member. The songs written in basements throughout New York City shall continue to ring loud. We will continue our commitment to the Casualties Army! We will tour and put forward new anthems for many more years to come. When we said "it's a f*cking way of life" back in the beginning, we meant it.”

THE CASUALTIES are the voice of the disenfranchised, the disillusioned and the dispossessed of this planet. These street fighters are still angry, still political and still keep the heart and spirit of Punk alive. This was already the declared aim of THE CASUALTIES, when vocalist Jorge Herrera founded the band together with second singer Colin in the year 1990. Hailing from New York City, they were inspired by early street punks such as THE EXPLOITED, SEX PISTOLS and CHARGED GBH. THE CASUALTIES successfully revived this style with their hard hitting music as well as their visuals and took it to a new level and now their new Album 'Chaos Sound' released by Season of Mist is available in various formats and limited editions. Punk is dead? THE CASUALTIES never cared about such bullshit. Once again the New York stalwarts give voice to the street with a three fists full of smashing anthems. In an age of austerity, corporate takeover of this planet, and rising anger 'Chaos Sound' bristles with counter-culture rage translated into energetic riffing, barking vocals and a heavy dose of rock. Fierce but always melodic, THE CASUALTIES remain a far cry from teenage poster-boy industry created sell-outs that have become associated with their style. Instead the Americans openly draw inspiration from the early Punk legends such as THE EXPLOITED, BLITZ and CHARGED GBH. THE CASUALTIES are the real thing. Punk is not dead. THE CASUALTIES deliver the crushing proof of that statement with 'Chaos Sound'. Listen and rise up!
