Black Flag has announced a spring/summer tour of North America entitled the Victimology Tour. The tour kicks off on May 15 in Midland, Texas and includes dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto as well as an appearance at the Amnesia Rockfest Music Festival in Montebello, Quebec, Canada on June 20th.

The Victimology Tour will feature new vocalist Mike Vallely joining the band for the first time since performing with them at the 2003 Benefit Shows at the Hollywood Palladium. Vallely is the fifth vocalist in the band's 38 years of existence and according to founding member, guitarist, primary songwriter and sole continuous member Greg Ginn, Vallely "is the perfect frontman to capture what Black Flag was, is and will be."

Vallely affirms, "I'm excited about performing songs from the entire Black Flag catalog. I feel confident in my ability to communicate the songs — To give them their due respect and yet still make them my own. Ginn's songwriting is truly timeless and it gives all of the material relevance right here, right now."

Supporting Black Flag on the Victimology Tour will be Ginn's own HOR, an electronic, psychedelic, instrumental band, and Brooklyn, NY two- piece atmospheric punk band Cinema Cinema.
