More Bands Added to Punk Rock Bowling, Including Sham 69, Hot Water Music, and Real McKenzies

We let you know about the first five bands on the Punk Rock Bowling lineup, and we're pleased to announce a bunch more.

There's Sham 69 with its 1977 Jimmy Pursey/Dave Parsons/Dave Tregunna lineup. Hot Water Music returns -- just not Chuck Ragan and/or The Draft, but Hot Water Music itself, in full, as well as Derek Grant (Alkaline Trio) and Joe Principe (Rise Against)'s new band, Dead Ending and Old Man Markley, whose upbeat pairing of twang and punk attitude prove the festival is just not for punk bands, which is a nice change of pace.

Check out the rest of the bands that got announced today after the jump.

Full lineup (as of now): Rancid, NOFX, Pennywise, The Adicts, The Briefs, Sham 69, Hepcat, Hot Water Music, Youth of Today, Street Dogs, Dead Ending, Street Dogs, Real McKenzies, Old Man Markley, The Beltones, Far From Finished, Toys That Kill, American Heist, Holding on to Sound, The Bots the Dips, and American Werewolves.

The full lineup will be announced on Friday, February 24. Tickets go on sale next Friday as well, with $100 three day festival passes and $40 single day passes.
