Swedish rockers Refused are headed out on a summer reunion tour. After two gigs overseas in Belgium and Germany, the tour will kick off in the United States, beginning on May 24 in Las Vegas, NV, at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. On June 3, the punk rockers will make their way to the Big Apple with a performance at Bowery Ballroom, followed by a show in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Besides the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, there are several other festy appearances on their tour docket including Amnesia Rockfest in Quebec, and the Reading & Leeds Festival in England. Check below for a full list of shows.

This is the second time Refused has attempted to reunite since splitting in 1998. In 2012 they embarked on a tour, but shortly after guitarist Jon Brännström was fired from the band. No word yet on who will replace him for their upcoming string of shows, or if the band plans on recording any new music to coincide with the new gigs.
