The Altercation Punk Rock Comedy Tour is set to kick off it's second national tour of 2008 this October. The travelling group of underground comics will play a number of shows as they make their way to an apperance at Fun Fun Fun Fest. The tour will feature comics JT Habersaat (also the head of Altercation Magazine / Records), Ruby Collins, Chris Cubas and Richie Stratton.

The tour was launched in April of 2008 with the intent of marrying underground stand up with the "get-in-the-van ethos of Black Flag." The group will release an album this fall, titled Metal Up Live. It should be available from Altercation on October 7th.
