Canadian punk legends SNFU has been resurrected, after a fashion. The band now consists of vocalist Mr. Chi Pig with guitarist Ken "Goonie" Flemming (the Unwanted / Econonline Crush / Dog Eat Dogma / one time SNFU bassist in the 90s), bassist Just Denis (Dog Eat Dogma / Smoked Oysters / Fake it Big Time) and drummer Chad Mareels (Black Donnellys / Nasty On / Dog Eat Dogma).

The band's previous incarnation called it quits in 2005. Chi however wasn't quite ready to let things go and performed a number of shows under the name "asSNFU." While the band is back using the proper SNFU name, it doesn't look like founding guitarists Brent and Marc Belke have anything to do with the new run.

Tour dates have been announced starting this September. They will see the band hopping north for a couple of dates in the Yukon, followed by performances from Vancouver through Quebec.

SNFU (originally an acronym for Society's No Fucking Use) formed in Edmonton, Alberta in 1982. The band was initially comprised of vocalist Mr. Chi Pig, guitarists Brent and Marc Belke, bassist Warren Bidlock and drummer Evan "Tadpole" Jones. Over the next decade their rhythm section shifted from album to album, with over 17 people having played in the band at one time or another.The band released albums on BYO, Cargo, Epitaph, Alternative Tentacles and their own label Rake Records.
