The Offspring Promote ‘Summer Nationals’ Tour by Covering Bad Religion + Pennywise

The Offspring‘s ‘Summer Nationals’ Tour is rapidly approaching and the band has decided to promote their upcoming dates with fellow punk vets Bad Religion and Pennywise by cover songs from both bands.

Dexter Holland and company chose a pair of Bad Religion songs to cover, taking on the title track from the group’s 1989 album ‘No Control’ and also recording ‘Do What You Want’ from the band’s 1988 album, ‘Suffer.’ Meanwhile, they’ve also taken on the Pennywise track ‘No Reason Why’ from the band’s 1991 self-titled debut disc.

All three of the accompanying videos feature concert photos from Tijs van Leur and offer glimpses at the band’s upcoming tour dates. Check out the Bad Religion covers above and below, and the Pennywise cover at the bottom of this post.

The tour officially kicks off July 29 at Pittsburgh’s Stage AE. The Offspring will be performing the ‘Smash’ album in its entirety during the run. The disc is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer. And given the Pennywise and Bad Religion covers, you have to wonder if there will be any special collaborations between the bands on the tour. See all of the upcoming dates, which include select shows with The Vandals and Stiff Little Fingers, at this location.
