Former members of pioneering post-hardcore punk band Dag Nasty, including Doug Carrion and Peter Cortner, and former Down By Law guitarist Mark Phillips, have announced plans to play a select number of shows this summer under the under the moniker Field Day, with new music to follow in 2020.
In 2018 there was a conversation between Brian Baker, Doug and Peter regarding how best, if at all, to perform 'Wig Out' and 'Field Day' songs live. With scheduling and geographic conflicts unavoidable, in 2019 it was agreed that Doug and Peter would forge ahead under the name Field Day, to avoid confusing Dag Nasty fans or promoters. Carrion refers to Field Day as “a perfect time to revisit previous material for the fans, and a way to continue exploring music.”
Since his departure from Dag Nasty, Doug Carrion has continued building his long list of credits, ranging from the Descendents to Kottonmouth Kings, while Peter Cortner has remained mostly out of the music world, opting to pursue academia. With a new project at hand, Field Day has presented the perfect opportunity to welcome Peter back into the musical fold.
Field Day is scheduled to perform a select number of shows on the West Coast and East Coast in late August 2019.
