Unwritten Law has mapped out a short tour for January with support from Zebrahead, Authority Zero, Tyler Posey, and Tony Lovato of Mest. The Hum Tour kicks off on January 19th in Los Angeles at the legendary Roxy Theater, and then the band will travel down to sunny San Diego and Santa Ana before ending their jaunt in Phoenix on January 22nd.
Formed in 1989, the SoCal punk rockers found radio success with “Seein’ Red,” “Cailin,” and “Save Me.” Despite several lineup changes over the years, the band is still going strong. After a reconciliation between singer Scott Russo and founding drummer Wade Youman in 2013, the band is completed by guitarists Chris Lewis and Scotty Mac, plus Russo’s younger brother, Johnny Grill on drums.
Unwritten Law made a gallant return this year with their first studio album in over 11 years, “The Hum.” Released in July, the conceptual album is divided into the four phases of the moon: “Waxing Moon,” “Full Moon,” “Waning Moon,” and “New Moon.”
Their seventh record showcases how the band’s songwriting has matured over the years, and the four phases of the moon are a symbolic comparison of the band’s history. It is no mistake that the fourth part of the album ends on “New Moon” as Unwritten Law re-discovers this new and exciting chapter in their career.
Unwritten Law is bringing several friends along with them. Last week, they shared a short film music video featuring the songs “Magnetic” and “The Hum,” directed by Joseph Russo and staring Tyler Posey. Tyler Posey will be on the tour supporting his solo EP, “Drugs.”

Coming off their recently filmed music video, “Fire off Another,” Authority Zero will be supporting their album Ollie Ollie Oxen Free which came out in the spring of 2021.
In a recent interview with OC Music News, lead singer Jason Devore said he can’t wait to take the stage for this tour.
Also slated to appear is Zebrahead, who just released “No Tomorrow” from their upcoming EP, “Chapter II,” which is set to drop February 3rd.
And we cannot forget the charismatic Tony Lovato of Mest, who will be gracing us with an acoustic set.
With all these ‘90s punk rock household names on the bill, it is going to be an explosive good time. The first phase of The Hum Tour is in place and we can only assume that new songs like “Ghosted” and “Beggars” will be added to Unwritten Law’s set list. Hopefully this is just the beginning of an exciting tour with more shows to be announced in the near future.
Tickets are on sale now for January 19th in Los Angeles at The Roxy; January 20th in San Diego at The Observatory; January 21st in Santa Ana at The Observatory; and January 22nd in Phoenix at Crescent Ballroom.
