Descendents play Fest 13 in Gainesville, Florida on November 1, 2014.

The Descendents have announced a 2017 North American headline tour...and it's not stopping in Tampa Bay.

The Californian punk legends band will be performing in support of their new album Hypercaffium Spazzinate, which is streaming below. The tour's only Florida stop happens on October 20 at the House of Blues in Disney Springs, Florida. 

Tickets for the show will run you $29.50 plus taxes & fees. They go on sale on February 17 at 10 a.m. EST, but there is a presale happening on February 15. Details on the show are available via

Other artists who've announced Orlando shows (maybe) worth travelling for are Metallica (July 5 at Camping World Stadium) and Jimmy Buffett (May 13 at Amway Center).

Like we said, listen to the new one from Descendents below.
