Two of Canada’s biggest punk bands are coming to Penticton in October.

Juno award-winners Billy Talent and multiple Juno-nominees Gob are bringing their tour to town on Oct. 13.

The 2022 album Crisis of Faith gave Billy Talent three consecutive #1 songs on Canadian Rock Radio and another two Juno nominations ahead of their latest tour.

Gob themselves have seven albums and plenty of packed tour stops to their names as they come into Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre.

This won’t be the first visit for the storied punk band either; Gob played the city’s Boonstock in 2014 after the release of their Apt. 13 album.
