Only a few days after Against Me! revealed that they were forced to drop off Bad Religion's 2013 North American tour, a brilliant replacement has been announced. Los Angeles punk rock act the Bronx have been confirmed to open the majority of Bad Religion's tour dates, beginning March 22 in Washington D.C.

With their drummer situation up in the air, Against Me! chose to drop off the tour. Although Against Me! were a fantastic choice to open for Bad Religion, the Bronx are a perfect substitute, having released the addictive album 'The Bronx (IV)' earlier this year.

The Bronx, who recently released a hilarious video for 'Youth Wasted,' announced their boxcar hop onto Bad Religion's tour via their official Facebook page:

What up freaks. Your wildest dreams have come true. Bronx and Bad Religion across the mighty USA. Even Canada gets a little taste. If you don't got a ticket yet, rollerblade on down to your local Sam Goody, Music plus, or tower records and pick one up. Roll credits..

Bad Religion also posted a Facebook message, thanking the Bronx for joining them on such short notice:

dear everyone, finding a band to fill in 5 days before a tour starts is incredibly tough. it's harder than just calling fat mike at home to see what's up. we've been busting our butts and i'm really happy to say that our friends The Bronx will be able to join us starting from washington D.C. onward for the rest of the tour. we really do love them, and can't thank them enough for stepping up to the plate at the last minute...
