UGG WHAT A YEAR….
Like many other acts, Don’t Back Down’s 2020 schedule was significantly impacted by COVID-19. We sincerely regret that we weren’t able to keep as many shows as we wanted to however, we appreciate and respect the decisions made by both the venues and our booking team. We are working hard to come back in 2021, and we wish EVERYONE who has been affected by these crazy times the best of luck.
In the meantime we’ve been keeping busy by tracking some great deep-cuts at DBD studios. Check out what we’ve been up to in the video.
