Yo! Philly and San Francisco 80s punk rock fans!

RUIN will reassemble and perform at the Union Transfer in Philadelphia, August 31, 2013!

Fan support is making this happen -- exceeding the band's kickstarter goal;
which will help to bring about the release of their long promised documentary and re-issue of their album releases.
