Refused are close to releasing their long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s The Shape of Punk to Come, and to celebrate, the Swedish hardcore-punk outfit performed a secret show last night at the Los Angeles record shop Vacation Vinyl. During the set, which is the first in-store show the band’s done in about two decades, the guys took on two fiery covers: Black Flag’s “My War” (from the seminal punks’ 1984 album of the same name) and Fugazi’s “Bed for the Scraping” (from their 1995 effort, Red Medicine). Watch the fan-shot video below, and look out for Freedom when it drops on June 30 via Epitaph.
