As if a three day weekend of musical mayhem, the reunion of the most iconic horror rock band in history, and performances from Morrissey, Brand New, All Time Low, Balance & Composure, and The Wonder Years wasn’t enough, Riot Fest & Carnival has just announced its official after shows.

From September 14-18th, you can improve your metal health by ringing in the release of Tidal Wave with Taking Back Sunday at the Metro, scream along with the recently reunited Thursday at the Double Door, and get some bonus time with the legendary English band The Specials at Concord Music Hall. You can also say a final farewell to Motion City Soundtrack, whose Sunday night Double Door performance will be the band’s last after 19 years together.

Ten additional Riot Fest after shows will take place during the week. Check out the full list below.
