Punk star Jim Lindberg has rejoined rockers Pennywise after quitting the band in 2010.

The band's original frontman will take over from his replacement Zoli Teglas after the former Ignite singer was forced to quit the group following emergency back surgery in July (12).

Teglas collapsed onstage during Pennywise's set at a German rock festival and the punk icons cancelled a series of summer (12) shows to allow him time to recover, but now it appears he won't be back.

Lindberg will once again front Pennywise on 18 January (13), when the group performs at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
