ROLO-TOMASSI-05-10-13

Saturday 5th October // 6:30pm // All-ages

*SOLD OUT*SOLD OUT*SOLD OUT*SOLD OUT*

Mathcore? Art-punk? Jazzcore? Experimental rock? It’s not that simple for ROLO TOMASSI, a band that is just as much an exclamation mark as it is a question. With three critically applauded full-lengths now behind them, many events have transpired for the UK quintet since their last trip down under. We’ll let vocalist/keyboardist James Spence take it from here…

“As far as we’re concerned, it’s been long overdue that we return to Australia and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to come back and play a more extensive tour following the trips we made across in 2010. Since we were last over, we’ve had two new members join the band and released a new record called ‘Astraea’. We can’t wait to play this new set of songs for you and to show our new guys Nathan and Chris that Australia is one of the best countries to play shows in in the world.”

They’ll have a couple of native guests to warm up this run of intimate shows…

Bringing their own brand of polyrhythmic, noise-riddled insanity to the table is Wollongong steeds TOTALLY UNICORN. Their reputation for maniacal and unpredictable live shows has been well and truly cemented through the band’s relentless touring of the last few years. Get horny!

Melbourne lads STOCKADES are set to prove themselves on what will be their third and most extensive national tour yet. Playing a hyper-technical style of melodic, epic, and unusual post-hardcore, the band brings together disparate elements in a pained but truly beautiful fashion.

‘Astraea’ by ROLO TOMASSI is available now through their own Destination Moon label.

TOTALLY UNICORN’s ‘Together Alone’ split with Robotosaurus, as well as the self-titled 10” from STOCKADES are available for pre-order now through MONOLITH.

GRIM FANDANGO’s ‘Flicker Noise’ out now through Poison City.

HARBOURER-HAVEHOLD-19.10.13

Saturday 19th October // 7pm // All-ages

Sydney emos* HARBOURER have been quiet lately, compared to the band that shot out of nowhere and supported a slew of internationals in Sydney, and played a stack of good shows. This hiding out is in part due to the recording of their debut 7″, which is a pegged for release in the coming months. In October they’ll team up with Melbourne’s HAVE/HOLD for a pair of New South Wales shows. The current incarnation of HAVE/HOLD, made up of two brothers and an ex Brisbanite have been busy since February writing and playing show after show with a wide range of Melbourne bands and interstate visitors. These shows will be part of their national tour in support of their upcoming Song For Bill Of The Trains/Dexamphetamine Blues single.

*BW would like to note that we hate the term “emos”. Ok, carry on.

BEN-DAVID-DAN-CRIBB-28-9-13

Saturday 28th September // 6pm // All-ages

Dan Cribb will be hitting the road this September with fellow friend and gentle heart, Ben David. The tour will take in Perth before heading east for a short run of dates taking in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.

Cribb will be playing with a full band, making his first tour a family event. His backing band is an all-star group including Harry (The Decline) on drums, Ben David himself on guitar and Kye ‘K-Pax’ O’Sullivan (Local Resident Failure) on bass. Check out all the dates below.

Cribb released his debut solo EP, The Memories Last, this July via Pee Records. Listen to the EP on Bandcamp and check out the video for It Never Ends here.

Ben David will drop his own record, Suck Is Life, before the tour kicks off this September. The release will be available through Anchorhead Records. Ben David’s blend of brutally honest lyrics and gritty acoustic punk rock guitars are a favourite for anyone who has loved, lost, fallen down drunk, got back up again and revelled in the hangover.
