MONOLITH & MIDNIGHT FUNERAL presents…

A SECRET DEATH / SAFE HANDS split 7” and tour

This autumn two of Australia’s greatest all time heavy acts will join forces for an epic split 7” release and absolutely mammoth tour. Originally from the Gold Coast but now based in Melbourne, A Secret Death returned from their hiatus last year and will now finally follow up on their 2008 debut album. The split also sees Newcastle greats Safe Hands following up on their debut album, released in 2013. If you prefer your metal and hardcore to come from the post-mix machine, this is the definitive piece of vinyl and tour for your health. 

“We’re pretty sure A Secret Death are only doing this because we lent them gear on a tour last year,” commented Safe Hands guitarist Mick Ayton. Referring to both band’s national run in support of legendary US act Norma Jean, A Secret Death vocalist Nathan Wyner confirmed that “we’re only doing this because Safe Hands lent us gear on a tour once”.

“We’re fully stoked to be given this opportunity to ride A Secret Death’s coattails” said Safe Hands vocalist Benjamin Louttit, before Wyner suggested that this writer “should have an office maz”. 

Check out the new tracks from the forthcoming A Secret Death and Safe Hands split 7″, being released by Midnight Funeral and MONOLITH. Pre-order for an immediate download of all four tracks!

BILLY BURKE (of Yes I’m Leaving fame) doing lovely music by himself

There will be a sweet illustrated booklet for you to take away detailing how to deal with an epileptic seizure. spoiler alert:
1. move away sharp/dangerous objects, 
2. check the time
3. try to put something soft under their head, 
4. don’t try to restrain them, don’t put anything in their mouth, 
5. call an ambulance if it lasts more than 5 mins or there are two seizures in a row) 

The booklet was designed by the very special Ellise Bourne (see 1111part1.blogspot.com.au/p/ellise-bourne.htmland beautifully photocopied and stapled by Sydney’s own Nick Levy.

Roku-Music-2-23.3.14

Sunday 23rd March // 4pm // All-ages

Brisbane’s searing shoegaze quartet Roku Music has had a meteoric rise since its inception last year. Blossoming from the core duo of Donovan Miller (No Anchor/Butcher Birds) and Innez Tulloch (Tiny Spiders/Pastel Blaze), this at-home experiment has supplanted its hard-edged take on the wall of noise aesthetic to become an immaculate construct of melody and sound. The addition of Tom Roche (Rational Academy/O) on drums and Jody Gleeson (The Madisons) on bass has seen Roku Music mine the depths of resonant noise with acuity and reverence. The unflinching dynamism and physical immersion that a live Roku Music show involves is awesome in the truest sense.
