Horror My Friend (S.A/Album Launch) / Hannahband / Shaky Handz / 12.02.16


Friday 12th February // 7pm // All-ages

“Hey Sydney m8s, On the 22nd of January we will be putting out our debut album, ‘Stay In, Do Nothing’ through Poison City records. As part of the ‘Stay In, Do Nothing’ Album Tour, we will be launching the album at Black Wire Records, on Friday the 12th of February, with H A N N A H B A N D and SHAKY HANDZ. Come along if you would like to do so. The album will be there for sale and we’ll play it too.”

“If you dig Pavement, Dinosaur Jr or even newer breeds such as DZ Deathrays, you may have just found your new favourite band” – 4/5 Stars – The Music

“Horror My Friend may have taken a while in crafting this beast of a debut record but the wait is most certainly worth it; the Adelaide band has come out guitars thrashing, confident and ambitious – the trio has harnessed some well established post-punk/90’s rock influences in producing a record that isn’t scrappy. It’s aggressive and formidable.” – 8/10 – The AU Review

“Armed with their indie-rock meets post-hardcore sound, the band use backhandedly masterful techniques to craft a fusion of the best elements of noise and DIY into an enjoyably raw listening experience.” – 70/100 – Kill Your Stereo

Sporting a strong and confident aesthetic that reflects the purpose and focus of the band’s sonic tendencies, HORROR MY FRIEND deftly occupy the grey area between between post-punk, shoegaze and 90’s style indie rock.

Reflecting their commitment to frenetic, frequent live performance, HORROR MY FRIEND will embark on an eleven date run in the opening months of 2016. keeping the kids in the loop with a bundle of AA shows.These will capitalise on recent seamless slots alongside the likes of Violent Soho, Tigers Jaw (US), Swervedriver (UK) and The Peep Tempel.

Anticipation for STAY IN, DO NOTHING is steadily building. Scoring I Oh You’s coveted ‘Froth of the Day’ slot with the deeply cool video for single ‘Stay In’ earlier this week, IOY hit the nail on the head with ‘the chorus is a complete earworm, too. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!’. It’s also nabbed Single of the Day over at The AU Review and scored love from Spotify on their Australian Alternative featured playlist. Two South Australian Music Awards nominations and an appearance at BIGSOUND Live 2015 have convincingly established the band as upstarts worth watching in 2016.
