“To say good things come in threes would be trite, clichéd and lazy writing but nigh on impossible to escape with news this big. The third month of this year is shaping up to be by far the best as Safe Hands, Have/Hold and Sail On! Sail On! hit the road together to bring a three-fold wave of feelings up and down the eastern third of this wide brown land.

Sail On! Sail On! are prime evidence of Perth’s musical fertility. Their brand of wrought, cascading, end-of-the-world post punk turning heads and opening up pits on the far side of the Nullarboor since they came into being a few short years ago. Debut album You Are Not You came out less than a month ago and already it’s seen demand for the band to head east intensify. As such, they’re on the way, stacked into a van and ready to trade vinyl for vegan snacks!

With long awaited, second full length Tie Your Soul To Mine out via Lost Boy Records, Newcastle heavyweights Safe Hands are at the absolute top of their game. Acclaim hasn’t stopped pouring in; their efforts long-listed for the Australian Music Prize and the boys having lain low for a spell leading up to the release the band is refreshed and their live show is as tempestuous and fervent as ever as Not Fest 2016 crowds will attest.

Have/Hold weathered the socio-political shit-storm that was 2016 holed away in various studios writing material for a follow up to King Salt and touring extensively in their own right as well as with the likes of We Lost The Sea. They have a dramatic and engrossing single and film clip ready to drop any day now and a swathe of new material to road test. What better way to do so than to pile in the van and head cross-country?!

Every show will see its headliner decided by coin-toss on the day with live streaming on Facebook to keep the world abreast. Catch the three-peat, triple-header tour to end all tours…”

Skin Prison

Charities supported:

Supported Accommodation & Homelessness Services Shoalhaven Illawarra (SAHSSI)

“This One’s For Mum is a celebration of live music as much as it is a celebration of life itself. The festival is also a tribute to the memory of my late mother, who was an incredibly charitable woman and also deeply supportive and passionate towards my involvement in the music scene. I was able to tie these two qualities together and raise money for two causes she was directly involved with; autism education and awareness, as well as women’s domestic abuse support. The aim of the festival is to honour one memory, and make others lives easier.” – Chris Young, festival organiser.

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!
