After thirteen years, four albums, fourteen singles, countless headline tours, thousands of satisfied punters and a series of colossal festival appearances, Welsh rockers Kids In Glass Houses announce their farewell Australian tour.
Where 2011’s ‘In Gold Blood’ was a critically acclaimed head-trip through a fantasy world, ‘Peace’ is a boundlessly entertaining collection of songs that proves beyond all doubt, that Aled, Iain, guitarist Joel Fisher, bassist Andrew Sheehy and drummer Philip Jenkins, can write one hell of a tune.

The album playfully redefines the boundaries of her unique style of indie pop whilst pushing her voice into uncharted vocal terrain.

Legendary punk / pop / metal / psych hybrid Sydney band the Hard-ons have announced the supports for their upcoming 30th anniversary tour of Australia, which kicks off later this month in Adelaide – and joining them at their hometown show in Sydney are very special guests Cosmic Psycho’s
To be exact, on the 21st of July 2014 the middle-aged yet brilliant trio will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their inaugural public appearance. In 1984, on that day, the multiracial band of bare-chested teenage misfits climbed onto a pub stage for the first time. It is fair to say, they have not looked back.

Touring Australia for the first time since the brutal Failed States album was released in 2012, Propagandhi bring their celebrated and feared combination of punk rock and melodic hardcore to ten shows in nine cities this May/June!
Their first release on Epitaph Records, Failed States willfully careens between brazen metallic tendencies and the ragged punk rock roots of Propagandhi’s earlier work, further raising the lyrical and musical bar set by their critically-acclaimed 2009 release, Supporting Cast(e). One of the band’s most forward thinking and musically varied albums to date, Failed States reaffirms the Canadian four piece as not only one of the most consistently innovative bands musically, but as a damning voice in socio-political affairs.

Sometimes s#%t happens…Unfortunately the Toxic Holocaust & Skeletonwitch tour slated for April was cancelled at last minute due to Joel Grind from Toxic being diagnosed with a serious throat condition which required immediate action lest he lose his voice for good.
He is currently in recovery and sharpening the blades with his sights set on a November reschedule which will see the Holocaust back in our lands ready to rip them apart with their old school nuclear thrash attack. Their latest and greatest album, Chemistry Of Consciousness will be just over a year old by then so the songs will be refined into lethal weapons and the band will be a fine tuned wrecking machine.
