A stage moniker borrowed from a 16 th century philosopher; an Unearthed gong before finishing high school; a teasing EP which was salivated over; and a 3-time ARIA nominated debut album. And all of this before your first headlining tour. It’s a helluva back-story for Montaigne’s eagerly anticipated run of headlining shows in support of her world-beating debut Glorious Heights.

It’s a punk-rock, post-punk showdown with a co-headline tour from alt-rockers Beach Slang and Spring King!
Philly foursome Beach Slang have proved themselves as a band who can write memorable songs, share that energy live and create a community of like-minded fans. The band’s full-length The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us is the culmination of their collective career and picks up where their two critically acclaimed 7-inches, 2014’s Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street and Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken? left off. The feelings of youth and vulnerability lie at the core of Beach Slang’s music, which is part punk, part pop and all catharsis. Fresh from ten whiplash-inducing shows at this year’s SXSW, you won’t want to miss them make their Australian debut this July!

Living legends are revered for good reason. They are proof of an ideal. They are roots from which future generations grow. When New York City leading lights Sick Of It All formed in 1986, they had no idea they’d be here today, continuing to release spirited, revolution-calling hardcore. Almost three decades in the making, the New Yorkers show no signs of slowing down, getting soft, or toning down their stand-proud mentality on new album, “Last Act of Defiance”.
