The Belligerents Debut EP Release and National Tour – March/April 2011 [Tour News]


Less Arty More Party - The BelligerentsLess Arty More Party
  Explosive Brisbane five-piece The Belligerents are set to take their dance frenzied, disco-pop live show on the road for a national tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their much anticipated debut EP Less Arty More Party.

In 2010, the band infused the hearts and dancing shoes of audiences; supporting acts such as Metronomy (UK), Neon Indian (USA), Breakbot (France), Yacht Club DJs, The Paper Scissors and DZ. They blew the minds of festival revellers holding their own alongside the likes of Little Red, Shout Out Louds (Sweden), Regurgitator, Miami Horror, The Jezabels, Dappled Cities, Urthboy, Parades and the John Steel Singers.

The boys have played countless mind-blowing sets on renowned stages and at house parties – occasionally invoking partial nudity. Also in the midst of this wild year, the band got creatively intimate with Brisbane producer Timeshare at Temple Street studio and recorded a deeply charismatic four track EP. Channelling inspiration from Foals, The Rapture and Talking Heads, The Belligerents have crafted an entrancing musical work of art suitable for any party.

Halloween Monster Mash @ Metro Theatre, Sydney 30 October 2010 featuring Dappled Cities, Spod, Last Dinosaurs, The Laurels, Guineafowl and Magnetic Heads – Live Review

Review: Natalie Salvo

Burlesque dancers, sword-swallowing freaks, fire-breathing entertainers and a human vending machine – there was all this and a bunch of coffins, jack-o-lanterns, cobwebs, skulls, fake axes and faux blood from similarly false severed limbs at the Halloween Monster Mash on Halloween Eve at the Metro Theatre. The event was a surreal presentation that was not strictly a concert, kind of like a mini-festival but with better costumes and greater audience participation.
