Legendary Japanese noisemakers Boris returns to our shores for the “Live Noise Alive” Australian tour.
19 albums in 19 years. That’s the studio discography of one of the most significant and prolific bands to emerge from Japan’s noise scene. The number gets tricky once you start counting the trio’s punishing live documents or their myriad co-conspirators – the double-LP with drone lords Sunn O))), the numerous collaborations with master sound manipulator Merzbow or the one-offs with the likes of Ian Astbury, Torche and Doomriders – all of which have put Boris at the forefront of the conversation about noise and doom in the last two decades.
‘Elephant in the Room’ – one of the centrepieces of So We Can Remember lashes out at 21st century ignorance and avarice and is about as challenging as any slice of rap music in this brave new post-Kendrick world. The Vine
Thundamentals are not stopping. Now announcing a tour that coincides with the 12-month anniversary of their 3rd LP So We Can Remember, the Blue Mountains crew have not had much time for visits home lately. Since first single ‘Smiles Don’t Lie’ went gangbusters the guys have been adopted, loved and championed all over the country.
Canadian post hardcore pioneers, Silverstein have sold over 1 million records in their 15 year career, and this year their breakthrough album Discovering The Waterfront turns 10! The album gave the band their first Top 40 chart debut and brought them a whole new audience via their faster, more energetic songs.
Silverstein lead the rise of aggressive, melodic punk in the early 2000’s and cultivated a sound and work ethic that set them apart from their peers. With 6 albums, countless EP’s, nearly 2000 shows and a million albums under their belts, they still strive to be better with each passing year.

|With two influential bands and a sold out solo tour of the USA under his belt, ANDREW MCMAHON thoroughly deserves his place as a true star in the music scene. Best known as the piano-pounding front man of Something Corporate and Jackʼs Mannequin, his smooth voice and touching lyrics have amassed loyal and adoring fans the world over.
To a music fan of any age, the name Something Corporate brings back a flood of memories and induces dewy-eyed nostalgia. With pensive piano and chugging guitars, ANDREW MCMAHON wrote sincerely of loneliness, homesickness and longing, ensuring the band’s enduring appeal. “SoCo was light years ahead of its time, insightful and smart” (Riverfront Times), paving the way for the numerous melancholic introspective bands that followed after their hiatus in 2004.
Weaving beautiful metaphors through piano-laced rock, ANDREW MCMAHON’s live shows are stuff of legend, “Whether it was through his animated facial expressions, sharing his presence with the different sides of the stage, or jumping off the piano… McMahon knew exactly how to get his fans to that feverish pitch that felt as if it could bring down the whole building.” – Rocknroll Ghost
Power-pop and piano-rock has never sounded so sincere and we are delighted to confirm ANDREW MCMAHON will be touring Australia in February. With help from Bobby Anderson he will be performing songs acoustically from his brilliant solo career along with definitive hits from Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin.

|In celebration of their fifth album, “Together”, Canadian-US super-collective The New Pornographers are primed to make their return to Australia this November. As perfect a pop outfit as you’re ever likely to find, The New Pornographers have always dreamed of finding a middle ground between Led Zeppelin and The 5th Dimension, which as it turns out is actually quite a good way of describing their mix of deceptively complex songwriting combined with glimmering hooks and arena-like power.|
And as Australian punters are more than aware the bright yet often bittersweet nature of what they do, including all those wonderful vocal harmonies, is an even better experience in the live setting.
