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.

RED INK – ‘CATCHING A KILLER’ EP LAUNCH!

RED INK – ‘Catching A Killer’ EP Launch Double Pass Giveaway: See below for details.

  RED INK are not your average band, they are not here for a quick rise to the top, to jump on a style trend or to ride a wave of hype. These guys are musicians, good ones. And over the last four years they have proved that they are here to do the hard yards. Their hundreds of gigs across the country and thousands of hours crafting their sound have paid off in the form of a strong underground following across Australia and sinking its claws in across the world.

The groups latest killer track is 3 minutes of violence, pop and adrenaline, with a chorus that will jam through your mind for days. The slurred audacity of John Jakubenko’s vocals takes your mind straight back to your craziest house party and that teetering feeling that things could get out of control – but no matter what, you’re gonna have a blast.

Another year gone by, another 20 odd festivals down and yet nothing could prepare you for the 3 day onslaught that has been 2010’s annual epicentre of music extravaganza.

  Miami Horror and the Bacardi Express

LMM: When you heard about playing on the Bacardi Express Tour, you thought?
MH: At first I wasn’t too aware of what would be involved. It wasn’t until we had to do some pre-press shots/interviews last year on the train that I realised how great an experience it would be and became very excited. The train is amazing and all the people we have met so far that are involved have been lovely.

LMM: What are you most looking forward to on the Bacardi Express tour?
MH: We’ve all been talking about the jam room and DJ booth. We are hoping to learn some classic songs to jam with the other bands. Hopefully we can jam some Supertramp.

LMM: Absolutely loved your music clip “Sometimes”, where did the inspiration for that come from?
MH: Originally we had a concept similar to a movie called “Logan’s Run”, but we let Moopjaw (Director/producer of “Sometimes”).
