Trial Kennedy ‘Living Undesigned’ National Tour – May/June 2011 – Tour News

On May 13, Trial Kennedy releases its long awaited second album, Living Undesigned. To celebrate, the band is taking their show on the road for a string of album tour dates around the country in May.

On paper, you’d have to wonder how Trial Kennedy is even still a band.

Two years ago, the Melbourne rock outfit were perched at the edge of something big. After two killer EPs (2004’s Present for a Day and 2005’s Picture Frame), their Nick DiDia-produced debut album, New Manic Art, was garnering the sort of critical acclaim every band aspires to. Songs such as ‘Neighbours’ and ‘Colour Day Tours’ became instant Triple J anthems. The band toured hard, earning a burgeoning Australian fan base to go with their stellar live rep, and coveted support spots with the likes of Fall Out Boy and Birds Of Tokyo. Their star was rising.

And then… well, then a whole lot of bad mojo went down. The band’s original bass player left, there was illness, the daily struggle of balancing day jobs and personal relationships with artistic careers, and the band parted ways with their management and label.

  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.

  Sydney based genre defying MM9 are about to hit the road to celebrate the release of their latest single ‘Let It Take Over’ and tickets are selling fast! The boys are fresh from the national tour with Karnivool as the main support, which won them rave reviews across the country from fans and critics alike.

MM9 is a band whose versatility is matched only by the sheer potency of their stage presence. While maintaining a tireless schedule of touring throughout 2008/2009, MM9 finally released their highly anticipated first full length album ‘The Air Between’ in March, achieving at Top 10 AIR Chart debut. Constantly looking forward, always evolving, MM9 are a band to listen to, witness, and lose yourself in.

  Arriving back to Australia after showcase performances for Musexpo and Music Matters across the UK, USA and Hong Kong, Drawn from Bees are about to jump right back on a plane to Sydney to embark on a national tour in support of their May 21 released album Fear Not The Footsteps Of The Departed.

Fear Not… is the band’s most multi-layered and complex release to date, juxtaposing Drawn from Bees’ most heartbreakingly beautiful songs with their most intellectual rock concepts and experimental soundscapes – sampling choirs and iPhones alike amongst almost spiritual laments of loss and love.
