Double single launch - Moniker ft Georgia Mooney and Joan Banoit

Double single launch - Moniker ft Georgia Mooney and Joan Banoit

SynthPop auteurists Moniker are launching their new single featuring Georgia Mooney from All My Exes Live in Texas. Label mates Joan Banoit launch their single ‘Bill’ ahead of their imminent, long awaited album release in May.

A night of brand new sounds presented by Lazy Thinking Records.

Moniker:
The world needs a superhero. Moniker is no hero! Moniker is the alternative. Moniker is a new project and brainchild of illuminati from Australia’s underground avant rock and pop scenes.
Born through collaboration in the studio, Moniker teams up with artists whose previous work is found on tracks by figures as diverse as Passenger, Katalyst, Sarah McLeod, Jack Ladder, Tina Harrod, Joan Banoit and even ARIA nominated jazz.
https://www.facebook.com/MonikerLives/

Joan Banoit:
Informed as much by the cutting-edge electronica of Jlin, Arca, Burial and Autechre as they are classic synth pop, art rock and modern composition Joan Banoit is the stage name of songwriter, composer, arranger and ex St Mary’s choirboy Julian Bright. Bursting onto the scene several years ago with a series of Marrickville warehouse gigs, they signed to new Sydney label Lazy Thinking in 2017 and released their debut single and video ‘Bet Me’ in June 2018, followed by ‘Mount Agony’ in October 2018, with an album to follow.

Thornhill 'Coven' Aus Tour - Sydney 18+

Destroy All Lines Presents:

Thornhill
Coven Australian Tour 2019
with special guests
Diamond Construct
Above, Below & Inertia

Saturday 4th May
The Chippo Hotel, Sydney 18+
Doors at 8:00 pm

The start of 2018 saw Melbourne metalcore outfit Thornhill release their EP Butterfly upon the world; not just another release for the band, but an allegory of what was to follow. The five piece began to break free of their cocoon. That evolution saw them spend the year touring alongside bands such as In Hearts Wake, Make Them Suffer, and Polaris; as well as having one of the most talked about sets from this year’s Unify Gathering. Now the story continues as the band spread their wings further proudly announcing their first Australian headline tour which is one you won't want to miss out on, and taking the up and coming Diamond Construct along for the ride.

Much like Thornhill, Diamond Construct have outgrown their original surroundings, pushing out of the town of Taree and onto the national stage. 2018 saw Diamond Construct sign to Greyscale Records and release their riff-laiden single Submerged, before jumping on the road with label mates Alpha Wolf and Justice For The Damned to show Australia what they can do.

Now that both bands have cut their teeth and developed sounds and styles truly their own, the future is theirs, and these shows will prove why Thornhill and Diamond Construct are the two Australian bands that the world needs to keep their eye on.

Suburban Dark - Smell the Roses EP Launch

Suburban Dark - Smell the Roses EP Launch

Following on from their 2018 full-length album Death From Below, Suburban Dark continue their unrelenting rate of attack with Smell The Roses – a grim and brooding 6-track release maintaining the dark and heavy ethos of the production duo while honing the focus of their violent sonic approach. The details of the nightmarish visions are richer in detail, but the Sydney boys’ “Fight Beats” approach is still in full force.

Chris Irvine (one half of the duo) describes its bleak underlying narrative: “Smell The Roses narrative is in a similar vein to Death From Below, only it’s set after the rebellion ... and we lost. It embodies a unifying stance of power from a position of having little to nothing.”

Ft. support from Mathas, Rapaport & Alchemist.

DONNA AMINI - 'Suburban Surf' Single Launch

DONNA AMINI - 'Suburban Surf' Single Launch

‘Suburban Surf’, the new single from Donna Amini, charges forward from the onset; a powerful definition of her artistry that has continued to flourish with strength into 2019. Following on from her dominating ‘Big Machine’ release last year, Amini returns with a new sense of rawness layered over her work. A songwriter with honesty and emotion worn brilliantly on her sleeve, Amini’s ‘Suburban Surf’ is more guitar-heavy than the laidback title may suggest.

With the release of ‘Big Machine’ in 2018, Donna Amini made her presence known, a fine return after her debut album Night Underground stoked fires of excitement surrounding her music and introduced more music fans to an intriguing and wickedly clever musicianship. Enjoying success online and on radio (‘Big Machine’ added to rotation across Double J, Triple J Unearthed and 2SER), Amini laid solid groundwork for more new music to come.

Screaming Females (US) AUS Tour - The Chippo Sydney

BONE SOUP is stoked to announce New Jersey punks Screaming Females announce long awaited Australian return!

"Paternoster sounds vast, colossal, eternal. She sounds like wrought iron and California redwoods... She sounds like an eternal, elemental force" - Stereogum

It's been almost three years since New Jersey's prolific indie-shred punks Screaming Females have touched down in Australia and today the trio have announced their imminent return to the country playing a slew of shows in May off the back of their seventh LP, All at Once.

Renowned worldwide for their blistering live shows, fiercely DIY ethos and insane guitar chops courtesy of dynamic frontwoman Marissa Paternoster, whose unparalleled guitar wielding prowess has earned her a place in SPIN Magazine’s Top 100 Guitarists Of All Time list, Screaming Females have clocked up loads of kudos in their 10+ years as a band, receiving nods of approval and sharing stages with influential acts like The Breeders, Garbage and Dinosaur JrJr.

Screaming Females 2016 Australian tour saw punters scrambling for tickets upon first announce, culminating in sold out venues across the country and unforgettable live shows. Don't sleep on this one.

Verge Collection - Back in the Saddle

New members, new gear and a swathe of new songs Verge Collection are jumping back into the saddle for a quick trip round the country with friends new and old. Like a pair of well worn jeans, Verge Collection are no strangers to a sweaty night of full-strength beer and passionate sing-alongs. It's time to dust off the cobwebs, break-in some new boots and rack up some frequent flyers. 
Following the success of their debut album 'Flanuer' and a run of sell out shows, Verge Collection went deep into studio land and are almost ready for the release of their as of yet untitled second Album. Coming out of hibernation for the release of the frenetic pop single 'Synthetic Fibres' it's starting to look like the bands biggest year yet.
So giddy up and we'll see yall down at the watering hole.

The Southern River Band
Feb
23
8:00 PM20:00

The Southern River Band

“In a world where starting off a biography with "In a world where" is the norm, The Southern River Band are apparently no different. In the very same world, where labeling oneself is encouraged, where being able to describe one’s style is expected, The Southern River Band neither know, nor care how to fit themselves into these pigeonholes. Head south on Perth's so-called "Freeway", jump on Roe Highway, hang a right on Nicholson Road, go through the busiest roundabout in Australia, and you'll find yourself in Thornlie, the home of The Southern River Band. A country town in the heart of the suburbs, where the jukeboxes stock very little other than the very same songs you would've heard reverberating out of them in 1970's. They say you're a product of your surroundings, who are "they"? Nobody knows. But, they're not far wrong. You're bound to find one of the boys recycling their spare change, putting on 'Come Back Again' for the 3rd time in the space of 4 hours on any given Friday arvo.”

Within the first year of formation, The Southern River Band has literally gone from playing to a handful of people and the bar staff at The Thornlie Tavern in Perth’s south east corner to becoming one of Australia’s most popular and exciting new acts. Rock and roll with a dash of Boogie Woogie and a sprinkle of Country, or as one guy at the bar once told us, “Just sounds like a goddamn Saturday night”.

The band’s musicianship, stage presence and exceptional live performance quickly earned them the title ‘The band I told you about…’ and were nominated for WAM’s “Most Popular Live Act” award of 2016 & 2017.

Influenced by the purest rock and roll bands of the 70’s and 80’s, from timeless melodies written by Bob Seger and Glenn Frey to heavier riffs in Van Halen and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band’s plethora of songs covers various genres, all delivered in the explosive SRB style.

SRB has received a firm nod from members of Status Quo, The Angels, Pond, You Am I, The Stems, Cosmic Psychos, Karnivool and Ian Moss.

“These boys don’t fuck around, Cal Kramer is possibly the best front man in Australia” - X-Press Mag (AUS)

“The Western Australian juggernaut pumped out one of the most entertaining and genuinely thrilling performances to grace Queenscliff in years.” - Beat Magazine (VIC, AUS)

 “These boys have built a reputation around boozin’, schmoozin’ and bruisin’ . The Southern River Band now have their sights set on world domination.” - Happy Mag (AUS)

 “The Southern River Band are making a name for themselves around Perth as the cure and cause of Saturday night fever” - The West Australian Newspaper (WA, AUS)

 “In less than twelve months they have risen from an overdressed Tavern band to being placed firmly on the map as one of WA’s premier rock bands and seem to be rocketing further into the realms of stardom just as quickly. I will certainly be watching this band again and implore those reading this to hurry down to the very next show you can, the live show is the only way to truly experience the sweet chaos of this act. The local act’s rise to power over the last 12 months has been monumental” - Avenoir Magazine (WA, AUS)

 “The night began with The Southern River Band taking to the stage and boy did they lead the crowd in a rock-n-roll dance party. Featuring behind the head guitar solos, on stage appearances from parents and hints of some Van Halen like goodness.” - Colosoul Magazine (WA, AUS)

 “One of These Nights (I’ll Be Gone)’ its seven feel good minutes of classic guitar drenched rock n roll.” - TONEDEAF (AUS)

 “Best band in Australia” - Dom Mariani (The Stems)

- Nominated for WAM “Most Popular Live Act” 2017 award

- Nominated for WAM “Most Popular Live Act” 2016 award

Mosquito Coast - Sweet Talking Tour (Sydney)

Perth dream-popsters Mosquito Coast are heading out on a national tour and stopping in at The Chippo Hotel, Sydney with special guests to be announced!

The tour is in support of a new single ‘Sweet Talking’ to be released on 18 Jan – the 2nd single off their forthcoming LP, which was recorded in NYC with French producer Nicolas Vernhes (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, The War on Drugs, Moodoïd and Dirty Projectors).

The live show sees Naomi Robinson (vocals/guitar) and Conor Barton (who’s now up front on keys), joined by new drummer Oscar van Gass and Mitch Mack on bass.

The new album will be released in the first quarter of 2019.

💖


~~~

“…Mosquito Coast have grown in leaps and bounds. Nostalgic, dreamy and with more of a rock influence, their new album sounds like a cracker.” X-PRESS MAG

“…They’ve evolved from a fledgling act winning Triple J’s Unearthed High, to a confident rock band owning the stage, and ultimately the night.” GROK

“Mosquito Coast’s new sound is impassioned, stronger than ever, and aching to be heard.” ISOLATED NATION

“Four members, three synths and Naomi Robinson's big voice give them a presence that they wouldn't have imagined at 17… Their enlarged sound, mix of backing vocals and a willingness to take sharp left turns in songs makes the show exciting.”

Hot Stuff Comedy - Chilli VS Comedians - $5 Comedy

Hot Stuff Comedy - Chilli VS Comedians - $5 Comedy

The idea is simple, you (the audience) shout out scenarios, and a panel of 3 comedians who are on stage, will take a bite of a hot chilli if they have taken part in said scenario and then try to tell their story!

For example, the host will ask " who here ever had... " and the audience start to shout out suggestion like. "embarrased themeselves in public", "quit a job in a spectacular way", "‘had a threesome’ etc etc.

Any of the comedians who have at some point in their lives had that scenario happen to them have to take a bite of chilli. The audience then have to choose which comedian will tell their story. They will probably pick the comedian suffering hardest!

Rules:
The comedian will have to keep their story to under 3 minutes

They each have one amnesty card which will get them a glass of milk/ water

The game will end after a set time, or one comedian has finished through their chillies

FEAT Chilli Eaters.
TBA

Also on the night, a bevy of comedians performing a regular set for you

Born Lion 'Bigger Than Jesus Festival'
Feb

Born Lion 'Bigger Than Jesus Festival'

Few bands get the kind of dream run that Born Lion had from their formation and the release of their debut album Final Words. There was the multi-record deal with Four/Four, three singles scoring rotation on Triple J ("D for Danger", "Good Times Jimmy", "Good Dogs Play Dead"), a litany of hard rock dream support slots (The Hives, The Bronx, Royal Blood, Mamozets, Karnivool) and an ARIA nomination for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album as the cherry on top in 2015.

It was a simple plan, well executed - work ridiculously hard and things, hopefully, will work out. Their searing blend of razor-sharp punk’n’roll and monsterous pop hooks connected with a wide audience. From the fevered front row-mosh-warrior to the polite steering-wheel-tapper, Final Words was a powerful magnet for lovers of an infectious dual guitar attack and fuzzed-up riffs that seemed like they’d happily throw on a pair of gloves and size-up Godzilla.

The follow up came in the form of 'Celebrate the Lie' in early 2018. The band headed to Adelaide to work with Jimmy Baldertsone (Luca Brasi, High Tension and Grenadiers) . Working around the clock for two-weeks straight, the team crafted a high-energy, zero-bullshit album that skyrockets the dynamic range of the band, focusing on lean songwriting coupled with wild sonic experimentation. The result is a diverse exploration of how far you can take the distorted guitars and melodic howl experience, fearless stepping over commonly-held boundaries to take in everything from Converge-esque off-time destruction to the full-tilt groove’n’croon of acts like Queens Of The Stone Age.

 

The album was named Tonedeaf's 'Album of the Week' and was met with high praise throughout the music community. The band found themselves sharing the stage with the likes of Shihad, Guttermouth and Ecca Vandal. Pulling from material that spans their two full length records and a debut EP, the band set about their own national tour in June/July 2018. It saw the band playing their longest and most intense live shows to date.

 

Not being a band that can stay still for very long they are now back and with a vengeance. The band has curated their own touring mini-festival. With the likes of Rick Dangerous, Fait Accompli, Dropping honey and a reformed Bitchslap on board, the line-ups are wild. To top this off they have new music on the way in the form of new single, 'Bigger Than Jesus'. It's a celebration of all things rock'n'roll and sees the band taking their song writing credential to a whole new level. With sharp witted lyrics combined with air tight riffage, it culminates in a mass chant singalong. It's everything you've come to expect from the band and more.
