Fangz W/ Spruced Moose + Lucid.

t’s only been three months since FANGZ first show but Sydney’s newest four-piece punk rock band have certainly been making waves in their local scene.  Kicking off their live shows with a four-week residency at the Hideaway Bar in Enmore. No one could have predicted that each night would see a line down the street - It seemed everyone wanted to join this beer-soaked, sweat fest!

FANGZ debut single “One For You One For Me”, recorded by Stevie Knight (The Dead Love) at Electric Sun studios, debuted exclusively on Triple J Unearthed 15th March 2019 and premiered at no.2 in the Triple J Unearthed Punk Charts (and later climbed to no.1).
The debut track was spun on Unearthed and then featured nationally on Triple J’s ‘Short.Fast.Loud’ within a week of its release, it’s undeniable this tune piqued some interest.  

Now comes the time for FANGZ to head off on their first Headline tour as they buckle up and hit the road up and down the east coast of Australia in support of their new EP “For Nothing”.

“Resistance is futile.”
-Declan Byrne (Triple J)

Nick Nuisance & The Delinquents 'Dumb Fuzz' EP Tour - Sydney

NN&TD are back with another searing EP, 'Dumb Fuzz' and will be touring this July, setting venues up and down the east coast alight. Dumb Fuzz is a collection of songs that have risen to the surface of their boiling live show. Come and get seared to a crisp.

Triple J Unearthed (Dave Ruby Howe): Nick and co have really mastered the art of the knock down, drag out, fall down, pass out, wake up, do it all again kinda garage rocker."

Happy Mag: “Nick Nuisance & The Delinquents are bullshit repellents. Their music is hard and fast, recorded straight to tape or blasted to your ears through an amp the size of your fridge.”

The Underground Stage: “Nick Nuisance & The Delinquents are well-named. A ratbag noise made by a bunch of scamps who are both making good jokes and thinking of ways to rob you. The sort of thing to make your neighbours claw their own brains out of their ears, it’s a garage racket fit to raise the dead. And probably get a laugh out of them while it’s at it. Japes.”

The Gooch Palms with Surf Trash + Special Guests

Professional party starters The Gooch Palms will bring their infectious brand of good-time garage rock to the masses this August as they take their new album 'III' on tour.

Spending the first part of 2019 traversing the US after their stellar SXSW performances,the band return home new album in tow to grace stages from Sydney to Melbourne, from Adelaide to Perth and everywhere in between.

Joining them on tour will be fellow Novacastrian rockers Surf Trash, who recently wrapped up their own sold out tour around the country.

Goochies can't contain their emotions "Saying we’re excited is an understatement!!! We can’t wait to tour this new album and for all you guys to hear the new songs live!.Continuing "We will be stacking the setlist with everyone’s favourite Gooch Palms hits from years past plus all the fresh bangers off the new album. Being able to play our songs to a live audience is the only reason we’re even in a band and it's been way too long since we’ve been around Australia!!! Can’t wait to be back on the road partying hard every night with you all!"

Recently announced on Yours & Owls this October, the fuzzed-up duo will also travel around the nation supporting Grinspoon.


The band released their long-teased third studio album 'III' in May which yielded singles'Busy Bleeding' featuring TOTTY's Kelly Jansch, 'Marfa Lights', 'Summertime', 'Are We Wasted?' and 'Coast To Coast' which was most recently added to triple j. There are some new sounds and some classic Gooch Palms moments but all in all it makes for one hell of an album and the pair have never been so stoked! It captures the best of the duo’s notoriously wild live shows with Kat commenting "It's a journey, we like to take people on a journey".

Late last year the Goochies joined mates DZ Deathrays for their killer triple j Like A Version of ‘Loveshack’ which quickly became a fan favourite, clocking over a combined390,000 views to date. View it here.

Get your dose of The Gooch Palms live this August.

he Money War - Life Is Better In Dreams Tour with Valley Onda + Special Guests

Just three months after the release of their debut album ‘Home’, The Money War are back with their new single ‘Life Is Better In Dreams’. The track was inspired by a recent trip back to Ollivierre’s homeland: the Caribbean island of Bequia. The result was a creative period where Ollivierre and Pep-per penned an album worth of new songs.

“It’s been 10 years since I visited and it’s reconnected me with a stronger sense of who I am,” he says. “It’s such a different way of life over there and a lot of things made sense - the way I am, the kind of music I gravitate towards”. This shines through in the new EP with some deeply personal songs that come as a direct response to their lives over the last few months.

The first single ‘Life is better in dreams’ - self produced by the duo - is a joyous ride of nostalgia that takes you into the minds of both Ollivierre and Pepper. The accompanying video clip shows them in their natural habitats; Pepper as a youngster on her family farm in regional WA and a young Ollivierre in the Caribbean. “We wanted to make a song that felt like one of those strange dreams that you wake up from and think, WTF? I came up with the song in a dream which is some crazy inception shit when you think about it” explains Ollivierre.

Since their formation in 2015, their success has seen them touring nationally with the likes of Meg Mac, Dope Lemon, Holy Holy, Neil Finn, and playing festivals both at home and abroad (South-bound, FOTSUN, SXSW). They’ve amassed over a million streams and multiple playlist adds on Spotify, secured airplay on radio stations across the globe including BBC6 (UK), KCRW (USA), NPR (USA) and cracked college radio charts in the US. In Australia, multiple singles received airplay on RTR, FBi, 4zzz and Double J, and “Recall” went on to be Triple J’s 5th most played track of 2017.

The 5 track EP - due for release in September - beckons you into the lives of The Money War through the strength of the band’s songwriting. The Money War will be embarking on a national tour in support of the EP including showcasing at Bigsound.

Hoon with Scab Baby + Cookbook Book Club

Fresh out the gate from 2 sell-out shows and a hometown multi-disciplinary arts mini-fest. Wollongong DIY garage punks are back, bringing their enigmatic and joyful spin on abrasive punk to the East Coast of Australia, with their sophomore E.P ‘Hoon 2.0’ in pull.

A band that is equally as animated and reckless in their performance, as their songwriting itself. Hoon have developed a chaotic neutral between composure and compulsion, with tracks that blend between raucous 2-minute punk to dynamic 5-minute medleys hinting towards psychedelia and sludge metal.

Hoon 2.0 seen it’s first light earlier in January 2019 with the first single ‘Partner In Crime’. The track was a preview and testament of the succinct and savage intentions driving the release. Described as “Unrelenting guitars, psychotic vocals, and pummeling drums – it’s we imagine it would sound like if Shellac, The Sex Pistols, and Refused had a demented lovechild” by Life Without Andy. Hoon 2.0 is the uncompromised outburst they’ve had stewing since their debut album in 2016.

Catch Hoon on the road this July and August, with their Wollongong psych, surf, garage and sludge punk counterparts Scab Baby as they celebrate the joy and chaos of Hoon 2.0.

Bench Press

Bench Press

Melbourne post-punks Bench Press will release their new album Not The Past, Can’t Be The Future on June 18 via Poison City Record. Soon after, the band will take the album out on tour around Australia and New Zealand in July / August.

On their second full-length, Bench Press have refined their sound by maintaining some the frantic aggression of their self-titled debut, but have also brought a tighter approach to both melodicism and structure. Almost every song clocks in at under three minutes as a testament to their ‘don’t bore us, get to the chorus’ philosophy. Bench Press project the wirey minimalism of early Talking Heads and Devo through a lens of heavier late-80s contemporary post-punk in a distinct shade of Melbourne garage. What was once easily categorised as post-punk can just as accurately be described as ‘really, really loud pop music’ and it’s really, really good.

The second taste of Not The Past, Can’t Be The Future comes via “Old. Self. Doubt”, which perfectly exemplifies the Bench Press ethos - it's short, sharp, clean and loud.

On Not The Past, Can’t Be The Future, thematically frontman Jack Stavrakis explores negative attitudes within himself and the wider community in order to grow and learn from mistakes. He pokes fun at bad attitudes - like overgrown boys at shows - but also attempts to highlight positives; such as feeling at home and a sense of awe at the determined. He does so with an eye towards the future and introspection on how he can improve as an individual.

Earlier in the year, Bench Press released the album’s first single “Respite”. A splintery dose of raucous catharsis you can dance to, upon its release "Respite" was #1 on the AMRAP Metro Chart and added to several stations around the country, including triple j Unearthedwhere Home & Hosed host Declan Byrne quipped, “gonna have to go home and get me thongs because i'm not crossing this jagged, sharp edged number barefoot”.

Foxblood 'Kill The Lights' Single Launch - Sydney

FOXBLOOD - KILL THE LIGHTS SINGLE TOUR

Foxblood’s story is one of evolution and today the next chapter commences. Foxblood’s sophomore album Grief & Mercy Sleep is coming on August 5th and today they release the fiery single ‘Kill The Lights’ alongside dates on the east coast.

Kill The Lights is the perfect introduction to the looming album, with guest vocals from Foxblood’s first vocalist and still lyricist Chris Millward, it marks a sonic shift and maturity from the group. Whilst still finding the poetry which built the band;

“At it’s core, ‘Kill The Lights’ is a song about dependency. Be that substance or sober, we all have our vices that make us feel like we’re coming undone.” – Vocalist/Bass Guitarist Anthony Syle.

Produced by the legendary, ARIA nominated Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Dream On Dreamer) Grief & Mercy Sleep is the tantalizing new sonic direction from the band. Seeing them double down on their strengths and reach out with searing new ability.

“Foxblood are one of the most exciting bands I’ve worked with, they have crafted a killer album with each song building with intensity and emotion in equal measure” – Forrester Savell

Boasting the new vocal prowess of Anthony Syle on bass and vocals duties alongside ex guitarist/full time vocalist Tom Beale, Foxblood has fleshed out their sound and have grown into a song writing juggernaut.

To coincide with the release, Foxblood will be embarking on three dates along the East Coast with supports to soon be announced.

The group became what it is today with the inclusion of Nick Lee, a jazz-based percussionist, table-tennis professional and human metronome who plays Hela’s drums. Their most recent addition is Samuel Cordeiro, a music student and Hela’s bass player.

Warwick Kennedy -
Creating sounds that marry the intimacy of singer songwriters such as Elliott Smith with the visceral ambition of a band like Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds.

Pridelands - 'Dark Sources Tour' w/BLKLST - Sydney

NEW WORLD ARTISTS PRESENTS

PRIDELANDS - DARK SOURCES TOUR
SYDNEY - THE CHIPPO HOTEL 18+
SPECIAL GUESTS: BLKLST, ARTISAN & BROKEN EARTH

Hailing from Mount Gambier, South Australia and relocating to their new home of Melbourne, Pridelands return with brand new single, Dark Sources and a string of live shows supported by BLKLST.

Dark Sources is the follow up to their 2018 EP, Any Colour You Desire. Dark Sources was recorded with Lance Prenc at Sing Sing Studio and Prenc Audio, mastered by Mike K at Rogue Planet Mastering and mixing duties handled by Adam 'Nolly' Getgood (Northlane, Periphery, Devin Townsend to name a few).

Co-Vocalist Joshua Cory explains the meaning behind the song, "It's the feeling of holding forbidden knowledge of sinister origin. The song describes the pressure of feeling silenced by the weight of things you've discovered by chance. If we didn't know about the darker sides to the world and industries we've found ourselves in as people over the years, would we be better, happier people? Would we be better off without it?"

Pridelands are no strangers to the live scene.They have shared the stage with local heavyweights Northlane, Hellions, Saviour as well as international acts such as The Ghost Inside, Attila, Stray From The Path and Counterparts. In December 2018, they embarked on their maiden 'Any Colour You Desire' headline tour, with all shows almost a sell out.

2019 kicked off on a high when Pridelands won the triple j Unearthed competition where they performed the Unify Festival main stage and scoring the triple j Unearthed Feature Artist that week.

In support of the Dark Sources single, Pridelands will be performing a string of headline shows across the east coast in June before hitting the road in August supporting The Brave and Polaris.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
