Grinspoon: 20 Years of Better Living

^^

When: Friday 7th July
Where: Enmore Theatre

Post-grunge Aussie rockers, Grinspoon have announced a 20th Anniversary deluxe edition of the album that kickstarted their long-standing music career, Guide To Better Living, alongside an epic 27-date national tour of Australia, playing the album cover to cover for fans throughout June, July, August and September. It's 1995. A band from Lismore named Grinspoon submitted the track, Sickfest to triple j's Unearthed national band comp in its inaugural year. To everyone's amazement, they won - and for the next two months the song was the station's number one request. Twenty years later - with the album chalking up a double decade of acclaim - Grinspoon are emerging from hiatus to celebrate their debut album with the Guide To Better Living tour. Supported nationally by Hockey Dad, they'll be playing the album cover to cover across June-September 2017, alongside a selection of later favourites from their albums that followed. The tour takes in 27 dates across the nation - the first tour of such scale since the band went on hiatus in 2013, broken only for a support slot on Cold Chisel's Perfect Crime tour of Australia in 2015.

In Hearts Wake

^^

When: Friday 14th July
Where: Enmore Theatre

In Hearts Wake have announced their first and only Australian tour for 2017, which will see the band play their biggest headlining shows to date. Kicking off in Perth on July 10, the tour will wind its way around the country, taking in venues in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Joining In Hearts Wake on the road will be Japanese mosh warriors Crossfaith, who haven’t been seen in these parts since their epic sets on Soundwave 2015. Also trekking across the ocean will be Sheffield bruisers While She Sleeps who were last spied in Australia destroying stages before Bring Me The Horizon in February. Sydney up-and-comers Polaris round out this epic line up. Alongside the tour announcement, In Hearts Wake have revealed their brand new track “Warcry”, a preview of what the Byron Bay crew are currently working on. In Hearts Wake explain the concept of “Warcry”: “A Warcry is made to rally those for battle or to gather participants together for a campaign. The current systems in place are violently pitting us against each other, propelling our species towards our own extinction. This track is a call to come together, to unite peacefully against the forces that are currently destroying life on Earth and the resources that support it. The time is now. “The words of the verse are the vision of a Seer, who speaks of a dark and horrific future to come. The chorus defies this nihilistic prophesy outright. We, the New Generation, will not idly sit back and watch the abuse of our world. If we do not take timely action, then we are passively contributing to the Seer’s bleak prediction. Our inaction is part of the problem; let us answer the Warcry and become part of the solution. What kind of a world do you wish for tomorrow–to ensure a tomorrow…”

Hitmen DTK

^^

When: Saturday 29th July
Where: The Bridge Hotel

The Hitmen were brash, bombastic and inventive. They were also victims of their status as the first in a long line of Australian underground bands of the late ‘70s/early '80s to cross the battle-lines and take their rock and roll campaign to the suburbs. The Hitmen peddled a broad mix of metallic pop, flamethrower Detroit rock and re-vamped ‘60s standards, as well as their own wide range of originals. With their roots in the ground breaking Radio Birdman, the Hitmen sought overground success and clearly influenced dozens of bands that followed in their wake. That their status as one of the Australia’s hardest-working bands never translated to huge record sales probably came down to the fact that the major labels that courted and signed the band had no idea what to do with them. But the thousands of fans whose ears they opened to new sounds did - and voted with their feet by packing venues the length and breadth of Australia. IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO MEDIA & FANS: The Band wish to inform you that Klondike will not be joining us on our 2017 “Solid as a Rock” Australian Tour. Klondike Living overseas has made things almost impossible for Touring. We have been busy rehearsing with our new Guitarist Vince Cuscuna Ex Buffalo Revisited and the sound is bloody amazing! You won't be disappointed! This has been a difficult decision but a necessary one. We wish Klondike all the best in the Touring and Promoting of his solo band.

Ill Nino

^^

When: Friday 4th August
Where: Metro Theatre

Hailing from New Jersey/New York, ILL NIÑO are a not just a meteorological event, they are a musical force to be reckoned with. Their revered album ‘Revolution Revolución’ marked what was the beginning for these founding fathers of Latin metal. ILL NIÑO offered something different, they brought a flair and ethnicity to the metal scene. With their jaw dropping percussive artillery and Flamenco guitar tones, the band meshed the Latino passion with an aggressive metal assault. Their live show is where they shine: driving, energetic and animated, not many bands can match them. The fans are what pushes ILL NIÑO to continue to dominate after a decade.
