Grouplove

When: Thursday 15h February
Where: Metro Theatre

Prepare yourselves Australia, because indie-pop hit-makers Grouplove will be hitting stages and thrilling audiences across the country in 2018! Much-loved visitors to our shores, the Californian band will be playing what are sure to be three wild nights in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in February. Currently touring across America, Grouplove will be bringing their energetic live show and infectious tunes to Australia for the first time in more than 18 months. Be sure to get your dancing shoes on, because they’ll be sure to have their new single ‘Remember That Night’ in tow, along with a setlist chock full of fan favourites from all three of their albums. Fronted by the husband-and-wife team of Hannah Hooper (vocals, keyboards) and Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Grouplove also includes Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums), and Daniel Gleason (bass). The five-piece are renowned for their relentlessly positive live performances, bringing an energy and pure joy to the stage that is rarely seen in modern music. Formed in 2009 after the band members met at an arts colony on the Greek Island of Crete, Grouplove have been a household name ever since the release of their debut album Never Trust a Happy Song. Party anthems such as ‘Tongue Tied’ and ‘Itching on a Photograph’ quickly cemented the band as a staple of festivals, sold-out shows and indie radio around the world. The group’s follow-up album Spreading Rumours produced the hits ‘Ways to Go’ and ‘Shark Attack’, while their most recent full-length effort - 2016’s critically acclaimed Big Mess gave the world catchy sing-alongs ‘Welcome to Your Life’ and ‘Good Morning’. Big Mess was produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Band Of Horses, The Shins) and reached the top 20 of the Australian charts after its September 2016 release. Grouplove have been far from quiet since then, with the release of the Little Mess EP and new single ‘Remember the Night’ this year. You might also recognise their distinctive style as the creators of the closing credits theme song on the Netflix Original Series ‘Bojack Horseman’. "We've been writing a lot of new music recently - Hannah in particular is starting to come into her own in a new and very honest way. She is really starting to show her fire. Hope you can feel it,” said Grouplove’s Christian Zucconi about the new single.

George Ezra

^^

When: Tuesday 6th March
Where: Enmore Theatre

With Special Guest: Ainslie Wills

Bringing his unmistakable baritone pipes back to our golden shores, acclaimed 23-year-old English singer-songwriter George Ezra will be enchanting crowds in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane on a newly announced Australian tour next March. With his latest single, the joyous romp 'Don't Matter Now', fresh in our ears, Ezra is wasting no time in rescheduling some regrettably cancelled July shows. George Ezra first came to prominence back in 2015 as he rode the sunset across Falls and Southbound Festivals on the back of his hugely successful record Wanted on Voyage. A precocious debut from a young man with a voice well beyond his years, the album featured massive singles 'Budapest' and 'Blame It On Me' and went on to sell a total of 3 million units worldwide. He was also nominated for 4 Brit Awards, MTV Music Awards, Q Awards and the prestigious Ivor Novello - a tribute to songwriting talents forged in the shadows of heroes like Bob Dylan and Hank Williams. As anticipation for a follow-up album grows, the Bristol native has been busy wowing crowds in a series of “top secret” shows across the UK. Debuting new material and getting himself match-fit, he also took in a cheeky Glastonbury set, after which DIYmag.com proclaimed that we were in for a “smasher of a new record”. With a touring schedule that takes in some of the biggest festivals on the planet including Pukkelpop and Lollapalooza, George Ezra will arrive on Australian soil in peak form. Also appearing at these shows will be Melbourne-based spark Ainslie Wills. Dealing in powerfully quixotic song craft, Wills has forged her reputation with an enchanting voice and jaw-dropping musical dexterity. Her debut album You Go Your Way, I'll Go Mine was nominated for the Australia Music Prize and its tonal turns and lyrical twists will provide the perfect foil for Ezra's earthy propulsions.

Visiting capital cities this March with Boat Show and Dear Seattle in tow, the tour will see anticipated second record Blend Inn brought to life following its release on Friday, February 9 on Farmer & The Owl via Inertia Music. Premiering on Good Nights on triple j with Bridget Hustwaite, “I Wanna Be Everybody” emerges as the infectious and surprisingly vulnerable pop-rock song that Summer was missing. On the track, Hockey Dad navigate themes of social anxiety amid the charged riffs, ever-confident vocals and punk-styled drums for which they’ve become synonymous. The single joins first single and instant favourite “ Homely Feeling ” on Blend Inn , and is set to have band rooms across the country united in a chorus of “I wanna be everybody, everybody / I just can’t be everybody, everybody ”. Where their 2016 debut album Boronia celebrated the long days of summers past and the sublime naivety of youth, Blend Inn is Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming coming to us with more perspective after relentless touring took them far from the streets and waves of their hometown of Windang, NSW.

Formed in the mid-90's, Good Charlotte have six albums and two collaborations under their belt. The band was integral in establishing a global critical mass for the pop-punk genre. The group’s 2000 self-titled debut laid the foundation with the singles ‘Little Things’ and ‘Festival Song’. Then in 2002, the breakthrough success of The Young and the Hopeless catapulted pop-punk into the stratosphere and set them on the path to worldwide superstardom. Good Charlotte are ecstatic to get back to their true purpose and continue sharing their music.

Vegas screamo rock gods Falling In Reverse walk that fine line between genius and insanity, self-seriousness and self-deprecation, implosion and explosion! The five piece have built a fanatical fan base off the back of the ridiculous vocal range of frontman Ronnie Radke and their enigmatic, unrelenting live shows that are nothing short of spectacular! Chase Atlantic are a trio of brothers and one longtime friend who produce, perform, and passionately conjure up dark alternative pop punctuated by rock and R&B! These Aussies blur the lines between a nocturnal aesthetic and primal bliss
