Broods: Don't Feed The Pop Monster Australian 2019 Tour

^^

When: Tuesday 28th May
Where: Enmore Theatre

Born into an exceptionally musical family, frontwoman Georgia and brother Caleb had their breakthrough as Broods with the 2014 single ‘Bridges’ – a dark slice of electronic pop, released in a post-Lorde music era. That track appeared on their Joel Little-produced full-length debut “Evergreen”, an album that debuted at #1 on the New Zealand Albums Chart and #5 on the Australian Albums Chart. With “Evergreen” winning four gongs at the 2015 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards (including Album of the Year), Broods released their sophomore album “Conscious” in June 2016, with its lead single ‘Free' reaching the top #10 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart. Soon after, the duo found themselves on the road with Sam Smith on a sold-out US tour, before going on to play leading festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands, and sharing stages with artists including Ellie Goulding, Haim, CHVRCHES and Taylor Swift’s reputation Stadium Tour in both Australia and New Zealand. Returning in 2018 with new music and a new focus, frontwoman Georgia Nott and her brother Caleb have gone back to basics and embraced their purest instincts to “make songs that were true to us, without hiding behind any kind of façade”, says Georgia. The first two singles from the upcoming album, the “brazen, euphoric” (Atwood Magazine) single ‘Peach’ and ‘Everything Goes (Wow)’, have been met with critical acclaim – with both tracks dominating radio play across Australia. Over the Australia Day long-weekend ‘Peach’ came in at #19 in triple j’s Hottest 100 – making 2018 their fourth feature in the annual Australian music poll and their first time to crack the top 20. On the new album, “Don’t Feed the Pop Monster”, Broods reunited with their long-time producer Joel Little (best known for his work on Lorde’s “Pure Heroine”), and also enlisted the producer Tommy English (BØRNS, K.Flay, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness). At turns ethereal and frantic, moody and euphoric, the result is an album that’s elegantly sculpted yet defies all pop convention. Broods will be joined by special guests the LA two-piece Moby Rich, who turn melancholy songs into bold, pop hooks and visuals. Their debut single, ‘Yoko Ono’, is a euphoric-by-way-of-ethereal burst of joy; a love song (or at least their version) about finding someone to match your strange. Broods are bringing their new music back to Australia in an all-new live show – don’t miss the chance to be among the first in the world to hear the new songs from “Don’t Feed the Pop Monster” live, alongside Broods’ catalogue of hits.

Previous releases on Red Bull Records “Sick” (EP) (2013), “Disgusting” (2014) and “Aggressive” (2016) have won the group a legion of loyal followers, but it’s the new and third full-length album “Disease” that has seen them cement their reputation as a global force in the hardcore genre.Disease is brave in its painstakingly riff-driven examination of the demons that come from a dark depression. “The album is a whirlwind of emotion,” Shomo explains. “Crazy highs, crazy lows, and lots of intensity. This record isn’t about winning anything. It’s about trying to even begin to learn how to deal with things. It’s hard to process just how dark you can get, what you can really put yourself through with expectations. It’s like starting from the beginning all over again. At the end of the day, it is a very dark album.” “Compelling, relatable and genuinely edge-of-your-seat listening...” – Album of the Week, Kerrang! “Get your fists in the air, embrace someone you care about and come grab life by the throat with Beartooth!” – Heavy Mag. “12 tracks of catchy, heavy, venomous brilliance.” – Invicta Mag.
