Glassjaw

^^

When: Monday 15th January
Where: Metro Theatre

Long Island, New York Post-Hardcore legends Glassjaw are today announcing that they will be gracing Australian shores in January 2018 in a tour presented by MJR Presents. The influential and revered outfit are renowned for their intense live shows and their bombastic and hard-edged music. The storied band, who have been instrumental in the formation of underground music scenes in Eastern USA and the UK, have released two studio albums including Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence (2000) and Worship and Tribute (2002), as well as EPs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (1997), El Mark (2005), Our Color Green (The Singles) (2011) and Coloring Book (2011). This tour will be the first time that the band has been in Australia since 2014 for Soundwave and their "sidewave" shows with Dillinger Escape Plan and Dir En Grey. Heavy Mag described their set "Glassjaw are LOUD, yet fantastic. It takes a special kind of band that can manage to be so off kilter, yet maintain some degree of melody." and FasterLouder praised their Soundwave set - "Long Island’s Glassjaw had no trouble holding their audience’s attention, with their sprawling post-hardcore delivered with volume and vigour. Of course, it helps having such a charismatic frontman as the sky-punching and hip-shaking Daryl Palumbo."

There are people who’ve never seen us before, and we have to impress them. There are fans that keep coming back, and we want to surprise them,” Thorogood said. "This is my job,” he added. “I’ve always loved it, and I love it now more than ever.” From coast to coast, the critics agree. “I’m happy to say, after all these years, that George is still ‘Bad To The Bone’ and he’s never let go of the true spirit of rock ’n roll!" L.A. Daily News. “Thorogood is a guitar-blazing revivalist whose enthusiasm and showmanship make the music fresh.” Baltimore Sun. “He’s got charisma and personality to burn, a fact that becomes evident the moment he walks on stage.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This year Thorogood released Party of One, the first solo album of his 40-year-plus career, marking a true back-to-the-roots approach for the singer and guitarist.

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.

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. Wrexham UK pop-punks Neck Deep have become the most successful British band in the history of their genre, at an average age of just 23. They’ve scored Kerrang! and APMA awards along the way and worked alongside legends like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182. 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
