When: Thursday 1st November
Where: Metro Theatre

Premiered during their celebrated return to Splendour in the Grass, today SAFIA give us the official release of new single 'Starlight', alongside the exciting announcement of an intimate set of East Coast tour dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this November. The band will be supported by fellow Canberran Genesis Owusu on all tour dates. 'Starlight' is a step forward in the band's sound and is a soon-to-be-classic. With sprawling vocals and an intoxicating beat, 'Starlight' is ready to be your springtime soundtrack. Says SAFIA, "At its core Starlight is a song about letting go, and the world that it creates is designed to capture that feeling. In retrospect the song also represents an important shift in perspective, both creatively and personally." Continuing their affinity for pushing boundaries, the band have collaborated with local VR/AR artist SUTU on animated single artwork that comes to life with the use of the Eyejack app. Download the 'EyeJack' app, tap on 'SAFIA' and tap on 'Launch AR'. The band is fresh from making their debut appearance in China at Shanghai's Concrete & Grass Festival and in what will be their first Australian headline tour since 2016, SAFIA is bringing their new show on a special run of intimate East Coast venues (strictly one show per city). They have also been announced on a raft of upcoming festival line ups including This That, Beyond the Valley, Origin Fields, The Grass is Greener, and a headline slot for Corona Sunsets. A firm festival favourite, always delivering “a winning festival set” (The Music), their recent Splendour performance saw them pack out the Mix Up stage and gather rave reviews from media and fans alike. Released earlier in 2018, previous single 'Freakin' Out' is now at over 1 million streams and also saw the release of a special acoustic version. 'Cellophane Rainbow' is sitting at over 2 million streams since its release at the end of 2017 and was the first piece of new music from the band since their acclaimed debut album Internal was released in 2016. Internal landed at #2 on the ARIA Album chart, #1 on the iTunes chart, received ARIA and J Award nominations and saw the band complete a sold-out run of national album shows. 2018 has seen them perform to capacity crowds on the in augural The Drop Festival, and Mountain Sounds Festival.

Smash Mouth: Australian Tour 2018

^^

When: Thursday 8th November
Where: Enmore Theatre

Californian rockers, Smash Mouth, have just announced they will return to Australia in November 2018 to play shows across the East Coast. The band will bring their unique sound that they have well and truly created and a style that is comfortably their very own. Smash Mouth were regular chart toppers and rode the wave of the 90’s ‘alternative’ music scene, selling in excess of 10 million albums worldwide. They are no strangers to our audiences with songs like the All Star, Can’t Get Enough of You Baby, Walkin’ On The Sun and celebrated Monkees classic I’m A Believer, all of which have become radio staples and included on party playlists everywhere! Last year, the multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated band celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut, smash-hit album “Fush Yu Mang”. Out of nowhere, the single Walkin’ On The Sun was an immediate international sensation and quickly shot to No. 1 on the US Billboard charts, and eventually boosting the album sales to over 3 million copies in the US alone. In the two decades since, Smash Mouth have not slowed down. In fact, they are still vibrant as ever with their groovy beats, memorable melodies and fun lyrics. Their 1999 release ‘Astrolounge’ was a brilliant follow-up album boasting three top- ten hits (“All-Star”, “Then The Morning Comes”, and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”) and sales for that album nearly doubled those for their debut. Smash Mouth’s third, eponymous release featured the smash hit “I’m a Believer”. Around that time, Smash Mouth crossed over into the film world by providing the musical heart of the soundtrack for “Shrek. Smash Mouth is indeed – at its core – about having fun!

Shihad

^^

When: Saturday 24th November
Where: Metro Theatre

Picture this… 1988, Bob Hawke is Prime Minister, Australia dumps $600 million bucks of tax payer cash on Expo 88, Home and Away hits our tellies for the first time, triple j launch the Hottest 100, Nintendo release the Game Boy, free University education is no longer an option, and over in Wellington NZ, the Southernmost capital city in the world, Jon Toogood and Tom Larkin are busily creating a heavy rock band…. A monstrous band that would end up becoming one of New Zealand’s most loved, respected and successful exports.…. KIA ORA SHIHAD! Fast forward to 2018… Jon, Tom, lead guitarist Phil Knight (who they found through a music shop notice board ad in 1989) and bass player Karl Kippenberger, who joined the band in 1993, (from being a fan) have released nine studio albums (five of which went to #1 in NZ). They survived a name change propelled by Jihad becoming a staple negative reference in the global vernacular thanks to 9/11 (Shihad became Pacifier, and returned to Shihad), personal triumphs and tragedies, travelled all over the world with endless tours, selling out headline shows and sharing stages at major local and international festivals, and touring with musical heroes like Motorhead, Metallica, Faith No More and AC/DC to name a few! In 2010 they were inducted into the New Zealand Music’s Hall Of Fame. And just like Neil Finn, Russell Crowe and every other successful person or idea to come out of NZ…. Australia quickly adopted them as our own, showering them with ARIA nominations, adoration and ownership of their global success. To celebrate 30 years, Shihad will be undertaking a national tour, and releasing their classic LP The General Electric, also celebrating twenty years since its release, on vinyl for the first time. The General Electric was the LP that re-established their position as sonic giants of the music industry, with hit singles ‘My Mind’s Sedate’, ‘The General Electric’, ‘Pacifier’.

$UICIDEBOY$

^^

When: Friday 11th January
Where: Enmore Theatre

Having toured Australia just last year, cousins Ruby da Cherry and $lick $loth, aka $UICIDEBOY$, are a dark blend of horrorcore glitch-trap beats, booming basslines and occultish, drugged-out rhymes, making waves around the world with their truly unique mix of synth-laden beats and misanthropic, dark verses. Growing up together, Ruby and $lick shared very different tastes in music; Ruby taking lessons from Minor Threat, Leftover Crack and The Misfits, while $lick (aka Suicide Christ) pursued the art of turntablism, while honing his skills as a songwriter. Worlds collided as the New Orleans rap duo joined their creative forces in 2014 to form the juggernaut that is $UICIDEBOY$.

Snarky Puppy

^^

When: Sunday 21st April
Where: Enmore Theatre

The New York based quasi-collective has gone from the best kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Snarky Puppy seamlessly fuses a deep knowledge and respect for musical tradition with sonic and conceptual innovation in a way that can reach the most critical or most carefree audience. This convergence of musicians from white and black America have performed regularly with artists like Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Kirk Franklin, Justin Timberlake and Marcus Miller among many others. Formed in Texas 12 years ago by exceptional young musicians, the band is a collective that is orchestrated by bassist Michael League, whose creative grass roots approach to a tougher than ever industry has developed a new model for independent artists. The last four years have brought dramatic changes for Snarky Puppy. After a decade of relentless touring and recording in all but complete obscurity, the Texas-bred/New York-based quasi-collective suddenly found itself held up by the press and public as one of the major figures in the jazz world. But as the category names for all three of the band’s Grammy® awards would indicate (Best R&B Performance in 2014, Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2016 and 2017), Snarky Puppy isn’t exactly a jazz band. It’s not a fusion band, and it’s definitely not a jam band. It’s probably best to take Nate Chinen of the New York Times’ advice, as stated in an online discussion about the group, to “take them for what they are, rather than judge them for what they’re not.” Snarky Puppy is a collective of sorts with as many as 25 members in regular rotation. They each maintain busy schedules as session musicians (with such artists as Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and D’Angelo), producers (for Kirk Franklin, David Crosby, and Salif Keïta), and solo artists (many of whom are on the band’s indie label, GroundUP Music). At its core, the band represents the convergence of both black and white American music culture with various accents from around the world. Japan, Argentina, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico all have representation in the group’s membership. But more than the cultural diversity of the individual players, the defining characteristic of Snarky Puppy’s music is the joy of performing together in the perpetual push to grow creatively.
