Stick to Your Guns

^^

When: Tuesday 16th January
Where: Factory Theatre

With Special Guest: Being As An Ocean

California Love! Two of Cali’s best hardcore exports are coming to dominate Australian shores in January 2018! Southern California Hardcore crew Stick To Your Guns and their Californian Post-Hardcore buddies Being As An Ocean are combining for a bone-crushing tour. The tour backs up both bands’ appearances at the Sold-Out Unify Gathering in January 2018. Stick To Your Guns merge socially conscious and outspoken lyricism with hardcore energy and hammering metallic force in their live show – and fans can expect a blistering, no-holds-barred performance on this tour. Hysteria Mag praised the energy and all-or-nothing nature of a Stick To Your Guns show – “You know shit is going to pop off, and it does from the moment STYG start playing… It’s a thing of beauty to witness.” Their new album ‘True View' is out October 13 and they will be bringing the Noise with them in January. Being As An Ocean’s post-hardcore stylings and dedication to being up close and personal with their fans (frontman Joel Quartuccio spends a lot of their set-time amongst the crowd, eye-to-eye and on their level) will be on display on the tour. This tour will be the first time down under since the band self-released their new record ‘Waiting for Morning to Come’, so there’s more than a good chance there will be a lot of energy and anger coming with the band to expand on this tour – in the pit WITH the fans. On their last Australian tour, AAA Backstage observed that at a Being As An Ocean show, “…the mayhem never ceased as the crowd turned into a whirling dervish, spinning and two stepping their way through the evocative hardcore jams.” More than good reason to be there to witness.

Six60 and Nico & Vinz

^^

When: Friday 19th January
Where: Factory Theatre

SIX60 are teaming up with Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz for The New Waves World Tour - taking the two acts right across Europe and New Zealand before heading to Australia this January. The band has spent much of 2017 working on new music, recording in Auckland, London and LA alongside Printz Board, who also produced the band’s platinum second self titled album - an album that remains in the NZ top 40 charts after a staggering 128 weeks. The band has just touched down in New Zealand after their latest stint in the recording studio in LA, and promise that new music will definitely be included in the setlist for the tour, and frontman Matiu Walters says that the band can’t wait to get back on stage. “We met Nico & Vinz when we were recording in their studio in LA and discovered that we’ve got a lot in common in what we believe about music and the way it affects and connects people, and how our music is influenced by our roots and genres like R&B.” “The New Waves World Tour represents how music is like the tides that ebb and flow, eventually ending up on the other side of the world. Both bands have got new parts of the world to see, and fresh music to share with our fans." Nico & Vinz say “We saw some of the footage of Six60 tours from the past and it's exciting to think about playing in front of such a passionate incredible crowd.” This tour is one not to be missed!

Slowdive

^^

When: Wednesday 31st January
Where: Metro Theatre

Supported By: Kane Ikin

UK shoegaze pioneers Slowdive make their long awaited Australian debut in 2018. Nearly thirty years after forming and after a twenty-two year hiatus, Slowdive reunited in 2014 to play Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In January, they released the beguiling single ‘Star Roving’, followed by a self-titled fourth album in May, a return to form hailed by Stereogum as, “as stunning a comeback record as I can recall in recent times. It’s on par with the band’s best work”. Slowdive’s stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while enticing a legion of fresh ears. These eight new tracks, simultaneously expansive and the band’s most direct material to date, have eclipsed any ‘trip down memory lane’, and firmly establish Slowdive as a band at the top of their game. With major international festival appearances under their belt this year, and a vibrant, atmospheric set, Slowdive remain one of the most potent live bands on the planet. The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place.” – Pitchfork. “Slowdive washes entire canvases in buckets of sound, creating gradient color schemes… perfect sound, perfect lighting conditions, and hypnotic background imagery…” - Consequence of Sound. “Incredible comeback single “Star Roving” is the perfect example of this new Slowdive. The lush guitars are rugged yet beautifully layered and Halstead’s voice” - The Line Of Best Fit.
