Unpretentious, energetic and with just a hint of swagger, The City Shake Up will be bringing their loud, passionate and rough-around-the-edges punk/rock to the Brisbane show.
Far Away Stables have only just arrived on the scene but are already amassing an intense following and will be unleashing their chaotic live show in Sydney.
After winning Triple J Unearthed and a spot at Splendour this weekend, Kingswood’s thunderous rock anthems will be on show with Billy Talent for their sold out Melbourne show.
BILLY TALENT announced their arrival by crashing a Mac Truck full of complex riffs and fret board wizardry into the lounge room of 3 chord pop punk. Their debut was a phenomenon: “endlessly anthemic, bursting with hooks, impeccably played and thrillingly heavy where it counts” –Toronto Star.
Three albums full of big-rock structures and powerful chorus hooks have propelled BILLY TALENT into mainstream success and solidified their status as one of Canada’s greatest band; “What this was, in an age of irony, indie and nostalgia, was an authentic arena rock experience, jam-packed with huge hits ‘Rusted From The Rain’, ‘Surrender’, ‘Nothing To Lose’, ‘Try Honesty’…” – Chartattack
Having skipped Australia on their last album due to a crushing tour schedule, the band wanted to make sure that we are one of the very first places that they visit on their upcoming World tour. Needless to say, expect a big big show!
“Blistering with energy, Billy Talent capture the spirit, attitude and explosiveness that first launched rock’s rebel cause. The band captures a pressing sense of urgency devoid of anything trite or gimmicky.” – Contact Music.
