POWER TRIP AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2018

Power Trip executes music with raw energy. They’ve trimmed the fat on every reference they pull from – whether that’s Hardcore, Metal or Punk – to make music that actually cuts in 2018. Hailing from Dallas, the band have toured the world relentlessly for years. Their musical proficiency, perfect song structure, rich tones, fierce riffs, delivery and collective attitude has seeded them as one of today’s most prolific acts in any astute or heavy genre. Power Trip boldly surprise their broad fan base by performing alongside less obvious artists – closing the gap that in 2018’s social climate desperately needs to be filled. One month you can catch them playing with Title Fight, Merchandise or Big Freedia, the next you can catch them on a long tour with Napalm Death or Anthrax. They’re a powerful storm of aggression, gaining more and more momentum with true, honest spirit.

Nightmare Logic has taken Power Trip’s classic Exodus-meets-Cro-Mags sound to new places. With hooks and tightness rivaling greats like Pantera or Pentagram and production by the esteemed Arthur Rizk, Nightmare Logic punishes fans not only sonically but with pure songwriting skill. The sophomore release and second on Southern Lord Records, raises the bar and pushes Power Trip to new extremes. Since 2013’s Manifest Decimation, the band admits they’ve not only gotten better at their instruments, but have also reinvented their songwriting process into a more nuanced and clever system. The shift shows on this record and does so without losing any of the aggression so essential to the band.

Touring the world on Nightmare Logic, Power Trip will play to scenes much further outside the bubble of contemporary underground punk music than any other current band, all while pushing the envelope of the modern punk ethos. This September the band makes their maiden voyage to Australia, tickets on sale May 9.

PARKWAY DRIVE “REVERENCE” OUT NOW

Reverence, the sixth studio album from Parkway Drive, is available in stores and on streaming services now. Reverence is the most sonically adventurous and emotionally intense effort yet from the Byron Bay-based five-piece.

Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, Reverence arrives as the follow-up to 2015’s IRE—Parkway Drive’s most hugely successful album to date and a major force in boosting their ever-growing worldwide following. In addition to broadening the band’s sonic palette, Reverence offers up some of Parkway Drive’s most devastating songs yet.

BETTER HALF “MAYBE I WAS WRONG” EP OUT MAY 11

Melbourne alt-rock quintet Better Half have announced their highly anticipated debut EP ‘Maybe I Was Wrong’ to be released May 11 via Resist Records. To coincide with the announcement, the band have given listeners the first taste of the release with a music video for ‘Rest Your Head

Forming in 2015 as a side project of Thornhill guitarist, Matt Van Duppen (guitar) and Belle Haven guitarist, Chris Vernon (vocals), Better Half have been slowly making a name for themselves in the Melbourne alternative rock/emo scene off the back of their first two singles, ‘Reasons To Leave’ and ‘Mourn’. 

After their full lineup was completed, the band went on to support the likes of Citizen, Turnover, Touché Amore, Being As An Ocean and more during 2015-2017. Better Half began writing and recording their long awaited debut 7″ EP ‘Maybe I Was Wrong’ through most of 2017 which is finally set to be released via Resist Records on May 11. The EP was entirely self-produced by Van Duppen and Vernon, with Chris also engineering, mixing and mastering the release. 

Pre Order “Maybe I Was Wrong”.

PARKWAY DRIVE “REVERENCE” OUT MAY 4.

Reverence arrives as the follow-up to 2015’s Ire—Parkway Drive’s most successful album to date and a major force in boosting their ever-growing worldwide following. But while Ire brought Parkway Drive’s uncompromising artistry to bold new levels, Reverence pushes their creative ambition even further.
“Reverence represents the most honest and personal record we have ever created,” says Parkway Drive frontman Winston McCall. “It has been born though pain, sacrifice, and conviction, with the ultimate goal of expanding not only what Parkway Drive stand for musically, but who we are as people. Thank you for listening.”

Today marks the premiere of “The Void,” one of the many heart-shredding anthems featured on Reverence. Directed by Allan Hardy, the video fully channels the furious energy of “The Void,” a track built on thrashing rhythms, ferocious vocal work, and deeply infectious melodies.

Produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou and recorded at All Buttons In Recording Studio in Ottawa, Reverence both expands the band’s sonic palette and offers up their most devastating songs yet.

Pre order “Reverence” now.

Pre order “Reverence” on iTunes.

Listen to “The Void” on Spotify or watch on YouTube.

PARKWAY DRIVE PREMIERE “WISHING WELLS”

Today Byron Bay’s Parkway Drive share their new single ‘Wishing Wells’ and its accompanying video with the world. Opening with ominous vocals and haunting acoustic guitar, ‘Wishing Wells’ soon erupts into a furious and full-throttle metal assault. Captured in one shot, its starkly filmed video marks a deep departure from Parkway Drive’s usual high-production aesthetic. The video features front man Winston McCall giving a powerful close-up performance of ‘Wishing Wells’ with fierce intensity. 

“Wishing Wells” is the compression of grief into song,” says McCall. “It’s attempting to place blame when there is none, seeking answers where there is only emptiness, and ultimately trying to find some kind of reason and meaning to justify the ultimate loss we will all be faced with in life. This is how this chapter begins and will end.”

GOOD RIDDANCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR APRIL 2018

Good Riddance is a hardcore punk band from Santa Cruz, California which was formed in the early 1990s. The band grew out of California’s vibrant surfing and skateboarding culture and was influenced by such bands as Black Flag, The Adolescents, TSOL and Bad Religion as well as East Coast bands like Sick Of It All and the Cro Mags.

With the release of their debut album “For God And Country” in 1995 on Fat Wreck, over the next decade Good Riddance went on to release seven full length albums and an EP for Fat while crisscrossing the globe dozens of times on tour.

In May 2007 Good Riddance played their final show, fittingly in their hometown of Santa Cruz. The members then went their separate ways to raise families and pursue careers. In 2012 the members of Good Riddance decided to get together and play a few shows again. The reason was simple: they missed the songs.

Good Riddance will be returning to Australia for a national tour this April, with their first show being in Brisbane on April 20 with the tour finishing in Melbourne on April 27.

Tickets on sale Wednesday February 14.
