Legendary Aussie rockers Grinspoon have announced their epic Chemical Hearts national tour, set to make its way around the country this October and November, supported by The Hard Aches, Gooch Palms and Bugs. The Chemical Hearts tour will be packed with hits and audience faves from the era when Grinspoon absolutely dominated the festival lineups of the day including Big Day Out, Homebake, Livid and Peaches &Cream. In celebration of the tour, the band will be releasing a Chemical Hearts vinyl record on the day the tour kicks off (October 11) with a tracklist that will contain some of the bands favourite singles and offer fans a nostalgic taste of what’s to come at the shows. If the SOLD OUT 2017 20th Anniversary Guide To Better Living tour is anything to go by, tickets will disappear fast.
Stonefest 2019 | Saturday 19 October | UC Refectory & UC Hub | 18+ Full Lineup: (in alphabetical order) British India | Ceres | Cry Club | Example (UK) | FRITZ | Genesis Owusu | Good Doogs | Japanese Wallpaper | Mallrat | Moaning Lisa | Ninajirachi | Pagan | RAAVE Tapes | Sampa The Great | Skegss | Sputnik Sweetheart | Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers | Thelma Plum After nearly a decade in hibernation, Stonefest returns to the University of Canberra. Set to take over UC Refectory and UC Hub this October with a mammoth lineup of international acts, Hottest 100 favourites and some of Australia’s hottest new talents, Stonefest is a nostalgia trip and a glimpse into the future all in one. Heading up the lineup are a duo of Australian acts. Skegss have shot to stardom with their buzzed-out, relatable surf rock that saw them claim #11 in the 2018 Hottest 100 with ‘Up In The Clouds’, whilst Mallrat is on a trajectory all her own, with an entirely sold out national tour that included four back-to-back shows at the Corner Hotel and three at The Triffid in Brisbane. There are also nods to Stonefests past, with British India returning to the festival they played more than a decade ago and Euro pop megastar Example dropping in from the UK. Canberra acts have been kicking some serious goals in recent times, and they’re well-represented with globetrotting rapper/performance artists Genesis Owusu and alternative rockers Moaning Lisa heading up a local contingent that also includes Sputnik Sweetheart and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers. ‘Clumsy Love’ singer Thelma Plum, Zambia-born rapper Sampa The Great, instant party RAAVE Tapes, past Unearthed High winner Japanese Wallpaper, and emo favourites Ceres prove that there’ll be something for everyone across Stonefest’s two stages. Emerging acts Cry Club, Good Doogs, Ninajirachi, Paganand FRITZ round out the lineup, offering new discoveries for the uninitiated.
Melbourne group, PRESS CLUB release their second full-length album, Wasted Energyand head off around the country in November. Press Club’s sonic calling cards are all present on Wasted Energy; the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the razor sharp guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, not to forget the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. Two singles have been taken from the self-produced Wasted Energy so far.‘Get Better’, and ‘Thinking About You’, in which Foster recounts her experience with a stalker. Never one to shy away from what is uncomfortable, the song embodies a freak’s tongue, cooing unbridled down the phone line; abrupt, uninvited, and out of the blue.Supported by Johnny Hunter and Slagatha Christie. ** This event is 18+ **
