In today’s current climate, plagued by safe, tedious easy listening music, Guitar Wolf are just as important if not more so than they were when they formed in Harajuku, Japan in 1987.

To celebrate 30 years of their fierce in-your-face brand of jet rock ‘n roll, Guitar Wolf are back for their sixth Australian tour, primed to stun audiences with their unrelenting, uncompromising, unstoppable and unforgettable live shows across the country.

Perth gets first show tonight, followed by Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane.

Guitar Wolf had been destroying stages across Japan for 6 years with their energetic live performances before their first tour of the US in 1993. They had released three albums before being signed to Matador Records when they impressed a record executive at an in-store performance in New York.

The band has released 11 studio albums to date and a swath of live albums, singles and EP’s. They’ve toured with the likes of Jon Spencer’s Blues Explosion, The Cramps, Joan Jett and The 5,6,7,8’s, appeared in the 1997 film ‘Sore Losers‘ and zombie cult classic ‘Wild Zero‘ (2000)

Guitar Wolf are guaranteed to put on a live show you will never forget. Don’t miss them on their Australian tour this December which includes appearances on the Nevermind the Warp’d Tour Festival’s in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Tickets are available if you want to head along. Hit up Moshtix for all shows except Perth which is through Oztix.
