News Bits & Pieces

TRIAL KENNEDY ANNOUNCE A ‘NEW MANIC ART’ ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Melbourne band Trial Kennedy have been idle for a number of years now, but after a recent bout of teasing via social media, they have announced a one-off ‘New Manic Art‘ ten year anniversary show in Melbourne at Max Watt’s on Saturday 26th May.

Yes. We did break up.
For a number of reasons it was the best thing for us to do at that time but as we are all still great friends we catch up all the time.
A few chats evolved and this is where we are.
New Manic Art would have been out for 10 years on May 31. 2018.
So we as the members of Trial Kennedy would really like to honour and reflect on that time of our life with one show to play the album in full for old times sake.
That was a really huge part of our lives and we’re all feeling like we’d regret if we didn’t try and put this show together.
We actually launched New Manic Art from this very venue close to 10 years ago so we’re really looking forward to playing it again.
We know that May is still ages away but that is why we’re announcing now so that anyone travelling has time to organise a trip. We’d hate for our friends to miss out.

Tickets go on sale 9am tomorrow via Oztix [Here].

ARCHITECTS MAKE GOOD ON PROMISE TO ADELAIDE
Architects have announced an Adelaide headline show at The Gov on January 10th while in the country for the sold out UNIFY festival.

The band was here last supporting Bring Me The Horizon when the tour was cancelled with a few shows remaining due to BMTH vocalist Oli Sykes suffering laryngitis. Architects attempted to make it up to Adelaide fans at the time, however were unable to arrange something at late notice, promising to return as soon as possible.

Tickets go on sale 9am local time tomorrow.

GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR ANNOUNCE MELBOURNE SHOW
Following their gripping and immersive 2016 performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Godspeed You! Black Emperor returns this January showcasing their new album ‘Luciferian Towers‘ plus songs from their critically acclaimed back catalogue.

The Montreal post-rockers have a reputation for delivering the most mesmerising shows, infusing orchestral dynamics with stunning ‘cinema-esque’ film loops and epic rock power, where composition and emotion fuse into a sound like no other.

The Elisabeth Murdoch Hall is located inside Melbourne Recital Centre, and the night to head along is on January 22nd.

Tickets will be on sale 9am this Friday from [Here].

You can pick up the latest album on CD [Here] and Vinyl [Here].

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY RELEASE DELUXE EDITION OF LATEST ALBUM
Fit For An Autopsy have just released a deluxe edition of their most recent LP, ‘The Great Collapse‘ called ‘The Rain City Deluxe Version‘. It includes nine bonus live tracks.

As kids we always loved the bootleg live recordings and bonus live tracks on metal records. It seems like bands aren’t releasing live material as much today in the metal world. Everyone has a slick and modern production, so we thought it’d be challenging and fun to showcase a more raw live performance on record. Rain City did a killer job capturing the band, and Will Putney’s live mix did it justice. Hope you enjoy it!

You can grab it on iTunes [Here].

Fit For An Autopsy released ‘The Great Collapse‘ earlier this year via Entertainment One / Good Fight Music in North America and SPV overseas. Initial sales of the album landed the band on a variety of Billboard charts, some of which the first time in the band’s career.

THE RAMONAS – ‘POSER’ VIDEO CLIP
The Ramonas recently released their debut album of original material titled ‘First World Problems‘, and now they have shared a video clip for the single ‘Poser‘.

As the name would suggest, the band are more known for their Ramones tribute act, but also boast a collection of original material.

You can stream the album, and watch the new video clip below. Pick up the album on iTunes [Here].
