TOUR: Mumford & Sons Australian stopover

Mumford & Sons Miller 2

With a second album slated for release in September, Mumford & Sons have announced a set of 10 shows around Australia – which means we’ll be some of the first to hear a lot of their new material live! Sigh No More received largely positive reviews, with only a few outlets noticeably turning their noses up at it, and their previous live shows in Australia were lauded over by critics.

They’ll be supported by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (only for the first 7 shows, unfortunately) and American singer-songwriter Willy Mason (all dates).

Check out all of the details below, tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am!

Presented by triple j, Channel [V] & Street Press Australia.

TOUR: I Am Giant – Purple Heart Australian Tour

I Am Giant - Purple Heart Tour

I Am Giant are set to return to our shores for a late June/early July tour of most capital cities – it’s time to get excited! They’re touring in support of their latest single, “Purple Heart”, and if their show supporting Dead Letter Circus last year is anything to go by (it is), they’re a force to be reckoned with live. Energetic, explosive, and fun – if you’re into your prog-rock, you’re not going to want to miss this one.

Check out all of the details below.

UPDATE: Separate from the tour, they’ll also be passing through New Zealand for the Mt Ruapehu Mountain Mardi Gras on the Saturday 23rd of June! Details over here.

TOUR: Atmosphere and Evidence

Atmosphere and Evidence

Have I told you guys about Rhymesayers before? I might’ve mentioned them. Once or twice.

They’re a stellar hip-hop label who represent some amazing artists, and they’re bringing Atmosphere and Evidence to New Zealand and Australia this May. If you’re not busy slaving away at study or work, you should get along to a show. These guys have been around for years, and there aren’t many chances to check out artists of this calibre.

See all the details below, and a check out the video for Atmosphere’s “Just For Show”.

NEWS/TOUR: Groovin’ The Moo loses Chiddy Bang, gains Ball Park Music

Ball Park Music

Groovin’ The Moo – one of Australia’s most successful, friendly, and fun all-ages festivals – recently lost American hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang to promotional duties in the US. Ball Park Music, Australia’s slightly quirky and heart-warmingly sincere indie six-piece, have taken their place – and based on my own tastes, it’s a bit of a plus.

With Bendigo’s allocation of online tickets already sold out (and the tickets through local outlets being limited), you’d be advised to grab your tickets soon – no matter where you’re planning to attend.

As usual, it’s an incredibly solid line-up. I’m still freaking out at the thought of seeing Dallas Green singing across the University of Canberra Meadows. We’ll get to see:

360, Adrian Lux (SWE), Andrew W.K One-Man-Party Tour (USA), Ball Park Music, Beni, Big Scary, Bluejuice, City and Colour (CAN), Digitalism (GER), The Getaway Plan, Gold Fields, Hermitude, Hilltop Hoods, Kaiser Chiefs (UK), Kimbra, The Maccabees (UK), Matt Corby, Muscles, Mutemath (USA), Naysayer & Gilsun, Parkway Drive, Public Enemy (USA), Purple Sneakers DJs, San Cisco, Wavves (USA) with more local and triple j unearthed artists to be announced!

Groovin’ The Moo will be dropping by Bendigo (May 5), Townsville (May 6), Maitland (May 12), Canberra (May 13), and Bunbury (May 19). Jump over here for tickets and all of the finer details.

TOUR: Bomb The Music Industry! begin their Bring Your Own Band tour

Bomb The Music Industry!

Bomb The Music Industry! do some cool things. They endeavour to make every show all ages, even if it means paying venues extra to do so. They also try to keep all shows quite cheap, at around $10.

And you know what else is really cool? Sometimes they tell people to bring along instruments and help out.

Yup. They let people come along and play the band’s stuff with them, and that’s exactly what this Australian tour will be like. So grab whatever instrument it is that you play, and get along to one of these shows to play some music with Jeff Rosenstock (and potentially the rest of the band, although I think these might be solo shows) (oh, and I doubt this kinda thing will happen at Playground Weekender).

But yeah. Get out to a gig, okay? It’ll be fun. Promise.

You can also download their albums for free over here.

29.2.12 – Wollongong – Yours and Owls
1.3.12 – Brisbane – Between The Walls

TOUR: Dead Letter Circus announce the Sleepwalker Tour!

BRAND NEW/TOUR: Diafrix – “Running It”

Diafrix

You thought “Simple Man” was good? Daniel Merriweather sure did an excellent job on the guest vocals for that one, but wow – take a listen to this!

Hearing “Running It” for the first time is almost akin to the first time I heard Underworld’s “Scribble” – it’s a pretty special feeling. The production sounds so crisp and balanced, thanks to the work from Styalz Fuego. The composition lands on this beautiful divide between toe-tapping dance and a subtle melancholy. This has so much potential to be a hit for 2012 – and if it isn’t remixed the hell out of by the end of the year, I’ll eat my metaphorical hat. You’d do well to get on it now.

They’ve also announced the “Running to Shine Tour”, alongside Joelistics (also of renowned hip-hop group TZU!), and will be going all around the country in March! Check out the dates below.
