TAKING SIDES COMEBACK SHOW 2017

takingsides-ig

Just when you were starting to think stage dives and singalongs were a thing of the past…

Dogfight Records are incredibly honoured to announce that after 11 years, Sydney’s own TAKING SIDES are reforming and bringing back their hard hitting, in your face hardcore punk to the stage, February 10th at the Red Rattler.

TAKING SIDES played their last show in 2005, when they called it a day after three solid years of touring and two albums, SMASH THE WINDOWS TO THE DEAD HEARTS and DRESS CODE, when family and career commitments became a larger priority. The guys hung up their instruments thinking their futures held dad life and being a regular punter at shows. Until now…

Now over ten years on and with the current state of the bands that are referring to themselves as “punk rock” and “hardcore” these days, TAKING SIDES couldn’t of picked a better time for a comeback!

Friday 10th of February, The Red Rattler Marrickville
TAKING SIDES, The return of..

Supports to be announced.

Tickets on sale 9am, Monday the 28thNovember through Oztix.

Angel Du$t – Australian Tour Local Suports

ad support flyer

ANGEL DU$T – 2016 AUSTRALIAN TOUR – LOCAL SUPPORTS

 

Hailing from the city of Baltimore, these guys don’t fuck around when it comes to making rock music. You like the Lemonheads and the Bad Brains at the same time? Of course you do. This is kind of like that, but less heroin involved. ‘Rock The Fuck On Forever’ isn’t just the name of their new LP, it’s a fucking command. ‘Rock The Fuck On Forever, is a short burst of an album that packs a ton of melodic power into its 13 short tracks. It’s a supercharged album, one that never lets up even when its harmonies are soaring.

 

After extensive touring across America and Europe with a Japan tour just announced the time has come for Australia to get its first taste of Angel Du$t when they hit our shores end of September.

Joining them are Sydney’s Primitive Blast, comprised of members from bands such as Relentless and Mood Swing you know this band would pack a punch before you have even heard them and they never cease to deliver. With a brand new 7” coming out Primitive Blast are a band to watch out for over the coming months.

Reactions hit the road with Melbourne’s Oceans Grove

OG

Audiences (and venues) beware, as those warped Melbournians in OCEAN GROVE and their white hot brand of odd world music will be invading Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this September and October, in celebration of their new single, “Lights On Kind Of Lover.” Joining OG across all five dates will be good friends, and Adelaide’s most exciting new hardcore racket, REACTIONS.
Having impressed every audience they’ve been thrust in front of over the past twelve months, it was OCEAN GROVE’S recent, head-turning performance on the mammoth Equinox tour – where they joined Northlane, In Hearts Wake and Hands Like Houses – that has truly marked their arrival at a national level, with The Music stating, “A genre unto themselves, the band seemed to exude everything that was great about the ‘90s. Boasting discordance at all of the right moments, nu-metal rap and the modern breakdown flair, they were difficult to ignore. The vast combinations of styles worked in their favour, with the crowd kept engaged in an electric, youthful kind of energy.”
Emerging from the depths of Melbourne in 2010, OCEAN GROVE has continuously strived to develop a distinguishable sound like no other, a feat. they have now fully realised with “Lights On Kind Of Lover.” The single, their first release under the UNFD banner, has already notched up 300,000 streams on Spotify, while rapidly closing in on 100,000 views on YouTube.
Now in possession of some serious, big-stage candour, the “Lights On Kind Of Lover” shows promise to be as unique an experience as the band’s recorded output, making these dates some of the ‘can’t miss’ outings of 2016!
REACTIONS may be an unfamiliar name to some, but for those more entrenched in the hardcore community, the five-piece is one of the more hard working and unique acts to have spawned from the city of churches this decade. Tours with Xibalba and Antagonist AD took the band cross country, while local supports with Code Orange, Comeback Kid and scene stalwarts, Sick Of It All, have allowed REACTIONS to develop a live show that can rival many of their more heavily fancied, international counterparts.
The spotlight now belongs to OCEAN GROVE. Miss these shows at your own peril.
