Saturday 8 December – Parramatta Park, Sydney
Sunday 9 December – Brisbane Showgrounds, Brisbane
After days of teasing, we have officially announced the first band appearing on the line up. We welcome Blackpool’s Boston Manor who will tour Australia for the first time.
Their second album, Welcome To The Neighbourhood, produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, Public Enemy), will be released on September 7 and is a soundtrack to disenfranchisement set in a fictionalised version of the band’s hometown. It inhabits an unapologetically bleak one, a world rife with poverty and drug addiction, boarded up shops and a population unable to escape a predicament they didn’t even know they were in.
New single, Bad Machine has been released with an accompanying video directed and edited by the band’s very own Henry Cox and Tom Hancox in the role of DOP. It’s a very “film noir” look at the their hometown of Blackpool which you can view below.
That’s not all, the entire Festival lineup will officially be announced on Thursday 23 August at 11am AEST time, so mark the date in your diary as you won’t want to miss out on what we have installed for you.
