Let’s not kid ourselves, January is shaping up to be a great month for live music in Australia, what with Unify this week, Refused’s and Alexisonfire’s first tours here in almost five years respectively, as well as Panic! At The Disco and Stick To Your Guns also making their way down to us. And that’s to name just a few tours.
As for the latter, Stick To Your Guns haven’t had a headline tour on Aussie shores in at least five years, and on their returning voyage they are bringing along one of hardcore’s most hyped about bands right now, Knocked Loose, as well as our very own Reactions and Relentless to bolster the home front. Over the past weekend, the local supports were all announced, with only the Melbourne and the Brisbane 18+ shows not getting any local acts. But that’s fine because some of the prime supports for this tour include Adelaide newcomers Sleep Talk, Brisbane’s Vitals, and Newcastle hardcore outfit, Staunch.
Tickets for the tour are still available via Destroy All Lines right here, and you can check out the full list of dates and supporting bands below.
