Balance And Composure tour Australia in August

Pennsylvania five piece Balance And Composure are touring Australian in August, with support from Brisbane hardcore act Fires Of Waco.

In their relatively short time together Balance And Composure have deservingly gone from strength to strength, building a solid reputation from their heavy touring schedule and DIY principles.

After self-releasing their debut EP I Just Want To Be Pure in 2008, Balance And Composure took the next step, signing to No Sleep Records for their Only Boundaries EP and a split with Tiger Jaw. Their latest effort, full length debut Separation is available now through No Sleep Records with Shock taking care of its release locally. Beyond the studio, the first half of 2011 has also seen the guys clock up some serious miles playing in most corners of the States, with no sign of reprieve in sight.

Fresh from the road with Make Do And Mend, Balance And Composure impressed with standout live shows at SXSW. As well as being selected for the Thrasher Skateboard Magazine party, Balance And Composure graced the stage as one of the Alternative Press ‘100 Bands You Need To Know’. Post-Austin, it was straight back onto the road for a month of back-to-back shows alongside California’s dredg.

Now comes the good news that the Pennsylvanian five piece have set their sights on bringing their own brand of 90s influenced underground alt rock to Australia this August. In addition to a run of dates that includes Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide, Balance And Composure will also be playing a string of fully stripped back, acoustic sets at some of Australia’s most loved independent record stores.

Joining them on the road will be Brisbane sons Fires Of Waco, who released their debut LP Old Ghosts Never Sleep earlier this year on Poison City Records. Fires Of Waco already graced stages nationally in March, supporting US hardcore juggernauts Defeater and Perth’s Miles Away. If you are a Brisbane local and want to catch them before the tour, they are playing The Orient Hotel on Saturday, June 18, with support from Army Of Champions and Waiting Room.

Local supports for the Balance And Composure tour will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets go on sale 9am, Friday June 24.
