Skyway announce national tour

Pop punk is the name of the game, and for Gold Coast’s Skyway it’s a game that they play very, very well. With new album, Finders Keepers out now, the band are embarking on an 8 date trek around the country with their friends Milestones and Apart From This this December.

Since their inception in early 2008, Skyway have fast forged a impressive name for themselves with the release of 2 EPs, an impressive touring resume and a list of support slots that would make most starting out bands green with envy. Their debut full-length, Finders Keepers (out now through Takedown Records), has solidified their place at the top of the pop punk food chain. Team that up with the fact that they’ve just finished up touring with The Amity Affliction and Asking Alexandria as a part of the “Fuck The Reaper Tour”, and you know that Skyway are ready and set to impress.

Milestones formed in early 2010, and since then they have grown progressively from their demo to their EP Growing Up Is Getting Old, creating a formula of emo-inspired punk rock that is distinctively their own. 2011 has been slated as a period of growth for the band, with their debut full-length In Time, Clarity You’ll Find to be released November 18 through Takedown Records. The Brisbane five-piece have played with the likes of The Wonder Years, Man Overboard and Such Gold, and 2012 looks to be filled with even more touring.

Formed in the outer suburbs of Melbourne in 2009, Apart From This have established themselves as one of the real up and coming forces in the Australian pop punk scene. Before even releasing their debut EP, they had shared the stage with Fireworks, The Wonder Year and No Trigger. With the release of their second EP Another Day, Another Fight, the band will be hitting the road to show pop punk fans everywhere who their new favourite band should be.

Hitting major cities across the country throughout December, do not miss this trio of pop-punk excellence when it rolls into a town near you.
