Billy Talent announced their arrival by crashing a Mac Truck full of complex riffs and fret board wizardry into the lounge room of 3 chord pop punk. Their debut was a phenomenon: “endlessly anthemic, bursting with hooks, impeccably played and thrillingly heavy where it counts” –Toronto Star.
Three albums full of big-rock structures and powerful chorus hooks have propelled Billy Talent into mainstream success and solidified their status as one of Canada’s greatest band; “What this was, in an age of irony, indie and nostalgia, was an authentic arena rock experience, jam-packed with huge hits ‘Rusted From The Rain’, ‘Surrender’, ‘Nothing To Lose’, ‘Try Honesty’…” – Chartattack
Having skipped Australia on their last album due to a crushing tour schedule, the band wanted to make sure that we are one of the very first places that they visit on their upcoming World tour. Needless to say, expect a big big show!
“Blistering with energy, Billy Talent capture the spirit, attitude and explosiveness that first launched rock’s rebel cause. The band captures a pressing sense of urgency devoid of anything trite or gimmicky.” – Contact Music.
