The supports for Refused‘s upcoming Australian tour have been announced, with the likes of Blkout, Nuclear Summer, Endless Heights, Outright and Hightime set to share the stage with the band.
Blkout take influence from the traditional New York Hardcore sound and have completed countless runs of Australia, as well as a full European tour. On their new album, ‘Point Of No Return’, Blkout lay down by panning towards the unorthodox in their journey to widen the scope of Australian hardcore. Perth’s favourite hardcore sons will be hitting the stage with Refused.
Nuclear Summer embodies the light and dark, dances between insane technicality and punk rock simplicity, while simultaneously channeling pure joy with unbridled rage. They will be taking their brand of ‘Sunshine Metal’ to the Brisbane show.
Endless Heights are about taking chances and pushing to achieve what you desire in life. Their motto, “Dream Strong”, permeates every element of the band, and it is this principle that will see them take their personalised brand of melodic hardcore to the Sydney show.
Outright are backed by big riffs, hard hits and unstoppable energy. Their distinct passion, nestled within a sea of heavy chords and a progressive social conscience will be in full flight at both Melbourne shows.
Hightime have managed to create a punk rock sound that defies many a genre; yet always carries the raw passion of its hardcore roots. They will be bringing their infectious and energetic live show to Adelaide.
Refused fit perfectly into the category as one of those legendary bands however on January 9, 2012 they announced to the world that they were indeed… NOT FUCKING DEAD! Refused are as vital as ever and will be touring this November and as the band succinctly put it…”We don’t know about you, but for us, in 2012, boredom is not on the table. See you in the pit.”
