BEASTS OF BOURBON
Diafrix (not Die-af-rix don't let them hear you say that) have just been added onto the bill at the Queenscliff Music Festival. The Melbourne based and African born dancehall and hip hop duo who are famous for their high energy performances will be adding their swag to the already insane line-up.

Throughout August and September All The Young are touring nationally as the support act for the King Cannons. To make the most of their Australian trip from the UK they submitted their application to showcase at BIGSOUND Live in the Fortitude Valley. All The Young have been successfully chosen to play at the industry conference on September the 13th on the Channel [v] Stage at The Zoo. We took five with lead singer, Ryan Dooley.

Returning on a high from a run of sold out East Coast tour dates King Cannons already have another tour on the cards. "The Brightest Light" tour will be travelling all over the place from next month in promotion of the lead single off their debut record. It's a record which has been met with some decent acclaim, and the King Cannons live shows since its release have been very positively reviewed.
With a their new album, The Brightest Light coming out June 22, King Cannons are returning from Europe after the biggest tour of their career. For the June shows they'll be joined by Shihad’s drummer Tom Larkin, who produced the lion’s share of The Brightest Light.
A jam packed week with limited editions, tour editions, anniversary editions, new releases, EPs - everything you can think of. Some great new stuff from new artists locally and internationally; check out Little Buffalo and Cable 35 this week. The Madden twins announce an upcoming album project, a tour edition release from Kimbra, Motion City Soundtrack, Blur, Sampology and Hot Chip.
King Cannons are just about to head off to Europe, so they've gone and released a video for "Too Young" to soften the blow for all of us missing them already. Check it out!
