The Living End confirm three exclusive shows for Canberra, Wollongong and Sydney!

The Living End would have to be one of the country's hardest touring bands, right? I can't count how many times I've seen them perform or have at least been at an event they've been at, over the years. Today, the trio announced that they'll be on the road in October and November for three exclusive shows only because, why? Well, they want to, that's why. Fair enough, too.

Festival Review: Soundwave - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (22.02.14)

How quickly another Soundwave comes around. It doesn't seem like a month has passed since Metallica, The Offspring and Blink-182 were topping the bill in 2013, but here we are again with a new crop of bands, another fantastic line-up, and a new set of timetable clashes to ponder. First world problems aside, this year's timetable looks healthy and enticing across the board, and with the standard cancellations and what festival promoter AJ Maddah referred to as 'pissing contests' between bands in the past and a weather report mostly free of rain, it's game on at Fortitude Valley's RNA Showgrounds.

the AU interview: Ash Grunwald (Australia)

Aussie bluesmith Ash Grunwald first won the hearts of fans playing old blues standards, taking to the stage accompanied only by his acoustic guitar and a stomp box. Over the past 11 years, he’s shown his versatility by meshing his sound with hip hop, electronic and dubstep – all the while retaining at his musical core the delta blues he so loves. Now Grunwald is again reinventing himself, teaming up with Scott Owen and Andy Strachan from The Living End. He talks to Miranda Holker about their upcoming shows, a new single, and the looming environmental disaster that has finally inspired him to talk politics.

Live Review: Stone Music Festival: Day One - ANZ Stadium (20.04.13)

The first day of Stone Music Festival was such a mixed bag, that's it hard to even now where to start the review. It didn't feel like it all happened in one day, and it never flowed like a music festival. There was only one main stage that was often left bare for 30-50 minutes while the next band set up, and the independent music stage was in the middle of nowhere and left with no crowd at all. But alas, this is about the music, so let's begin...
