You Me At Six and Tonight Alive support acts announced!

Two already epic bands You Me At Six and Tonight Alive join forces for a pop-punk gig like no other. They have just announced the support act bands for each show and let us tell you – they aren’t to disappoint. Here they are:

Call the Shots - A five piece pop punk band based in Brisbane, Australia. The band is renowned for the amount of high energy they display on the set and really know how to rile up a crow. Right from the beginning this band found success touring the country, supporting the likes of; The Wonder Years, The Story So Far, The Getaway Plan and Short Stack. Catch these guys opening the tour in Brisbane.

With Confidence -A band only formed in mid 2012, these guys met in high school and already released their debut EP “Youth” shortly after the bands formation. Just this year these guys released their new single which saw them touring for the first time as a headline act with sold out shows. See them open up the show in Sydney.

Masketta Fall- A four piece pop/rock band from Melbourne. These guys are known for their energetic stage show and excellent live performance. The band has performed over ten national tours and played at numerous festivals over the past two years alone. See their high-energy performance at the Melbourne 18+ shows only.

Day Break- A young energetic pop-punk band from Adelaide who only came together in early 2013. Fresh from selling out three national tours already this year, the band continues to perform their own brand of pop-punk rock with catchy melodies and powerful chorus. See them live at the Adelaide show!

Tickets still on sale now, but have sold out in some venues so be sure to snag some before they sell!

'Say Anything' Australian tour supports announced!

With Say Anything heading back to Australian shores this October (their first headline tour in over 2 years), they are proud to announce that Chris Conley from Saves The Day will be playing guitar and singing for Say Anything.

Melbourne band Ceres will be joining as the direct supporting band. Ceres have built up quite the original sound - beautifully constructed pop with an eerie edge. Although the band is still new, we can't help but think that there's something quite nostalgic about the sound.

A host of other locals have also been added in each city to support and round out the bill.Check out the list below to see what band will be supporting in your city!

American Authors make Melbourne & Sydney show all ages

Due to overwhelming demand from the band's younger fan base and thanks to recent changes in liquor licensing regulation, American Authors' are now happy to confirm that the upcoming Melbourne and Sydney shows will now be all age events.

The Victorian liquor licensing act has now changed with much more lenient protocols in regards to promoting and running all age events - this means that the younger members of Australia's thriving live music scene have more opportunity then ever to see their favourite acts.

The tour which is in celebration of their debut album Oh, What A Life, will be the band’s first headline tour of Australia and New Zealand following a short appearance to the land of Oz earlier this year. The album features current single ‘Believer’ as well as much loved hit ‘Best Day Of My Life’ which has brought the band much attention and success.
