Hollow Everdaze will be hitting locations in Victoria and New South Wales for their upcoming "Last Laugh" tour. The tour is in support of their new single of the same name. Marking their first release of 2015, the track clocks in at over 7 minutes and could be described as a symphony rather than a song. 2015 is sure to be a massive year for Hollow Everdaze, with scores of releases already in the pipeline.

British pop star Charli XCX will perform headline dates in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney while in the country for her national Groovin' The Moo festival appearances.
Brisbane three piece Rolls Bayce are hitting the road at last. Even with the golden seal of approval from NME and Rolling Stone, it is still a phenomenal feat for the band to have been booked for the UK's The Great Escape Festival in May before ever embarking on a headline tour of Australia, but Rolls Bayce would not be so inconsiderate as to jet off to the northern hemisphere without some Aussie loving, so they will be headlining shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Wollongong across February, March and April. The dates are here:
Andrew Swift has announced the release of a new single out this week, along with a smattering of shows in Melbourne and Adelaide.

No stranger to live performance Swift has performed at the House of Blues in San Diego, Anaheim and Hollywood. Don't miss your chance to see him this month and in March.

After reuniting in 2014 for their first shows since breaking up 15 years ago, the band celebrated the reissue of their 1999 seminal release American Football, we're stoked to see that the experience was obviously enjoyable enough for the band to bring their highly anticipated live show out to this side of the globe.

After having a whirlwind year of success in 2014, topped off by “Talk Is Cheap” peaking as number one song in Triple J’s Hottest 100, there’s no surprise Chet Faker’s national tour is almost sold out.

A triple headliner comprising of Of Mice & Men, Atreyu and The Devil Wears Prada will be hitting venues in Sydney and Melbourne soon, with all three bands out in Australia for Soundwave.
