GBH with special guests The Rumjacks – Australian Tour Announced!


After years of speculation, groundbreaking English hardcore punk band GBH will tour Australia and New Zealand on the back of their eleventh studio album, Perfume and Piss (Hellcat Records) in October 2010

There isn’t a self-respecting gutter punk, hardcore kid or sub cultural miscreant alive who hasn’t see the GBH logo emblazoned on the back of a leather jacket, a denim vest, or a torn-up t-shirt. And now Australia and New Zealand will be slapped upside the head with a timely reminder as to exactly why GBH have been the heavyweight band of the UK punk scene for over 30 years.

Fans will look forward to a fist-pumping, palace-gates-storming live show by a band who re-defined the ‘UK82’ punk sound with tracks like “Sick Boy”, “City Baby Attacked by Rats” and “Time Bomb” (to name a few).

Their eleventh studio album (via Hellcat Records) carries the torch forward and introduces a new generation of fans to the band’s trademark fury that is alternately nihilistic, optimistic, pessimistic, anarchist, violent, humorous and deadly serious all at once.
