Hold onto your hats, because Michigan band Hot Mulligan are finally gearing up to rock Australian stages for the first time in March 2024, and they’re bringing their buddies Free Throw along for the ride. This is the show you don’t want to miss, so get pumped and get your tickets!
Hailing from Lansing, Michigan, these college friends have risen from humble beginnings to become a buzzworthy band, propelled by their cherished albums on No Sleep Records: 2018’s Pilot and 2020’s you’ll be fine. With an impressive 140 million Spotify streams, a sold-out nationwide headlining tour, support gigs alongside notable acts like The Wonder Years and New Found Glory, as well as features in esteemed publications like Alternative Press and Rock Sound, the release of their third album via Wax Bodega, Why Would I Watch, solidifies their status as a profoundly moving and versatile underground force.
Produced by their longstanding collaborator Brett Romney, Why Would I Watch showcases Hot Mulligan at their pinnacle — boasting their loudest, catchiest, and most emotionally resonant offerings: think twinkling Midwestern emo guitars, intricate synthy rhythms, and the raw power of frontman Sanville’s vocals, all harmonising into an electrifying homage to the energy of early 2000s Long Island.
Joining the spectacle, Free Throw brings their extensive discography to the table, with their fourth and latest album, Piecing It Together, delving into a realm where the band confronts profound truths. After a decade of relentless dedication, including numerous global performances and three prior albums, Free Throw’s new perspective on life focuses on the present moment and the pursuit of balance over the constant craving for ‘enough.’ The album embarks on a journey of self-acceptance, inviting everyone to embrace personal fulfillment alongside the band.
The tour will kick off in Perth on March 1st, followed by Adelaide, Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney and Newcastle, before ending in Brisbane on March 9th.
