The Vasco Era & Papa Vs Pretty Announce National Tour

On October 14, The Vasco Era will release a brand new, independent, self-titled album. Recorded live at Melbourne’s Sound Park Studios with producer Steven Schram, The Vasco Era is bursting with nearly freeform metal lashings of noise that whip around the bands blues.

To celebrate the new album, The Vasco Era and Sydney’s Papa vs Pretty are joining forces this October and November for a special double-headline tour. Both bands will play songs fresh off their new albums in venues right across Australia. With Papa vs Pretty enjoying critical praise for their debut album United in Isolation (released in May) and The Vasco Era preparing to release their highly anticipated self-titled album (out October 14), the time was right for both bands to jump in the tour van together. Audiences will see two of Australia’s most dynamic live bands under one roof ­– for the price of one.

It’s in the joyful energy borne from a reinvigorated band smashing it out live in the studio, and its in Sid’s throat-scraping, exorcising howl that proves The Vasco Era as a newly liberated entity – from their past, demons, label, and – somewhat – themselves.

“loud enough to make ears and throat strings bleed”
– Rolling Stone

“a scorcher… distorted blues-rock and hook-laden anthems.”
