Following on from last week’s announcement of their debut album, and the release of their latest single ‘It Will Always Be My Fault’ (which KillYourStereo called a “dark, self-loathing sonic attack”), Sydney’s Justice For The Damned have announced they’ll be hitting the road around Australia this coming September, and they’re bringing some heavy hitting friends along for the ride.
The ‘Dragged Through The Dirt’ tour will be Justice For The Damned’s first Australian headlining tour, taking the band down the east coast playing a range of AA and 18+ shows, joined by Hindsight, Staunch, and Honest Crooks. Their debut album will be available on vinyl, cd, and digital August 11th, with pre-orders available HERE. Tickets for the shows are on sale now at www.greyscalerecords.oztix.com.au
“Justice has always been a band that tries to go against the grain, although sometimes it’s very hard to convey our appreciation for other genres; hopefully our first headline tour can.” Expresses Justice For The Damned vocalist Bobak Rafiee “We are equally excited and nervous for venture out with not only our friends but some of the best bands ever to come out of Australia.”
Since releasing their 2016 debut EP ‘Disposable Paradise’, explosive emo outfit Hindsight have been building a reputation for their chaotic live shows. Since laying waste to crowds at Invasion Fest in 2016, the Adelaide band has been busy taking their performance across the country, most recently with Perth’s Saviour, and are ready to do it all over again. Formed in Rural NSW, Staunch have made a name for themselves as a band that knows how to create music that hits hard. Since their inception, audiences have seen the band go from strength to strength, and that their much anticipated release Impulse To Destroy is here, the future is looking bright for Staunch. Rounding out the tour is the genre bending Honest Crooks, writing death metal riffs into beatdown mosh rhythms has ensured every show they’ve played is one to experience.
Justice For The Damned will also be joining Ocean Grove on their Rhapsody Tapes tour this August before taking flight for their first international tour, landing in Europe to support Thy Art Is Murder on a huge run of European shows throughout October.
