Hellions Australian Tour


Destroy All Lines, UNFD & H-Boyz Present:


Quality Of Life Australian Tour

Hellions have announced their new album Opera Oblivia will be released on July 29 via UNFD, and they will be taking it on the road at the same time of their Australian headline tour ‘The Quality Of Life’. The band have also released a video for their first single “Quality Of Life” – an empowering and breakneck trip through thrilling riffery and soaring choruses that has already become an anthem on triple j.

A collection of wonderful moments that tend to drift away from our memory: at its best, this is what life is. And for Hellions, their third album Opera Oblivia is a glorious celebration and forensic examination of everything that makes being alive worthwhile – from high to low, they say, the nearest thing any of us have to a shortcut to happiness is the necessity of being true to oneself.

“We would love for Opera Oblivia to be an escape for its listeners,” suggests guitarist Matthew Gravolin,“but more than that, we want it to commiserate with people through our common unpleasantries and overwhelming hardships, and also celebrate alongside our inevitable victory. We want people to allow it to befriend them and remain with them long after its sounds fade out.”

Structured like a theatrical presentation, Opera Oblivia is the Sydney quintet’s defining statement to date, a brave masterpiece that lays bare the colossal scope of both their ambition and talent. Frontman Dre Faivre, guitarists Gravolin and Josh Campiao, bassist Chris Moretti and drummer Anthony Caruso have, alongside producer Shane Edwards and collaborations from Northlane riffmaster general Jonathon Deiley, Ocean Grove’s Sam Bassal and Duane Hazell of Heroes For Hire, stretched themselves like never before, taking the flashes of glory that peppered Die Young (2014) and Indian Summer (2015) and expanding them into a fully-formed project that vibrates with energy and joy.

The album runs riot with its subject matter, from the existential disillusionment of the thrilling ”Thresher” to the self-determination of “Quality Of Life" and the shocking and sad “He Without Sin”. It’s a collection of songs as concerned with the state of the world outside our heads as the one within, and the musical palette reflects this accordingly.

These songs are bangers, basically, even if they don’t always make sense. Just like life.

Opera Oblivia is available now for preorder via 24Hundred and iTunes.
