REFUSED
Sick Of It All & High Tension

Australian Tour, January 2017

The time has cometheres no escape 

 

Legendary Swedish hardcore punks, Refused will return to Australia in January 2017 along with hardcore icons Sick Of It All (celebrating their 30th anniversary) and High Tension!

In 1998 a boundary exploding album was released that has since been elevated to all-time legendary status…’The Shape Of Punk To Come’. Their iconic status grew exponentially in the ensuing years, the band casting a giant shadow over the world of underground rock as they post-humously influenced a new generation of musical revolutionaries. 

Refused reformed 14 years later in 2012 to a slew of sold out dates across the globe (including Australia) and this led to the release of their first new album in 17 years titled Freedom in June 2015. Freedom explodes with opening track Elektra, as front man Dennis Lyxzen’s throat-shredding declaration that “nothing has changed” catapulted Refused into the 21st century. 

Its not a reunion anymore,” Lyxzen insists. “This is one of the most radical things weve ever done, both musically and lyrically.” “A thrilling, challenging, life-affirming rollercoaster of a record”. Kerrang

Adding to the volatility of this tour are New York hardcore titans, Sick Of It All. The band are celebrating 30 years together in 2016 and are as potent and focused than ever. With the Koller brothers leading the charge and their latest album 2014’s The Last Act of Defiance bringing exactly what their fans expect. Gang shout outs galore, teeth knocking street anthems, breakdown and break neck pace setting and a directive to their fans to stay hard and fight the power NYHC style!

Opening for these two legendary acts will be Melbourne noise makers, High Tension. Led by the formidable and volatile Karina Utomo, the Aria nominated band throw everything in the mix from Kyuss groove to Refused’s assault leaving audiences exhilarated and in awe of what they just witness.
A better start to the night, you will not find!
