With special guests:
DEAFCULT & Lexicon
They’re the band you grew up with, whose songs are imprinted into the DNA of every music-lover who came of age in the 90’s and 00’s. A band of eternally-youthful fuzz-pop darlings who, however improbably, have continued to play together for over 25 years and somehow have not only gotten better, but have become even more loved. A band that combines loud with beautiful, intense with joyous, chaotic with precise and pulls it all together in a way that very few acts ever manage.
2017’s surprise ‘comeback’ album, ‘Pop Guilt’, was rapturously received by fans and hailed by critics as one of the band’s best; it made ripples around the world, the new songs reconnecting people with the band’s peerless back catalogue. Rolling Stone summed it up thusly: “25 years into their career, Screamfeeder are still killing it.. (they) pour a lifetime of indie-rock experience into this collection of blissed-out punk songs.”
They’ve toured Australia too many times to count, as well as the US, the UK, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, France, Germany, Switzerland and Spain, taking audiences on the ride that is uniquely Screamfeeder. Live, they’re a non-stop whirlwind of high-energy heavy riffs, caterwauling feedback and pulse-racing bass, Tim and Kellie entwining their vocals around the music, all anchored with the explosive power of Dean’s drumming. This band can give anyone in the world a run for their money – they’re raw, grungy, fiery, effortlessly skilful yet loose at the same time, an exuberant and joyful wave of music filling every room with pure radiant youth, and they’ll be doing it all over again as they hit Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Hunter Valley in 2018.
