Australian indie-punks, The Hard Aches, have unveiled new Australian tour dates for June 2019, which follows previously announced Europe and UK dates throughout April and May.

Queensland indie four-piece, Major Leagues, will be joining The Hard Aches on their upcoming Australian tour, which includes nights at Adelaide’s Lion Arts Factory, Melbourne’s Howler and Darwin’s Railway Club, marking the band’s first visit to the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory.

The 10-date tour will kick off at The Zoo in Brisbane on 6 June, running through to the Darwin date on 28 June. Tickets and more info at

2018 was a monumental year for The Hard Aches, with the Adelaide two-piece unleashing their sophomore album ‘Mess’ to rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

‘Mess’, released via Anchorhead Records, saw Ben David (vocals, guitar) and Alex Upton (drums), team up with esteemed Melbourne producer Sam Johnson (Camp Cope, The Bennies) at his studio in Holes & Corners, before engaging the talents of Grammy-Award winning engineer, William Bowden, to give the newly-formed punk anthems their finial finesse.

As the band’s songwriter, Ben has previously described ‘Mess’ as ‘The best representation of us as a Band’ and ‘The album we’ve been working towards creating through years of touring and making music.”

His notion is one that’s shared among fans, who flocked to see The Hard Aches perform their new songs across two Australian headline tours throughout 2019.

“This is The Hard Aches at their very best.” – Kill Your Stereo


“The skilful portrayal of such brutally honest emotion is certainly why Mess will be on repeat around the country.” –
