Klaxons will be performing just two shows to promote their upcoming album, Surfing the Void (due out August 20). See dates below.

The weeks of waiting are over, and Splendour in the Grass sideshows kick off this week.

If you’re hanging out for Birds of Tokyo/Silversun Pickups tickets, don’t forget they go on sale Friday 30th July. While you’re in the mood to spend money, Birds of Tokyo’s new self-titled album is out right now.

Locals For Our Hero have been added to the ‘Streets of Gold’ Tour with 3OH!3 and Tonight Alive.

The Getaway Plan have reformed, but for one night only. They will be playing for the not-for-profit event, REVIVAL – This Is Not The End Of Your Story, which aims to raise awareness of depression and mental health issues in young people. They will perform an underage show and an 18+ show at Billboard, Melbourne, with support from Stealing O’Neal, Built On Secrets, Secrets In Scale and Cheerleader. Dates are below.

Parades is looking for a full time female vocalist/keys player. If you live in Sydney and think you might be interested, send them an email at paradesband@hotmail.com
