Australian Music Round-UpNEWS

Jen Buxton and Lincoln Le Fevre will be issuing a split on 7” and digital September 12 through Poison City Records. The release was recorded and produced by Le Fevre at his Hobart studio and contains two new contributions from both artists to tide fans over until their respective new albums due next year.

Joel Birch of The Amity Affliction this week called out Memphis May Fire frontman Matty Mullins on stage over an altercation on Warped Tour. In footage, Birch also referenced an apparent racist altercation with current fill-in drummer Chad Hasty of Glass Cloud, though it’s not clear if the incidents are directly related. Later in the week it was revealed Birch had been admitted to hospital and missed several Warped dates due to illness. Vocals were handled by a number of fill-ins including ArchitectsSam Carter and Letlive’s Jason Butler.

Watch Hoodlum Shouts’ new video for Guns Germs Steel here. The song comes from last year’s highly acclaimed debut album Young Man Old Man, which you can listen to in its entirety here.

Brisbane alt-rock veterans Regurgitator will release their eighth album Dirty Pop Fantasy September 11. The band have also announced a run of dates throughout September and October in support (details below).

With frontman Peter Garrett recently retiring from politics, speculation has been rife regarding the legendary Midnight Oil’s return to the stage. However, according to longtime manager Gary Morris, the band are unlikely to reform any time soon despite offers of up to US$200,000 from American festivals.

The upcoming split between Postblue and Flowermouth will be released on digital and a limited run of 100 cassettes. Pre-orders are available here from Hindsight Records.

As mentioned in last week’s comments, iconic Melbourne venue the Palace Theatre is set to be demolished and replaced with a 5-star hotel, according to a proposal by current owner Jinshan Investments. Approval would no doubt spell the end for the venue, a building some say should be protected as a heritage area.

Take a look at the new video from The Trouble With Templeton for You Are New here. The song comes from the band’s debut album Rookie, out August 2.

Stream Trainwreck’s debut album Fresh Air / Dead Lungs here. The album will see a release next week via Broken Hive Records.

The Smith Street Band have announced two launch shows for their upcoming EP Don’t Fuck With Our Dreams. Both shows will take place at Melbourne’s Old Bar, August 9 with The Bennies, Foxtrot and World Cup and August 10 with The Bennies, El Alamein, Stockades, Apart From This and Lee Hartney Sex Drive. Tickets are on sale here from July 22.

Monolith Records have announced plans for the inaugural Black Hole festival. The 18+ event will take place September 14 at Brisbane’s Crowbar and features Japan’s Palm, A Secret Death, Encircling Sea, Shackles, The Schoenberg Automaton, Lo!, Defamer, The Fevered, Hope Drone, Ache, Ritual Harm and The River with solo sets from Of Hearth And Home and Karl Hartwig. Tickets are on sale here.

Twelve Foot Ninja have released a new video for their track Shuriken. The clip includes footage from the last twelve months of the band touring on the back of their debut record Silent Machine and you can check it out here. To coincide with the release, the band have scheduled a national tour kicking off at the end of August (dates below).

The vinyl reissue of Like...Alaska’s 2008 album On Against Want is available here in a choice of brown/off white or standard black. The release is due through Poison City Records September 9 and coincides with the band’s reunion appearance at this year’s Weekender.

Sydney’s Fattura Della Morte are back in action with their newest release Ouranophobia due for release August 1. The five-track set was recorded at Newcastle’s RTN Studios with Geoff Mullard (Jen Buxton, Fear Like Us) behind the boards. Listen to a song from the release entitled The Artist Formerly Known As here.

Watch Monuments’ new video for Dream In Sync here. The band’s debut album Existence will see an August 9 release through Hindsight Records.

Adelaide’s Truth Corroded have entered the studio to record their new album The Saviours Slain. The album is slated for mixing by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Unearth) at Audiohammer Studios in Florida and will be released later in the year through Truth Inc. Records.

Mezzanine have released a video for the song Mannequin Man from their upcoming debut album. The clip was directed by band guitarist Oliver James and you can check it out here.

Cabin Fever have released their debut album Voices and have announced a launch show at Perth’s Beat Nightclub on August 2. Listen to the release in its entirety here and pick up a physical copy here.


Not a lot of news in the ARIA top 50 album charts this week. Three of the top fifteen spots are occupied by The Voice contestants after debuts by Luke Kennedy and Celia Pavey (#6 and #14 respectively), Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail slips to #3 and Bliss N Eso’s Circus In The Sky to #5. The top 20 is rounded out by Bernard Fanning’s Departures (#18), Kanye West’s Yeezus (#19) and Josh Pyke’s The Beginning And The End Of Everything (#20).
