Honestly, we’ve only just recovered from what was inarguably the most destructive tour of all time, which saw Violent Soho invite their m8s DZ Deathrays, Dune Rates and Gooch Palms on a ride where the wheels fell off, there were no brakes or lights but everyone managed to turn up alive and fully lit, footage here.
Today, the Brissy legends have announced round-two, with a line-up of the ages inviting American hardcore punk band The Bronx to our shores to support Soho at their biggest stages yet.
“Violent Soho and The Bronx go together like cocaine and waffles. We are beyond stoked to be playing with the boys again. These shows are gonna be legendary.” – The Bronx
As if the line-up wasn’t hectic enough, joining the party is Tasmania’s hardest working and most endearing melodic punks Luca Brasi and Perth firecrackers Tired Lion.
“We are truly honoured to have The Bronx on board for these shows. There is no band in the world that can put on such a high energy performance the way that these guys do. As a band, we have always looked up to them a hell of a lot. Our friendship goes back over 10 years so to have our big Bros from the USA come all the way across the Pacific to play with us again means the world. Luca Brasi can also be held in the same esteem. For us, they are probably Australia’s best punk rock band by a long shot. And to have this line up complimented by such a class act as Tired Lion just puts the icing on the cake for what is going to be one epic fucking tour. Really, we are just so stoked!” – Violent Soho
Soho and The Bronx in itself would be an insane show, but add in two of the Australian punk scene’s finest outfits in the form of Luca Brasi and Tired Lion, and you’ve got yourself a collection of legends and a bad case of party fear.
General public tickets go on sale Friday 15 July – 9am (local time).
