Sunday 2nd Novemeber
More Than Life (UK) + guests
Charting a distinct evolution from their starting point of darkly melodic hardcore to almost alt-rock/indie inflections and tones, More Than Life are undeniably crossing over to pastures new without ever forgetting their roots nor history of their sound. Not to mention the UK guys are one of the biggest hardcore success stories of the past few years. More Than Life’s new record ‘What’s Left Of Me’ is an album for every rock fan – emotionally raw, heartfelt, energetic, anthemic and epic in the truest sense of the word. This could be just the beginning of a brave new chapter for one of the UK’s best, most-underrated bands. We can’t wait to host them in all their live glory on their Australian tour this November.
7pm – Band room – $23.50 pre-sale / $25 on the door if available
