Mineral (usa): + Garret Klahn (usa) + Arrows (bris)
April 24, 2014 – Seminal Austin, TX band Mineral announced a reunion tour that included a handful of dates and an appearance at Fest in Gainesville, FL. The rest of the world waited with baited breath hoping for more. Shows were added in the US, then Europe and mostly recently Japan. Now, it is with great pleasure we announce that Mineral will make their way to Australia for the first time ever for three intimate shows in Feb 2015.
Formed in Houston, TX in 1994 by friends Chris Simpson, Jeremy Gomez (bass), Scott McCarver (guitar), and Gabriel Wiley (drums), Mineral proved to be a powerful and lasting influence across a then-burgeoning indie and emo music scene in spite of their short career. The band cut their teeth on the road before recording a single note, touring alongside bands including Jimmy Eat World, The Promise Ring, Texas is the Reason, Knapsack, Braid, and The Get Up Kids. Mineral relocated to Austin and released debut single “Gloria b/w Parking Lot” via Caulfield Records before signing to crank!, which would release their debut LP The Power Of Failing in 1996.
Also travelling to Australia for the very first time to join the tour is Texas Is The Reason frontman Garrett Klahn, performing Texas Is The Reason classics from the genre defining
Do You Know Who You Are as well as new songs from his debut solo album on Rise Records.
Brisbane’s post rock balladeers Arrows will reunite once more to kick off the shows and round out this historic occasion.

Break Even + Hopeless + Endless Heights + Postblue
Having left a legacy in the punk and hardcore communities across Australia and around the world back when they disbanded back in in 2012, BREAK EVEN have re-grouped and returned with their new song “Young & Bright” while gearing up to get out on the I’d Rather Be Giggin’ Tour 2015. BREAK EVEN’s honest and heartfelt approach to songwriting left a lasting impression on the hardcore community, and “Young & Bright” speaks as not only a fond memory to these years, but a celebration of what’s to come.
2010 saw the first I’d Rather Be Giggin’ tour travel across Australia with one of the most impressive local punk/hardcore lineups the country had to offer, now in 2015 the tour is back stronger than ever hitting every capital city in Australia headlined by BREAK EVEN with HOPELESS, ENDLESS HEIGHTS and POSTBLUE. This stellar lineup of bands past and present will be one that the punk and hardcore communities will remember for years to come.
After keeping quiet for the past few years, the founding members of HOPELESS are together again and eager to share their reflective and naïvely optimistic brand of melodic hardcore for one final tour. 
Starting out in late 2007, five friends made a name for themselves through hard work on the touring circuit in Australia and abroad, writing well-received releases and being respected as a band that took nothing for granted. HOPELESS have decided to go out just as they started, together, and with a bang.
ENDLESS HEIGHTS are five friends with a passion for music and adventure alike. They have established themselves as one of Australia’s most hard-working bands, having toured Australia with music names of Basement (UK), Northlane, Trophy Eyes, Superhaven (USA) and In Hearts Awake amongst others. ENDLESS HEIGHTS pride themselves on a DIY vision and an honest aesthetic, and the band continues to grow, and grow, while making as many memories as they can along the way.
Rounding off the tour is Byron Bay’s own POSTBLUE, a young band with a sound that lurches between alt-rock and fuzzed-out shoegaze, paying homage to the 90’s greats. Releasing through Melbourne’s Poison City Records, the band has carved out a sonic niche that is unmistakably their own. They have an impressive amount of experience under their belts already, playing shows with the likes of Violent Soho, Title Fight, Luca Brasi and The Smith Street Band, at this year’s Splendour In The Grass festival.

Citizen (usa) + Guests. 18+
Citizen Australian Tour April 2015
Slowly growing and changing since they first met as midwestern high-schoolers in 2009, Citizen have emerged today as one of underground alternative rock’s most promising bands. The band signed to Run For Cover Records in early 2012 and embarked on months of non-stop touring supporting their early EP ‘Young States’ and 2013’s ‘Youth’ LP.
From the first note of “Youth’s” opener ‘Roam The Room’, Youth’s massive, towering rock songs bleed emotion all the way through until the tape stops on closer ‘Drawn Out’. Citizen have called on the ghosts of Brand New’s ‘The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Of Me’ and early Nirvana, creating an engaging blend of aggression and ambiance. Beautifully harmonized half-shouted vocals along with fuzzy, reverbed-out leads lend weight to the album’s mood while also making it impossibly catchy.
