Title Fight (USA) + Paper Arms + Apart From This
Title Fight has announced an Australian headline tour this June in support of their new album Hyperview, out January 30 on Anti Records.
In the summer of 2014, the band decamped to Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA., where with producer/engineer Will Yip they had made their last three records to make Hyperview – the follow-up release to the band’s Spring Songs EP (Revelation Records, 2013). Hyperview is a massive leap forward from previous releases and is difficult to accomplish with words. The vocals are remarkably muted and lovely when compared to the blood-curdling caterwauling of earlier work. The lyrics are almost defiantly opaque. And when it comes to the music, this is an album that renders futile the exercise of conceiving bands as sums of influences, and of dutifully itemizing those influences. Hyperview can only be heard, and loved, as an artifact unto itself.
Joining Title Fight on this tour is Adelaide’s finest sons Paper Arms who’s new album ‘Great Mistakes‘ is now available through Poison City Records, it follows on nicely from their impressive ‘The Smoke Will Clear‘ album.

The Drunken Poachers
The Drunken Poachers, with their wily ways and wooden instruments, have… snuck boot-clad and boozed onto Melbourne’s live music stages. A dubious sextet not to be trusted, they poach the tunes of others and after a white-wash of their brand of Irish-blue-grass-country, they declare what never belonged to them, their own.
Dishonest and dirty and wearing flannelette better than you do, they’re leaving heavy heads and dented floors in their very catchy wake. With the aid of banjo, gee-tah, ukulele and mandolin, backed by Irish fiddle, uke bass and propped up with lager phone and a trifle of trumpet, their hearty harmonic throat is unlike any other.
The Drunken Poachers have a bashful approach to making feet tap and will be your best laid plan when you are out and on the hunt. Don’t go past The Drunken Poachers if you’re in to a band who will have your feet tapping to the bar and back. And back again.
See them every Friday night at The Reverence Hotel throughout the month of July!

Resist Presents: Code Orange “I Am King” Australian Tour 2015
Formed in 2008, Pittsburgh’s Code Orange does things their own way. Unconcerned with the direction of other artists, their brand of aggressive hardcore/punk merges hardcore power, intense dirge, and cryptic melody into their own uniquely-inspired sound. The band released a series of EP’s and demos that lead to 2012’s groundbreaking LP, Love Is Love/Return To Dust and toured the globe relentlessly over the course of two years in support of it.
In September of 2014, Code Orange released their landmark second album, I Am King, to great critical acclaim; Alternative Press hailed it as ”… riveting… at times overwhelming in the best possible way”. The album shifts from “heavy” to “hard to define” through the use of unorthodox guitar work and percussion and chaotic song structuring. I Am King shows Code Orange re-imagining what aggressive music can be, elevating and expanding what can be done within the confines of the genre without leaving it behind.
