Toy Boats + Brittle Bones + Disappear + Yachtburner
The Reverence Hotel presents on November 28th a lineup showcasing a diverse array of Melbourne bands, each portraying their own approach to the weight of sound delivered with loud vital intent.
Headlining, Hugo Costin’s nostalgia soaked Toy Boats will perform with a full lineup after recently releasing the debut album ‘Wedding Town’. The main support Brittle Bones will express their own brand of moody southern rock. Disappear will get across their melancholy method of slow and heavy shoegaze. And opening the show, Yachtburner will liberally apply their noise ridden sludge rock. A night very worth approaching.

Infinite Void + Chinese Burns Unit + Freak Wave + Amateur Drunks
Chinese Burns Unit rarely gets to practice let alone play in Melbourne but that doesnt mean they are noise polluters. Collectively, they have been around a while in many bands and musical projects and know how to fake a practiced performance 95% of the time. It also helps that the songs are brilliant and sound unreal even when they are played drunk or unrehearsed (or both). One such set of songs are on the 7″ Reptilian Overlords that the band are launching on the weekend starting the 5th, at the Reverence with three other incredible bands – Infinite Void, Freak Wave and Amateur Drunks

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.
