Jeff Rosenstock (usa) + Antarctigo Vespucci + Camp Cope
No stranger to our shores, New York’s JEFF ROSENSTOCK is returning Australia this March for a national tour to promote his recent solo album We Cool? (2015), with support from Antarctigo Vespucci, and Melbourne’s Camp Cope. This will be Jeff Rosenstock’s fourth time in Australia, after touring with his band Bomb The Music Industry in 2012 and 2013 and producing The Smith Street Band’s third album Throw Me In The River in 2014.
Released in March 2015, JEFF ROSENSTOCK’s second solo album and first SideOneDummy release We Cool? was universally met with rave reviews across the world. The Music boasted that “it’s fast, fun, intelligent pop-punk of the highest order,” and its release led to a relentless touring schedule including shows withAlkaline Trio, Modern Baseball and PUP. This tour will see JEFF ROSENSTOCKperform songs from We Cool? live for the first time in Australia backed by Bruce Lee Band drummer Kevin Higuchi and former Bomb The Music Industry bassistJohn DeDomenici.
And if that wasn’t enough, making the most of his time down-under, JEFF ROSENSTOCK will use the tour as an opportunity to present Antarctigo Vespucci, his power-pop collaboration with Chris Farren of Fake Problems. Formed in early 2014 as a one off recording project whilst Farren was visiting Brooklyn, Antarctigo Vespucci has since released two EPs and an album. This will only be Farren’s second time in Australia, having previously played in support of The Gaslight Anthem in 2015 which ended up a career defining tour: he miraculously managed to write and record his EP Where U Are in the stolen moments between sound checks, lobby calls and flights across the country.
Joining JEFF ROSENSTOCK and Antarctigo Vespucci on all dates will be Melbourne buzz-band Camp Cope. Having recently signed to Poison City Records to release their debut album due in April, the trio have quickly forged a reputation as the band to watch in 2016.

Total Chaos (usa) + No Idea + Spew n Guts + Wolfpack + Counterattack
TOTAL CHAOS – Australian Tour March 2016
Created in 1989 out of the desperate need to save the dying genre of punk rock, Californian shredders Total Chaos are now revered worldwide.

Now the band are finally bringing their blistering live show down under playing a scorching selection of tracks spanning 25 years of attack & action and tickets are great value at only $30 + BF.
Joining them for the tour on all shows is ripping Australian not-for-profit thrash punk juggernaut Wolfpack who have now raised over $19,500 for charity & animal welfare and are back on the road promoting their new EP ‘Benefit Four’.
Also playing at the Melbourne show only are great local punk rock acts No Idea, Spew’n’Guts and Counter Attack.

Foundation (USA) + Rebirth + Hitlist + Crush the Demoniac
Life.Lair.Regret Records & Broken Hive Records Presents : FOUNDATION
“End Of The Rope” Final Australian Tour March 2016 With Special Guests Rebirth.
Having announced they will hang up the instruments in 2016, Foundation will return to Australia for the last time in March for a victory lap showcasing their entire back catalogue. Last seen in Australia as part of the Break The Ice festival in 2014, the band also took in the east coast for a run of shows that flattened venues. Knowing this will be the last chance to dance forever, it’s time for Australia to say goodbye to one of the most important hardcore bands of the last decade.
A band that has never compromised their message or intensity, Foundation laid down their final release in “Turncoat,” a 5 song EP dropped in 2015 that showed no signs that the band was slowing down and was going to go out with a bang and not a whimper. Turncoat finishes the job that Foundation started with their self titled EP in 2008, 7 years of straight edge and hardcore anthems, fuel to fire the mind and the heart and all perfect for performance in a sweaty crowded room.
Joining Foundation in their victory lap around down under will be Melbourne’s Rebirth. A band that wears their ethics on their sleeves, Rebirth has made ripples in the Australian hardcore scene, bringing back socially aware straight edge hardcore reminiscent of the greats like Indecision, Trial and Earth Crisis. Having dropped 4 releases in just over a year both independently and through Life.Lair.Regret, Rebirth are readying their debut LP for release early 2016 and will air out tracks new and old on this tour.
Foundation and Rebirth will be heading down the east coast this march taking in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in a final goodbye to Australia. Show your devotion, get your rope and don’t miss Foundation, one last time.
