Basement Are Heading On An Australian Tour In May


Revered emo punks Basement are back in action, bigger than ever and with more fire in their eyes than pollution in Beijing. After initially calling it quits with an “indefinite hiatus” announcement back in 2012, the English quartet reformed victorious in 2014, and finally, at the end of this January, will release their ridiculously-anticipated third LP. Promise Everything is due to hit shelves on January 29th through Cooking Vinyl, but Aussie fans have a lot more to look forward to beyond that.

Announced earlier this afternoon on Triple J’s Summer Lunch program, Basement will make their way Down Under in May to support Promise Everything with an eight-date sprint across the country. They’ll be hitting Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth from the 23rd to the 31st, playing to their biggest Australian crowds to date. The band were last seen rocking out on our shores just a little while after they announced their comeback (July 2014) – those shows were unbelievable, and if YouTube clips of their recent performances are any indication, these shows will only be even more intense.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Basement tour without some totally kick-arse support acts. Virginia indie-pop outfit Turnover will lead the proceedings, amicably hyping us up with cuts from their 2015 opus Peripheral Vision, while hardcore punk Perthians Break Even will kick the nights off with their neck-snapping brand of sweaty explosiveness.

Tickets on sale this Friday January 12th @ 9am.
