Defeater Announce Australian Tour
After a full year of no touring, in which front man Derek Archambault fully recovered from hip replacement surgery, Boston’s Defeater are back with their sights set on Australia. They return to our shores on May 28th, starting in Perth and then making their way around the country.
“After a year away from touring and nearly two of immobility, I have never been happier to push forward with Defeater,” said Archambault. “Releasing a new album with a label I have bought records from for more than 20 years still doesn’t feel real. Like many of my peers, Epitaph’s 90’s roster was a big part of the soundtrack to my teenage years. Signing to Epitaph, and tours in the US, Europe and Australia has the makings of a banner year for Defeater.”
Defeater are joined by fellow Bostonian’s Bane, who after almost twenty years of performing, released their fourth and final album “Don’t Wait Up” in May 2014. These supporting shows will be Bane’s final Australian tour dates!
