The Big Ass Tour Has Just Scored A Big Ass Replacement Band
Today we’ve been reminded that even in terrible circumstances, you can always sift through the shit to find a silver lining. Following a recent heartfelt statement from The Ghost Inside which explained they would be withdrawing from all dates on the upcoming Big Ass Tour, it’s just been announced that rising post-hardcore stars Hands Like Houses will be stepping up to join The Amity Affliction, A Day To Remember and Motionless In White on the massive national tour that’s set to kick off in Sydney next Saturday.
Fresh from a 32-date world tour, the Canberra band will be bringing their energetic live show, ambitious instrumentation and powerful, emotive sound to the Big Ass Tour, with a slew of new songs to boot. We had the guys join us in the studio for our latest BLUNT TV session, where they performed their tracks “New Romantics” and “I Am”, so we can safely vouch for the calibre of the new tunes in a live setting. While an official release date is yet to be announced, we can expect the follow-up to 2013’s stellar Unimagine early next year. Onwards and upwards!
Watch Hands Like Houses perform “I Am” live for BLUNT TV below.
