Luca Brasi Are Heading On Tour With Moose Blood This August
Tassie punk trailblazers Luca Brasi have had one hell of a fortnight. The week before last, they made their triple J feature album debut with If This Is All We’re Going To Be. Their third full-length offering to drop on Poison City, the LP was released into the wild that Friday to a country so engulfed in its tambourine-tinged summercore jams that the opus hit #18 on the ARIA Charts.
All of that comes off the back of the announcement that the quartet will trot the country as direct supports for The Smith Street Band – a tour that’s now completely sold out bar a new show in Perth – and today, the announcement of their own national headline tour.
With the past few weeks being the biggest in Luca Brasi’s history thus far, it makes sense that this tour will also be their biggest. They’ll hit Canberra, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne from August 17th through to the 27th, before wrapping it all up with a Tassie show in Hobart on the 28th.
Joining them will be the newly-crowned British emo kings in Moose Blood… We know, we’re losing our shit too. This tour is set to mark their first time vibing out on our shores – punters may remember their inclusion as one of the first bands announced for Soundwave 2016 last year, but… Y’know. The whole “gory festival demise” thing.
Timing is perfect though, because Moose Blood are set to release their second album, Blush, on August 5th via Hopeless Records. Rounding out the bill are Adelaide alt-punks The Hard Aches, who haven’t taken a single moment out of their touring schedule to breathe over the past few months, and are hell-bent on hitting every single venue in the entire fucking country.
Luca Brasi’s last national headline tun was the Aeroplane tour back in January. We tagged along to that (because as if we wouldn’t) and can honestly say it was a fucking killer night all ’round.
