KillRockStar Entertainment presents San Diego melodic punk rock stalwarts Unwritten Law playing their seminal albums Blue Room and The Black Album in full in Australia this December with very special guests, Adelaide's The Grenadiers.
Formed in Poway, California Unwritten Law were a major part of the power pop-punk movement that swept through America in the early 90's. With ferocious punk energy and rock solid quality song craft, Unwritten Law broke through a crowd of contemporaries to gouge out their own unique furrow on the still forming melodic punk rock landscape. It was this groove that drew fans across the globe to the band no more so than in Australia where the band have fostered a long-lasting love affair through frequent successful tours. This time round the band will repay their faithful legion by playing two of their most loved albums in full, the cracking debut Blue Room and their engaging, game changing 3rd album Unwritten Law aka The Black Album.
Recorded in 1994 Blue Room was the album that changed everything for the then emerging California hopefuls. Released by local label Red Eye Records, it established their early sound of fast-paced punk rock and gave them the opportunity to build their reputation by playing local shows in and around the San Diego area. White-hot songs like "CPK," "Shallow," and "Suzanne" would become favourites with local fans and would remain in their live set for years to come. Blue Room was the album that brought Unwritten Law from the punk rock wilderness into the gaze of the wider music world changing their collective destiny in the process.
An album and four years after their blazing debut, Unwritten Law released their third album, the self-titled joint became known to fans of the band as The Black Album. It too changed the playing landscape for the outfit being their first record to chart, hitting number 16 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart. With perennial favourites "Teenage Suicide", "California Sky", "Holiday" and "Cailin", the album became a treasured and celebrated release for fans of the band and continue to quicken the pulse at live shows to this day. The album's harder edge and rawer guitar sound found wide-spread favour and helped cement the release as a high point in the band's back catalogue.
Joining Unwritten Law at all shows this December with be up and coming Adelaide locals The Grenadiers.
The young band first came to the attention of the nation four years ago via their critically acclaimed debut Songs The Devil Taught Us. Since then they have worked the country playing major shows like The Big Day Out, supporting a cast of local and international greats and winning Triple J Unearthed. With their recently released album Summer, The Grenadiers have proven themselves successors worthy of carrying the torch of high energy punk rock lit by the likes of Unwritten Law well into the future. To have these great bands covering two generations of sound and fury together will surely be a high water mark for Australian lovers of punk rock, bring on December!
