Event Details


With the release of their cheeky new album Ripper 23, the Hard-Ons have consolidated gains made on their last album  - the #4 ARIA Album charting I'm Sorry Sir, That Riff's Been Taken - and are making music with astounding vigour and purpose. Which is amazing for a band getting primed for their 20th European tour!
 While I'm Sorry Sir, That Riff's Been Taken was the first record made by the band's current line-up, Ripper 23 is the first one made from start to finish by the current line-up. New kid/old fan Tim Rogers came on board when most of the songs were already written last time; this time he's been involved from the start.
 Ripper 23 is 100% Hard-Ons though, which means that, like the cheap and nasty TV-advertised '70s hits compilation the album takes its title and cover art inspiration from, it is all over the shop (in a good way), highlighting the group's stylistic versatility.  From the punky attack of first single "Apartment For Two" to the big balls riffing of "In Falls Everything", the record is shot through with big hooks and a surging sonic power along with some sweet production touches.  

Ripper 23 is out June 2, and the band will tour nationally in June and July before heading overseas.

with special guests Nursery Crimes, Boom Boom Kid and The Thorazines.
