ANNOUNCE 2018 AUSTRALIAN TOUR
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS HUNDREDTH
Bursting on to the scene in 2012, Canterbury quartet Moose Blood solidified themselves as one of the UK's hottest exports. With an absolutely exceptional clutch of new songs under their belt, Moose Blood are thrilled to announce their eagerly-awaited return to Australia touring nationally in August/September with special guests, Hundredth.
In an era where a majority of musicians seem to view writing good songs as low down the list of attributes required for a successful career, Moose Blood are that rarest of things: a band who let the songs do the talking.
2016's 'Blush' took the best of American mid-west emo and updated it with a quintessentially British twist, proved to be a breakout success, crashing the UK top 10 and propelling the band on to the main stages of Reading and Leeds Festival and Lollapalooza as well sold out shows at L.A's legendary Troubadour, New York's Bowery Ballroom and London's KOKO - to say nothing of the Kerrang! and Alternative Press Music Awards nominations they've picked up on the way.
Their 2018 release 'I Don't Think I Can Do This Anymore' (out now via Hopeless Records) was recorded in Los Angeles with long-time collaborator Beau Burchell. It's an LP which delves into the most complexly emotional territory they've ever explored.
Unfortunately Movements have had to pull out of the tour with the band passing on a message to their fans. "Sorry Australia but we are cancelling our recently announced tour. We have a commitment to our fans and we will do our best to make it over to you as soon as we can"
The absolute silver lining is that Hundredth have been confirmed as support! Hundredth have made quite a statement recently moving from their melodic hard-core sound to a sound that meshes together emo, post-rock and dream pop. Fans and media have embraced the commitment and sheer guts it took to produce their new album 'Rare'. Dying Scene called it "a mesmerising and darkly beautiful album" whilst Alternative Press placed it in their top 10 albums of 2017.
Hundredth are stoked to be finally touring Australia again...."We are super amped to be back in Australia for the first time since 2013. A lot has changed for us in the last 5 years and we are stoked to share our new vibe, and our new record RARE with Australia for the first time. Big ups to Moose Blood for having us out!
Taking in the biggest venues Moose Blood have ever tackled, the four-piece look set to be helping a lot more fans, old and new so get along to one of the shows.
