Step-Panther, Gung Ho & Bored Nothing

7:30pm, Sat 4 May, 2013

Event Details

Three of Australia’s mighty new talents – Bored Nothing, Gung Ho and Step-Panther – are joining forces for the third instalment of The Triple Treat Tour, a co-headlining jaunt around the country taking place this May.

Hailing from Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney respectively, in their own rights these three garage-esque acts have toured relentlessly, received liberal helpings of praise from triple j and community radio, and recently dropped assured releases, poising them for their next steps.

Melbourne outfit Bored Nothing (aka Fergus Miller) didn't plan on having a fixed abode, let alone a much-talked-about album! Mixing and matching sounds from shoegaze and sludge-metal to loner folk, Bored Nothing's first radio single 'Shit for Brains' got a whole lot of radio love, and his debut self-titled album scored a coveted triple j feature album slot in January. Existing as a full band onstage, the outfit are quickly making a name for themselves having already supported the likes of Beach House, Best Coast and Bleeding Knees Club.

Sydney shred-rock trio Step-Panther quickly forged a reputation for fast and furious live performances, earning them the title of one the 100 Best New Bands of 2012 by NME. Following up their self-titled debut album released late-2011, Step-Panther unveiled 2013's Dreamcrusher EP around about the same time they were sharing stages with the likes of Blood Red Shoes and Jeff the Brotherhood. With a brazen display of brattiness Step-Panther will leave you sweating on the dancefloor.

Brisbane surf-pop DIY duo Gung Ho burst onto the scene with their debut single 'Twin Rays' in mid-2011 and have been gathering steam ever since. Continuing their slew of undeniable singles in 2012, Gung Ho delivered 'Side By Side' and 'Strangers' both lifted from their anticipated debut EP Anywhere Else. Having supported the likes of Whitest Boy Alive, Wavves, The Rubens and DZ Deathrays, Gung Ho are quickly becoming known for their explosively tight live set.
