Original band members – the Prince of Darkness himself: Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi will make a thunderous return to Australia in April 2013 for arena shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, in their first Aussie shows since 1974.


Having recently reformed for a run of shows with Bodyjar and One Dollar Short, Sydney band IRRELEVANT have announced a headline show at the Annandale Hotel for Saturday December 22nd. Joining them on the bill will be LO! Harbourer and Boneless (new band feat. Ex Bad Blood members). 


2013 marks 20 years of Anti-Flag. To mark the occasion they will be playing two very special shows in Sydney on December 29th celebrating the last days of their 19th year in existence. Over the two shows, the band will be splitting songs from all 8 of their albums. 

smlTheMenWith a love of scuzzy guitars and punk rock, Brooklyn quartet THE MEN released many a cassette since forming in 2008. But it was their focused, on point third album, 2012’s Open Your Heart, which won new fans’ hearts, with its goofy blues explosions, country-lovin’ dirges and straight-up indie punk anthems. Laneway Festival will mark The Men’s first trip to Oz.


On January 9, 2012 REFUSED announced to the world that they were indeed… NOT FUCKING DEAD! Now long suffering Australian fans get their turn. REFUSED are as vital as ever and will be touring this November and supports have just been announced for each show..


TThe ‘Make It A Decade’ Tour will see MILES AWAY head up an impressive triple bill of bands with CRUEL HAND (USA) and THE OTHERS for a string of intimate shows that you will not want to miss. Joining the lineup in Byron Bay will be one off reunions from THE STREET YOUTH and WORD UP! along with new band BONESTORM.


To support the release of "Lady Wisdom" Endless Heights will return to the road in December with new Broken Hive Records artist Civil War, in a tour that will see them headline their biggest shows to date and return to places they have visited in the last year with bands like Basement, The Swellers and Hopeless. 


Melbourne's The Broderick have announced they will be teaming up with Kiwis Anatagonist AD for a run of shows in December in both New Zealand and Australia.


Almost 3 years since their first Australian tour, PUNCH are coming back for an 11 date all ages tour! Kicking off in Melbourne, then working their way around and up the coast. If you saw them last time, you'll know this isn't to be missed… If you missed them in 2009, then here's your chance. Their latest 7" 'How Nothing Lasts' is out now on Deathwish / 625 Thrash / Discos Huelga.


Lagwagon have been on an absolute tear since the deluxe reissues of Duh, Trashed, Hoss, Double Plaidinum and Let’s Talk About Feelings late last year. 2012 has been an endless trek with non-stop touring through Canada, Europe, and the upcoming US Fat Wreck Tour in October. As if that weren’t enough, now they’ll be making a trip to Australia in November as well.
