Willy Wagtail chick in spring Gabe Feathers McGee

Yesterday I was outside and a Willy Wagtail kept flitting around my head, until I realised there was a new new chick nearby and the parents were warding me off their bubba. Both parents were very attentive with the fledgling. I was very impressed ~ Willy Wagtail fledgling chick in springtime, flitting here and

Thursday & Quicksand "GroovUs Feed Aartists"

Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY announce theyre coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, theyll bring the tour to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018. Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 12pm this Friday, October 13.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning tomorrow at 10am, October 11.

For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: livenation.com.au.

Revered for their anguished lyrics, chiming guitars and explosive stage presence, Thursday have been a house-hold name among punk and rock fans since their debut release, Waiting, 18 years ago. Coming out of New Jersey in 1999 at the precipice of the post-punk movement, Thursday were quick to gain the attention of fans and labels with their raw, emotive sound. However, it wasnt until their 2001 album, Full Collapse, that they fully defined a genre.

Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.

Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartets last album. Made completely on the bands own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.

Catch these two genre-defining acts together this March!.......................

The Black Swamp & Massic "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

 

Witches, wolves and cosmonauts

Teaming up for this double headliner launch show are Australian sludge-metal outfit The Black Swamp and hardcore groove act Massic.

This show marks the beginning of the touring cycle for TBSs new release Witches. The EP is the recording debut of new vocalist Luke Hosking (Azreal), who slots in seamlessly with the band once again channelling the riff driven influences of Black Sabbath through to Crowbar. With anthem-like choruses and infectious grooves, this new offering and their established back catalogue will have heads nodding in The Zoo.

With their debut LP Redshift, Massic has captured an honest, raw and abrasive sound, delivering 33 minutes of musical intensity, massive riffs and head-banging grooves. Theyve quickly built a reputation for their live performance, delivering their sound with as much conviction, passion and energy as physically and mentally possible. This will be on full display and then some as they continue their emergence into the Australian heavy music stratosphere.

This launch isnt just the start of new musical escapades, its a rallying point for Flaming Wrekage and the Swamp, with the former celebrating 1 year since the release of their thrash-groove opus From Flesh to Dust. Brisbane is the first in a string of national shows under the banner of the Witches & Wolves Tour seeing the quartet continue the campaign for Flesh. With many miles underfoot, the Wrekage crew certainly know how to incite a bangover wherever they roam. Prepare your necks for a ferocious thrashing!

Making their fitting debut at the Zoo is Elephant a heavy metal band derived from members of hard rock riff-masters The Flame Fields. Excellent musicianship abounds in this herd; make sure to stampede in early and bear witness to the beginning of their mammoth-like riffage!
