Upcoming art-hardcore band Rolo Tomassi have announced that they’ll be returning to Australia for a headline tour in September and October.
Blending dizzying mathcore technicality with a sense of tightly-wound drama and backing it all up with some serious songwriting nous, these British kids aren’t afraid to break the rules. While Refused and The Dillinger Escape Plan are clear reference points, their diverse and critically-acclaimed sound moves far beyond just copping moves from their hardcore idols.
They’ll be out here repping their latest record, Astraea. Check out their video for ‘Howl’ from that album:
Joining Rolo Tomassi on this tour will be Totally Unicorn and Stockades. Totally Unicorn have been a fixture of the Australian hardcore scene for some time now, building a reputation for their maniacal compositions, destructive live shows and insatiable bearded horniness. Get amongst it.
Also jumping on board will be Melbourne’s Stockades, who have been hitting the road hard recently, bringing their quirky and technical post-hardcore stylings around the country.
Check out the dates below; tickets go on sale Monday 1 July.
