The voice of the disenfranchised, UK folk-punk and rock act The Levellers, gave strength to Britain’s rock scene during the post-'80s wasteland of pre-grunge music, most notably through their 1991 seminal and platinum-selling album, Levelling The Land, hailed as a redefining of the soundscape and counterculture.

Twenty-five years later, the band will plug back in for a live tour of Australia to celebrate the landmark release with local audiences. Levelling The Land dropped hit singles One Way, 15 Years, Far From Home, The Game, Liberty Song and the rest, making for an era-defining album propelling the act from being Brighton, UK-bred pub-fillers to Glastonbury headliners.

The Levellers kick off their Australian sojourn at Sydney’s The Factory (7 October), heading on to The Triffid, in Brisbane (8 October), Max Watts, Melbourne (9 October), and The Gov, in Adelaide (11 October), before slamming out their last show at Perth’s Capitol on 12 October.

Levellers have ordained to unleash their era-defining album, which will be performed in its entirety, over five big dates around the country with not only but also an extended encore set from their back catalogue of all-time favourites.

Tickets go on sale 16 December via Oztix, or check out theGuide for further details.
