Tassie punks Luca Brasi have just announced a six-date national tour that sees them take on the entire country in some of their biggest venues to date.
Of course, their last tour sold out pretty comfortably off the back of their breakthrough record If This Is All We’re Going To Be, which nabbed the triple j feature album gong and cracked the #1 spot on the AIR charts, and they just landed in the Hottest 100 for the first time with ‘Anything Near Conviction’ hopping in at #90 last month.
The band also went on to support the likes of Violent Soho and The Smith Street Band, as well as overseas groups like PUP and Moose Blood, and have been doing the rounds at local festies like Laneway, UNIFY, and their hometown bash Party In The Paddock, so they’ll be able to tackle these bigger venues with ease.
Perhaos their most impressive result to date, though, has been frontman Tyler Richardson’s punk thrash cover of Hank Scorpio’s theme song from the Simpsons recently with Perth muso Dan Cribb. I mean, how do you top that?
Despite the bigger venues, this one will be in pretty high demand, so get in quick – dates are below. Tickets go on sale at 9am this Thursday, and you can get ’em here.
