Following the announcement on January 9, 2012 that they were indeed, “Not Fucking Dead!”, legendary Swedish hardcore punk band Refused are now going to demonstrate to Australian audiences just how alive they are.
Reviving themselves from their original 1998 break-up, following the reissue of their influential the quartet have spent this year wowing audiences and pumping the blood of fans with a series of reunion shows, striking back with the fervour that first forged them over two decades ago.
Now Australian fans who have been chomping at the bit to bring the Swedes to our shores, with petitions and Facebook groups championing the cause since their reformation, Refused have confirmed they’ll be touring down under this November.
Or as the band succinctly put it in their press release: “We don’t know about you, but for us, in 2012, boredom is not on the table. See you in the pit.”
