One of Australia’s most talked about bands of the last year, Gang Of Youths, are returning to North America to tour this June. The band are returning off the back of a 3 show residency in New York playing 2 sold out nights at the Mercury Lounge followed by a performance at Rough Trade.

Regarded as one of Australia’s best live acts, Gang Of Youths will be previewing material from their upcoming sophomore album, which is the follow-up to their highly praised debut album ‘The Positions’. The band are no stranger to these shores, having both lived in Nashville, and recorded their debut album in New York with Kevin McMahon (Swans, Rhett Miller, Titus Andronicus), which was mixed by Peter Katis (The National, Local Natives, Frightened Rabbit).

Their debut record landed at #5 on the Australian album charts (ARIA charts) and notched five ARIA Award nominations, including “Best Rock Album.” The Positions received acclaim internationally from The Guardian, Stereogum, Rolling Stone Australia, Neon Gold, and more as the band supported the likes of Vampire Weekend, Sky Ferreira, and Manchester Orchestra on the road. They have since followed this record up with a new EP titled ‘Let Me Be Clear’ in July 2016 which landed at #2 in Australian charts.

To date the band have clocked up over 10,000,000 Spotify streams, they have been selling out some Australia’s most prestigious venues, and have played festivals across the world including Splendour In The Grass, Southbound Festival, Laneway Festival, Primavera, The Great Escape, and SXSW.
The Solid Ocean
The Solid Ocean is a band from Denver, Colorado that draws it's influence from many of the sounds made popular in the 80s that are resurfacing in music today. They play a unique blend of indie dance rock that is meant to get the audience moving.

The Solid Ocean became a band when Joey Lowery and Christian Garcia came together under similar interests and influence. Soon after, they added Bailey Sutton to complete the group.

The Solid Ocean is composed of:

Joey Lowery: lead vocals, rhythm guitar

Bailey Sutton: Lead guitar

Christian Garcia: drums, percussion, backup vocals
Anthony Ruptak & Midnight Friends
"His songs are like combines. Upon ignition the teeth and the gears begin churning and he just throttles it out and into the open – tearing up the fields, raping the land of its bounty and leaving the earth bare and naked and ashamed, but somehow grateful." ~ The Denver Syntax
