Armed with their brand-new album Beast Vibrator, Japan’s heavily distorted heroes Guitar Wolf have announced they will be heading Down Under for a run of headlining shows on their Tour Magma.
The band have kept a fairly regular presence in Australia having performed here once in 2006 and again in 2011. This means fans are well aware of the potential for things to get crazy, and crazy-quick, at a Guitar Wolf gig. With all the gain in the world and amps turned up way past 11, The Wolf unleash a sonic assault through a live show that’s dripping with sex appeal and stage production.
“Everything must be in the red”, the band say of their sound, which is an ethos that’s lasted for 13 albums so far including one Greatest Hits release.
Guitar Wolf will be coming off the back of a 20-date US tour and a slot at Gonerfest so it’s safe to say they will be in good form come November. The garage rock power trio have a legacy of fucking shit up to maintain, so you’ll probably want to make it down to these shows.
All shows go on sale next Monday, 14th October.
UPDATE: Guitar Wolf have announced that the closing of The Gasometer in Collingwood will mean their Saturday, 30th November show will be moved to Melbourne’s The Public Bar, but as the band say, “The upside of this is that it is smaller, sweatier and squishier, like good punk rock should be.”
Tickets purchased for the show at The Gasometer are fully transferrable. Fans need only to bring them to The Public Bar and they will be honoured. Special guests for the night will be Drunk Mums and Gentleman.
