I Heart Hiroshima Add More Shows to ‘The Rip’ Album Launch Tour, Announce Replacement Supports

Written by Daniel Clarke on October 6, 2009

With the latest installment in this trail of construction about to flood the driest of lands I Heart Hiroshima released their much agitated second album THE RIP on October 2. Swimming against the incessant currents they recorded the album early this year in the long grass of Runcorn with compatriot Mirko Vogel, before sailing to the distant shores of England to mix it all up back of lanes with Andy Gill (Gang of Four) in the much loved Beauchamp Building. First ship out of the dock Shakeytown has drawn the light of recognition and many a sailor will bless their saviour from the rocks.

I Heart Hiroshima have also had an amazing past month with a great performances at Big Sound getting great raps from everyone who attended, being selected by Street Press Australia as best current up and coming Australian band and wining a trip to One Movement conference in mid OCT (courtesy of them). They also featured on the covers of all their Australian music magazines early September… Time Off, Drum Media, Inpress, Rip It Up and Drum Media Perth… as well as picking up single of the week on iTunes! They also had great sets at the Brisbane Powerhouse Frankly with Peaches in DJ mode, in Melbourne and Sydney with Shonen Knife and at Brisbane’s Sounds of Spring…

I HEART HIROSHIMA ALBUM LAUNCH TOUR
Now with special guests FIRE! SANTA ROSA, FIRE! (shows as noted)

Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! have spent the past 2 years being the city of churches’ best kept secret, playing enthusiastic and passionate shows supporting some of the best international and national touring acts around. Their brand of monolithic, angular rock evokes former glories of bands such as Pretty Girls Make Graves and Q & Not U, as well as current luminaries My Disco and Minus the Bear. Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! also contains a pop-sensibility often relegated in today’s vapid culture to mobile ringtones and one-hit wonders. Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! (David Williams, Sam Stearne, Josh Flavel & Artyom Zinoviev)’s introduction to the Dot Dash/Remote Control Records stable, is the “War Coward” single/EP- 3 minutes of pitch-shifted, post-millennial tension, led by new singer/chanteuse Caitlin Duff.
