US band Wild Flag will embark on their first Australian tour in March next year. Appearing on the Golden Plains Sixx line-up, they’ll also be doing a run of shows in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
Formed in 2010 by members Carrie Brownstein, Janet Weiss, Mary Timony and Rebecca Cole, and no bassist, Wild Flag have put the emphasis squarely on grappling guitar play, splashy melodies and hard-charging drums. After a year of road testing their songs in tiny clubs and various other live arenas, the band finally recorded their self-titled debut record in early 2011, and released the album to fervent critical acclaim in Australia this past September.
