Them Crooked Vultures Announce Tour Supports

The supergroup arrives in Australia next week, and in preparation organisers have announced the local support acts who will be lucky enough to share the stage with them across the country.

Punk rock band The Novocaines will help kick off the tour in their hometown of Perth. The Novocaines were ‘unearthed’ by, and later featured as a ‘next crop’ artist on Triple J radio. They have gained wide recognition for their ferocious on stage presence.

Both Melbourne shows will see Sailors and Swine bring their dark rock style to the stage. Said to harbour “blood soaked narratives and twanging guitars” (Time Out Brisbane), their performance will no doubt leave audiences enthralled.

Some call their sound grunge, others call it punk but Zeahorse are determined to break all moulds. The band is lined up to warm the Brisbane crowd with their spontaneous energy and bone rattling sound.

Formerly known as The Follow, The Art have finally returned home from their USA stint raring to go. The Sydney rockers have captivated audiences home and away with their high energy rock performances and at the Sydney show on January 26th, you’ll see just how much they have grown.

Crowds at the second Sydney show best stay alert, Melbourne rockers Fangs are taking the stage. Praised for their “highly animated and impassioned performance” style, their suave showmanship and anthemic tunes will knock you off your sensibilities and into the mosh pit in no time.

Kiwi band Cairo Knife Fight will open the show to audiences in Wellington and Auckland. Their unique sound is best described as a mix of rock, soul and beats as their songs grow, twist and turn against a solid rhythm section.

Anticipation for this tour has been building for months, from the stir generated by the ‘Follow What’s Heard’ campaign to the extra shows in Melbourne and Sydney to cope with popular demand. The addition of these bands cements this tour as too hot to miss in the New Year, or ever.
