August Gig Guide

July 30, 2019

As we creep on closer to the warmer months, there’s no better time to catch some fresh tunes from some quality live acts. A bit of a genre smorgasbord this month, enjoy our hand-picked freshest gigs to look forward to this month and get you dancing like it’s an endless summer.

Bag Raiders
Regulars on the festival line up, electro dynamic duo Jack Glass and Chris Stracey will be touring Australia for their own headline shows this August. Celebrating the launch of their second album ‘Horizons’, you can catch the freshest tunes live for the first time. This album documents their journey since their ARIA nominated Top 10 album in 2010, featuring hit singles like ‘Sunlight’ and the triple-platinum selling and meme phenomenon ‘Shooting Stars’.

 

Architects
British metalcore masters Architects are bringing their most important and emotionally powerful album to Australia this August. ‘Holy Hell’ is the band’s first release since the tragic death of the chief songwriter and guitarist Tom Searle. This will be the band’s first tour since 2017 and is sure to be a concert not to miss.

“In those first months after Tom’s death, I didn’t deal with it at all and I felt so unhappy and anxious,” drummer Dan, who is also Tom’s brother, explains. “I’d ignored it and just tried to cope. But I knew that at some point, I had to learn from it.”

 

Snow Patrol
Irish rockers Snow Patrol are coming to Australia in August to treat us to an extra special taste of their musical talent – a completely acoustic musical experience. In the twenty-plus years since they released their debut album ‘Songs for Polarbears’, Snow Patrol have earned their place as one of the biggest bands in the world. With 15 million global album sales to their name, 5 UK Platinum albums, Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations, and 8x Platinum ARIA accreditations, it’s certain that Snow Patrol know what they are doing. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime concert!
