Urban Spread featuring The Delta Riggs

Urban Spread featuring The Delta Riggs

As we crawl out from the hangover brought on by back to back massive shows by post-punk partiers DZ Deathrays and metalcore legends in the making Northlane, Urban Spread is extremely excited to announce the next gang of artists who will be joining us for our fourth instalment.

The Delta Riggs, My Echo, and The VANNS will be taking over The Chelsea Heights Hotel and stuffing the night with more sweet tunes, tight pants and party fun times than you can shake a stick at.

Melbourne based rockers The Delta Riggs have been bringing their explosive live shows to punters all around the world, most recently kicking out the jams around Australia at Groovin The Moo. Their high energy performances have seen them headhunted by Kasabian and Foo Fighters as supports for their recent Australian tours; and legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page even stopped by one of The Delta Riggs’ London shows- you can’t buy an endorsement better than that. When they tear in to Urban Spread, the boys will be fresh off the Splendour Bender Weekender (Splendour In the Grass) and ready to deliver some of their wildest shows yet.

Fellow Melbourneites My Echo walk the line between punk and good old fashioned rock n roll, and have a killer time doing it. Their churning, sweaty gigs have become the stuff of legend, and their stellar efforts supporting melodic punks Jimmy Eat World and good mates Kingswood have widened their already growing exposure. Miss them at your own peril.

Hailing from the New South Wales town of Kiama, The VANNS burst from the shadows of their rusty farm shed two years ago to deliver an infectious mash of blues and indie rock. The straight up chillers will provide the sounds, you provide the vibes.

As always, our Urban Spread tastemaker DJs will be spinning all things loud in- between & after the bands are done to keep you partying on into the wee hours.

Legendary rockers The Angels are delving into their back catalogue for a special run of shows in 2015, aptly titled the A – Z Tour.

With a raft of hits to their name, this is a rare opportunity for music fans to hear some of the biggest hits, mixed with some classic rarities and of course, all the crowd favourites.

With songs like Dogs Are Talking, No Secrets and Take A Long Line to name a few, this is certainly going to be a memorable night of awesome Aussie rock.

The A – Z Tour has been created due to popular demand and runs in two parts, kicking off with a set of 13 songs in round one, an interval, and then the final 13 songs, and encores. There are no support acts, this is just The Angels, in the finest form and rocking as hard as ever.

Urban Spread featuring In Hearts Wake

Urban Spread featuring In Hearts Wake

This year has seen In Hearts Wake rise to become one of the nation's most admired acts. Following the release of Skydancer and its subsequent #2 debut on the ARIA chart, the band embarked on an entirely sold out tour of capital cities across Australia.

The momentum that has carried the band through the first half of 2015 shows no signs of slowing, with the band set to embark on The 'Badlands' Regional Tour throughout September.

Skydancer was the highest selling Australian album on its week of release and it marks the second top ten debut in twelve months for the band, with previous album Earthwalker entering the chart at #5.Skydancer has received media acclaim from the global music press, with Blunt Magazine calling it "a heck of a decent record," Rock Sound dubbing it "stunning," and The Music describing In Hearts Wake as "the real deal."

The release of Skydancer induced what was to become a pinnacle moment in the band's touring career. Beyond overwhelming energy in the room, all shows on the Skydancer Tour were sold to capacity, including a 2000 strong audience at the Sydney Roundhouse. The Melbourne event at 170 Russell was recorded by triple j to be aired as part of their Live At The Wireless program.

In Hearts Wake are currently wrapping up a successful run of shows overseas where they played an extraordinary set at Download Festival in the UK, Graspop in Belgium, a string of shows supporting Every Time I Die in France and Spain, and their first headlining shows in Europe. Foregoing any suggestion of rest, the second half of the year will see In Hearts Wake join Northlane for a run of Canadian/American dates in August before returning to Europe in support of Asking Alexandria in October.

Joining In Hearts Wake on The 'Badlands' Regional Tour will be special guests Make Them Suffer, Ocean Grove and Stories.

The Getaway Plan

The Getaway Plan

The Dark Horses Tour
Buy Tickets Online

The 'dark horse' springs from nowhere, claiming unexpected, sometimes shocking success. Having weathered a two year break up, member departures, various personal obstacles and almost five years without a recorded release, it's easy to consider THE GETAWAY PLAN as such. Their anticipated third LP Dark Horses will be revealed on July 3.

Working with long time friend of the band Samuel K on production duties, this is The Getaway Plan's first album conceived, written and recorded completely in Australia. Funded through the generosity of the band's famously dedicated fan base, Dark Horses sees the band refine their sound, drawing together lessons learned on 2008's wildly successful Other Voices, Other Rooms and 2011's Requiem . The writing process for this record was open, the band members collaborating with a newfound vigour. Strange, that after ten years in the saddle this band is finally beginning to find their feet. Sample their efforts via introductory track 'Landscapes'.

The Getaway Plan have engendered their 'Dark Horses' with optimistic spirit of focus, determination and dedication from which it sprang. Catch The Getaway Plan on the road this year as they introduce it to the world with all the passion with which their name has always been synonymous.

Hoodoo Gurus

Hoodoo Gurus

Hoodoo Guru in Chief, Dave Faulkner was once asked whether the band he sings and plays guitar for, had left an influence. "I know we have," he replied. "I see it in lots of things going on, but whether it's our influence or people that we were influenced by, who can tell? I see our way of thinking, which is something that when we started I didn't see as much of."

The Hoodoo Gurus formed in Sydney on January 1, 1981 to play their first "show" in an inner city lounge room. Core members are Dave Faulkner and Brad Shepherd joined along the way by Mark Kingsmill ('83) and Rick Grossman ('89)

The band’s debut Stoneage Romeos, full of garage punk songs and pop references, was named Australian Debut Album of the Year and was released in America where it stayed at number 1 in the Alternative / College charts for 7 weeks, becoming one of the most played albums for the year on the college network.

Mars Needs Guitars, the band’s second album, topped the charts and went gold within three weeks and platinum shortly afterwards. Blow Your Cool, released in 1986, was a massive pop hit propelled by the band’s highest charting single 'What's My Scene”. Album 4, Magnum Cum Louder, reaches Number One on the American College and Alternative charts. Followed by albums Kinky, Crank, Blue Cave, Mach Schau and Purity of Essence the band continued to tour regularly through Europe, North America, Australia and Brazil.

In 2011 and 2012 the band curated and headlined the extremely successful Dig It Up national tour comprised of some 26 bands and solo artists each year who all shared the same the love of the culture and music that inspired the Hoodoo Gurus.

Through Sony Music the Gurus released their successful "Gold Watch" best of compilation in 2011.

The Hoodoo Gurus were inducted into Australian Music Hall of Fame in July, 2007.
