Listen to our brand new track DEAD INSIDE before its official release this weekend at Sydneys OXFORD ARTS FACTORY
Friends! Please meet Natalie Connolly!!! She will be Joining us on guitar @OXFORD ART FACTORY (https://www.facebook.com/events/1525822010996389/) as well as a few super exciting shows soon to be announced. We are currently in the throes of an extraordinarily passionate honeymoon period and we’re looking forward to delivering the spawn of our labors of love live!
Ronnie’s split came as a mutual decision between both parties and hasn’t cooled our love for the guy one single molecule. Ronnie Simmons brought an energy and enthusiasm that was absolutely perfect at the time and kinda necessary considering the tour load of the last coupla’ years. That time spent across the world and in each others pockets however left little guesswork as to whether remaining in each others pockets would best serve our collective future dreams.
Fact is, Ronnie’s a Ramones guy. He uses two colours and uses them fucking well! We prefer the full colour wheel and could not be happier to get back to what The Art is all about. Everybody wins and I’m sure Ron ain’t complaining, strumming windmills in his new band The Raskins on tour with Motley Crue and Alice Cooper!
Evolution huh, it’s a beautiful thing. Thanks for sharing this ride with us and we promise to continue shedding and sharing the most honest, inspired and hopefully inspiring music we can with you all. In the live realm, we will of course continue to beat ourselves blind. And we know you’ll be right there with us!
LOVE, Zar, KJ & Jordan
Rarely seen on Aussie stages in 2014, see The Art’s world renowned live show. An abrasive, exciting and intoxicating blend of melody, mayhem and solid rock ‘know how’.
Through the wreckage of The Art’s most trialling year, the band return with their strongest effort yet. A year of battling long American roads, European festivals, drug charge allegations and a change in personnel has proved the winning formula for this band at their creative peak. An epiphany amid chaos, The Art’s new single ‘Dead Inside’ showcases the band’s extraordinary ability to touch a nerve through truth, song and daring sonic expression.
The first Australian performance in almost a year is now booked for November 8at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory. In favour of touring, the band will focus all attention for the release of single ‘Dead Inside’ on this one hometown show. The band have opened this event as a platform for their most respected peers in the musical and creative realms also. With the scale of offerings way beyond that of a regular club show, Oxford Art Factory are offering admittance to the entire venue, two stages and performing areas for the price of one ticket. Nine bands, plus a selection of stalls showcasing the art and wares of Sydney based creatives.
Support on the night comes by way of; Marlow, Fait Accompli, Bonez, Glass Ocean, Vanity Riots, Hailmary (WA), Daggerz, Rick Dangerous and the Silkie Bantams and Stars of Addiction.
