SERAPHS COAL + ANTISKEPTIC + FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY
No stranger to controversy, Adelaide’s SERAPHS COAL was accused of “voter fraud” when their single “Hope Is Where the Heart Is” debuted at #4 on Triple J’s Net 50, before proceeding to hold steady at #1. This was the start of a series of unfortunate events that Juice Magazine dubbed “Seraphsgate”, ultimately seeing the band blacklisted by Triple J. The year 2020 see’s the band coming back one last time for some special “Resurrection” shows & they’ve asked their old friends to come along for the ride.
ANTISKEPTIC first burst onto the scene 20 years ago. Formed out the back of a record store in 1999, they shot to the forefront of the early naughties’ rush of exciting Australian rock bands like Gyroscope, Kisschasy and Parkway Drive. Their impressive run saw the band release three albums, tour relentlessly and gather a hugely dedicated fanbase, becoming Triple J darlings in the process thanks to their 2002 Hottest 100 hit ‘Called’.
FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY captured the hearts of all pop-punk fans in the early 2000’s. Their Single "Believe" from the “One for the Team EP” received high rotation on Triple J, rocketing into the #1 spot on the net 50 in 2003. After a promise of an album that never came and to the dismay of their strong and ever growing fanbase, the band called it a day in 2004 and this tour will see original line up back together for the first time since.
Opening up the the Sydney show will be the NSW central coast boys ANGELA’s DISH & Melbourne’s WISHFUL THINKNIG with more to be announced.
