Driving It Home With LUCAS STONE From HAMMERS

Share This:

Esteemed American rock outfit He Is Legend recently announced their return visit to Australia this May for their first run of shows here since Soundwave 2015.

And if that isn’t enough to get your live mojo firing, He Is Legend have hand selected Aussie rock monsters Hammers to support the whole tour.

“They fill that hole that Soundgarden left behind.”

Hammers are well known for their dynamic live performances and typical Australian sense of adventure, not to mention their love of a good time. As such they look set to launch into the second half of 2023 on the back of another triumphant tour.

Axeman Lucas Stone joined HEAVY soon after the announcement to share his excitement.

“It’s an honour and a privilege,” he smiled. “They are one of those special bands. We love that band. We’ve been a fan since they were wee burns. I think the biggest thing about that band that I’ve been most impressed with is they were essentially a scene band in the early 2000s and obviously with the release of I Am Hollywood and Suck Out The Poison they slotted right into that part of their world. Their general trajectory and growth where they started out as one thing and became something totally different and so much more mature… they’re a special cult status band that has probably been a bigger influence on bands around the world than we know.”

In the full interview, Lucas talks about what fans can expect from Hammers on the shows, constructing set lists to showcase the band’s natural ability, what defines an “Aussie twist” with music, how Hammers’ sound has changed over their career, new music and more.
