Legendary Swedish hardcore punks Refused, will return to Australian in January 2017 along with hardcore icons Sick Of It All and locals screamers High Tension. Refused released a boundary exploding album in 1998. Titled, The Shape Of Punk To Come, it cast a giant shadow over the world of underground rock and they posthumously influenced a new generation of musical revolutionaries.
Refused reformed 14 years later to a bunch of sold out dates across the globe, which led to the release of their first album in 17 years, titled Freedom in June 2015.
New York hardcore champs Sick Of It All are celebrating 30 years together, their last album, 2014’s The Last Act of Defiance did not leave fans disappointed. With teeth shattering street anthems, breakdown and break neck pace setting and a directive to their fans to stay hard and fight the power NYHC style.
Joining them both will be Melbourne noise makers, High Tension.
