Headlines in Australian music do not come much more unexpected than this one!
Sydney group the Hard-Ons, who have been cranking out their own brand of punk rock for nearly 40 years now (yes, they started young), have announced the addition of a new member, one Tim Rogers.
Rogers, who recently celebrated his best chart debut in 20 years when You Am I‘s new album The Lives of Others landed at #2, is not only a long-time friend of the band, but a long-time fan, having caught them numerous times in his teenage years and bought their records from the start. Never happy with less than a full plate, Rogers will of course remain with You Am I, and will no doubt keep doing all the other things he does, but as of now he is also the Hard-Ons’ lead singer. Indeed, he has already recorded an album with them.
First single Hold Tight is out Friday, August 13. The album I’m Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken, is out October 8. Both are available for pre-order now.
