Been a cyclonic 2014 for Melbourne rockers Kingswood. Fresh off the release of their eagerly anticipated debut LP Microscopic Wars, a release nominated for Best Rock Album at last night’s ARIAs, the band are about to embark on a massive national tour in support.
Kicking off January 22nd, there’s little of the country that Kingswood aren’t going to pay a visit to this summer, with a mix of iconic venues, pubs off the beaten track and even a quick pit stop at the Mordialloc Food and Wine Festival with special guests to be announced.
I’m not saying with 100 percent certainty that they’ll be navigating the entire tour on their motorbikes and getting into blood-soaked shoot-outs with rival gangs along the way, but their mini-movie Micro Wars certainly does imply that it will be exactly that.
Kingswood are a supercharged live show not to be missed. Tickets go on sale 9am on Tuesday December 2nd.
