The Round-up – Tuesday August 29th, 2017
Today we have signing news from Hack The Mainframe, album release date and new song from Spilt Cities, a video clip from The Contortionist, a new single from Stand Atlantic, and Australian tour dates for Mermaidens.
(29) Hawthorne Heights + River Oaks + Sienna Skies + Mark Rose (Spitalfield) @ Fowlers Live, Adelaide [Lic/AA]
(29) The Courtneys + Terrible Signal @ Mojo’s, Fremantle
The band came together from the ashes of punk bands Wiseheimer and Pants Optional in 2014 playing fast 90’s skate punk and with strong socio-political lyrics, quickly building a strong local following.
After their independent release of their debut EP ‘Tapped Online‘ Hack The Mainframe also featured the Pee Approved Vol 5 compilation with ‘May Street‘ which you can listen to below.
Catch the band supporting Direct Hit! and The Decline this Friday night at Hamilton Station Hotel in Newcastle, and also at The Sunken Monkey on the Central Coast on Saturday afternoon.
News on pre-orders and album release tour will be posted in the coming weeks.
Directed by Erez Bader, the video is the band’s second from their forthcoming LP, ‘Clairvoyant‘ due out in mid September.

“We made sure we took our time with the process. This video picks up where ‘Reimagined’ left off, and can actually be played in succession with it. We couldn’t be more pleased with the continuity and end result!“
Watch the video below.
On the track, the band’s vocalist/guitarist, Bonnie Fraser says,
“Sidewinder was written as a reminder that if you love someone, it’s important to acknowledge and accept differences between each other. Never compromise who you are, just to try and change something you can’t.“
