Bay Area punk band Heartsounds return to Australia this time next week to kick off their run of dates to promote ‘Dualistic Nihilist‘.
Local supports were recently announced, a few news ones added, with one more surprise to come for Melbourne. You can see those below. Time to grab your tickets and get amongst the good times.
Fresh off the release of their new one track, nineteen and a half minute epic ‘Dualistic Nihilist,‘ Heartsounds will play five shows, stopping in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne with guests Nerdlinger.
‘Dualistic Nihilist‘ is not your traditional full-length record, but instead as mentioned a singular near 20 minute long epic – a journey into the depths of mental collapse.
After writing 3 full-length records since the band’s formation in 2009, Heartsounds wanted to challenge themselves with something different – an endeavor more unique and exploratory of uncharted musical territory, combined with the lyrical recreation of a true story revolving around severe mental illness and turmoil.
Sonically, Heartsounds remains true to their roots of ripping fast, melodic punk rock, categorized more specifically by dynamic vocal harmonies, heavy-metal inspired metallic riffs, and tight-knit musicianship. While honoring their past, the band succeeds with venturing into new regions of melody and expression that will surely surprise and please long-time fans of the band.
‘Dualistic Nihilist‘ is certainly a risk, but one that has resulted in the most emotionally and musically expansive record that the band has ever created – a journey that does not repeat itself nor overstay it’s welcome, but instead showcases a refreshing slice of razor-sharp melodic punk rock free of the confines of a traditional album structure.
