Long-revered veterans of garage The Oblivians have announced all of the local acts set to support them on their upcoming Australian tour, which is presented by Panache, Flightless and Aarght Records.
Down under for the 2015 edition of Golden Plains Festival, the American grunge trio have previously announced a slew of sideshows which will take place in all east coast major cities. This will be their first ever tour in Australia despite their almost-22-years of bandship; having broken up for a decade before reforming in 2008, and releasing a full-length album titled Desperation as recently as last year.
Anyway, let’s get to the supports. Low Life, Ausmuteants, The Living Eyes, Hierophants, The UV Race and The Onyas are just a few of the several garage-punk-tinged acts from around the country who will be joining The Oblivians on tour.
