ANTISKEPTIC, SERAPHS COAL + FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY
COME TOGETHER TO PLAY 2020 REUNION TOUR
No stranger to controversy, Adelaide’s Seraphs Coal was accused of “voter fraud” when their single “Hope Is Where the Heart Is” debuted at #4 on Triple J’s Net 50, before proceeding to hold steady at #1. This was the start of a series of unfortunate events that Juice Magazine dubbed “Seraphsgate”, ultimately seeing the band blacklisted by Triple J. Years have passed and Seraphs Coal have decided its time to give back to the die hard fans that got left behind with the controversy with a tell-all documentary titled ‘Through All These Years’, release date to be announced! In the meantime, the year 2020 see’s the band coming back one last time for some special “Resurrection” shows & they’ve asked their old friends to come along for the ride.
Antiskeptic first burst onto the scene 20 years ago. Formed out the back of a record store in 1999,they shot to the forefront of the early naughties’ rush of exciting Australian rock bands like Gyroscope, Kisschasy and Parkway Drive. Their impressive run saw the band release three albums, tour relentlessly and gather a hugely dedicated fanbase, becoming Triple J darlings in the process thanks to their 2002 Hottest 100 hit ‘Called’.
For Amusement Only captured the hearts of all pop-punk fans in the early 2000’s. Their Single “Believe” from the “One for the Team EP” received high rotation on Triple J, rocketing into the #1 spot on the net 50 in 2003. After a promise of an album that never came and to the dismay of their strong and ever growing fanbase, the band called it a day in 2004 and this tour will see the original line up back together for the first time since.
Opening up the Brisbane show at The Triffid on Friday March 6 will be Melbourne’s Wishful Thinking and The Black Catapult. Sydney’s show the night after taking place at Manning Bar will take support from Cambridge, NSW central coast boys Angela’s Dish and Wishful Thinking. Finishing the tour in Melbourne at Croxton Bandroom on Sunday March 8, pop punkers STR join the fun for their first show in eight years, supported by Hightime and punks Japan For.
With Seraphs Coal having already sold out three consecutive “Resurrection” shows in Adelaide over the weekend and with more unreleased material in the works, this short East Coast run is one not to be missed! Tickets available at Oztix!
