KOTS is a haunted collection of material tracing stories of resilience, courage, heartbreak and tragedy. Whether stripped down to a voice and a guitar or behind his band of close friends, Hay commands attention with an impassioned voice and a compelling narrative…
Jamie Hay will introduce the country to his upcoming record on tour alongside Lincoln Le Fevre from October to December on the King Of The Sun tour. The thrill of spontaneity permeates every set; but there’s sure to be smiles, truthful remunerations, some fists in the air and of course that voracious voice.

Hobbledehoy together with Birds Robe / Life Is Noise are presenting the first Australian visit for UK post-rockers 65daysofstatic.
Their most recent records ‘The Destruction of Small Ideas’ and ‘We Were Exploding Anyway’ have seen the band shift into an electronic-based sound that has seen them compared to peers such as Battles and Aphex Twin. But to describe a 65DOS live show is a difficult task to execute well. Viciously euphoric, frenetic, overwhelming, bordering on chaos and really, really loud. It’s what the band thrive on and how they win armies of new admirers every time they go out on the road. Tickets for the bands Australian dates are on sale now, details below.

An indie-rock tour de force, Arrows and their North American contemporaries Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) cosy together on the one record – otherwise separated 15,000 km’s apart.
Recently while in Perth, WA supporting Break Even‘s last shows, a couple of Jamie’s tracks were recorded by the folks at the Bondi Porch Sessions. You can watch “Rabbit On” below, appearing later this year on his upcoming debut album King Of The Sun.
A band who are no strangers to having songs placed across both independent and major film, television and cable programming networks, even within the top secret walls of the Pentagon and the Beijing Olympics. So it brings me great pride to announce This Will Destroy You‘s inauguration into Australian-made content, the Holden Motor Company have selected the band’s ‘The Mighty Rio Grande’ track to feature during the video promo for their first electric model, Holden Volt (watch below).
The first preview has already begun airing on Australian network and cable television, radio and online. In recent times the song has also been brought to worldwide attention by it’s prominent use through the 2011 film ‘Moneyball’ (Brad Pitt) and as the soundtrack to “Best Picture” nominee montage at the 84th Annual Academy Awards (aka The Oscars). TWDY are taking no prisoners.
Many months ago, Australian hardcore juggernauts Parkway Drive asked if Arrows could play a small part in their forthcoming second documentary with music for the opening sequence. It was certainly one of the more surreal emails I ever received, a tremendous honor for both Arrows and Hobbledehoy. Parkway’s first ‘The DVD’ was the highest selling Australian music DVD of 2009, achieving Platinum sales, winning the Rolling Stone Award for ‘Best Music DVD’ and outstanding international acclaim.
Arrows song ‘Whore Will Have Their Trinkets’ (from the album Modern Art & Politics) features for two and half minutes during the opening sequence of the new ‘Home Is For The Heartless’ as the band packs their gear before the tour.
The 75-minute feature film takes viewers on an epic global trek, from the band’s beloved hometown of Byron Bay, Australia to some of the most obscure destinations on the musical map. More than just a film about five musicians connecting with the planet and its inhabitants, ‘Home is for the Heartless’ is about the untold power of music and its ability to communicate beyond any language, geographical or cultural boundaries. Grab it in Australian stores today through Resist and an international release by Epitaph later in 2012.
Thank you so much to the kind folks in Parkway and at Resist Records.

I love watches, so this was a very exciting addition to our catalog for me. What started as a small gift for a few of our retail supporters and a quirky item for the online store has quickly become a unexpected fan favorite.
Now I’m thrilled to announce the Hobbledehoy logo watch, featuring our all star viking mascot Vincent, has just made its centenary sales milestone! There are more on the way, back-order now loyal Hobbler, and your watch will ship out as soon as more arrive.
Eleventh He Reaches London created and self-released The Good Fight For Harmony originally in 2005, the record would soon catapult the young band from the isolated far West into national attention. Their self-funded pressings would quickly sell out, acclaim poured in from the oddest of places… all this for an unconventional Perth “rock” band, challenging listening for even most alternative press. There was something special here.
Recording Hollow Be My Name in the years to follow, both records would have proper retail CD releases on a now defunct label. Currently bunkered down in a studio an hour outside Perth for their third album, it’s time to unleash Eleventh’s debut in a format truly deserving. Remastered for both vinyl and digital, a record that has continued to stand proud, even after almost 7 years – The Good Fight For Harmony is in stores now.
