About Pennywise

For the first time ever the So-Cal punk rock band will be performing their album ‘Straight Ahead’ in its entirety plus fan favourites. To celebrate the album’s 20th-anniversary Pennywisewill be performing all songs from the album and bringing with them long-time touring partners from California, STRUNG OUT and Swedish punk rockers NO FUN AT ALL, giving their Australian fans what will no doubt be the punk rock tour of the year.

Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles, a neighbourhood with a rich punk rock history, Pennywise began in 1988. The  band  would  go  on  to  amass an  international  following  through  relentless touring  and  a  melodic  high  energy sound merging melodic surf punk, blistering hardcore and the classic punk of their youth. The group has solidified their place in punk history with songs like the raging ‘Fuck  Authority’, ‘Alien’, and the band’s legendary ode to brotherhood and departed friends ‘Bro Hymn’.

If you listened to “Songs Of Armour And Devotion”, the new album from punk rock band Strung Out, you probably wouldn’t guess that the California band has been together for almost 30 years –such is the intensity and fresh energy of these 13 songs. Produced by Cameron Webb, who was behind the helm of 2009’s “Agents  Of  The Underground”, it’s a record that brims with the same ferocious fire the band had at the very start of its career when frontman  Jason  Cruz  was  still  a  teenager,  but  which  also  demonstrates  how  far  the  California  five-piece  have evolved as songwriters, musicians and people.

Since the debut release of “Vision” in 1993, Sweden’s premier hardcore pop-punkers No Fun At All have grown into a tight, intensive and frantic mean killing machine. Something which has been proven on hard-exercised tours all across the globe.  The band paved the way for  Swedish  punk  and  hardcore  while  being  hailed,  praised  and ‘adopted’ in Southern California –the #1 stronghold for melodic punk.
