We expected Refused to sell out their Australian Tour. Tuesday 24 January at Prince Of Wales with Refused, Sick Of It All and High Tension has officially sold out. The band has agreed to perform a second and definitely final Melbourne show on Wednesday 25 January (Australia Day Eve) at Prince Of Wales. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 11 October, 9am AEDT.
Legendary Swedish hardcore punks, Refused will return to Australia in January 2017 along with hardcore icons Sick Of It All (celebrating their 30th anniversary) and High Tension!
In 1998 a boundary exploding album was released that has since been elevated to all-time legendary status…’The Shape Of Punk To Come’. Their iconic status grew exponentially in the ensuing years, the band casting a giant shadow over the world of underground rock as they post-humously influenced a new generation of musical revolutionaries.
Refused reformed 14 years later in 2012 to a slew of sold out dates across the globe (including Australia) and this led to the release of their first new album in 17 years and titled Freedom in June 2015. Freedom, which debuted No.10 on the ARIA charts, explodes with opening track Elektra, as front man Dennis Lyxzen’s throat-shredding declaration that “nothing has changed” catapulted Refused into the 21st century.
“It’s not a reunion anymore,” Lyxzen insists. “This is one of the most radical things we’ve ever done, both musically and lyrically.” “A thrilling, challenging, life-affirming rollercoaster of a record”. Kerrang
