German thrash tinged Melodic Skate Punk act Straightline are touring Australia for the very first time in March with Melbourne punks Blind Man Death Stare. Straightline recently released the excellent full length “Vanishing Values” through US label Bird Attack Records. The record is full of razor tight playing, melodic hooks, and a positive social message reminiscent of acts such as A Wilhelm Scream, Strike Anywhere and Municipal Waste.
Straightline have toured Europe, Japan and Latin America extensively and played massive festivals such as Groezrock, Punk Rock Holiday and Mighty Sounds. The infectious, melodic and insanely energetic live show from Straightline will be a rare treat for Australian audiences.
Blind Man Death Stare
Melbourne punk rockers Blind Man Death Stare (BMDS) have been on an unstoppable rampage since the release of their debut full length “It”ll Grow On Ya” through Arrest Records in July. The band recently completed a 40 date tour of Australia, NZ and Asia, taking in five countries in the space of 3 months.
Strip searches at customs, spiked drinks and a hunger for the chaos of the road seems to be par for the course at BMDS HQ, with the band showing no signs of slowing down. They are currently wrapping up yet another national tour with Guttermouth. The extensive 12 date tour kicks off in early March.
