Controlled? Yeah, nice. Broken? Good stuff. World View? Fuck yes, mate!
One of the finer local hardcore tours you’re bound to see this year was announced recently, featuring Controlled, Broken and World View, presented by Newcastle hardcore label Last Ride Records.
My personal favourite of this trio, Adelaide’s World View dropped a truly sick EP last year titled ‘Waking Up‘ that is most definitely worth your time. Sydney’s Controlled, who are headlining the tour, will be playing their first run of live shows in over six months and will be sure to crank tracks from that 2016 split with Primitive Blast. And as for the Melbourne locals in Broken, they have their solid, swinging 2016 release ‘Worldwide‘ to fall back on for this upcoming May tour.
This loud, hardcore travelling troubadour will be taking in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle next month, with the usual tour hotspot of Brisbane being given the “Perth treatment”. (Damn, that’s actually a pretty good term that I’m gonna use for future tour announcements that snob Brissy or other main East Coast cities.)
