To celebrate the launch of their brutal new album Purge, out June 15 on Cooking Vinyl Australia, Melbourne’s High Tension have just announced that they will embark on a headline tour of Australia next month.
Purge is already being declared as their most fierce work yet – brimming with frustration, fear, and rage, and while tradition would suggest heavy acts only lose their intensity with each record, the opposite is true of High Tension. “This was always the direction we were heading into,” said vocalist Karina Utomo.
They’ll kicking off the tour in Hobart with a performance at Dark Mofo’s Night Mass, then play headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. High Tension will also play at Adelaide festival A Day Of Clarity.
The Tote, Melbourne – July 7.
