Bad Bangs announce Geelong and Ballarat tour dates for the launch of their debut album

Melbourne garage-rockers Bad Bangs celebrate the launch of their debut album Character Building with a rescheduled regional Victorian tour.

Originally scheduled for January this year, the rescheduled dates will see Bad Bangs joined in Geelong by beloved local dream-pop power band Sirens and a surprise mystery guest. The Ballarat support will be from the formidable Robot Fox Jams (a very special solo performance from the man himself) and red hot Ballarat royalty Grove!

Released back in September 2021, Character Building embodies the quartet’s penchant for nuanced garage rock – a journey through scuzzed-out tones, clattering rhythms and tender, introspective lyricism.

Recorded by John Lee at Phaedra Studios in Coburg, the foursome unabashedly toes the line between sophistication and total chaos with their debut, the follow-up to their 2019 singles ‘Too Much’ and ‘Crush’ and their impressive first EP, Grow It Out in 2018.

With nods to the likes of The Murlocs, Cate Le Bon and Ty Segall, Character Building is the foursome’s sunny take on the rock of the garage persuasion and is not to be missed in the flesh this May.
