The band, known for their intense and unapologetic sound, expressed their excitement, stating, “It’s a dream come true to finally play the stages down under. It’s long overdue and we can’t wait to explore Australia and New Zealand!”

The tour promises to showcase Badflower’s alternative anthems, with iconic tracks like “Ghost” and “Heroin” echoing through the venues. Renowned for their fearless approach to music, Badflower doesn’t shy away from the uncomfortable; they put blood, sweat, and tears into everything they record.

Since their formation in Los Angeles in 2014, Badflower has been making waves in the rock scene. Their 2019 debut album, “OK, I’M SICK,” garnered widespread acclaim, earning a spot among the “50 Best Rock Albums of 2019” by Loudwire. With multiple tracks hitting No.1 on Rock Radio and appearances on the Late Late show with James Corden, the band has built a solid reputation, sharing the stage with heavyweights like Cage the Elephant, Ghost, and Soundgarden.

In 2020, Badflower made the move to Nashville to craft their highly anticipated sophomore album, “This Is How The World Ends.” Embracing a raw and spontaneous recording style, the album delves into dark themes, offering solace in a time of need. It stands as a testament to the band’s obsession with creating a legacy that outlives them.
