British iconic punk and new wave rockers, The Stranglers, have announced they’ll be touring Australia, playing shows across five cities in April 2023.

First forming in 1974, the band’s no-bullshit attitude saw the band blaze an experimental trail, from art rock to goth to new wave pop, inspiring a wave of prog rock guitar players and confrontational vocalists to find their roots in The Stranglers’ unabashed confidence.

Promising a set that will be covering tracks from their extensive catalogue spanning over 45 years, fans can expect to hear timeless hits like ‘Golden Brown’, ‘Always the Sun’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘Strange Little Girl’ and ‘Peaches’.
