The Melbourne rockers will bring the mighty Juveniles album to the city this June.
Having released their long-awaited third album Juveniles a year ago on the cusp of the pandemic as the world was turning on its head, Melbourne four-piece Kingswood will finally honour the record with a full-scale rock show this June.
The key takeaways
- Kingswood are set to perform one of their biggest shows to date with exclusive headline show at The Palais Theatre
- the band will perform the mighty JUVENILES album in full with a full-scale rock show
- Tickets are on sale now
Taking to the iconic Palais Theatre on Saturday, June 5, Kingswood is set to electrify audiences as they perform Juveniles in full, filling the venue with the defining guitar and drum-filled melodies from an album that represents a band at the peak of their creative strength.
Marking their first since 2017’s After Hours, Close To Dawn, and written and recorded across the US, UK and Europe, Juveniles encompasses the journey behind the album and sees the dynamic between chief songwriters Alex Laska and Fergus Linacre grow even stronger, with Laska referring to the record as ‘a showcase of the band’s maturing’.
“The album reflects a new level of comfort, confidence and ownership of our emotions and the lives we’re leading at the moment in the most accurate and creative way we have done in any of the albums,” Laska revealed.
“It’s more obviously a return to our love of rock and roll and particularly guitars. Guitars are the hero in certain passages and are featured, celebrated and romanticised,” he continues. “I definitely fell in love with rock and roll again.”
Having only played stripped-back gigs post-COVID since the album’s fateful March 2020 launch at The Corner, the exclusive show will see Kingswood at their very best, complete with their incredible energy, superb shredding skills, perfect grooves and rhythms, between-song conversation, and riffs filled with hair-whipping that we’ve come to know and love over the past few years.
“To be playing one of the biggest shows in the band’s history, at a venue that has been a bucket list headline dream, in a time where a worldly plague is causing so much chaos…feels like alchemy, feels wrong – the kind of wrong that you know is just so damned right,” Laska says.
“Taking place in the city we love, our city, Melbourne. The city that withstood, persevered and succeeded. The best city in the world. It will be the event of the year and so say all of us!”
The triumphant return of the band will be rounded out by the likes of support act Cry Club, Shannen James (solo) and Psychobabel, promising to be a gig for the books.
