Triple J Unearthed have announced the winners of their yearly St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival competition which gives one lucky act the opportunity to play the opening slot in each city. Joining past Adelaide winners Bad//Dreems and Sparkspitter, the 2016 winners of the Adelaide leg of the tour is talented punk-rock group The Hard Aches. These punk rockers have had a huge year as they released their debut album, Pheromones, came #14 in Triple J Unearthed ‘Top 50 Played Artists in 2015,’ toured with The Bennies and Wet Pensioner and just released a headlining tour for early next year. The Hard Aches are guaranteed to deliver a highly chaotic and energetic live show, so go and memorize all their lyrics so you can join in with all the wild shenanigans.
The Hard Aches will be joining an amazing line-up with international acts like Chvrches, Grimes, FIDLAR among local acts like Violent Soho, Flume and Hermitude. Triple J have also announced that they will be heading to our little ol’ town for a live broadcast of the Adelaide leg of the tour which also happens to be the first stop on the Australian tour. So not only will The Hard Aches be opening Adelaide’s edition of Laneway but also the entire Australian Laneway tour. Congrats guys!
You can also catch The Hard Aches on December 11th with Bad//Dreems at Fat Controller or January 22nd for their headline tour at Crown and Anchor.
