Tasmania’s punk rock devils Luca Brasi are set to unleash their second album By A Thread next March with an Australian east coast tour.
Since forming in 2009, the four-piece have raided venues with their visceral live shows, pedalling riff-drenched punk rock with a fervour that scored them spot in triple j’s Short Fast Loud midyear report. The release of 7″ Tassie, the follow-up to 2011’s blazing Extended Family, saw a more realised sound that cemented Luca Brasi’s place in Australian punk.
The band’s latest effort melds vocalist Tyler Richardson’s lyrical mastery with Tom Busby’s signature guitar dexterity, pulsing with a youthful charm and mixed by production kahuna Matt Bayles, who has lent his hand to Pearl Jam, Murder City and Isis.
Luca Brasi are set to premiere tracks from their new album, including explosive lead single ‘Borders and Statelines’, at Hermann’s Bar on Saturday March 15 and Beatdisc Records (all ages) on Sunday March 16. Support from Postblue.
