The Hard Aches + Happy Accidents + Support TBA at The Hope and Ruin.
The Hard Aches
Punk-rock duo from Adelaide, Australia, consisting of guitarist/singer Ben David and drummer Alex Upton.
"Their live shows are just pure fun, nothing else. David isn’t so much singing as he is recounting stories to us – always honest, brutal, shattering and upliftingly optimistic – through the endearing medium of catchy rock and roll, and it’s this kind of intimacy that gives the Aussie group so much of its charm and energy" - Kill Your Stereo
"Relentless touring has managed to establish The Hard Aches a rabid, dedicated fanbase, many of whom are now deciding which of their favourite lyrics will form the basis of their next tattoo" - Musicinsight.com
Formed by brothers Rich and Neil Mandell and Phoebe Cross back in 2014, Happy Accidents craft the kind of earworms that will be rattling round your head for months to come – fusing their deep-seated love of 90s punk and indie, whilst still managing to sound as fresh as any of their contemporaries.
Quickly making a name for themselves in DIY punk circles, they’ve captured the attention of fans and peers alike with with their unique pairing of introspective lyrics with the biggest hooks they can muster.
