Touche Amore And Make Do And Mend Return
California hardcore/punk band Touche Amore bring to mind the balance of rage and melody that Revolution Summer-era DC bands Rites Of Spring and Ignition once carried.
Make Do And Mend's own brand of post-hardcore is as melodic as it is fierce, perfecting a sound to convince you that aggresive emotion and heartfelt honesty are not dead in punk music. Both touring Australia separately for the first time in 2011, both bands will be returning together this November.
They play The Reverence Hotel on Friday November 9 and the Phoenix Youth Centre on Friday November 10. Tickets on sale from Oztix on Friday August 17.
