THE HARD-ONS Announce First Tour With New Singer TIM ROGERS!

“The Hard-Ons were and still are amazing” – Warren Ellis (Dirty Three/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

“(The Hard-Ons) should be in the ARIA Hall of Fame!” – Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus)

“The Hard-Ons are trailblazers!”
– Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys)

Following the fantastic response to new single Lite As A Feather and its predecessor Hold Tight, and amid the great anticipation for their new album ‘I’m Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken’ –  their first with new singer Tim Rogers – Australia’s punk legends The Hard-Ons have announced their first tour with their new line-up.

Whilst the announcement last month of Rogers’ recruitment was met with excitement, bemusement and yes the inevitable few grumbles from old fans, the new line-up is not going to give fans anything to complain about. 

Both new singles suggest the band is in magical form; in fact the magic comes at least in part from the fact that Tim Rogers is one of the band’s biggest fans. As he recently told Blunt:“I’m a fan first and foremost. [They were] the first band I loved that I could see, the first band I got my nose broken to, [and the first band] I lost my hearing to. There are so many firsts. And then to be in the rehearsal room… I looked over at Blackie’s amp and went, ‘Oh, that’s the amp.’ And I saw the SG, and I was like, ‘That’s the SG.’ I’ve been watching him play with those since 1986.”
