Aussie Punk Rockers The Hard-Ons Announce Two New Zealand Shows

Aussie Punk Rockers The Hard-Ons Announce Two New Zealand Shows

Thursday 23rd March, 2017 10:25AM

Long-standing Sydney punks The Hard-Ons are jumping the ditch for two shows in June. The group, which formed in 1981, has undergone many a incarnation over the years but the upcoming visit will see The Hard-Ons appearing as a four-piece with original vocalist/drummer Keish de Silva returning as the frontman. The band will be reaching deep into their back-catalogue for the shows, as well as trotting out some brand new material. Here are the details...

The Hard-Ons
with guests 
Illicit Wah-Wahz

Friday 23rd June, The Kings Arms, Auckland w/ Fire Shark + The Dirty Sweets
Saturday 24th June, The Yot Club, Raglan

Tickets available HERE at UTR and in-store at Flying Out on Pitt Street

Here's their clip for "Where Did She Come From', lifted from the 1990 record Yummy...

And here is 'Those Hard To Get Spots' from their 2014 album Peel Me Like An Egg...

From the Press Release:

Lowtide Rocks & Rockaway Beach present one of the Greatest punk bands of all time....

The Hard-Ons!!

With an enduring legacy that continues to gain momentum in the modern era, The Hard-Ons are coming to N.Z. for 2 shows only.

Tickets from Undertheradar and Flying Out (Auckland)


Still absolutely buoyant from their 30th anniversary tour AND the world-wide release of their best album-to-date “Peel Me Like A Egg”, Sydney’s colourful rocking identities THE HARD-ONS come bearing good news for music lovers and sports fans alike.

2017 will see the Hard-ons shrug off their recent misfortune, whereby their January 2016 tour of Japan was sadly aborted for health reasons, and hit the stage again. This time, the Hard-ons will be a FOUR-PIECE again, with original vocalist/drummer Keish de Silva permanently returning to the fold as frontman!

This explosive yet deeply melodic line-up of one of Australia’s most unique and action-packed rock and roll bands will perform a set bristling with both beauty and brutality, as they explore their vast back catalogue, and more importantly, introduce new material that has only just been hammered brilliantly into shape by this incarnation!

Every show promises to be a special affair, as the expanded, new, and revitalised Hard-ons flex their considerable and charismatic musical muscle: to sum up, nothing and everything has changed. Hard-ons: Very exciting as ever, but a little bit better.

These shows are not to be missed!
