Japanese band The Dead Vikings announce Australia tour

The Dead Vikings return to claim their stake and expand their domination over Sydney come September with a lineup that can only be viewed as the ultimate heavy protopunk this town has seen in years.

Going back to where it all began, these guys from Japan kick off their four day invasion on the Northern Beaches at The Old Manly Boatshed with locals Tshatki and 4 Barrel hemi. Day 2 sees a foray in to new territory via Paddington’s Captain Cook Hotel sharing the helm with goth rockers RK Ally, Black Knuckles and Black Heart Breakers.

Day 3 a return to iconic inner west venue The Townie, will have Shogo, Kensuke, Hiro and Bone thrashing it with Eightball Junkies and BUNT. Day 4 peaks at the empyrean of Sunday venues, Frankie’s Pizza, with Stu G’s Cloak & Dagger kicking off The Deadvikings most prodigious final night. Cosmic sludge monarchs Lord Dodongo will be elevating this penultimate gig alongside US trio BOYTOY who are also making their Aussie debut.

When asked about their returning the band told us “We are stoked to be returning to Sydney. You made us all feel incredibly welcomed last year and we were totally blown away by how big a turn out there was at each of our gigs. Super keen to catching up with old friends and playing alongside some of the bands we played with last time and share the stage with the new line-ups! Some awesome bands have joined us for next month. We will get down and dirty at each venue, with all of you. We love Australia!”

A limited selection of merch including tees and their cd Eletric Demon (released on Zodiac Killer Records, an infused slab with influences from Hellacopters to MC5) will be available.

Minimal fuss, maximum exposure. Get wet, get down. It’s time to get unhinged with the Vikings.
