The Boxer Rebellion are one of those bands that are quite big overseas yet their success hasn’t really caught on in Australia. Based in London, the band made history to become the first unsigned band to break into the Billboard top 100 albums charts with a digital only release, their second album Union.
Perhaps their lack of recognition of Australia will change with an upcoming tour, including a Purple Sneakers house party on NYE for all you Sydney people. The dates for the tour are:
Wed 30th December – PYRAMID ROCK FESTIVAL, Phillip Island
Thu 31st December – PURPLE SNEAKERS NYE HOUSE PARTY, Manning House, Sydney
Sat 2nd January – THE LAURIETON HOTEL, Laurieton w/ Philadelphia Grand Jury
Fri 8th January – SOUTHBOUND FESTIVAL, Perth
Tue 12th January – THE FORUM, Melboune w/ The Temper Trap
The Boxer Rebellion are also releasing their track Flashing Red Means Go as a single in Australia. It is a great atmospheric track and the lead singer pulls off some incredible falsetto vocals. Nice.
