UNI/VS from Brisbane formed in early 2017 and have rapidly established themselves as ones to watch in not just the Brisbane, but the Australian heavy scene. The Melodic Hardcore outfit are today announcing their "Smile" Australian tour - which celebrates their second EP "Smile", released in late 2018.
UNI/VS have decided to showcase their new EP in full whilst also playing some of their favourite older tracks on this, their first Australian tour. The Brisbane quartet are visiting Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Rockhampton on the 'Smile' Tour and bringing a virtual who's who of up and coming Australian hardcore and metalcore bands with them to throw down with.
Joining them is Sydney's Metalcore act Above, Below on all shows except Melbourne. Above, Below formed with the immediate mindset of setting themselves apart. With a constant focus on innovation and contrast within their progressive metalcore roots, the quintuplet released their debut EP The Sowers Of Discord in early 2017. Incorporating a multifaceted blend of heavy grooves, heavenly clean sections and crushing breakdowns, the group have done well to establish themselves amongst the scene. Releasing a brand new single at the end of 2018, they’re now looking ahead to arrange plans for their sophomore release in 2019.
Sydney's show on 15th March sees them supporting Sienna Skies at Factory Floor and playing alongside Resist The Thought & Bloom, Newcastle is the 16th March at the Hamilton Hotel withBloom, Melbourne's show is somewhat secret at the moment but will be announced VERY soon, Adelaide is 23rd March at Enigma Bar with Resist The Thought, Mauvais & Relapse in support, Brisbane is 5th April at Crowbar with Crave Death, Isolation and Affinity Minus Perfection, and they finish up the tour in Cattle Country in Rockhampton at O'Dowd's Irish Hotel with Affinity Minus Perfection and Wildheart on 6th April.
