Punk-rock legends The Hard-Ons with new frontman Tim Rogers and their just released 13th studio album ‘I’m Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken’, which is sitting at #1 on ARIA mid-week charts.
With this year marking the 40th anniversary of the band, The Hard-Ons continue to be one of Australia’s most influential acts (of any genre); who else can claim Dave Grohl, Henry Rollins, and Jello Biafra as vocal supporters, appearances at multiple Big Day Outs, and shared bills with the likes of the Ramones and Nirvana?
Kicking off in 2022, UNCAGED is a new rock festival experience with a diversely curated line up of hard rock, punk, metal and more.
On the festival, Silverback Touring’s Danny Bazzi says, “We are all so excited to break free from lockdowns and the pressures of the last two years. Now is the time to get out and enjoy live music in a festival setting with some legends of Australian music and a whole bunch of amazing up and comers. No matter what your flavour, there is something here for everyone to enjoy and to discover, all with some big festival vibes. This is the rock festival for rock fans, by rock fans”.
