Billy Talent tour Australia this August

With a new album set for release very soon, Canadian punks Billy Talent have announced that they’re coming back to Australia for their first visit since Soundwave 2009.

Back on that 2009 tour the FL reviewer who caught the band at Soundwave in Brisbane reported that “those who stayed on to witness Billy Talent did not leave disappointed as the Canadian quartet got the crowd jumping and moving in a flurry of arms and torsos from the get-go…. a very powerful and tight performance.”

The as yet unnamed album (no prizes for guessing it’ll be called Billy Talent IIII ) is lead by the aggressive first single Viking Death March.

Billy Talent tour:

Thursday 9th August – Brisbane, The Hi-Fi (18+)

Friday 10th August – Sydney, Unsw Roundhouse (Lic AA)

Sunday 12th August – Melbourne, Billboard (18+)

Tickets on sale Friday 1st June
