Comadre the Californian punx are coming to Australia. They are spending their entire summer tromping all through Asia this includes a whole bunch of dates in Australia with Brisbane emo's Quiet Steps. Old mates of Australian regulars Graf Orlock/Dangers, this will be the first time they have headed "down-under" (fuck I hate that term). With a brand new split out with Glasses, they will be bringing the party our way for a bit of fun through July/August. If you are a fan of that sorta DIY chaotic singalong punk spinoff screamo good stuff you will definitely be plenty of time to have some serious fun at these shows. Supported at every show by Quiet Steps, who have recently brought out a new very long awaited LP, it will be great to see these songs pulled off live, because the recordings sound great, like a young Ben Lee.

Hank III, together with Electric Visual has produced a limited edition run of Electric Sunglasses called "Hellbilly Hellrazer". It includes custom laser etched glasses and limited edition custom designed glasses case. Available exclusively at selected Electric stores and at Hank III concerts.
As a massive Hank III fan I'm definitely tempted to buy these glasses but its hard to tell how they would look on you without trying them out so probably not worth the risk of importing them for my misshapen head.
Available at the Hank III website.
