El Alamein and Stockades National Tour – August 2012

Posted by Matt

Yay Skramz is back! Let's just preface this post with my bias that Stockades are one of the best bands going in Melbourne (especially since Agents of Abhorrence just lost their singer).

But also lets talk about Brisbane based skramz band El Alamein have just finishing recording their EP with Chris Brownbill. I'm going to assume they recorded this at Sun Distortion (same as Idylls, Palisade, Laeirs and most other bands who have released through Brissy label Monolith), it's getting mixed & mastered in Philadelphia by Joe Reinhart & Ryan Schwabe (Algernon Cadwallader, My Heart to Joy, Restorations). The EP will be coming out in August sometime, Hell Is Now Love is releasing it in New Zealand. Also touring with El Alamein is hype math kids Stockades, these guys are from the other end of Australia, hailing from West Fitzroy, ghetto as noodle rock experts. Stockades are helping revive the minor skramz resurgence over the last 6 months with the likes of Laeirs, Zita Grim etc. The tour starts in Radelaide on the 10th of August. Be there.10/8 – Adelaide
