Didn't catch them on their recent reformation tour in support of Propagandhi? Well good news, because raging Newcastle hardcore punkers Conation are pulling themselves together one last time for a semi-national tour! Chances are this is the last time you are ever going to see these guys (though you may have heard that one before).
They've also got a new release coming out called "The Clouds Are Gathering" on Poison City Records. The EP was originally recorded almost 4 years ago. Since reforming for the Propagandhi tour, the group has made it back into the studio in short bursts to finally complete this long-awaited released. Poison City Records claims that this is the 'essential posthumous chapter from one of Australia's most important socio-political punk bands'.
Here's the tour listing, baby:
