Foals Bloc Party & The Maccabees Announce Side Shows

Arguably the biggest names appearing at Falls & Southbound Festivals, UK bands Foals, Bloc Party, and The Maccabees have all announced January headline shows.

Foals were Down Under only a few months ago promoting their latest album "What Went Down". The album has since been released and received plenty of praise from both Foals loyalists and new fans of the epic indie-rock group.

They’ve also cemented their place as one of the most talented live acts in the world with huge sets at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.

It will be the first time Bloc Party play in Australia since their substantial lineup change, which saw the departure of founding drummer Matt Tong and bassist Gordan Moakes.

The new-look Bloc Party has reportedly finished recording their highly anticipated fifth album, who have been teasing new music since May and just recently ‘tested’ new material at a couple of intimate shows in the US.

The Maccabees will hit our shores on a career high after the release of their remarkable fourth studio album “Marks To Prove It”, the follow up to 2012’s Mercury Prize-nominated “Given To The Wild”.

The new album is fuelled by a newfound confidence and infused with emotion by the addition of female vocals, adding another layer of depth to The Maccabees’ already elaborate sound.  

Their performance at Glastonbury back in June was nothing short of sensational, with fellow countryman Jamie T joining the band on-stage for guitar and backing-vocal support for the album’s title track. 

It will be the five-piece’s second visit to Australia, the first being at 2012’s Groovin The Moo Festival.
