News: Tasmanian band, Legal Noise plan short Australian tour on back of announcement of debut album and launch gig

Hobart garage-psych rockers, Legal Noise, have announced their self-produced debut long-player, and will be giving it its’ first full airing at a special album launch at Hobart’s Simple Cider on Friday, 15th September. A massive nine band lineup, will join Legal Noise to start the party from 5.00 PM and long into the night.

The album sees the band, known for their raucous, crowd-pleasing live performances, translate that raw energy into an eclectic mix of modern psychedelic rock. The eight songs on the album provide some fast and furious moments such as the head-banging opener, Bloodstains with its’ sing-along chorus and Slave, the ode to the drudgery of a previous job. Some classical echo-laden moments fill the middle songs of the album culminating in the fuzz and feedback of Dracula, while the back end moves through to some heavy riffing songs such as Time and the album closer, Try To Hide, an 11.00 minute epic.

Legal Noise make no bones about their influences, with a large nod to the Gibson SG-led guitar riffage of Black Sabbath mixed in with the current-day psychedelic smarts of US band Frankie & The Witch Fingers and the eclectic (and prolific) sway of Australia’s own King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard all being evident in their song-writing.

The band are all set to take to the road to promote the album with a two week tour that begins in Launceston, then takes them to mainland Australia with shows in Melbourne, Ballarat, Adelaide, Wollongong, Sydney and Newcastle. Support will be from fellow Tasmanian rockers, Guru Mook.

The album will be available for purchase at the launch on Friday, and from Legal Noise’s Bandcamp page from Saturday (16.09.2023).
