Australian duo The Hard Aches are finally coming to the UK. “We’ve been itching to get over to the UK for shows for a long time but the timing couldn’t be more perfect right now,” enthuses vocalist and guitarist Ben David. “It’s been top of our “to tour” list for too long. We are so excited to be joining our best buds Muncie Girls on their album tour as well as getting to do a few special headline dates. We put a split 7” out with them last year and had them tour Australia with us. Couldn’t be more hyped to get back in the van with these three angels.” Those special headline shows run 5th-8th October, hitting up Newport, Leeds, Bristol and London. The Muncie Girls tour kicks off before that on 26th September. Full details on all dates below. Tickets available here.

The Hard Aches released their second album ‘Mess’ via Anchorhead Records earlier this year. It was made with the help of Melbourne producer Sam Johnson, who’s also worked with Camp Cope, and Georgia Maq from Camp Cope actually featured on the record too. She guests on the song ‘Happy’, which was added to full rotation on Triple J. Ben David says of the album “Mess is a collection of songs inspired by the people around us and the experiences we’ve all shared together or apart. Written with a focus on mental health in a hopeful and positive light, this album is sonically (and creatively) the best representation of us as a band. It’s the album we’ve been working towards creating through years of touring and making music.”

On top of this first jaunt to the UK, The Hard Aches will be headlining in Australia in Oct/Nov and they’ll be touring as main support to Frank Turner on his tour of Australia & New Zealand before the end of the year.
