Boston (OC45) and New York (The Jukebox Romantics) are teaming up together to bring you some of the finest upcoming Punkrock packages in a while. Both bands have been friends for years and we thought it was a good idea so send them on the road together in Europe.
OC45 are one of the most promising Punkrockbands coming out of Boston in a while. With the the spirit and heart of Bands like the Street Dogs, Far From Finshed, Darkbuster or the Have Nots, Oc45 are working really hard, to fill the shows of those great bands.

to name a few. They are working on their brand new full length "Happy Accidents" that will be coming out before the Europeantour.
The Jukebox Romantics are bringing their heartfelt Punkrock from New York also to Europe for the first time. The band has been around since 2009 and made a name for themselves from the beginning by hitting the road hard, endless touring (including stops at THE FEST and Vans Warped Tour), and their ferocious energetic live show. By conveying heart, and leaving their sweat and souls out on stage at every show, hey remind you to have fun through music & friends and to never grow up!"
Their latest release ,the 7 inch "Plot Points" & "Transmissions Down" were produced by Pete from the Bouncing Souls.

The Masonics with Ludella Black (UK) / Jonah Gold & His Siver Apples (D)
MICK 'THE MILK' HAMPSHIRE: singing & 6-string guitar
BRUCE 'BASH' BRAND: traps & backing vocals
JOHN 'LARDY' GIBBS: bottom guitar & backing vocals
(with thanks to former bass-jockeys: Johnny Barker, Johnny Johnson & Liam Watson)
Having attended the same secret lodge - the Omnipotent Order of Eccentric Rapscallions (OOER) - together for 25-odd years, our three heroes were united in their cause when they were elected to search the UK for a sacrificial virgin to be deflowered at the sacred Dodecacentenial Orgy (or 'DO' for short).
A 16-year search - during which Micky was mistakenly assumed to be missing, presumed unable to take the pace - yielded nothing. In short, they had no joy, neither on their home turf nor during a brief sojourn to western Europe. (Hence their anticipated presence in the Promised Land).
To lure their prey they hit on the ingenious plan of disguising themselves as a musical 'rock-group' (presently very popular among young folk we are led to believe).
Therefore, we urge all parents, siblings, friends, acquaintances and cohorts of any known (or not) unblemished no-tails, (irrespective of age, race, creed, cooking-ability etc.) to attend the soon to be announced Masonic gatherings, accompanied by same.
Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Ludella Black was an original member of legendary Medway garage band The Del-Monas, after that she became a Headcoatee along with her friends Holly Golightly, Kyra Rubella and ‘Bongo’ Debbie.
Since the demise of Thee Headcoatees in 1999 she has released three solo albums (two on Damaged Goods 2000’s ‘She’s Out There’) and plays live with The Masonics regularly and appeared on loads of singles and albums with them too.

Jonah Gold & His Siver Apples
Clowns (AUS) / Slam Harder (D)
In 2015 Clowns have unsolicitedly carved their name into the walls of the Australian punk rock hall of fame. The success of their most recent full length Bad Blood has seen them smash sold out shows and festivals nation wide, appear at the 2015 SxSW festival, become the first ever Australian act to (dis)grace the prestigious Riot Fest line up in Chicago and achieve high rotation on national radio stations and bedroom record players alike.
Combining a vicious base layer of punishing punk rock combined with influences that range from 77’ punk, to underground Australian rock, as well as thrash, doom, noise and powerpop all loaded with chaos, energy and fun. Clowns really know no boundaries in regards to leaving punters stoked that they left their couches and came out to see them at a show.
With two full length LP’s under their belt including 2013’s “I’m Not Right” which ranked in at number 5 of national radio’s ”Short Fast Loud’ top 40 releases of 2013, as well as the already highly acclaimed follow up LP ”Bad Blood” released in early 2015, Clowns are heavily equipped with the right credentials to back up their impressive live show. Both of these records are out on highly esteemed Australian label “Poison City Records”, which the band have a strong and proud working relationship with, as well as having North American distribution through “No Idea Records” in USA.
With over 300 shows since the bands inception, shedding the lifeblood of Melbourne hardcore punk across South-East Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and just recently USA; not to mention appearances at SXSW in Texas, MIDI Festival in China and many wild Australian East Coast shows, it’s safe to say that Clowns have a strong thirst for being on the road.
Slam Harder aus Hannover spielen thrashigen Hardcore-Punk irgendwo zwischen Trash Talk und den Cro-Mags. Gegründet haben sie sich Ende 2015. Ihre Demo, veröffentlicht im April des Folgejahres, wurde auf den vielen folgenden Shows gegen Spende unters Volk gebracht und 2016 vom Away From Life Magazin zur Demo des Jahres gekürt. Im März wird die Band Ihre neue EP aufnehmen.

Bob Wayne (USA) / Louderdales (D)
The last few years have been nothing, but the usual wild ride for BOB WAYNE with numerous shows throughout Europe, North America and Brazil that didn’t just have him play festivals such as Ramblin’ Man Fair (UK), Speedfest (NL), or even the legendary Wacken Open Air (DE), but also saw him supporting The BossHoss on sold out arena shows in Germany in 2016.
After releasing “Hits The Hits”, an album with cover versions of some of the world’s biggest hits, the singer, songwriter, storyteller and nomad is back to telling his own stories on his new album “Bad Hombre“ some of which drew influences from meeting people while he is doing what means the most to him: Being out on the road, traveling to distant places, going to many remote little towns and villages throughout the world, playing live and meeting the most diverse people.
So saddle up your horses, folks, and get ready for another good ride with BOB WAYNE through 2017 as the “Bad Hombre” hits the road! YEEEEHAW!
Based in Aachen/Germany, Louderdales started out in 2009 as a bunch of friends not knowing where the road might lead to. Influenced by almost any guitar driven music from the past 60 years, they got hooked on Americana & alt. Country music. Spiced with Morricone-like Guitar scraps and a dash of old fashioned Rock'n'Roll, the striking honky-tonky voice of lead singer Joe tells stories from the world of Outlaws and failed lives.
As every bandmate is around in the music scene for many years, hitting european and worldwide stages with bands like The Bloodstrings, Cave 4, Pigheaded and Ray Collins’ Hot Club, Louderdales are always prepared to saddle their horses and burn down your barn!
Since 2010, Louderdales shared the stage with Americana & Country acts like Bob Wayne, Chip Hanna and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs.
2011, Louderdales laid down 13 tracks that have been released as CD/LP titled "Songs of No Return" on Crazy Love Records in early 2012.
In 2016, the recordings for the 2nd album got finished. The album contains 13 songs and will be released in autumn 2017!

Mammoth Mammoth (AUS) / Riff Fist (AUS)
MAMMOTH MAMMOTH return to Europe to deliver another powerful addition to their list of prior heavy rock convictions. Over the course of their 10 year career, MAMMOTH MAMMOTH have left a stamp on the music scene proving to be one of Australia’s hardest and heaviest rock exports.The band are well documented for their high octane, unpredictable live shows, fronted by the dynamic yet uninhibited vocalist Mikey Tucker. They’ll be storming down a highway near you soon for their Mount The Mountain Tour which kicks off in April.
Formed in June 2011 with the sole purpose of making your head bang, arse shake and ears bleed, Riff Fist spent their first 18 months introducing Melbourne's live music audience to the way of the Fist. In December 2012, the band organised the first Riffmas event, a mini festival celebrating the local "doom metal" scene, which has since become an annual tradition.
Riff Fist unleashed their much anticipated debut EP Fistful of Riffs in 2013, which was well received by punters and critics alike. The trio went on to produce a limited edition 7" vinyl single For A Few Riffs More the following year.
In 2015, the group completed their "Western trilogy" with the release of The Good, The Loud and The Riff. Riff Fist went on to tour Europe, including a performance at Desertfest in Berlin.
