We’re officially a matter of weeks away from the grand return of the Good Things festival, with its first edition in three years – hitting Melbourne on Friday December 2nd, then Sydney and Brisbane over the rest of the weekend – sporting its biggest and most insane lineup yet. Locked in to headline are Bring Me The Horizon and Deftones, with NOFX (performing 1994’s iconic Punk In Drublic) and TISM (performing for the first time in 19 years) billed right underneath. 

Perhaps the most exciting name on the poster, though, is one a little further down the list: Nova Twins. Unlike any live band you’ve ever seen, these fire-starting Londoners blend the energy of punk and the riffs of nu-metal with the attitude of hip-hop and the grit of drumstep, delivering an audio-visual assault you’re sure to have engraved into your memories for decades to come. Nova Twins’ sets at Good Things will be their first-ever in Australia, and they come hot on the heels of the band’s incendiary second album, Supernova.

Editor-at-Large, Australian Guitar Magazine

Ellie Robinson is an Australian writer, editor and dog enthusiast with a keen ear for pop-rock and a keen tongue for actual Pop Rocks.

Her go-to guitar is a Fender Player Tele, which, controversially, she only picked up after she'd joined the team at Australian Guitar. Before then, Ellie was a keyboardist – thankfully, the AG crew helped her see the light…
