31 years since they first broke out on a burgeoning Brisbane indie-rock scene, Screamfeeder are still one of the nation’s strongest, tightest and most venerable acts, and as they proved with last month’s Five Rooms album – their eighth in total, but first fully independent release – their ironclad songwriting prowess hasn’t flaked a bit. The band will be launching their new album live this Friday (June 10th), taking to the stage at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club for their first headlining gig in the city since April 2018.

Joining them will be the one and only Adalita, performing with her mononymous solo project. She and Screamfeeder go way back – Adalita, of course, cut her teeth in another of Australia’s god-tier ‘90s indie-rock acts,  Magic Dirt. The two bands have played countless shows and festivals together, and now, Adalita will switch it up by treating Screamfeeder fans to a set of her own sonic gold. Shortly after Friday’s show, Screamfeeder and Adalita will hit stages in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane – scroll right to the butt of this story for all the dates and ticket info.

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 bylines include music rag staples like NME, BLUNT, Mixdown and, of course, Australian Guitar (where she also serves as Editor-at-Large), but also less expected fare like TV Soap and Snowboarding Australia. 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…
