The Boxer Rebellion

November 20, 2009

The Boxer Rebellion is a band apparently blooming all over the world except here, which is a wonder, because there’s enough rolling and rumble in their music to stir up any crowd around. But it’s not really some crazy mosh pit affair. It’s a growing rising bubbling type of thing which is enunciated with an addition of an instrument as the track wears on. It bursts with an expression of semi supanova like status with the coo-ing backing vocals and sustained epic slightly apocalyptic guitar line. In the end it all comes to not having the faintest idea how bands like The Boxer Rebellion do it. They just do, and those tom drums are pretty integral to all that.

The band are touring down here over summer:
Wed 30th December – Pyramid Rock Festival, Phillip Island Vic
Thu 31st December – Purple Sneakers NYE House Party Manning House, Sydney NSW
Sat 2nd January – The Laurieton Hotel, Laurieton NSW w/ Philadelphia Grand Jury
Fri 8th January – Southbound Festival, Perth WA
Tue 12th January – The Forum, Melbourne, Vic w/ The Temper Trap
