The Hard-Ons Announce National Headline Tour, New Album “So I Could Have Them Destroyed” & share single “Harder & Harder”
The Hard-Ons are back with their rampaging 12th studio album “So I Could Have Them Destroyed” which is released on Friday 11th October via Music Farmers. Today, they deliver the first taste of the album by dropping new single “Harder And Harder”.
Clocking in at a concise 30 minutes through 12 tracks, “So I Could Have Them Destroyed” is a wild but focused memorandum of the current incarnation of the Hard-Ons. Original founding member Keish is welcomed back into the fold, joining drummer Murray and co-founders Ray and Blackie.
“So I Could Have Them Destroyed” sees the Hard-Ons distilling their best musical traits. Brutal velocity. Rampaging guitars. Throbbing rhythms. Beautiful harmonised vocals. Here are 12 electrifying reasons why some artists get better with age. Good to see Hard-Ons sticking to their tried-and-true dogma: NO FAT – JUST MUSCLE.
Remarkably “So I Could Have Them Destroyed” does not sound like any other Hard-Ons release. It straddles the sweet spot between their treacherous and chaos-laden free-for-all approach and the diamond-hard solidity their beautiful melodies crave and deserve.
Producer and long-time friend of the band Lachlan Mitchell has thankfully managed to clear any unnecessary musical clutter and has harnessed sheer power and melody resulting in a crystal clear documentation. Brilliantly highlighted is the band’s incredible song-craft and musicianship, that has been cultivated and developed over a ridiculously energised career that started back in 1982.
The pulsating, super-charged bare-chested glory that is the Hard-Ons has now been given an extra dimension with the return of Keish. Here comes the pigeon-hole busting punk-metal-powerpop release of the year.
