THUNDAMENTALS New Album ‘ALL THIS LIFE’ Out Now – 2023 National Tour Confirmed, With Special Guest HORRORSHOW

Thundamentals have released their highly anticipated sixth studio album All This Life, featuring singles Top Of The World and Lifted Up, and are pumped to announce a national tour for January and February 2023.  

With over a decade in the game, Thundamentals’ journey has been one of triumph and growth. From selling out shows in all corners of the country racking up millions of streams worldwide and landing multiple platinum and gold singles, Tuka, Jeswon and Morgs have consistently pushed Thundamentals to new heights, standing tall as one of the most notable names in homegrown hip-hop.

The band has just announced that founding member Tuka, whilst still an integral member of the band, won’t be part of Thundas’ All This Life national tour and in a move that has the full support of fellow band members Jesse and Morgs, will focus his energy on his songwriting and personal / family life.  

In exciting news for the tour, Thundas will be joined and supported by special guest and lead vocalist of Horrorshow, Solo – he will be joining the Thundamentals set for these very special shows!

Like so many of us, Thundamentals went through an immense period of growth during the global pandemic. An uncertain future was lingering, and the group were unable to connect with fans at live shows as they had done so frequently throughout their career. Forced to reconsider their approach, they began to write constantly—at times, in person and at others virtually. At first, there was no particular goal in mind beyond pure escapism and maintaining a connection, but as the months went on the realisation set in that regardless of the physical limitations, there was still a lot of life happening.

Thundamentals’ sixth album All This Life came about from these conversations. The project represents a rise against adversity and a celebration of the goodness in life. Acting as a beacon of light in dark times, All This Life aims to leave listeners with a sense of hope and uplift them in times of uncertainty.

Sonically, the album could be considered a fresh direction for Thundamentals, but it’s one they took organically. Having been thrust into new circumstances with a newfound appreciation for life and creating also led to inspiration being drawn from childhood favourites from outside of their traditionally hip hop roots—iconic ‘60s rock idols like David Bowie and The Doors to the raw expression of ‘90s bands like Nirvana and Faith No More laid the foundations for an album that mixes nostalgic sounds with modern techniques while still incorporating the group’s origins in hip hop and R&B culture.

The final piece of the puzzle was collaborator Carl Dimataga, who brought his expert musicianship to the project. All This Life is a rose growing from concrete. A joyful, vibrant and uplifting body of work forged in darkness yet drenched in light. It represents not only a celebration of life itself but also the band’s position this far into their career. It’s a declaration: “We are still standing, and we have so much love and life still left to give.”

Jesse and Morgs, ably assisted by Solo from Horrorshow, will hit the road from January 13, 2023 in Cairns, before heading to Brisbane, Adelaide, Fremantle, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne, Torquay, and Newcastle, before concluding in Sydney on February 18. Audiences can look forward to hearing these new songs live for the first time, along with all the killer tunes from across the band’s lengthy career.

YUNG GRAVY Touring Australia February 2023

Secret Sounds and Live Nation are thrilled to announce that multiplatinum hip-hop phenomenon Yung Gravy will be touring Australia in 2023, arriving down under hot off the release of his new album Marvelous. The wildly anticipated tour will see Gravy bring the ruckus to venues across the country with shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne throughout February 2023.

Yung Gravy dropped Marvelous on 28 October via Republic Records. The album was accompanied by his new music video for single ‘Dancing In The Rain’ and ushers in Gravy’s biggest, boldest and best era yet – and we get to see it live!

Yung Gravy released the record’s lead single Betty (Get Money)’ in June 2022, popping off as a generation bridging banger as it reignites the classic chorus (and iconic synths) of Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. Produced by Dillon Francis, Dwilly, and Popnick, the track has already gone Gold in the United States and Canada, in addition to generating over 200 million global streams.  

Betty (Get Money)’ notably broke out as Yung Gravy’s first Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs Chart and leapt into the Top 30 of the Hot 100, ticking off another first for the rapper. Dominating airwaves both in the US and Australia, the single led to Yung Gravy making his late-night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a performance slot at MTV’s VMAs pre-show.

Alongside these massive releases, Yung Gravy has accelerated his meteoric rise this year with a co-headline tour of the states with Dillon Francis, an opening slot on Limp Bizkit’s arena tour and a series of RIAA certified platinum and gold bangers including: platinum ‘Mr. Clean’, platinum ‘1 Thot 2 Thot Red Thot Blue Thot’,  gold ‘oops!!!’ gold ‘Magic’, gold ‘Whip A Tesla’ and ‘Welcome to Chilis’ with bbno$.

Yung Gravy is currently on a 29-city, co-headline tour of North America with bbno$ through December, before reaching Australian shores in February. Jump on the gravy train and get tickets quick when they go on sale from 10am local Friday 11 November!

AURORA Announces THE GODS WE CAN TOUCH Australian Tour 2023

Secret Sounds is thrilled to announce that powerful Norwegian alternative pop songstress AURORA is returning to Australia, bringing her powerful live performance to stunning venues across the East Coast including Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall, Sydney Opera House and Palais Theatre, Melbourne throughout March 2023. The highly anticipated dates will see the enchanting artist grace Australian stages with a host of new songs from her critically acclaimed 2022 album, The Gods We Can Touch.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2015 with her debut EP, Running With The Wolves, AURORA has amassed over 20 million monthly listeners on Spotify, an incredible 2.6 billion overall streams and 1 million+ global album sales. This all started near Bergen, Norway where Aurora Aksnes grew up surrounded by forests and mountains, she was just six years old when she first felt the compulsion to sit alone and create. By the time she was twelve she had written ‘Runaway’, a song that would later receive a full release and would inspire a twelve year old Billie Eilish to make her own music. The song catapulted into the Top 40 Singles Chart in the UK for the first time in 2021, six years after its release and fourteen years after it was first penned, it also peaked in the Spotify Global Top 20 thanks to an unexpected TikTok trend that saw the track reach a whole new global audience, clocking up 300 million views a day.
A triple threat, AURORA is renowned for her talents as a singer, songwriter and producer. From performing her contribution to Frozen 2’s pivotal track ‘Into The Unknown’ at the 2020 Oscars, playing Coachella and Lollapalooza to appearing all across US talk shows and featuring on millions of TikToks, AURORA has a diverse legion of fans that admire her multifaceted artistry including peers Troye Sivan, Doja Cat, Katy Perry, Shawn Mendes and the aforementioned Billie Eilish.
Having grown up surrounded by nature, AURORA’s first three albums focused on issues like global capitalism, the environmental crisis and what it means to be human amid it all. She has worked with the UN’s CHOOSE programme to lessen her environmental footprint, converting the amount of harmful gases she uses as a touring artist into electricity in Thailand. Through her stark, angular pop AURORA has debated with herself and urged fans to stand up for themselves and each other, while giving us mantras to chant like “you cannot eat money”. Her most recent record The Gods We Can Touch turns that piercing gaze inward, sharing her inner self for the first time.
Released in January 2022, The Gods We Can Touch saw AURORA score her first UK Top 10, landing at #8 on the Official UK Album Chart. Inspired by Greek mythology, the euphoric record was the third most streamed new album in the world on Spotify the weekend of its release. The Gods We Can Touch finds AURORA reunited with long term producer Magnus Skylstad, and a carefully-curated cast of collaborators: guitarist Fredrik Svabø, Askjell Solstrand on piano, French singer songwriter Pomme and renowned bandoneon player Per Arne Glorvigen. It sounds like an album that was made in a castle, and that’s because it was. AURORA chose to record much of the record in Barony Rosendal, a structure surrounded by mountains, resulting in a body of work that is elegant but provocative as it explores the concepts of shame, desire and morality.
Single from the record, ‘The Woman I Am’ garnered great success on the airwaves in the UK. It was included as BBC’s Radio 1’s coveted Hottest Record, Tune Of The Week and AURORA’s Piano Sessions, where she covered Harry Styles’ ‘Golden’ and performed her own track ‘A Temporary High’, became the most viewed of the past year in just one week. The song also picked up countless plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2. AURORA followed this with sensual track ‘The Devil Is Human’, previously only available on the vinyl version of The Gods We Can Touch. Her most recent single, the dreamy and heartfelt ‘A Potion For Love’ was released in July 2022.
AURORA headlined Norway’s Øya Festival in August 2022, alongside Florence + The Machine, Gorillaz and more; she stunned a crowd of 20,000 people as she joined the star studded lineup of London’s BST Hyde Park in July and has been dominating stages across the US on her headline tour. April saw AURORA complete a sold out Spring UK tour where she played a packed 02 Brixton Academy in front of over 5,000 adoring fans. Not long after this she won a highly-regarded Spellemann Award (Norway’s version of the GRAMMYs) for International Success Of The Year. No doubt she will be ready to stun with her ethereal stage presence when she graces Australian shores in 2023.
