Boss Tuneage is cock a hoop to announce THE HARD-ONS’ new studio album "!
The welcome return of Aussie legends THE HARD-ONS! “I’M SORRY SIR, THAT RIFFS BEEN TAKEN" is the bands latest album in a remarkable 37 year history! One of Australia’s most loved and influential bands from the mid- ‘80s through to now, the Hard-Ons came out of the multicultural South-West Sydney suburb Punchbowl and quickly won a large following nationally with their irreverent attitude and catchy, noisy high energy sound. Appearing on the Radio Birdman-influenced Sydney scene of the early ‘80s and preceding the punk-pop boom of the ‘90s, the Hard-Ons were a musical bridge and became a punk and alternative music sensation, blowing open doors by incorporating disparate elements - like a range of metal styles, from glam to thrash - which were previously unheard in Australian punk. All the while they were forced to push through other barriers; barriers that appeared because of their mixed ethnicity and their wilfully transgressive and irreverent nature, which was typified by their name, and by Ray’s outrageous artwork.
Now, the Australian legends combine with the introduction of YOU AND I’s Tim Rogers to the band as their new vocalist! Rogers, who recently celebrated his best chart debut in 20 years when You Am I's new album The Lives of Others landed at #2 in the Australian national charts, is not only a long-time friend of the band, but a long-time fan, having caught them numerous times in his teenage years and bought their records from the start. Never happy with less than a full plate, Rogers will of course remain with You Am I, and will no doubt keep doing all the other things he does, but as of now he is also the Hard-Ons' lead singer. Indeed, he has already written and recorded an album with them! ‘I'm Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken’ is the result and marks the start of a whole new exciting era for THE HARD-ONS!
