Unsane (US) Canberra
September 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
NY based pioneers of American Noise Rock “UNSANE” will make their way down under to Australia in September 2023.
Forming in 1988, the trio created a relentless brand of Rock with their well versed influences of the Hardcore, Punk and Metal genres.
Unsane quickly became a mainstay in New York noise & heavy music scenes. Originating from New York scumrock scene, while still pushing their unique “extreme” sound, Unsane’s relentless, non-stop touring established them as an important part of the Lower East side New York City music scene of the late 80s and still to this present day.
As a power trio, UNSANE relied upon a hammering, power-press rhythm section, a searing Telecaster howl, and distorted vocals that resembled a chainsaw cutting a steel beam.
The early days of UNSANE began in the late ’80s under the original incarnation of the band — Chris Spencer, Pete Shore (bass), and Charles Ondras (drums) — crawled larvally out of the practice space in 1989 and began playing New York’s seediest haunts. It was these graveyard slots at clubs like CBGB’s where the band developed and honed their trademark sound and delivered the goods with due intensity and volume.
Present line up; Chris Spencer (vocals, guitar), Dave Curran (bass, vocals) and Vincent Signorelli (drums) are responsible for well over two decades of aural ruination, with no intention of letting up anytime soon. With reissues of all albums in the bag, the band will be touring the Australia and New Zealand in Spring 2023.
In collaboration with Australia’s own Disdain Records (https://www.disdain-records.com), an extremely limited edition special colour vinyl version for each will be manufactured for Australia only and made available exclusively at these shows and via Disdain mail-order outlets only.
