Jungle Rot AUS & NZ Tour 2023 POSTPONED!

Jungle Rot Australian/New Zealand Tour 2023 POSTPONED

Jungle Rot and Your Mate Bookings have decided to put the debut tour of Australia and New Zealand planned for April 2023 on hold for the moment.

The sheer volume of tours, saturation in the market, the costs of flights and lack of funds the community has to spend on such a tour are the ultimate reasons for this tour to be put on hold for the time being.

JUNGLE ROT will return at a later date – we all need to be clear on that.

The flights were booked, the logistics and artwork are in place including the incredible support bands selected to make this tour one to remember.

We will be refunding all tickets immediately so there is no need to contact us.

Nembutolik will be holding these dates and launching their own tour very soon.

We apologise we had to cancel this tour and we understand you were all excited; but the band deserves huge crowds and appropriate compensation for finally visiting Australia/New Zealand after 30 years and we are going to ensure this happens as soon as possible – stay tuned for another announcement soon in regards to this.

Jack Harlon “Hail to the Underground” Tour 2023

Jack Harlon are heading back on tour for the next few months in support of the new album “Hail to the Underground”!

The band will play some headline events and will play support slots for Greek Stoner Rockers 1000mods as they hit the following cities: Perth (Debut), Wollongong, Sydney, Melbourne, Frankston (Flippin the Bird Festival) and Adelaide.

Formed in 2016, Jack Harlon & The Dead Crows are a psychedelic fuzz rock band from Melbourne, Australia, who incorporate elements of blues, stoner rock, folk and doom metal into their distinctive sound.
Much of their music follows the character of drug-addicted outlaw “Jack Harlon,” with songs that spin tales of desperation and survival in a fictitious western landscape.

In 2023 the band released their third studio album ‘Hail To The Underground’ – A fuzz-drenched, genre-crossing collection of renditions by Jack Harlon & The Dead Crows selected for their musical importance and personal meaning. Filtered heavily through the spaced-out psychedelia of Jack Harlon’s inimitable style, this collection includes songs originally written by lesser-known artists through a multitude of decades. 

Throughout their career Jack Harlon & The Dead Crows have toured and performed with the likes of Greenleaf, Sasquatch, Wo-Fat and WHORES.


15/2 La La Las, Wollongong (With 1000mods)

16/2 The Lansdowne, Sydney (With 1000mods)

24/2 The Corner Hotel, Melbourne (With 1000mods)

Progressive Rock Cult CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL headline WO FEST 2023 in Melbourne!

We are honoured to announce all the way from the UK, Progressive Psych Rock Gods Church of the Cosmic Skull as the headlining band for WO FEST 2023 at Evelyn Hotel Fitzroy, VIC Saturday 26th August!

Putting the Abba in Sabbath’ since 2016, the groups joyous blend of prog-psych-pop-rock with dark occult undercurrents has ignited hysteria and frenzy across the globe. In the words of Classic Rock Magazine: ‘the band’s mystical origins and white-robed stage attire carry all the trappings of an early-70s hippie sex cult, but their sound is rooted firmly in crunching classic-era arena rock.’

The line up for our annual festival includes an array of talented Australian artists including Grinding EyesSeedy Jeezus SONS OF ZÖKU Oceanlord Brown Spirits Frozen Planet 1969
