The Last Australian Tour
“…live they were monumental, change your life, blow away time… They came to town and we were like WOW!” – Henry Rollins
Considered by many to be one of the founders of hardcore punk music along with influential contemporaries such as Black Flag and The Germs, D.O.A formed in 1978 from the ashes of Vancouver punk rock band The Skulls. In 1981, D.O.A. made the term “hardcore” their own and pushed it into the common vernacular with their legendary album “Hardcore 81″ and subsequent tours.
An uncompromisingly leftist political stance has stood with the band throughout their long and colourful career actively addressing issues like racism, globalization and freedom of speech. The band has put out several records on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label and have even released an album with Jello Biafra called Last Scream Of The Missing Neighbors.
