THE BOYS LIGHT UP, one of Australian Crawl’s most loved songs, will turn the big 4-1 in 2021 and to celebrate, James Reyne will tour the nation paying homage to this enduring tune.
‘The Boys Light Up’ was written by James Reyne, and featured on the album of the same name, released in 1980 on EMI. It was Australian Crawl’s debut album and also featured ‘Indisposed’, ‘Downhearted’, ‘Beautiful People’ and ‘Hoochie Gucci Fiorucci Mama’.
James reflected on the song today, saying,
“ Boys Light Up is turning 41! By Jove, who woulda thunk it. If I’d known what gave it legs I would’ve bottled it and drunk it. And I’m delighted that so many take this song into their hearts ‘cause it never really was a hit - it just SCRAPED into the charts. But it seems to hit a nerve, a chord, a nail, a bell, a spot ‘cause I tell ya, we don’t play it I’m likely to get shot! Or met by blokes in car-parks full of vinegar and piss who wanna know what game I’m playing, wanna know, “What game is this?!” They say they’ve got it on the record on CD, 8-track, cassette and they drove 500 miles not to hear it! Most upset!
“So, we’re coming to your town to celebrate it’s Come-Of-Age - bring all your bells and whistles ‘cause we’ll be BLISTERING the stage. There’ll be thrills and there’ll be spills as we fill that ROCKING cup ‘cause those Boys are turning 41 so c’mon and light them up!!”
Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate 41 years of ‘The Boys Light Up’ with James Reyne and his incredible band of musicians - grab your tickets now!
Northern Beaches natives Ocean Alley are stoked to announce their first QLD shows in over 12 months!
The band released their critically acclaimed third LP Lonely Diamond in June, debuting at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart which follows the success of their second full-length Chiaroscuro (2018) which propelled the band into national prominence and saw them sell 25,000 tickets over 15 sold out shows that year in Australia alone – culminating with their ARIA nominated, double platinum-selling single ‘Confidence’ taking out #1 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2018.

Kingswood’s forthcoming Australian tour dates will be the first opportunities for fans to hear Juveniles presented in all its glory. A dynamic force on stage, the ARIA nominated group has enjoyed strong success on the road in Australia and abroad, with a tour history that counts tours with AC/DC and Aerosmith, festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin The Moo; and multiple sold out tours across the country as proud achievements.
The journey towards the release of “Juveniles” has been one paved creative reinvention. Throughout the album, fans can piece together definitive elements of music that has formed Kingswood’s dynamic musical identity over the course of six years of relentless touring and recording. ‘Bittersweet’ shines as a tight example of the band’s love for guitar-driven rock music; some may say it aligns itself strongly with the music of “Microscopic Wars”, however looking more broadly at Kingswood’s body of work, the progressions and stylistic arrangement of the band’s latest represents their genre-diverse tapestry of individual music tastes.
Melodically rich and delivered with the punch 2017’s “After Hours”, “Close To Dawn” became synonymous with, ‘Bittersweet’ is Kingswood at their unfiltered best. It’s a temperament that Kingswood applied to “Juveniles” as a whole. Embracing creative chaos has led the band to make music that has refused to be pigeonholed over the last handful over years, and it’s the way they like it. “‘Bittersweet’ was originally inspired by the love story of one of our dearest friends. Without going into detail, a medical issue put a question mark over their future, but without blinking they forged on together, overcome with love and companionship. The opening line, “There’s no love on this earth that isn’t bittersweet”, is a truth that we should all remember as we paddle through the waves.” Fergus Linacre
A truly global record, Kingswood’s new music came to fruition across multiple writing and recording sessions across the US, UK and Europe. Through it all, the dynamic between chief songwriters Alex Laska and Fergus Linacre strengthened and diversified in personal - as well as combined - style and delivery. Working with frequent collaborator and producer Eddie Spear in their second home of Nashville, the record was an emotional one to solidify. “The album we’re finally presenting was an incredibly long and winding investigation through many different facets and avenues; almost a rediscovery, if you will, of who we are and what we find inspiring.” Alex Laska
PRAISE FOR KINGSWOOD
“Fusing the sprinklings of Queen’s rock bravado in with the leather-clad swagged out rock of Queens of The Stone Age, and you’ve got a rough image of where Kingswood sit in this new chapter of theirs.”
“Jam-packed with slick riffage, stadium rock bravado and straight-up delicious falsetto set to the backdrop of a band clearly who call no man ‘Sir’.”
“Kingswood gives you a little something extra - it makes your body move, your fists clench, and your shoulders pull back as your hands itch to drum along on the dashboard.”
2020 heralds a new, definitive chapter for the band. A chapter built on strong songwriting, fun and energy drawn from a more matured sense of musical identity, Kingswood are ready to kick into 2020. Hard. “You know how people say, ‘Someone needs to save rock and roll?’ - we’re putting our hands up. Fuck it, we’ll do it. Why not?” Alex Laska
