2012 has already been a massive year for Australian bands and this week we have taken the chance to catch up with two of our favourite locals that have been making the most of the year already.
The Ramshackle Army have just got back from the USA where they snagged the opportunity to play alongside The Dropkick Murphys on a heap of shows including their infamous St Patrick’s day extravaganza. While this was going on, Hightime were out on the road back home in support of their debut album, Ishi Prende, where they left a string of venues battered and broken on their departure.
With both bands about to open up for Anti Flag, Strike Anywhere and The Flatliners on their latest Australian Tour, we thought this was a good time to sit down with the guys and have a chat, in a slightly different way that we normally would.
