America's most exciting political band Downtown Boys are out to draft a new history with their radically-minded, indefatigable protest music and they're bringing their powerhouse live shows to Australia this December.

Already announced as part of Meredith Music Festival's eclectic 2017 lineup, the five piece will play three headlining shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Wollongong.

In the words of vocalist and lyricist Victoria Ruiz, Downtown Boys are ?five unique and individual people who believe in the spectrum of people, experiences and emotions.? In this time of political turmoil, there's no stopping Downtown Boys and their mission to unite crowds and shout the truths of our realities. Speaking out against racism, queerphobia, capitalism, fascism, and all things close-minded, Downtown Boys' live shows are awe-inspiring and invigorating with a relentless and infectious energy befitting of their riotous lyrics.

Lead singer Victoria Ruiz is known for her truly captivating presence and with influences such as Fugazi and Bruce Springsteen, the band's sax-fuelled live performances are can't-stop-talking-about-it powerful, igniting a mix of catharsis, empowerment and outright fun among their audiences.

Like the socially conscious groups of years past, from Public Enemy to Rage Against the Machine, Downtown Boys harness powerful sloganeering, repetitive grooves, and earworm hooks to create one of the most necessary musical statements of today.

Downtown Boys are here to remind us of the transformative power of music, and goddamn we've never needed it more than now.
