Nick Oliveri & Svetlanas
The man, the myth, the legend Nick Oliveri (QOTSA/Kyuss) returns to Australia this July, teaming up with Russian punk sensations Svetlanas for what will be their first ever joint tour down under.
The latest Australian tour, Nick Oliveri’s third in solo mode after a majority sold out 2016 Aussie tour, will see both acts perform across the country on the back of an already announced Dead of Winter Festival appearance in QLD. Oliveri will rip out ‘Death Acoustic’ and Kyuss sets with local Aussie bands as well as randomly jumping in on bass with friends Svetlanas, known for their super high intensity live shows.
Svetlanas are no stranger to the big stage, lining up for performances at such international festivals as Vans Warped Tour (USA), South by Southwest (USA), Punk Rock Bowling (USA), Rebellion Festival (UK) Extreme Fest (FR) and more, earning praise and respect along the way from such punk and rock heavy hitters like Gene Simmons, Jello Biafra and The Adolescents, who they partnered with on a split release titled ‘Hot War’.
The band says of the upcoming jaunt “We are really stoked to play Australia for the first time. We don’t know what to expect but hey you don’t either! As if that’s not enough, we are very happy to make this Australian debut with our brother Nick Oliveri.”
