Fresh off their announcement on the 2019 Meredith Music Festival line-up, Swedish punk band VIAGRA BOYS have announced they’ll bring their signature brawling, scuzzy live show to fans on the East Coast this December.

After selling out their first show at The ToteViagra Boys have announced a second, on Monday 16 December 2019.

TICKETS FOR SECOND SHOW ON SALE 10AM 29 AUGUST 2019.

Last year’s debut studio album STREET WORMS (YEAR0001) catapulted the rabble-rousers to critical acclaim, winning the IMPALA European Independent Album of the Year. Pitchfork named lead single, ‘Sports’ Best New Track, the grimy tongue-in-cheek hit receiving regular airplay on BBC Radio 1.

The experience of listening to STREET WORMS has been compared to riding shotgun with frontman Sebastian “Sebbe” Murphy as he “takes you blazing to the top of a mountain before speeding right back down to the basement again.” An emotional and sonic rollercoaster, the album’s success has seen Viagra Boys tour their twisted live show extensively throughout the UK, US and Europe, as well as earning spots on the line-ups of Leeds, Reading, Roskilde, and Öya festivals.

“Their wild energy has made them known as one of Europe’s best live bands, but anyone mistaking Viagra Boys for another testosterone-fueled act reveling in male bravado is missing the point.” – The Fader

“They put on a show that’s as corny as it is engrossing, with more trenchant commentary.” – Pitchfork

“a brawling collection of scuzzy yet precise street blues and freaky, often twisted imagery” – Vice

Formed in Stockholm in 2015 when bassist Henrik “Benke” Höckert witnessed Sebbe belting out Mariah Carey’s We Belong Together at a karaoke night, Viagra Boys have since established themselves as prodigies, using their platform – and their band name – to criticise hyper-masculinity and patriarchal structures, illuminate the dangers of right-wing populism in Europe, and celebrate short-shorts.

Impressing at their SXSW showcases this year, Sebbe’s stage persona has seen him compared to Iggy Pop and Nick Cave, while the band’s sweat-drenched shows have earned them a cult following among underground electronic and hip-hop fans, as well as their core of diehard punks. For the first time this summer, Australian listeners can see Viagra Boys’ addictive absurdism up close.
