The Hard Aches

The Hard Aches

Since forming in 2012, The Hard Aches brand of slacker, indie punk has honed itself into something that is unmistakably their own. Introspective, powerful lyricism by Guitarist Ben David lends itself to bands like Billy Bragg, Menzingers, Brand New and The Clash, dealing with important, yet somewhat rarely addressed issues like depression, anxiety, loss, and the real hunger for redemption through support and community.

Whilst receiving stellar reviews, and accolades for singles “Glad That You’re Gone”, “Get Like This” and “Gutfull”, this is a band that demands to be seen live to be truly appreciated. A wall of sound greets - overdriven guitar and complex, yet feelsy drums making it difficult to fathom the sound is coming from a two piece band.

No stranger to stages as diverse as laundromats, lounge rooms, theatres and festivals, The Hard Aches took to the road at every chance they could get in 2016, touring with Luca Brasi, Tired Lion, and Camp Cope nationally, as well as being invited to take part in the inaugural Poison City Weekender, and I Love Life festivals. This community, the bands and people that exist in it mean the world to them, and it’s the real driving force behind what makes The Hard Aches continue to play.

2017 sees The Hard Aches tour with The Front Bottoms nationally, writing for their eagerly anticipated second album, a follow up to 2014s ‘Pheromones’ and a blistering tour of Europe.
