Fucked Up and Kurt Vile rocking down under

Always partying the hardest and touring the furthest, Fucked Up and Kurt Vile (along with the Violators) both head for warmer climates with tours south of the equator this winter.  It’ll be Kurt’s first time ever to Australia and New Zealand, whilst Fucked Up aren’t strangers to the land down under – though they may be strangers to some of the 50,000 capacity stadiums they’ll be playing whilst supporting the Foo Fighters.

Tenacious D also support on the FF tour, meaning Matador’s favourite frenemy of 2011 (friend/enemy) will be sharing the stage too. We can only assume that hilarity will ensue.
