This Is The (Living) End, My Beautiful Friend
Things just get better and better for The Living End, undisputed stars of the 2006 Jack Awards on Tuesday 20 June, taking out four gongs (and were the only artist to receive more than one award). First up, their acclaimed State Of Emergency album is a scant few units away from hitting platinum status locally. What’s more, it’s about to be released through Adeline Records (the label formed by Green Day’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and manager Pat Magnarella) to coincide with their appearances on the Warped Tour and their own North American headline tour, with releases scheduled for Canada and Japan shortly thereafter. And if that wasn’t enough, they’re just about to release Long Live The Weekend as a single here at home and head off on a 34 date national tour with End Of Fashion and The Red Riders, which will visit Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Monday 9 October, the Central Coast Leagues Club at Gosford Tuesday 10, Big Top Luna Park on Thursday 12 (all ages), Shelly’s in Wollongong on Friday 13 (over 18s) and Saturday 14 (under 18s) and Canberra’s Royal Theatre on Sunday 15.
