DEF FX 90s ELECTRO SURF ROCK BAND REUNITE FOR JUNE TOUR

Fronted by the enigmatic Oz rock queen, Fiona Horne and legendary keyboard/vocalist, Ant Banister, Def FX are returning to Australia in June 2019 for select shows and to make sure everyone gets to party like it’s 1996, or as Fiona says, ‘Fuck that! Let’s party like it’s NOW.’

Joining Def FX on tour are Very Special Guests, the blistering Nunchukka Superfly, (who rose from the ashes of Punk Metal Kings, The Hard On’s), Matt Doll (Pop King and founding member of The Mavis’s), Newcastle Punk Priestesses, Bitchcraft and Sydney’s epic Industrial Dance band, Snvff.

With all members of all the bands, sharing long friendships spanning back to the early 90’s, this tour promises to ‘go off and feel like family,’ say’s Horne.

Aria nominated, Number One charting 90’s band, Def FX, are the voice of a generation of Oz rockers who emerged in the 90’s with a totally unique sound: heavy guitars, dance beats and flagrant sampling (before there were laws against it) – a sound that ultimately became Electronica.

But Def FX defied labels, releasing four albums, multiple EP’s and singles and leaving critics scrambling to describe their rock, surf, dance, industrial, punk sound.  The bottom line was that audiences couldn’t get enough of their slamming, crazy high-energy shows, with front woman, Fiona Horne, establishing herself as one of Australia’s most powerful female performers.  Def FX’s seven year career saw them headline tours crisscrossing Australia, USA and Japan non-stop – and sharing the stage with bands like The Smashing Pumpkins and No Doubt.  Def FX also played the main stage every Big Day Out from 1991-1996.

Reuniting in 2012 and again in 2013 for sold out local tours, which saw loyal frenetic fans bringing their teenage kids along into the mosh pit, proved that Def FX forged a great sound for the 90’s… and beyond.
