Tasmanian alternative rock band LUCA BRASI today announce their album tour, ‘THE WORLD DON’T OWE YOU ANYTHING’, for May this yearKicking off at The Baso in Canberra, the band of mates will head to Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney and conclude at Newcastle’s King Street. Supporting them on all dates will be LA-formed indie punk band Spanish Love Songs.

Tasmanian best mates Luca Brasi have released their sixth studio album, ‘The World Don’t Owe You Anything’; thrumming with renewed energy and verve; a fiery blast from a band refreshed, renewed, and better than ever.

It’s often said that there’s something magical about Tasmania. And true, too, is that there’s something magical about Luca Brasi. They’re a marvel of an act – always humble, not an ego among them, as comfortable in amongst the crowd as they are in front of it. This band of mates, formed in the pristine yet rugged surrounds of Tasmania’s oft unforgiving east coast, has long been on a journey. From 2011’s raucous ‘Extended Family’ debut that grabbed everyone by the scruff and hauled them into a party that was already well underway, to 2021’s ‘Everything Is Tenuous’, that displayed a more matured, slowed down reflection on love, growing up, and getting older.

And now with ‘The World Don’t Owe You Anything’, the group’s sixth studio album, Luca Brasi gives us everything they’ve got. The riffs are desperate, fast, and are aching to be heard. The songwriting takes us on a journey of introspection and self-reflection and throws it up against a bombastic, urgent backing track that harkens back to the group’s salad days. The result is a collection of songs that beg the sky-flung fists and beer showers of bandrooms across the country to come with it.

Accompanying them as special guest on tour will be Spanish Love Songs. Despite their name, the LA-formed indie-punk band aren’t known for forays into the uplifting. Since 2013, the quintet have instead made hay on the backs of a string of beloved albums –2015’s ‘Giant Sings The Blues’, 2018’s ‘Schmaltz’ and 2020’s ‘Brave Faces Everyone’ – lauded by critics and fans alike for their richly personal, no-holds-barred lyricism awash in existential dead, hyper-personal cultural ruminations and attempts to answer life’s big questions. Their most recent album release ‘NO JOY’ find the band grappling with the messiness of what it means to be alive in the modern age –unsure of the answers themselves but confident that together, we can all come a little closer to the solutions.

Don’t miss Luca Brasi on their national tour with special guest Spanish Love Songs, this is one not to miss!
