Black Country, New Road

7 March 2024

In the Concert Hall

Contemporary Music

Making their highly anticipated Australian debut, Mercury Prize-nominated British art-rock ensemble Black Country, New Road are set to transform the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with a spectacular performance.

One of our greatest bands. They are unstoppable.


Shape-shifting art rock sounds from one of the UK’s most exciting young bands

Deftly mixing post-punk, experimental and post-rock, Black Country, New Road burst out of London’s thriving Windmill scene with their 2019 singles 'Athens, France' and 'Sunglasses', leading them to be dubbed 'the best in the entire world' by The Quietus. Their debut album, 2021’s For the First Time, soared to the top five in the UK and was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, while the smash follow up, Ants from Up There, was named among the best albums of 2022. Following the departure of distinctive lead vocalist Isaac Wood, the band regrouped for a series of performances that birthed this year’s Live at Bush Hall, a critically acclaimed album that saw the six-piece pivot from their rousing post-punk sound to wildly avant garde musical theatre, emerging creatively reinvigorated – and even more sonically thrilling – in the process.

For Black Country, New Road’s long-awaited Australian debut, the band will bring their singular sound to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for one show only. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience one of the UK’s most forward-thinking, musically adventurous young bands at their exhilarating, shape-shifting peak.
