Welcoming The Goon Sax To Ground Control Touring

Welcoming The Goon Sax To Ground Control Touring

Posted 03/27/2018

We’re ecstatic to welcome The Goon Sax to our roster of touring artists!

The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. According to Metacritic, Up To Anything was the 8th best-reviewed debut album anywhere in the world in 2016.

The Goon Sax toured UK and Europe twice on that record, played shows with Whitney, US Girls, Teenage Fanclub, Twerps and Blank Realm, graduated school, and then turned their focus to album number two, due to be released later in the year on Chapter Music in Australia and New Zealand and on Wichita for the rest of the world. They flew to Melbourne to record with James Cecil and Cameron Bird, respectively former/current members of Architecture In Helsinki.

Keep an eye on their artist page for the most up-to-date news and all North American tour dates.
