For the last nine years Long Island New York natives Iron Chic have been one of the most exciting bands in punk rock. Their DIY ethos and heartfelt, catchy sing along choruses have gained them masses of fans all over the world. A mainstay on the European and American punk circuit, February 2018 will see Iron Chic’s return to Australia.

Latest album You Can’t Stay Here, their first release on SideOneDummy Records, addresses the same big questions that have plagued the Long Island punk group from their outset: anxiety, depression, relationships, substance abuse, mortality, life, death, what it all means, why we’re forced to experience them.

“It’s hard to be a human being, how can we? When we’re not quite sure what being human means” sings Jason Lubrano on the album’s first single ‘My Best Friend (Is A Nihilist)’.

Last in Australia in 2015 for Poison City Weekender, two shows with The Smith Street Band on their ‘I Love Life’ festivals and a string of headline shows. 2018 will see Iron Chic returning to every city they played in 2015 along with shows in Hobart, Adelaide and Newcastle for the first time.
