My Disco bring their unique brand of dark post-punk minimalism to Launceston.

MY DISCO is an Australian music group that was formed between long term
collaborators, Rohan Rebeiro,Benjamin Andrews, and Liam Andrews in 2003.
In 2003, MY DISCO performed their first shows in unconventional all-ages
venues in Melbourne.
Late 2003 saw the release of their debut 7" and marked their first Australian
tour. The band soon became renowned for their arduous tour ethic,
demonstrated in extensive tours to often far to reach destinations that included
remote areas of Australia, Southeast Asia and Mexico.
The release of their debut album 'Cancer' in late 2006 marked a new level of
emphasis on minimalism. More international and national tours were
undertaken, including additional tours to the United States, New Zealand and
the United Kingdom.
Their second album 'Paradise' was recorded in Chicago, Illinois in 2007 with
Steve Albini at his studio Electrical Audio. The album is noted as the band's
mostrefined and minimalistrelease, capturing their stentorian live sound, with
several songs consisting of one note, repetitive single-sentence vocals and
long- sustained guitar chords. Drum patterns, although minimal, still offer
dance-like, disjointed beats.
2010 saw the release of a new single called "Young", a limited edition 12"
released through Mistletone Records and re-issue throughBlast FirstPetite, as
a lead up to their third and forthcoming album.
2010 Saw the release of the band's third and most diverse album, 'Little Joy.'
Their first signing to NYC acclaimed label, Temporary Residence Limited.
2012 MY DISCO released another limited 12", this time World Wide through
Temporary Residence Ltd, entitled "Wrapped Coast." The record features two
extensive racks, with remixes by London's Factory Floor, and Birmingham
based noise-maker Justin Broadrick.
On International Record Store Day in 2013, the band put out a single on one of
the World's most acclaimed independent labels, Sub Pop records. It featured as
the label's 1000th release.
2014/15 saw the band put the finishing touches on their fourth studio album,
entitled "Severe" and once again working with Producer and friend Cornel
Wilzcek at Electric Dreams Studios in SouthMelbourne.

Considered their bleakest work to date, Severe captures the subtleness and
high concentration levels of MY DISCOs renowned minimalist approach to dark
and heavy instrumentation.
Severe was nominated and shortlisted into the final for the AMPAustralian
Music Prize.
2016/2017 saw the band headline the prestigious Sugar Mountain Music
Festival in Melbourne, as well as co-headline a show with The Drones at The
MelbourneTownHall as part of Melbourne Festival. Europe,South EastAsia,
Japan and multiple Australian headline tours followed.
In 2018 the band started work on their fifth studio album in Berlin, Germany, and
Melbourne, Australia. Working with Boris Wilsdorf and Cornel Wilzcek, the
album is titled 'Environment' and was released World Wide on Downwards
Records in early 2019. It has been considered their most uncompromising
work to date.
In 2019 the group toured Australia and Europe extensively to coincide with
Environment's release. They performed at Berlin's Atonal Festival in August,
toured with Southern Lord band Big Brave through Europe and the UK and
headlined shows in Russia in early September.
In January 2020, the band embarked on a tour of Australia and released a
remix LP on Downwards Records, working alongside label head Regis, as
well as contemporaries Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, Giant Swan, Oliver
Ho and Kerridge.
