“The Living End” - The Living End’s eighth studio album Wunderbar has seen a worldwide release through BMG on September 28.

Wunderbar came together faster than any other The Living End album before and is one of the most raw, conscious, and politically vital records of their career. Sound wise – Wunderbar isn’t a foray into electronic music or soft rock crooning.

It’s what The Living End are known for. It’s what they’re good at. It’s what they love.

Straightforward, heart-pounding, guns blazing rock and roll. The Wunderbar Tour will see Chris, Scott and Andy make a triumphant return to the national stage and place the boys back in their natural habitat.

The Tivoli, Brisbane, Thurs 1 Nov. Doors open 7pm. The Living End
