There is something in the water in Adelaide that creates excellent heavy music. Among the absolute dearth of heavy music that comes from Adelaide comes 23/19.

Today, 23/19 return to the fray with what is easily their heaviest and best song to date, ‘Thousand Eyes (Restrict)’. Produced by Scottie Simpson (Alpha Wolf, BLKLST) and mixed by Lance Prenc (Gravemind, Honest Crooks, Alpha Wolf), it also comes with a harsh and kinetic videoclip filmed, edited and directed by Colin Jeffs (Hammers, Boris The Blade, BLKLST). Vocalist for 23/19, Nathan Stuckey, said that “Thousand Eyes (Restrict) is about online bullying and how its effects can affect people’s actions in their everyday life.”

‘Thousand Eyes (Restrict)’ will be released on iTunes/Spotify/Apple Music & all good online outlets this Friday October 12. It’s the first track of a twin set of singles that comprise their release ‘Two More Reasons to Hate Us’ – which will be available Friday November 16 – just in time for their ‘Two More Reasons to Hate’ tour alongside fellow Adelaide-ians, Mauvais, which sees them kicking off in their hometown at Enigma Bar, then heading to Ballarat at Karova Lounge, Melbourne at Bendigo Hotel, Sydney All Ages at Chatswood Youth, Central Coast AA at ECP Studios and then finishing up at Brisbane’s home of heavy, Crowbar.

This is a band who have seriously cut their teeth smashing out shows alongside some of the best hardcore in Australia and the world, including internationals Stray from The Path & Counterpartsand The Acacia Strain & Kublai Khan and The Plot in You, as well as Australian acts such as Polaris, Make Them Suffer, Pridelands, Windwaker, Iconoclast, Gravemind, I, Valiance, Dregg, Alpha Wolf, A Night in Texas and more.

(Oh, and for those not in the know, the name 23/19 comes from the movie Monsters Inc., where an emergency code is called for a White Sock Alert – the letters W & S being the 23rd and 19th letters in the alphabet, respectively!)

23/19’s ‘Thousand Eyes (Restrict)’ sees its release this Friday October 12 on all good online outlets and tickets for their November “Two More Reasons To Hate” tour will be on sale Friday October 12 as well, with information at
