Bio

Emigrating from Derbyshire, England in their teens, Jozef (vocals and rhythm guitar) and James Wisniewski (bass) took it upon themselves early on to be musicians and songwriters. With this vision in mind it didn’t take long for them to recruit their high school friend Adrian Brown (Lead guitarist) and drummer Ben Fothergill to complete the framework for their vision. Forming in late 2010, Tourism didn’t waste any time in getting their show onto the stage and showing the quickly amassing fans what they are all about, and why they are so captivating live. Industry recognition soon followed with Tourism being selected as the local act to open the Main Amphitheatre Stage at Splendour in the Grass 2011. With the taste of the big stage in their mouth, Tourism have since set about the task of further developing their encompassing live show and sound with a strong emphasis on high energy performances. In the midst of Australia’s indie pop epidemic, Tourism has managed to find their niche. Staggering between their own indie pop beginnings and raw, snarling rock - with powerfully delivered British melodies, driving rhythms and guitars engulfing the entire spectrum from bright and playful to down right dirty, Tourism is the Australian love child of the Arctic Monkeys and the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The perfect Australian/British/American hybrid. Having shared the stage with some of Australia’s best young bands including Faker, Snakadaktal, Art of Sleeping, The Preatures, The Belligerents and a national support tour with Tigertown, Tourism are now perfectly placed to stand on their own with their first headline tour coming in April to support their follow up single “Float Away”. With a rapidly growing Australian and International fan base, Tourism are set to spend most of 2013 on the road taking their captivating live presence to the fans and supporting their debut self titled EP. Tourism, they’re not an industry dedicated to travel, they’re a journey to be embarked upon. Bookings: katie@sidekickmanagement.com.au Press: camille@sidekickmanagement.com.au

Welcome back! You're going hard here and the result is something that chugs and churns without feeling sluggish. Congratulations!

The last minute of this track won me over. Great air guitar moment. No, you can't see it.
