This year’s tour, kicking off at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on 3 October, features Being Jane Lane, Paper Thin, and Claws & Organs, winners of the VB competition as voted by the public.

Brushing off the competition after whittled-down shortlists and over 4,000 votes, these lucky groups will appear in a coveted support slot on an east coast tour with Alex Lahey (Melbourne only), Tired Lion (Sydney only), WAAX (Brisbane only) and RAAVE TAPES (Newcastle only).

Over 600 stellar bands from Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, applied for the opportunity to perform with the recently revealed headliners on the VB Hard Yards 2018 tour—only three contenders were victorious.

In only two years, Paper Thin have burst across NSW state lines to conquer the country with their DIY ethic and catchy pop-punk numbers. A couple of EP’s and a bunch of festival appearances later, the only way is up for these Newcastle lads!

All-girl punk rock powerhouse Being Jane Lane (QLD) have captured the hearts of the sunshine state and with new tunes from their debut album Next Step, their infectiously high energy performances are not to be missed when they head out on VB Hard Yards.

Claws & Organs, indeed, the VIC outfit have held onto their music dreams with every fibre of their being through highs and very low lows. The blood, sweat and tears of this band form a living, breathing entity of pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ fucking roll.

Head on over to and get in quick for the chance to bag a coveted space in the crowd before it’s too late!
