A brand new Short Stack album and some accompanying shows are undoubtedly a match made in heaven; and as of today, the pop punk stalwarts have announced an impending run of live shows later this month to celebrate their brand new full-length Maybe There's No Heaven which dropped last Friday April 8. Converging the trio's colourful decade-long career with a renewed creative lease on life, Short Stack have truly soared to sensational heights on their fifth studio album, blending hooky bangers, sharp execution and searing authenticity into an 11 track masterpiece - and all entirely on their own terms. Fresh off the release of their staggering new sonic opus, Short Stack are now set to bring the pop-punk frivolities to stages in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney to cap off the journey for Maybe There's No Heaven and pay homage to their beloved fans in a live setting who also played a large part in bringing this latest endeavour to life. Also along for the ride for three back-to-back nights, kicking off on Friday April 22 at Howler in Melbourne before heading to Brisbane and Sydney across the weekend, fellow pop-punkers Paperweight and theatrical rock wizards Wolf & Chain will be bringing all of the the glittering grit to help christen Maybe There's No Heaven. Forged in the fires of the global pandemic, Melbourne's Paperweight emerged in May 2020 with their debut single Waster, quickly snapping heads and simultaneously amassing over 60k streams in the space of a year, while also scoring spins on triple j, Unearthed Radio an Triple M Hard N Heavy. Following a support slot with fellow Melbourne pop-rockers Terra and a sold-out debut headline show at Stay Gold in Melbourne last March, 2022 is theirs for the taking, with a live show as explosive as their boisterously airy anthems. Hailing from Adelaide, theatrical rockers Wolf & Chain wield rock-opera, goth and irresistible emo-punk aesthetics, commanding a cult-like following since their debut EP An Honest Mistake erupted into the world in 2020. Scoring Rolling Stone Australia's Music Video of the Week in 2021 for the vampiric clip Taste of Blood, Wolf & Chain also released late last year a new EP Amor Mortal continue to channel boisterous chaos with glistening glee, proving to be continuously unforgettable both on and off the stage. Don't sleep on Short Stack christening their incredible new album Maybe There's No Heaven in just a few short weeks' time!
