Kingswood have just kicked off a massive year with two singles ‘ICFYDLM’ and ‘Micro Wars’ [WATCH ‘MICRO WARS’ HERE] screaming into triple j’s Hottest 100 at #76 and #56 respectively. This signifies consecutive achievements for the band after 2013’s ‘Ohio’ entered at #53 in the world’s biggest music poll. With the release of their critically acclaimed and ARIA nominated debut album, Microscopic Wars, the band have commenced a fifteen date national tour and now announce a host of special guests.

Joining them on their Microscopic Wars Tour II will be some of the countries’ best young rock n’ rollers all armed with raucous fuzz guitars including Lurch & Chief – Melbourne stoner-psych six piece who’s latest single ‘Keep It Together’ was another success across triple j and community radio, The Belligerents – who have recently announced their signing to booking agency 123, along with their very own ‘In My Way’ single tour and My Echo – who recently supported Jimmy Eat World on their national tour.

KINGSWOOD Release Short Film For Micro Wars

KINGSWOOD Release Short Film For Micro Wars
kingswood

Melbourne’s favourite indie-rockers Kingswood have enlisted an all-star cast from the Australian music industry to join them in creating a cinematic short film featuring latest single from Kingswood – ‘Micro Wars’ and album track ‘Eye Of The Storm

Ian Moss, Freddy Crabs (Sticky Fingers), Sam Margin, Zac Margin, Scott Baldwin and Will Zeglis (The Rubens), Thomas Champion (The Preatures), Jake Stone (Bluejuice), Tkay Maidza and Australian actress Liana Cornell all play a role alongside the members of Kingswood in this tale of love, loss and revenge.
Watch the video for ‘Micro Wars’ HERE
 
The film directed by guitarist Alex Laska (Kingswood) and Jason Von Drayco captures the bands signature cinematic style seen in the earlier video for simmering slow burner ‘I Can Feel That You Don’t Love Me’.

The story of ‘Micro Wars’ is set in the dark underbelly of the Sydney underworld as the band of brothers tear up the Sydney Streets riding with the wind upon thundering motorcycles. Capulet meets Montague; our Romeo (Fergus Linacre) meets Juliet (Liana Cornell). A dramatic tale of forbidden love and tragedy ensue ending in a heroic, blood-spattered gun slinging show down between our musically talented all-star cast set to the backdrop of a derelict abandoned asylum.
“It’s sort of the second installment of our endeavours in making grind house styled cinema but with much more of an Australian twist, Animal Kingdom was a big influence…” Alex Laska

Kingswood’s debut album ‘Microscopic Wars’ has been nominated for ARIA ‘Best Rock Album’ 2014
