VB Hard Yards returns in 2018 as a 4-date tour! Here’s how to get your band involved

Last year we hopped along to the finals of the inaugural VB Hard Yards competition, a fierce three-way battle between Mini Skirt, RACKETT, and Shearin’ for a lump of cash and a spot on the B-side of Cosmic Psychos’ upcoming 7″.

It was one hell of a gig and one hell of a comp, so we’re stoked to see it return even bigger in 2018. Yep, Hard Yards is going interstate.

Want to get your band on tour with VB Hard Yards this October? Applications are officially open for the 2018 cohort.

After an excellent showing by the Lansdowne Hotel last year, Hard Yards will be returning to the venue at the start of October. Other cities on the new and improved ticket are Melbourne, Brisbane, and Newcastle.

Bands can head here before July 15th to enter themselves into the comp. In July, fans will vote on shortlisted bands, ultimately deciding who will head on the tour, take home $5000 in cash, and get a ton of pre-booked rehearsal rooms to tighten up their chops.

Hear it all from Ross below:
