Love Like Violence Returns To The Hyde Park For New Year’s Eve

A combination of local music staples and exciting up and comers, this year’s Love Like Violence lineup sees Schvendes and Eleventh He Reaches London (who’ll be ringing in the New Year bloody loudly) headlining the event, both with recent releases under their belts and both about to undertake national tours, with ludicrously strong support from The Devil Rides Out, Project Mayhem, The Scotch of Saint James (formerly The Slim Pickins), Hooper’s Store, Pond, Genghis and These Shipwrecks.

Add to that the cheapest ticket in town ($20+bf pre sale) and your New Years Eve is set. LLV:NYEO8 is all killer no filler – exceptional local bands at the haven of local music – get your party shoes on and rock the hell on into 2009.
