    Frontier Touring is pleased to announce London-based, Melbourne post-punk duo HighSchool will return to Australia next month to perform two upcoming headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne this February/March.

    Led by band members Rory Trobbiani and Luke Scott, the intoxicating outfit return to our shores – following 2022’s sold out visit, which saw venues upgraded due to demand – with a forthcoming new EP on the horizon. Recently inking a deal with [PIAS Australia], the band headed into the studio and dropped latest release, ‘August 19’, in December 2023… the first taste of what’s to come this year. The infectious duo collaborated on the track with rising London producer Finn Billingham (Sam Akpro and Sunken) and engineer Philippe Weiss (Madonna, Nas, Drake, Earl Sweatshirt), with mastering by Blur and Depeche Mode producer Ben Hillier.

    HighSchool will perform two shows while in Australia: The Lansdowne, Sydney, on Thursday 29 February, and The Night Cat, Melbourne, on Saturday 2 March. Frontier Members pre sale will begin Wednesday 31 January (11am AEDT – see for more details), before tickets go on sale on Friday 2 February (11am AEDT).

    Making their debut with 2021’s six-track debut EP Forever at Last, HighSchool relocated to London. From BBC 6Music playlisting to shows with CHVRCHES, Sam Fender, NewDad and Wet Leg, the band have performed at festivals SXSW, All Points East, End of the Road, The Great Escape, Manchester Pysch Festival, and more. March 2024 will see HighSchool make their live debut in Japan, following the Australian dates.
