This Saturday, terrific teen trio The Goon Sax kick off their Up To Anything album launch tour in sunny Sydney. The album has been getting hot press all over the world, including rave reviews in Mojo,Pitchfork, Uncut and Rolling Stone!, Chapter Music is excited to announce a new tour in the form of Brisbane teenagers Louis Forster, Riley Jones and James Harrison, aka The Goon Sax.

We fell in love with the trio The Goon Sax since the release of their early singles ‘Sometimes Accidentally’ and standout ‘Boyfriend’ which we called “a hooky three minutes that ride a down tempo wave of both laconic wit and painful longing.”

Signed last year to Chapter Music on the strength of an unsolicited demo, (the first time that has ever happened in the label’s history), the young collective have gone on to slay critics’ hearts internationally and play with the likes of US Girls, Twerps, Blank Realm and Crayon Fields,

The Goon Sax make pop music. They love the Pastels, Talking Heads, Galaxie 500, the Apartments, Woody Guthrie and Prince. The band formed at high school in 2013 when James and Louis began workshopping song ideas in James’ bedroom. Riley joined in March 2014, after a month of drum lessons, and the band played their first show a few months later. They’ve since played with the likes of Twerps, Blank Realm, Darren Hanlon and others.
