Transit Announce Their First Australian Tour

make their Australian live debut this August, taking in eleven stops around the country with Melbourne punk stalwarts Anchors on board as main support. An impressive slew of the best locals have been locked in to open each show around the nation. Read on for the full bill for each date.

The north shore Boston outfit consistently expresses an arresting degree of honesty and individuality in their music, while continuing to evolve artistically from one release to the next. Heavily influenced early on by the punk scenes that all five members grew up in, ’s sound has since developed towards a more alternative, indie rock sound.

‘Listen & Forgive’, the 3rd release from Transit in just six years was the subject of great anticipation. Earlier efforts from the band have received countless accolades. Transit’s highly acclaimed LP, Keep This To Yourself, released in August 2010 on Run For Cover Records, inspired Absolutepunk to rave: “Good luck keeping Transit’s passionate and infectious tunes a secret. Once you hear the first chords of opener “Dear Anyone,” you’ll immediately go out and tell all your friends about the best pop-punk album of 2010.” Alterbative Press, in a glowing review of Promise Nothing (Rise Records, 25 April 2011), praised the band’s meteoric creative growth, comparing them to Jimmy Eat World and Moneen. Promise Nothing was a limited edition special release for Record Store day and sold out in advance. Alternative Press also named Transit one of the “Bands To Watch in 2011″ and truly lived up to the anticipation, touring throughout The States and further abroad alongside Four Year Strong, The Wonder Years, Less Than Jake, Bayside, Man Overboard, Senses Fail and many others. In 2012, Transit continues the journey and continues to impress wherever the road takes them. “Music is about connecting with people, and that’s what we focus on more than anything else,” says Transit’s vocalist Joe Boynton.
