Photo Gallery: Bleeding Knees Club take us behind their EU tour

The Australian rock group will be touring their new album Fade The Hammer through December.

Aussie garage-punk icons Bleeding Knees Club are somewhat notorious for their lively and raucous live shows, which sees them really bring out the raw energy of their recorded work - like their latest album Fade The Hammer - and elevate it to a whole other level. It's something they're bringing to Australia across basically the whole of December, touring the country with Sydney garage-psyche upstarts Crocodylus and a bunch of special guests that vary from Teen Angst and Concrete Lawn - more info HERE.

It's set to be a bloody huge tour and to get you in the mood, we've got Bleeding Knees frontman Alex Wall to give us a bit of a behind-the-scenes look into their touring with a photo gallery of their recent European tour - dive into it below, with the full list of tour deets at the end.
