After months of shortlisting and public votes, VB has announced the winners of its Hard Yards Tour competition, picking out some of Australia's freshest emerging talent and supporting them as they tour across the country.
Gold Coast punk heavyweights Being Jane Lane, Newcastle emo lords Paper Thin and Melbourne '90s revivalists Claws & Organs have been announced as this years lucky winners, who are all set to jet off to Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney supporting the likes of Alex Lahey, WAAX, RAAVE TAPES and Tired Lion respectively.
The winners were selected from a mammoth pool of 600 nominated acts and whittled down by a public voting process, which gathered over 4000 entries.
