wo bands alike in virtue and acclaim will be going at it head to head to form the SPLIT ENDS 2012 tour. Presented by Tonedeaf, this fight for ultimate supremacy will see the contenders using every dirty trick in the book (and a few that aren’t) to win the favour of the good people as they streak around the country this August/September.

In the blue corner; Boy In A Box. With a new EP to offer and something to prove, Boy In A Box have been getting huge raps of late for their catchy as hell single ‘On My Mind’ as well as their incendiary live shows. Already no strangers to big stages, Boy In A Box have toured alongside the likes of Birds Of Tokyo and Calling All Cars, as well as appearing at Falls Festival in its 2011 incarnation.

In the red corner; Kingswood. Fresh from the battlefield of This Epic Tour alongside Money For Rope, the four-piece are teeth-gnashingly ready to take on all comers with no quarter asked and none to be given. With more than a few recent wins under their collective belt including slabs of national airplay for their recent singles ‘Yeah Go Die’ and ‘Medusa’, the band has also been given the green light to kick off main stage proceedings at the 2012 Splendour In The Grass festival.

A co-headline tour without recent parallel, SPLIT ENDS 2012, kicks off in Sydney this August 23before taking in Newcastle and Adelaide followed by a hometown showdown in Melbourne. And while the competition will likely be too close to call, there is a good chance that there will be blood.
