News: Speed Releases Tour Documentary Highlighting Hardcore In Southeast Asia

Since the release of their latest Flatspot Records EP, Gang Called Speed, Australian hardcore band Speed have been creating a buzz around the world. Every show they play has sold out, whether in Australia, their recent first tour in North America, and this past March, when the band traveled to Southeast Asia. As they continue to dominate their live touring cycles, the band recently shared a documentary following their time in Southeast Asia, highlighting four intense shows, making new friends, and meeting some incredible bands along the way (available below).

The band kicked the tour off with Whispers in Thailand, before getting a quick lesson on the history of hardcore in Singapore. Band members and brothers Jem and Aaron connect with their roots in Malaysia, and the tour concludes with a chaotic carpark show in Indonesia. Despite the language barriers and cultural differences, hardcore in the region is truly alive and spin-kicking, and Speed showcases the connectivity of the scene on a worldwide scale. The documentary was produced by Darryl Carulli at 510haven, and directed by both Carulli and Speed.

Speed will keep the momentum going as they are joined by Scowl and Sunami for an Australian tour in late May culminating at Back On The Map festival. They’ll then head to Europe for the first time for headline shows, with Zulu on select dates, and a performance at Outbreak Festival alongside Denzel Curry, Trapped Under Ice, and more. Speed will wrap things up as they head to the United States for the third time for performances at Sound and Fury in Los Angeles and This Is Hardcore in Philadelphia.
