After releasing their new track “World Away” in April, Tonight Alive are back, having announced a new tour—and an amazing competition to help give women in the scene more exposure by having bands with female members open for them in each city on their forthcoming headlining tour in Australian.
In the announcement, frontwoman Jenna McDougall explains that for the first time, they’re opening a slot in their lineup that’ll be voted on by fans.
“We're looking for the women in rock in Australia, so please submit and vote for your favorite up and coming Aussie bands with female members and help us support and celebrate our growing minority,” McDougall explains.
“We will be choosing a band in each city to open the show, and there will be plenty more information on our website.”
You can submit your chosen band here!

Tonight Alive made their return in April with a signing to Hopeless Records and a new track, called “World Away.”
This is the first release since the band's March 2016 album Limitless.
“'World Away' is a continuation of our quest for self understanding and empowerment, but this time through developing a personal relationship with darkness,” vocalist Jenna McDougall says.
The band are set to record their new album this summer.
