This event is all ages

Due to a technical malfunction with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs' overseas passport and visa systems, members of our band have been unable to obtain essential working Visas, which are necessary to allow them to fly from Australia and perform shows in the U.S., forcing us to cancel the U.S. leg of our Sanctified Tour which was scheduled to begin in Chicago this weekend. 

After exhausting every option while trying to find a way for our tour to go ahead, it's with deep sadness we've been forced to cancel all dates.We apologise for the disappointment caused, nobody understands how you feel more than we do. We promise we are working hard to reschedule dates for as soon as possible. We promise we are working hard to reschedule dates for as soon as possible. We love you, you mean the world to us, and thank you for standing by our side. Refunds for each of our headline shows are available at point of purchase. - Jessica & Lisa Marie X

Something happens when Badflower singer and guitarist Josh Katz steps up to the microphone. His primal, powerful, and passionate transformation is the most unmitigated kind of catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity…
“The superhero version of myself comes out in the songs,” he affirms. “When I’m writing or performing, I go to this place that reflects the most emotional point I’ve hit at the moment. A lot of what’s being written is anger, lust, heartbreak, and all of that. Becoming an artist, I flip into this character I can’t shake or get rid of. I embrace it and keep writing in that direction.”
This approach stands out as Badflower’s calling card. It’s also a big reason why the group quietly became one of L.A.’s most buzzed-about rock ‘n’ roll bands. Since their emergence in 2014, the band—Josh, Joe Morrow [lead guitar, backing vocals], Alex Espiritu [bass], and Anthony Sonetti [drums]—has shared stages with the likes of KONGOS and The Veronicas, earned acclaim from OC Weekly, Loudwire, and more, and achieved a two-week run at #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only Show with “Heroin.” During 2016, fashion icon John Varvatos personally signed the band to John Varvatos Records. Little did he know, they had a big surprise up their sleeves.
“We actually had already started making a record without telling anybody,” smiles Josh. “After the deal was done, we were like, ‘How about this?’”
The boys cut the 2016 Temper EP [John Varvatos Records/Republic Records] in the garage of the Thousand Oaks, CA home which they share. Recorded during a blazing hot California summer, the sessions got so intense that their MacBook Pro often needed to cool down in the freezer. Wielding that energy, the music taps into a gritty and grunge-y gutter rock spirit complemented by jarring theatrical delivery and unshakable riffing, equally informed by Led Zeppelin and nineties Seattle as it is by film composers such as James Horner.
In 2017 the band signed a new deal with Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Records as a joint venture with Varvatos Records. Their debut album will be released later this year.
