Justice is set to release Access All Arenas, a recording of their show in the ‘Nîmes Arenas’ last July, which was part of their yearlong worldwide tour.  The album revisits their years of existence so far, giving us a taste of the wild effervescence and the energy of their lives. Access all Arenas is available on Friday 10 May.

Ten years ago, the track We Are Your Friends reached our ears and pushed a young French duo consisting of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay aka ‘Justice’ to the front of the electronic music scene. The duo was signed by Pedro Winter, owner of Ed Banger Records. Their debut record that followed, , was an album of condensed jerky electro, disco reminiscences and heavy metal energy, with unstoppable tunes like D.A.N.C.E, Stress and Phantom, and its videos, allowed Justice to follow the 90’s French Touch and its filtered disco loop.

In 2012, Justice release their sophomore album Audio, Video, Disco using the combined musical vocabulary of rock and electronic to conjure a laid back, agricultural effort existing on the outer fringes of pop. Audio, Video, Disco was created in the duo’s home studio, with all instrumentation performed by the group themselves.

Since the release of their debut album in 2007, Justice have toured tirelessly, playing festivals and concerts all around the globe, from Australia (playing Parklife in both 2007 and 2012) to the United States, Europe and South America. The duo has played main stages at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Les Eurockéennes, Les Vieilles Charrues. As well as headlining all of the major Electronic Music Festivals, Ultra Music Festival, Sonar, and Melt.

The duo developed at a young age, a powerful stage design that they have polished and magnified throughout the years. Employing a wall of LED-filled Marshall amps, among other one-of-a-kind eccentricities, Justice are said to have one of the most ambitiously compelling stage productions today. Their show is a one and a half hour sonic and visual roller coaster.

The Broadway musical They’re Playing Our Song had its Australian premiere at the Theatre Royal in 1980 and will return in a brand-new production for a strictly limited engagement.

Two of Australia’s finest music theatre performers and real-life couple Danielle Barnes (The Boy from Oz, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) and Scott Irwin (Hairspray, Les Misérables) star as the unlikely lovers Sonia and Vernon in a story based on the real-life relationship of composer Marvin Hamlisch and lyricist Carole Bayer Sager.

A wisecracking composer finds a new, offbeat lyricist. When Vernon Gersch meets Sonia Walsk at his luxury Manhattan apartment, it signals the beginning of a whirlwind professional and romantic relationship for these two very different personalities. When it comes to making music, they are a match made in heaven. But is this relationship doomed, or will love strike the right note?

They’re Playing Our Song was written by the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Odd Couple and Sweet Charity, Neil Simon, with music by Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line, The Way We Were) and lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager (That’s What Friends Are For, Don’t Cry Out Loud).

They're Playing Our Song features such memorable songs as If He Really Knew Me, They’re Playing Our Song and Fallin’, making this romantic comedy an unforgettable evening of stellar musical entertainment.
