With seven members on stage, TISM have a legendary cult that has grown since the mid-1980s when they began performing live, and has reached a wide audience with the release of their 1988 debut album. Big Renaissance Song Trucks.

Always in disguise and using provocative aliases, TISM has released five more studio albums, performed in pubs and at festivals across Australia and received two ARIA awards out of six nominations. However, according to singer Ron Hitler-Barassi, he is proud of what he has most of the last 19 years.

“These 19 years of silence on our behalf have actually become an artistic event,” he said. “We don’t make music, we don’t meet or talk to each other, we don’t play live and nobody thinks about TISM at all. I think it was our greatest achievement, and I know many of our critics too. ”

Good Things will take place in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in December and include international bands Bring Me The Horizon, Deftones, Lacuna Coil and Soulfly along with Australian bands Regurgitator, Cosmic Psychos, Kisschasy and others. For the first time Good Things, designed for fans of rock, metal and punk, was held in 2018.

Humphrey B. Flaubert, percussionist, singer and founding member of TISM, said that “great art takes a long time to ferment”, and although he is happy with future shows, he stressed that people should not be strong nostalgia for the past.

“It is important … especially in the difficult times that everyone has gone through, to break the silence of our artistic event [and] note that everything was not so good all these years ago. And we are here as proof. “

Flaubert suggested that “virtually everything we released” could be controversial if played live in 2022, while Hitler-Barassi said “silence was safer” and the band is adopting a new style of music for their future performances.
