How can other local artists strike while the iron is hot too?
In a conference first, Face The Music features an in-depth Focus on The Living End, presented by APRA AMCOS. All three band members, Chris Cheney, Scott Owen and Andy Strachan, discuss the stories behind their songs, their songwriting process, the highs and the 'not so's' and what the future holds as they begin work on their seventh album. The Living End will be joined on stage by their highly-respected, long-standing manager Rae Harvey.
