When you have a dream pairing of DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and PERIPHERY, it wasn't going to take long for shows to start selling out. Melbourne fans have reacted first and the Sunday 25 October show at 170 Russell is now completely sold out! We are bloody stoked to announce that both artists have agreed to perform a second and definitely final Melbourne show on Monday 26 October at 170 Russell. Tickets go on sale Thursday 30 July, 9am AEST. Brisbane and Sydney fans be warned that only limited tickets remain for your shows.
When it comes to faultless reputations, the band everyone thinks of is THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. With a slew of brilliant albums behind them, the titans of envelope-pushing, ground-breaking heavy music have become one of the most formidable acts on the planet.
Their newest album, ‘One of Us is the Killer’, is the band’s defining work with critics salivating and declaring them “leaders in a genre of precisely one” (Metal Hammer, 9/10); “enduringly peerless” (Rock Sound); “firing on cylinders, just as urgent as ever” (Alternative Press); “operating at the peak of their powers” (Kerrang!).
DEVIN TOWNSEND is one of the most prodigious and prolific contemporary talents in the metal world, along with being one of the most admired and celebrated.
For almost 20 years, DEVIN TOWNSEND has amazed, beguiled and occasionally baffled all comers in numerous incarnations spanning the extreme noise metal of Strapping Young Lad to the intricate melodies of Ocean Machine; Devin has had his hand in almost every genre of music, from industrial metal to progressive rock to ambient sounds. All of these projects had one thing in common: GENIUS.
Whether listening to a CIRCA SURVIVE album or attending a live show, one thing remains constant; the experience is both exhausting and exhilarating.
CIRCA SURVIVE are a model of sonic and psychic consistency, ever since they brought us the explosive debut album Juturna in 2005. It should come as no surprise, then, that their fifth album, Descensus, falls in line as an incredibly strong and innovative album and is “just one more piece of evidence proving CIRCA SURVIVE are far and away one of the best bands operating today, and why ‘Descensus’ is yet another gold star in a career already full of them.” – Alternative Press
AVASTERA are a unique and diverse band from Perth who have quickly landed stepping stones of distinct accomplishments and successes very early on in their career. To simply narrow them down and label them to one specific genre would not justify their unique sound, an interesting yet catchy blend of Alternative Rock, Pop-punk, Melodic Prog Metal, Contemporary Pop. Due to their well-crafted sound and consistent drive to take things to the next level, things can only get bigger from here for AVASTERA.
Catch them supporting YOU ME AT SIX in Perth!
From infamous sold out shows at London’s Wembley Arena and around the globe, YOU ME AT SIX are hitting Australia with their incredibly energetic live show. If it’s anything like previous Australian tours, these shows will sell quickly, so don’t miss out!
“YOU ME AT SIX’s set was phenomenal, to sum up in one word.” - Reverb Magazine
They’ll be taking very special guests LUCA BRASI along the ride for a handful of metro shows (excluding Perth).
