|SIMPLE PLAN WITH SPECIAL GUESTS |
TUESDAY 10 DECEMBER – CBD LIVE, GOLD COAST
THURSDAY 12 DECEMBER – HQ, ADELAIDE
Simple Plan, the multi-platinum, Canadian pop punk legends need no
introduction. The band boasts worldwide sales topping 10 million and
countless accolades to their name. Last year the band performed
throughout the USA as one of the headliners for the final Warped Tour
and were featured at the two monumental Warped finale events in
Atlantic City and San Francisco this summer.
|TRIVIUM WITH SPECIAL GUESTS|
WEDNESDAY 4 DECEMBER – UC REFECTORY, CANBERRA
Following the 2003 independent breakout of Ember to Inferno, Trivium arrived as metal’s hungriest contender on 2005’s Ascendancy. Heralded as “Album of the Year” by Kerrang!, it stands out as a 21st century genre
landmark. As they went on to cumulatively sell over 2 million units, they
scorched stages with idols such as Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and more in addition to regularly making pivotal appearances at
Download Festival, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST, and beyond. Shogun, In Waves, Vengeance Falls and Silence In The Snow all soared to the Top 10 of the ARIA Chart as the band staunchly secured its place in the modern metal pantheon.
|REEL BIG FISH WITH SPECIAL GUESTS|
WEDNESDAY 4 DECEMBER CROWBAR, SYDNEY
THURSDAY 5 DECEMBER 170 RUSSELL, MELBOURNE
Reel Big Fish are one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. The band is distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic
shards of ska. The group cultivated an underground following that broke
into the mainstream in summer 1997 when their single Sell Out became a
modern rock radio and MTV favourite. Still fronted by original lead
singer and songwriter Aaron Barrett, they continue releasing albums and
touring relentlessly, playing more and more countries and bigger venues all over the world.
|ENTER SHIKARI WITH SPECIAL GUESTS|
THURSDAY 5 DECEMBER –
CROXTON BANDROOM, MELBOURNE
UK’s four piece, Enter Shikari, have toured the world too many times to count; including two area-sized runs in the UK, massive headline dates in Moscow & St Petersburg, Russia, and bar-room shows in Bangkok,
Thailand, as well as appearing at festivals as far removed from each
other as California’s Coachella and Hellfest, France.
Throughout their 13 year career, Enter Shikari have always maintained a firm socially conscious stance; supporting charities and organisations
such as the Music Venue Trust and Donate4Refugees (the band being
patrons of both), as well as Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and War Child.
ICE NINE KILLS WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
WEDNESDAY 4 DECEMBER – LANSDOWNE HOTEL, SYDNEY
THURSDAY 5 DECEMBER – STAY GOLD, MELBOURNE
Bridging the gap between horror and metal, Ice Nine Kills focused their 2018 Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart-topping release The Silver
Scream on classic films from the genre, while even enlisting some
guest vocal performances from the likes of Stranger Things’ Chelsea Tamridge and Sam Kubrick, grandson of Stanley Kubrick, who famously directed the iconic Stephen King adaption of The Shining.
Taking it a step further, the band created their own mini-horror series starring vocalist and horror afficionado Spencer Charnas to correlate with each of the album’s singles, injecting their own narrative into the
movies the tracks pay homage to.
