After last week’s tour announcement we sat down to chat to Saliva front-man BOBBY AMARU about the excitement of their first visit down-under.

After acquiring front man Bobby Amaru in 2011 (replacing original frontman Josey Scott), Saliva became infused with new blood, energy, and spirit. The same energy launched Saliva’s career in 2001 with the release, ‘Every Six Seconds’ containing the hits, “Click Click Boom” and 2002 Grammy nominated, “Your Disease.” Saliva’s in-your-face, anthemic writing style continued with ‘Back in to Your System’ with hits “Always,” “Raise Up,” and the Nikki Sixx co-written, “Rest In Pieces.” In 2007 the track “Ladies and Gentlemen“ was the official theme song for the WWEPPVWrestleMania 23 and gained the band massive global exposure.
