Don Broco has a track record of selecting exceptional supporting bands. Recently, they completed a sold-out European tour with Sleeping With Sirens and Ocean Grove opening for them, followed by a UK tour supported by Papa Roach and Dance Gavin Dance, which has also sold out. Therefore, it's no surprise that they are introducing two remarkable Australian bands to their upcoming May shows, which are expected to sell out soon!
Adelaide's Alt. is on fire, fresh from touring the country with Saosin and announcing the release date for their new album, Abeyance, in June. Alt.'s killer EP, Dysfunctional, featuring their signature blend of punk, pop, electronic, and alternative rock, has earned them the opportunity to perform with Northlane, Sleep Token, Karnivool, Cog, and sleepmakeswaves. As Alt. lists Don Broco as one of their primary influences, it is fitting that they join the festivities and deliver unforgettable performances at these shows.
Melbourne's Wayside is set to kick off this impressive lineup, which is representative of a recent trend in which Australian bands gain immense popularity overseas before receiving recognition and praise in their home country. Wayside has already accumulated an impressive 2.4M+ streams on Spotify and has been added to Apple Music's Essential New Rock playlist. Their upcoming second album, What Does Your Soul Look Like?, has been produced by Will Yip, the mastermind behind albums by Turnstile, Title Fight, and Citizen. Wayside's trajectory is so remarkable that it has caught the attention of industry experts, which is a testament to their immense talent and potential.
