Make Them Suffer Announce Suffer Forever Australian Tour With Special Guests Bury Tomorrow (UK), Spite (USA) + Bloom

After captivating audiences supporting Bring Me The Horizon and Sleep Token in sold out arenas across Australia in April, Perth metalcore outfit MAKE THEM SUFFER are set to wow audiences on home soil once again in 2024 with their highly anticipated Suffer Forever Australian headline tour this coming August and September, joined by friends BURY TOMORROW (UK), SPITE (USA) & BLOOM.

Opening proceedings on Friday 30 August in Brisbane, MAKE THEM SUFFER will bring their ferocious live performance to Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, before closing out in Fremantle on Saturday 7 September.

Following our European festival circuit, an amazing North American tour and of a life changing Australian tour in support of Bring Me The Horizon, we’ve been aching to follow up all these incredible opportunities with a headliner of our own. We can’t wait to bring our live show back home for all fans, new and old, and we can’t wait to take things to the next level. – Sean Harmanis, Make Them Suffer

Roaring back to life after the pandemic years, MAKE THEM SUFFER emerged in 2022 with their behemoth single Doomswitch, followed by a sold out North American run supporting Bad Omens, as well as their own completely sold out headline tour in Australia in support of the track.

Following on with new material in 2023, MAKE THEM SUFFER unleashed the vibrant and voracious track Ghost Of Me, with the group also appearing the same year supporting fellow Aussie juggernauts Parkway Drive in North America as part of the Monsters Of Oz Tour. And while 2024 has certainly not been quiet for MAKE THEM SUFFER, with a recent almost entirely sold out run supporting Bring Me The Horizon nationally along with Sleep Token and Daine, MAKE THEM SUFFER have also continued their ongoing sonic domination via their potent new 2024 release Epitaph; a single that dazzles in sharp, primal energy and gloss that also celebrates and welds the towering past, present and future in the dynamic MAKE THEM SUFFER legacy.

Set to perform overseas for a run of European and UK festivals this June, including Download Festival, Copenhell, Jera On Air and many more, MAKE THEM SUFFER will return home later this year armed with both new music and their insatiable live show that continues to gain international acclaim.

British metalcore giants BURY TOMORROW return after crushing Australian audiences on their first sold out Australian headline tour in 2023 supporting their seventh album, The Seventh Sun. The Seventh Sun stands as testament to the bonds and belief required to shape themselves a new reality, a new sound, and a new future expanding sonic palette platforms sky-high melodies, layered with textured atmosphere, cloaking an underlying savagery.

BURY TOMORROW‘s 2018 album Black Flame catapulted them into metal’s upper echelons. It was the band’s third consecutive UK Top 40 album, which saw them undertake an imposing tour, which culminated with a huge show at London’s iconic Roundhouse and their follow-up Cannibal, took the band another leap forward and that they can face any circumstances that comes their way.

SPITE, the decibel- and soul-crushing deathcore unit based out of Southern California, return to Australia with their lethal blend of death metal, metalcore, and neo-nu-metal after decimating Australian audiences on their debut shows supporting Thy Art Is Murder in 2022. Their 2017 release Nothing Is Beautiful on Rise Records drew comparisons to contemporaries like Thy Art Is Murder, Acacia Strain, and Suicide Silence. SPITE push against the boundaries of heavy music.

Sydney metalcore outfit BLOOM combine ferocity and impassioned lyricism, with their immersive catalogue centered on grief, love and exile. Releasing their brand new album Maybe In Another Life earlier this year, BLOOM flexed surging rhythms and memorable hooks, unforgettably snapshotting the group’s burgeoning strengths that has also led them to a massive regional tour supporting Polaris and national tours supporting the likes of Thornhill, Holding Absence, While She Sleeps, ERRA and Bad Omens.

YOU ME AT SIX Announce Last Ever Australian Shows With Special Guests HOLDING ABSCENCE

YOU ME AT SIX are one of the most beloved British rock bands of all time, having delivered multiple number 1 albums, dominating charts, racking up hundreds of millions of streams, selling out arenas and headlining festivals; and along the way crafting some of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of their generation. ‘Bite My Tongue’, Take on the World’, ‘Underdog’, ‘Beautiful Way’, ‘Room to Breathe’… the list of classics seems almost endless. The band’s revival of infectious and spirited pop-rock earned them a mass of fans worldwide, seeing them sell out show after show across the globe.

Choosing to bring such a storied 20-year career to an end cannot be easy. Doing so with your original line-up, on your own terms, and with the band members remaining best of friends is unheard of. But as the saying goes, go out at the top of your game and You Me At Six are certainly doing that.

Having shocked the rock world recently by announcing their imminent demise, the band are setting out on their greatest tour, delivering a career-spanning 2 hour set and determined to leave the fans with a truly special performance to remember them by. “We’ve got a plan to play songs from every single album and make it a real victory lap. And everyone feels like that. We’ve looked at the setlists and gone, ‘Cool – those five can stay, the rest is going to be stuff we haven’t done for years. We want to have 50 songs ready to go so that each night we can constantly mix it up and make it special.”

“When we started YMAS we were kids. We only ever wanted to travel and to experience life as a group of friends. We feel like on the eve of our 20th anniversary as a band, now is a good time to call time. “We’re in a fortunate position where our fans still want to see us live and come celebrate the life of this band. So that is what we will do for 2024 and 2025. We can’t wait to see our fans on the road.” explains frontman Josh Franceschi.

Joining You Me At Six for this monumental tour, as their very special guests, are Holding Absence, the band British rock bible Kerrang! labelled as British rock’s “new leading light”. Loudwire proclaims the Cardiff natives to be “the UK’s most exciting new rock band’’.

Known for their emotive lyricism and powerful soundscapes, Holding Absence will bring their own brand of thoughtful intensity to the tour, riding high on the back of their critically acclaimed latest album The Noble Art Of Self Destruction. The albumbrims with a level of energy, excitement and a sheer weight of feeling almost unparalleled in contemporary alternative music. The Guardian, in their 9.5/10 review of the album declared them “one of Britain’s most underrated bands” and predicted that “it is only a matter of time” before they are playing arenas and headlining festivals.

The tour promises to be a celebration of music and camaraderie. Emotion will be high in the room as You Me At Six bid us farewell one last memorable time and signing off on a stellar career, whilst Holding Absence take another step forward to cement their position as leaders of their genre.

[Review] Everything Everything / The Vaccines @ Forum Theatre, Melbourne 09/05/2024

Braving Melbourne’s rain-drenched streets this Thursday evening, a sold-out crowd packed their way into the Forum in anticipation of a cosier occasion, brimming with nostalgic British Rock royalty. Making their first return to Australian shores since 2018 and 2019 respectively, co-headliners Everything Everything and The Vaccines are the unexpected combination of uniquely daring, and familiarly sentimental, blurring the lines of what is recognised within the classic rock genre.

In a Melbourne-exclusive, crowds were blessed to witness Kitschen Boy, awakening the iconic venue and setting the tone for the night. The four exquisitely suited local lads absolutely astounded audiences with their high-energy, 80s sound, packed with captivating basslines and contemplative lyricism. Immediately placing the audience into the crescendo of a coming-of-age film, the band exudes an aura of youth and vulnerability, whilst remaining infectiously danceable.

The indie band’s front man Dylan Baddeley is the epitome of confidence. His on-stage persona flaunts a kind of smugness, paramount to the British trad rock genre. Through their heavy thumping set, I couldn’t help but wonder whether this really was the ‘supporting’ act for the night. Powering through their short-but-sweet discography, and barely stopping for air, the band landed on their recent 2024 single, The Perfect Excuse. The introspective lyricism paired with trademark dreamy, muffled vocals makes for a standout hit, and the theatrical peak of their freshly released EP, Now Arriving At Panic Station.

Adorned with golden Hollywood lighting, perfectly placed synth, and ingenious bass lines, the band’s all-consuming blanket of vintage rock ‘n roll truly bought the Forum to life. Closing with 2019 single Charlie Don’t Party, the audience was left on an absolute high; a final clashing instrumental paired with blinding strobe cementing Kitschen Boy as some of Melbourne’s finest talent.

Waltzing onstage as nonchalant as ever, English Art-Rock band Everything Everything were set to make their Aussie return, touring their 2024 LP Mountainhead. Veterans of the genre, Everything Everything are best known for their complex and abstract tracks, drawing heavy inspiration from Radiohead, Nirvana, and The Beatles. With such legendary foundations, the band construct incredibly high expectations – which were most certainly met in their hour-long set.

The most colourful act of the night, Everything Everything’s unbelievably intricate, perfectly mismatched instrumentalism was clear from the outset. Maintaining an upbeat and energetic tone with their music, whilst under such heavy physical composure, the band exudes an unmatched level of professionalism. Taking their fans through a captivating journey of their expansive discography, they made sure to touch upon all the hits; the flawless harmonies of The End of The Contender, hypnotic lyricism of Arch Enemy, and infectious groove of Pizza Boy, to name a few.  By the half-way point of the set, the band entirely stripped back their fourth wall, inviting the audience to sing along. The movement of frontman Jonathan Higgs becoming increasingly fluid and captivating.

Jonathan’s vocals, most impressively his signature falsetto, are a standout feature of Everything Everything’s music. The band’s intricate song writing is also credited to the multi-talented frontman, who shares the intention of “avoid[ing] cliche, or the cliches expected of white men with guitars from Manchester”. However, the band’s spotlight is not solely contained to the centre stage, with each individual musician shining independently of each other. Another standout of their live set is touring keyboardist and percussionist Peter Sené. Travelling with the band since 2012, Peter has cemented himself as an honorary member of the band, bringing infectious energy to every song with his power stance and enthusiastic headbanging.

Nearing their grand finale, Everything Everything still had so much ground to cover. Hits including Kemosabe, Enter the Mirror, and Night of the Long Knives keeping the crowd on their toes, and introducing new musical elements with every verse. With a set so incredibly full of life and energy, and each song fresher than the last, it is clear to see how Everything Everything has amassed such a cult-like following. Distant Past, a standout of the set, is a culmination of the band’s catalogue of genres. Meshing rap vocals, a dance beat, rock guitar, jazz horns, and electronic glitches, the band proves there is nothing out of their grasp in today’s musical landscape – making them undoubtedly some of the best in the business.

Introducing a band with a hit from one of the greatest rock artists of all time is quite the statement. But West London’s, The Vaccines, entrance to the McCartney classic, Live and Let Die, was a perfect fit. The eccentric Indie-Rock heavyweights, fronted by affectionately cocky singer-songwriter Justin Young, bring a modern edge to the British glam rock genre. Flaunting flared trousers, a blazer, and a pair of Windsor-style sunglasses, The Vaccines ooze coolness, before even a single note is played. Kicking the set off, the single Love To Walk Away from their 2024 album Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations had the room in a trance. Playing every song as if it were the finale, The Vaccines have a mesmerising way of personally involving every audience member in their high-voltage spectacle.  Making tactical eye contact with fans pressed against the barrier, it is clear the band have a following similarly ecstatic to that of early rock icons.

Waltzing though their impressive fourteen-year discography, the band barely paused for breath. Hits like I Can’t Quit flaunts their signature carefree feel, whilst clearly having the time of their lives revisiting Melbourne for the first time in six years. Hinting to their cheeky, unhinged side, the band transitioned into their ‘one for the animals’, Post Break-Up Sex. Dancing around the stage with fancy footwork, and pointing into the distance aimlessly, Justin makes the whole performer gig look easy. This is what diversifies The Vaccines from other rock bands, they are performing simply to have a fun and carefree time, with no hidden agendas or messages to push; and man, was the audience having fun!

Moving into a dreamier soundscape, Discount de Kooning (Last One Standing), bought with it a nostalgic energy, almost as if pulled from a teen romance film. Ringing guitars paired with continuous dazzling synth, and incredibly smooth flowing vocals gives the track a particular warmth. Lines like ‘Baby we should keep on dancing, I feel that something good is going to happen’ are uniform with the way The Vaccines consistently refresh audiences with happy positive music, yet not void of emotion.

Flying through hit after hit, The Vaccines reminded us of what flawless musicians they are, playing consistently dynamic tracks one after the other. After captivating thousands of minds for the last hour, the marathon of an evening closed out with the 2018 pop anthem All My Friends Are Falling In Love. Leaving the stage with the audience still dancing the night away, naturally, fans refused to leave, desperate for an encore. Once the house lights flickered on, and the glitz and glam faded, all we were left with was the memories of an incredibly fun night of rock music (and maybe a hangover or two!)

Bleeding Through Release Merciless New Single ‘Our Brand Is Chaos’

Southern California metalcore titans Bleeding Through have made their awaited return with a brand new single today, aptly titled Our Brand Is Chaos. The track is a ruthless new track is their first taste of something the band is currently brewing behind studio doors.

Commenting on the single, lead vocalist Brandan Schieppati states: “Our Brand Is Chaos is a statement. This is about our unrivaled support by our fans, friends and families. Together we are imperfectly perfect, pure chaos and all love. Let this be our anthem through dark times. Fuck with us and find out.

About Bleeding Through:
Destined for great achievement ever since their formation in 1999, Bleeding Through’s career has been a lengthy and star-studded one, dedicated to delivering a devastating, yet melodic and entrancing, infusion of metal and hardcore to fans worldwide. But, above all else, the band has stayed true to themselves. A testament to their momentous impact on the genre, the quintet has influenced several generations of artists since their inception and will no doubt continue to inspire fans and artists for many years to come.

Having already triumphantly reclaimed the spotlight after their biggest collective hurdle – the 2014 hiatus which many anticipated would be the end of the band’s career as a cohesive unit – Orange County quintet, Brandan Schieppati (vocals), Derek Youngsma (drums), Marta Peterson (keyboards), Brian Leppke (guitar), and Ryan Wombacher (bass), clearly know what it takes for a successful resurgence.

With five Top 50 US charting records, 100 million catalog streams, over 400k physical album sales, and tours with Slipknot, Motionless In White, Lamb of God, and Unearth under their belts, there’s no arguing with the Bleeding Through’s methods and widespread appeal.

Music’s prodigal sons have returned to retake their throne with the release of their latest single Our Brand is Chaos, and Bleeding Through have no intention of crowning a successor just yet.

DIRTY THREE Announce Third and Final Melbourne Show

Dirty Three are back and selling out, today announcing a third and final Melbourne show to share their rumbling, widescreen tour at The Forum on Sunday, 16th June. General on-sale for this cacophony of noise begins today at 2pm AEST.

This news comes on the heels of the announcement of a new album Love Changes Everything which arrives physically on Friday, 14th June and digitally on Friday, 28th June, andexpands on their signature, gritty instrumentals that pull you in like oil-painted landscapes.

The new album comes alongside a national tour with the ARIA award winning trio spreading the noise across the mountains and to the coast. Five years since their last visit, and 12 long years since their last national tour, the group will take in Melbourne’s RISING festival, Sydney, Canberra, Thirroul, Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane and Byron Bay to their manifest, bringing the same cathartic, sometimes violent and always spellbinding brand of music that they’ve brought to stages with Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Pavement, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, John Cale, Cat Power, PJ Harvey, The Pogues, and Cat Power. With many dates sold out or selling fast this fresh new tour certainly feels like those of the past.

Of the announcement Warren Ellis shares “What joy to kick off the tour for our new album Love Changes Everything in Melbourne Australia for the RISING Festival. Recorded in 5 days. Mixed in a year. Nothing has changed. Older and meaner, sadder and totally dangerous. Dirty Three are Thirty Two years old. Come blow out the candles and help us stick a knife in the cake.”

The Dirty Three – Warren Ellis, Mick Turner and Jim White – formed in Melbourne in 1992, to play with guitar drums and violin or viola, and within a couple years, they’d broken out – out of Australia, out of anything else they might have been inside of, and got worldwide. Over the next ten years, they toured over and over the planet, ceaseless like, and cut seven albums out along the way. After this, their unique style of play, fitted together like puzzle pieces, was decoupled, more often than not, and pieced together in many other, fruitful collaborations with many other esteemed talents. Over the past 20 years, they’ve gotten together a few times, renewed the vow, revved the engines and played some shows, or made an album. Like now.

For their first album in over a decade – yep, it’s been ten years since 2012’s Toward the Low Sun they flew in, got together and started playing. End of story. What else is there to say or do but that? Music’s their language, their true love; they never stop listening to that. And like the title says, Love Changes Everything.

The sounds of Dirty Three getting up to speed again include piano-plucked melodies ringing sweetly out over an undulating landscape flowing with guitar, drums, violin or viola, and synths, sudden descent from tumult of flights and heights into deep canyons of heart-struck adagio. And when received, and committed to “tape”, or whatever they used, this music has been untethered from its streams of consciousness and reconsidered as a recording; brought to bear through edits, overdubs and mixes, resequenced and made suite-like. Made into this album.

These lot were born to be as weathered as they are today. Time doesn’t matter. They make their gathered wisdom of the ages sing like something new every time. It renews. AndLove Changes Everything.

Dirty Three, ahoy!

Praise for Dirty Three

“Dirty Three are my favourite live band. No contest … I think it’s because they don’t have a singer … There are three musicians working together, one no less important than the other and well, you can get lost in all that. Their music washes over you and you’re away … When I watch them, they ignite something….They’re utterly unique and absolutely world class.” – Nick Cave

“Every time I see the Dirty Three, they make me cry.” – Cat Power

“I remember when I first heard Dirty Three, they were like nothing else around; an instrumental band with a violinist who played like Hendrix, and epic songs that tore at the very fibre of your being.” – Zan Rowe

“Their songs, you know, maybe saved someone’s life. They’re one of the world’s greatest living bands without a shadow of a doubt … it speaks straight to your heart.” – Jen Cloher

“It’s impossible to find flaw with the performance, though its x factor is something collectively felt. A kind of accruing, song by fiery song, of irrefutable proof as to how truly great this band is.” – The Guardian

“For two hours, Dirty Three were the greatest band on any planet in any universe.” – FBi Radio
