Polaris Australian Regional Tour 2024 With Special Guests Ocean Grove, Bloom & Inertia

Destroy All Lines & Resist presents

POLARIS
AUSTRALIAN REGIONAL TOUR 2024

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
OCEAN GROVE
BLOOM & INERTIA

POLARIS are primed to return to Australian stages, today announcing a massive regional tour this June and July alongside special guests OCEAN GROVE and on select dates BLOOM and INERTIA.

Kicking off in Cairns on June 27, POLARIS will electrify stages across Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria, closing out on July 28 in Frankston.

“We’re super excited to be heading back out to Regional parts of Australia this June / July.

It’s been quite a few years since we’ve been to some of these places and we’re visiting some new towns also which is going to be really nice.

I feel very lucky to be able to visit so many different areas of our beautiful country and I love being able to play our music to people that don’t often get tours coming through their towns.” Jamie Hails, Polaris

Fear and its potent ability to divide and unite us beats at the core of POLARIS’s third album Fatalism, with the 2023 full length debuting at #1 on the ARIA Charts, and also garnering nominations for Australian Album of the Year at the 2023 J Awards and for the 2023 Australian Music Prize. Steeped in angst alongside underlying catharsis, Fatalism organically builds on the bleak imagery and hard-hitting soundscapes permeating Polaris’s previous release, 2020’s The Death of Me, while also galvanizing the Sydney five-piece’s trademark blend of melodic metalcore, lush post rock, electronic flourishes and beyond.

POLARIS had already firmly established their place as a fixture in the Australian heavy landscape via their first two albums, 2020’s ARIA Award-nominated The Death Of Me and 2017’s The Mortal Coil, which debuted in the Australian Top 10. Having been awarded a laundry list of accolades along with sold-out headline tours of Australia and previous tours across the globe, including headlining iconic Australian venues such as Fortitude Music Hall, Hordern Pavilion & Margaret Court Arena in September 2023 on their Fatalism album tour.

2024 will also see POLARIS appearing at multiple international festivals and supporting Beartooth for an epic Europe and UK tour starting in October.

Aussie fusion mavericks OCEAN GROVE are no strangers to merging rock, metal, grunge, hip-hop, Brit-pop influences and beyond, pioneering their own signature genre: Oddworld Music. Hailing from Melbourne, OCEAN GROVE released their third full-length album Up In The Air Forever in 2022 to critical acclaim, and have since been on a global assault, bringing their dynamic live show to audiences around the world. Recently appearing at Alpha Wolf’s curated CVLTFEST earlier this year, OCEAN GROVE also supported Don Broco across the UK in late 2023.

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 national tours supporting the likes of Thornhill, Holding Absence, While She Sleeps, ERRA, Ocean Grove and Bad Omens.

One of Australia’s most exciting alternative acts, Sydney’s INERTIA traverse the darkest corners of metal music, coated in elements of dark pop and soul and sprinklings of emo pop. Since emerging in 2017, INERTIA now sit faced towards their debut album, with their recent single Dominion capturing the group’s nuanced take on immersive existensialism beating at the core of their equally compelling live show, as seen alongside Dayseeker, Holding Absence, Caskets, Thousand Below and more.

With 22 dates locked and loaded across regional Australia this June and July, do not miss this all-Aussie heavy assault!

CRADLE OF FILTH and INFECTED RAIN Announce Australian Invasion September 2024 Tour

A ThePhoenix.au & Metropolis Touring Presentation

CRADLE OF FILTH and INFECTED RAIN Australian Invasion September 2024 Tour

It has been many years since CRADLE OF FILTH last darkened our horizon and we can now hail their return this September to commemorate the release of their “Best Of” Live album, Trouble & Their Double.

Belched from the fiery depths into the rustic charms of the Witch County, Suffolk, UK, CRADLE OF FILTH are undisputed giants of the heavy metal realm. Imperious purveyors of a perennially unique strain of dark, dastardly and wilfully extreme metal, with deep roots in the worlds of gothic horror and occult curiosity. Led by the inimitable Dani Filth, the band has weathered decades of tumult and trial, earning a formidable reputation as both a singular creative force and one of the most riotously entertaining live bands the metal world has ever produced.

Thus far into their distinguished and highly influential career CRADLE OF FILTH continue to show their ferocious efficacy with no signs of slowing down as they maintain their unparalleled fusion of gothic grandeur and blackened metal. Filth’s influence is felt far and wide as Dani recently teamed up for a collaborative song with pop megastar Ed Sheeran, which is set to appear on their upcoming album.

No doubt CRADLE OF FILTH will ignite the flames of anticipation with their impending arrival as they descend on our land for a trip through the darkness as we embrace the chaos and bear witness to their infernal live presence.

And this time they will not be coming alone, rapidly rising Moldovans, INFECTED RAIN. will be chaperoned by the innovators of extreme for their debut tour of Australia.

INFECTED RAIN are led by the enigmatic, charismatic and multi-talented Lena Scissorhands, who has cemented her place as one of the greatest frontwomen in Metal. INFECTED RAIN accent the introspective musical journey as they wind between effectively-placed progressive, electronic and even nu-metal features amid ethereal passages, bolstered by subterranean heaviness and rhythmic grooves topped by Scissorhands’ hair-raising screams and haunting vocals.

CRADLE OF FILTH and INFECTED RAIN September 2024 Australian Tour Dates

Tuesday 24th – PERTH, Metropolis Fremantle

Wednesday 25th – ADELAIDE, The Gov

Friday 27th – MELBOURNE, Northcote Theatre

ABOUT THE AMITY AFFLICTION:

Since emerging in 2008 with their debut Severed Ties, Metal Core powerhouse The Amity Affliction have consistently delivered. They’ve clocked four No. 1 records, earned multiple Gold and Platinum certifications in their home country and enjoyed a string of Top 30-charting albums on Billboard. Throughout their career, The Amity Affliction have remained a featured attraction on some of the biggest festivals in the world — from Download UK, Reading and Leeds, Wacken, Vans Warped Tour, Rock am Ring, Rock im park, Graspop, Sonic Temple, Welcome to Rockville, Hellfest, Slam Dunk, Jera on Air, and more! The band has sold out countless headline treks and have hit the road with everyone from A Day to Remember to Motionless in White to Silverstein to Sum 41 to Beartooth to PVRIS.

ABOUT ICE NINE KILLS:

Returning to Australia for the first time in 5 years, ICE NINE KILLS make music both timeless and timely, mixing metal, hardcore, and punk with accessible power. New hard-rock-and-horror anthems like “Hip to be Scared,” “Assault & Batteries,” “Take Your Pick,” and “Farewell II Flesh” demonstrate Spencer’s fascination with fright, pop culture obsession, and his expertise with inescapably wicked melodic hooks and clever twists of phrase.

ABOUT WE CAME AS ROMANS:

We Came As Romans’ initial ascent was quick and assured, catapulting the band (who met as teens) into the hearts of diehard fans immersed in the metalcore, post-hardcore, and Warped Tour subculture. Their hook-filled heavy music carried an uplifting message and connects with even greater urgency live.

ABOUT HEAVENSGATE:

Visceral in name and nature, HEAVENSGATE have hit the ground running with no signs of slowing down. With their widely regarded debut EP ‘AND ALL I LOVED, I LOVED ALONE’, HEAVENSGATE continues to expand on the strong foundations set ahead of them with a growing fanbase.

TROPHY EYES ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN HEADLINE TOUR 2024

TROPHY EYES
ANNOUNCE
AUSTRALIAN HEADLINE TOUR 2024

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
BOSTON MANOR & TOWNS

Australia’s finest purveyors of melodic noise Trophy Eyes have had a busy year already. After the success of their ARIA Top 10 release “Suicide and Sunshine” in 2023, the band then headed on a capital city run promoting the album, selling out shows right around the country. This was followed up with a raucous regional Australian victory lap with their mates Dear Seattle, then finally the band managed to take one deep long breath.

I guess they knew what 2024 had in store for them. The band are currently half way through a sold out European tour, their first in the territory since early 2023 and one which is giving the Northern Hemisphere an overdue first taste of the album live. They then fly direct to the US for an extended run of headline shows, with the tour being a proper circumnavigation of the US starting in Brooklyn and ending in Baltimore 5 weeks later.

Trophy Eyes know they can’t let fans overseas have all the fun, so it’s with immense pleasure and more than a little excitement that they announce their only headline tour of Australia for 2024, a lightning run with a storming support bill of international guests and mates Boston Manor (UK), and with Adelaide’s Towns in the opening slot. Full tour details below.

Boston Manor recently released their new single ‘Container‘. It marks the first new music from the band in 2024 as they make their return in impassioned and ambitious mood. Full of thrust and intention, ‘Container’ is rich with depth and groove, offering an early signpost to where their sound is taking them next: from parallel universes to personal growth, vivid dreamscapes to raw grief.

Towns will continue to deliver their good-time vibes, having recently joined fellow Adelaideans Teenage Joans on a sold out co-headline tour, they also hit the road for their own headline shows and supporting Ruby Fields, playing to packed out venues and bringing the high octane energy they are known for.

Trophy Eyes and friends will see you in August.

GRETA VAN FLEET Announce Australia & NZ Tour

Grammy Award Winning U.S. Rock act GRETA VAN FLEET are set to make their highly anticipated return to Australian and New Zealand shores this August for the first time since 2019. GRETA VAN FLEET will open their tour at Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane on August 21st before heading to Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on August 24th and the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on August 27th before jumping over the ditch to Auckland to play Spark Arena on August 30th.

Tickets for all shows go on sale on Friday April 19 at 1pm.  

Artist Fan Club pre-sale begins Tuesday April 16 at 12pm.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning Wednesday April 17 at 12pm.

Australia and New Zealand are directly in the firing line of the hugely successful Starcatcher World Tour! The tour, produced by Live Nation, saw the band hit the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York, The Forum in Los Angeles as well as London’s OVO Arena Wembley. The tour has seen them roll through the U.S., Europe and U.K. before heading back to the U.S. then on to the festival scene in Europe and Japan before landing in Australia.

The Frankenmuth, Michigan natives formed in 2012, consisting of brothers – vocalist Josh Kiszka, guitarist Jake Kiszka and bassist/keyboardist Sam Kiszka – who were then joined by drummer Danny Wagner. The band announced their arrival on the scene in a massive way in 2017 with their EP From The Fires, which won Best Rock Album at the 61st Grammy Awards.

Their meteoric rise continued with the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album The Battle at Garden’s Gate which was released in 2021 and debuted at #1 Billboard Rock Album, #1 Billboard Hard Rock Album, #1 Billboard Vinyl Album, #2 Billboard Top Album Sales and in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200. 2023’s Starcatcher album also crashed into the Billboard Top 200 chart at #8 which has seen GRETA VAN FLEET entrenched as a fully-fledged Rock Powerhouse!

Starcatcher was written and recorded by the band – alongside Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile). Recorded at the legendary RCA Studios in Nashville, the band utilized the large recording room to capture the pure energy of their world-renowned live performances.

Throughout the ten-song collection the band explores the duality of fantasy versus reality and the contrast between light and darkness. “We had this idea that we wanted to tell these stories to build a universe,” says Danny Wagner. “We wanted to introduce characters and motifs and these ideas that would come about here and there throughout our careers through this world.”

The band took multiple concepts from critically acclaimed sophomore album The Battle at Garden’s Gate and brought them into Starcatcher, although Sam Kiszka’s take on the new record’s big ideas hint instead at new beginnings. “When I imagine the world of Starcatcher, I think of the cosmos,” he says. “It makes me ask a lot of questions, like ‘Where did we come from?’ or ‘What are we doing here?’ But it’s also questions like, ‘What is this consciousness that we have, and where did it come from?’”

With Starcatcher the band has definitely managed to capture their live energy in the recording studio.

They have performed across multiple continents, sold over 3.5 million records, one million tickets worldwide and amassed well over 2 billion streams! They have performed on late night television shows such as “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” whilst dazzling live audiences at major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Coachella, Pinkpop and Rock Werchter.

MUNICIPAL WASTE Announce ”Wasted” July 2024 Australian Tour

MUNICIPAL WASTE finally announce their triumphant and probably somewhat inebriated return to Australia shores for the first time since 2013!

Formed in Richmond, Virginia, the homeland of the American Civil War, Thrash Metal Crossover party dudes Municipal Waste rose from the salty remains of a New Years Eve Keg Party in 2000/2001, in which they were later blamed for inciting a minor riot. MUNICIPAL WASTE have uncompromisingly stuck to their guns for over 20 years as the hard-partying and even harder-hitting torchbearers of 21st Century Crossover Thrash Metal. After staggering on to the scene with their 2003 debut album Waste ‘Em All, MUNICIPAL WASTEhave transformed from a cult favourite into metal mainstays for a generation by reviving the Thrash scene.

MUNICIPAL WASTE are 7 albums (and a string of EP’s) deep into a career that shows no slowing down, no matter how hard they party, in fact if anything their career is on an upward trajectory! Metal Hammer christened 2007’s The Art of Partying one of “The 50 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Ever,” whilst 2017’s Slime and Punishment crashed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, while they have also sold-out countless shows on multiple continents and piled up tens of millions of streams in the process.

Tony Foresta [vocals], Ryan Waste [guitar], Philip “Landphil” Hall [bass], Dave Witte [drums], and Nick Poulos [guitar] promise to deliver an uncompromising, beer drenched, sweat inducing, high-octane audio-visual extravaganza while their relentless riffage, infectious energy will ensure the pit is whipped into a frenzy!

“We hope you walk away with some bloody ears, blown speakers, pi*sed off parents, black eyes, and a healthy distrust of authority,” says Tony.

Australian fans will be able to shake off the Winter blues and jump head-first into one of the year’s biggest parties as MUNICPAL WASTE heat up Australia in July! Cheers!
