Northlane

^^

When: Friday 11th October
Where: UNSW Roundhouse

Sydney metallers, Northlane, announce the upcoming release of their fifth studio album, Alien, out August 2 via UNFD. For a band that have traditionally focused on wider issues in the outside world, Alien is easily the most personal statement of their career. "I was raised in hell but I made it out," says Northlane vocalist Marcus Bridge. "Raised in a place I shouldn't have been, and no child should have been. But I've been able to break free." Remarkably, there is hope to be found, particularly on first single, Bloodline. "Bloodline was one of the first songs that came about in the writing process for the album. When we were trying to decide what we wanted to write about, we decided early on that we wanted to keep the album pretty personal. I wanted to tell the stories of my upbringing and the ups and downs that come along with that." says Marcus Bridge. He adds, "It talks about that idea of growing up in a broken home despite all odds and what might be expected of someone who grows up like that. You are able to be what people think of you and break out of that spiral, that terrible world. For me, that's a mix of telling the story simple, but then it also tells some parts of my story in really fine detail. For example, the second verse goes into a lot of moments that I actually remember growing up and these landmarks- all these things I remember seeing. This song is a perfect way to sum up the album and also be the first toe in the water to be able to tell this story." Once again, Northlane teamed up with director Jason Eshraghian on the Bloodline video, who they've been collaborating with since 2014. Jason is best known for his cinematic use of visual effects and layered storytelling. The video follows the abusive relationship between a father and his son. Marcus says, "It was a pretty clear choice to work with Jason, who has done all our videos since I've joined the band." "We've grown as a band together with Jason. He understands the stories we're trying to tell through our videos. When it came down to the more personal subject, I don't think it would have been possible to do it with someone we hadn't worked with before because I don't know if I would have felt comfortable having someone that we hadn't worked with before telling this story and someone that doesn't really know me and know how I want to tell this story. "Jason delivered again, and this video is one of my favourite videos that I have ever done. It goes into some fine detail once again about that environment of growing up around parents who use drugs, violent parents and all that stuff that a lot of people do deal with that maybe don't feel comfortable talking about. This video is going to make you feel pretty uncomfortable, but I think it's a story that isn't really told often enough." October will see them returning to Australian home soil for their national headline tour supported by Counterparts, Silent Planet and Void of Vision.

Blitzing the East Coast on his sold out tour last year, Evans will bring his infectious country sound, signature loop pedal, and “phenomenal solo set designed to dispatch any misconception that a singer needs background musicians to get an audience on their feet and dancing” (Rolling Stone).

Global smash ‘Kiss Somebody’ saw the rising star hit No. 1 on the US Country Chart, reach platinum status in Australia, and tally 66 million streams on Spotify alone.

Proving to be an international force in music, Evans has sold out out venues globally, the seasoned performer touring with the likes of Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson and Dan + Shay. He performed on America’s The Bachelorette (ABC), and has torn up stages at some of the world’s biggest music festivals, including C2C UK and Australia’s largest country-roots event, CMC Rocks QLD.
