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.

Morgan Evans World Tour

^^

When: Thursday 17th October & Friday 18th October
Where: Enmore Theatre

Nashville-via-Newcastle chart-topping singer-songwriter, Morgan Evans, has revealed his biggest ever Australian dates as part of his World Tour. 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). With the success of his debut album ‘THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO’ out now, Evans continues to prove why he is one of Billboard’s 2018 Country Artists To Watch. 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. Follow-up party anthem ‘Day Drunk’ took over the Aussie charts, hitting No. 1 on The Music Network’s Hot 100 All-Genres Chart, staying atop The Music Network’s Country Airplay Chart for 25 weeks. His newly-released single - ‘Young Again’ – is a feel-good track blasting a message of living in the moment and having fun; a sentiment that is sure to define his upcoming shows. 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.

Montaigne

^^

When: Friday 29th November
Where: Metro Theatre

READY is not just Montaigne's most anthemic single to date, it's an anthem with something to say. "I was so reluctant to take ownership of it at first was so far I've been the self deprecating tortured artist who's talked about my neurosis, whereas this song is 'I believe in myself' and 'I'm ready to utilise my abilities'. That's something I've been working hard to finesse. "Putting a song out about self worth now, I'm in a place where I do think that much about myself, I work really hard every day to be really good at what I do, I've earned that confidence.” There's also a Trojan Horse factor buried in the lyrics of Ready. Sure it's booming pop song on the surface with that killer motivational chorus to remind yourself to stay on the grind ("I think I'm ready and I'm at the edge of the cliff, so let's begin..") and some seriously brilliant vocals. But in the song's final verse Montaigne sings "take me to the final stage, gimme gimme equal wage, I am no longer afraid.”

Lewis Capaldi

^^

When: Thursday 2nd January
Where: Hordern Pavilion

As his blockbuster debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent ticks over to 1 billion streams worldwide and enters its fifth week at the top of the UK charts, Scottish singer- songwriter Lewis Capaldi has wasted no time in announcing his return to Australia and New Zealand with three towering 2020 shows in Sydney,Melbourne and Auckland. Capaldi has had a sensational 18 months in which his lovelorn songcraft and mind-blowing vocal abilities have bewitched listeners both at home and abroad. Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent is the UK’s fastest selling debut of 2019 so far and tickets to his March 2020 tour of the UK and Ireland have disappeared within seconds of going on sale. Still only 22, the sometimes heartbroken, often cheeky Scot’s signature tune is the extraordinary ‘Someone You Loved’. As the perfect showcase for his sweeping, emotive and unbelievably powerful voice, the song has proved a tonic to the jangled emotions of music lovers worldwide, especially here in Australia. Capaldi’s other singles have also managed to hit every nerve on the way through. In fact, his debut track ‘Bruises’, written as he recovered from a particularly nasty breakup, went absolutely bananas upon release in 2017 as it clocked up 28 million Spotify streams and made him the fastest unsigned artist ever to reach 25 million plays on the platform. A prodigy from the get-go, Capaldi grew up in Bathgate – a small town near Glasgow – and was busy learning the drums and guitar by the age of two. Naturally, by the time he was nine, a young Lewis was seen sneaking into local pubs and blowing patrons away with his astonishing talents. From there he honed his craft, letting his brothers record collection (filled with the best of Nirvana and Bob Dylan) influence him and building his own musical sensibilities. His penchant for sparse, emotionally resonant songcraft attracted attention as he distributed demo recordings of himself playing in a bathroom, eventually catching the ears of a curious local scene. Flash forward a couple of years and we will find Lewis Capaldi hitting Australia in the middle of an absolute hot streak. Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent outsold the rest of the UK top 10 combined upon release last month also saw him nominated for The Brit’s Critics Choice award.

^^

When: Saturday 14th March
Where: Metro Theatre

Four decades on, as we come towards the end of another turbulent decade, momentous change is once again afoot in Britain and the world. Can we face the next decade with the optimism and futuristic brightness that flooded the 1980s, and will there be a new cultural birth that will change music, fashion and society? The 1980 Tour reminds us that these things are possible. Both ‘Vienna’ and ‘Visage’ were the sound of the future… and yet still sound unearthly, romantic, impossibly beautiful and full of promise. Brought to life by Midge Ure and Band Electronica, this is the very first time in the 40 years since it was made that the ‘Vienna’ album will be performed in its entirety. It is also the first time that many of the songs from the debut Visage album will be played live. The music will be performed in a stage setting designed to reflect the atmosphere and ambience the albums deserve.
