TesseracT

^^

When: Saturday 15th September
Where: Metro Theatre

Their phenomenal success over the last three years in support of the Polaris album saw them play worldwide tours as both headliners and as special guests for the likes of Megadeth, Meshuggah, The Devin Townsend Project and Gojira. ‘It's going to be a busy 2018! We're very excited to announce our return to Australia in September. Our last tour there was an amazing success and experience and we look forward to getting back to the Southern Hemisphere to play for our Aussie fans. We're touring with the natives, Circles...a great band who bring a lot to this tour,' said Daniel Tompkins, TesseracT lead vocalist. TesseracT's fourth studio album, Sonder, will be released on Friday, April 20 via KScope and showcases perfectly why they remain pioneering leaders of the ever-evolving metal scene. Sitting outside the bounds of any genre specificity, TesseracT are an unstoppable force of off-kilter riffs, soaring melodies, bending grooves and disorientating atmospherics. Adding significant firepower to the band's arsenal, Sonder blends the harsh abrasiveness of “One” (2011) and progressive ethereal elements of Altered State (2013) with the accessibility of Polaris (2015). Joining TesseracT on all shows are Melbourne progressive powerhouse, Circles. Leading the way in the evolution of Australian heavy music, Circles look set to take on the world. Intricate and emotional yet crushingly heavy, the band continually expand what is achievable within rock, metal and the djent sub-genre. With a growing global fanbase and epic sets at some of the world's most prestigious heavy and prog festivals, Circles are a perfect fit as TesseracT's special guests. Prepare for a night of sonic wizardry as TesseracT and Circles take you on an aural journey like no other. This is one event of sensory overload you simply must experience.

Wolf Alice

^^

When: Sunday 23rd September
Where: Metro Theatre

‘Wolf Alice are not just another indie band'. NME's statement about the North London quartet is a simple one, but it captures the powerful waves they're making both in studio and live. Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that they will return to Australia this September to perform headline shows with plenty of bite! The band's roots go back to 2010, when vocalist Ellie Roswell and guitarist Joff Oddie came together to make tunes inflected with a mix of rock, folk, grunge and shoegaze. Joel Amey (drums) and Theo Ellis (bassist) completed the group a few years later, culminating in the release of their debut EP Blush. That momentum continued with the group's debut album My Love is Cool (2015), a critical and commercial success. The gold-certified release hit #2 on the UK charts, garnered multiple nominations including the Mercury Prize and Grammys, and led to the band claiming the NME Award for Best Live Band. Last year's second record Visions of a Life, recorded in Los Angeles, took things to new heights on stellar tracks including the slow-burning ‘Don't Delete The Kisses', and ‘Beautifully Unconventional' with its beast of a groove. Fittingly describing the album but also apt for the band's power onstage, Rolling Stone asserted ‘The stakes are high, and the payoffs are real.' Live is where Wolf Alice's combination of bite and beauty is most strongly felt. The powerhouse quartet have dominated their own headline shows and supported Queens Of The Stone Age in the US and will support both Liam Gallagher in the UK and the Foo Fighters in Europe in the coming months, before embarking on a string of northern summer festivals. They've found something of another home down here, smashing Falls Festival in 2014, Splendour the following year – including a pair of rip-roaring Sydney and Melbourne sideshows – and 2018's Laneway. In amongst all this, Wolf Alice have contributed to iconic soundtracks including 2016's Ghostbusters and T2 Trainspotting. If there's a soundtrack though that's simple yet dynamic, brash yet beautiful, it's the one that the band have been carving out for themselves. You won't want to miss out on these guys when they hit our shores again for this latest headline run!
