The Contotionist & SikTh

^^

When: Friday 4th May
Where: Manning Bay, University of Sydney

American modern progressive metal innovators The Contortionist return to Australia as part of their Clairvoyant Tour, joined by special guests UK djent-metal pioneers SikTh - who will be making their first ever Australian appearances! Critics and fans admire their intelligent approach to the crushing riffs of tech-metal, which becomes more vibrant with elements of ambitious post rock and jazzy / fusion-infused virtuosity. Even when angular riffs, odd time signatures, and devastating breakdowns give way to hypnotic, ethereal, and trancelike musical meditations, The Contortionist are never lacking in total power. SikTh are one of the Great British pioneers whom have shaped heavy music. The Watford mathcore sextet devised their own Morse code of metal – ultimately leading to the birth of the djent metal almost a decade later. It’s more clear than it’s ever been that SikTh were way ahead of their time and with one of the best albums of 2017 now under their belt in The Future Is Whose Eyes?..The djent-metal kings have returned!

When: Tuesday 22nd May
Where: Enmore Theatre

"Sweden’s legendary hard rock band EUROPE, best known for their Worldwide 1986 Smash Hit “The Final Countdown”, have announced a run of five Australian dates in May 2018. This will be the first time the band has toured Australia in their 35 year career! The band recently entered the famed Abbey Road Studio’s in London to record their 11th Studio album entitled “Walk The Earth”, with grammy award winning producer Dave Cobb. An album retaining the classic Europe melodies while pushing the boundaries of experimentation - recorded with equipment used by The Beatles and Pink Floyd at Abbey Road, “Walk The Earth” was released Worldwide on October 20th 2017. Featuring the classic lineup of Joey Tempest (Lead Vocals), John Norum (Guitar), Mic Michaeli (Keyboards), John Leven (Bass Guitar) and Ian Haugland (Drums), EUROPE have achieved total Worldwide sales in excess of 25 million, with the 1986 mega-hit “The Final Countdown” reaching No1 in 25 countries. The band’s live set will feature all their hits together with fan’s favorites from their studio albums. On touring Australia Joey Tempest adds “We are so excited to be touring Australia for the first time! It’s something we always wanted to do, but we just couldn’t make the schedules work before. But now…its going to happen and we can finally hook up with our friends down under!” Originally formed in 1979 in a small suburb on the outskirts of Stockholm, heavily influenced by British rock giants such as Thin Lizzy, UFO, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple, the band begin to formulate their own sound. After winning a rock band competition in 1982, where first prize was a recording contract and with a name change to EUROPE, the World was soon at their feet. After the release of their first album, the self titled ‘Europe’ in 1983, the band signed with Sony Epic Records, New York and in 1984 their second album “Wings Of Tomorrow” set the path for future World wide success. With their aforementioned third release, “The Final Countdown”, the band had arrived. That album spent 70 weeks in the US Billboard top 100 and produced four top 40 singles. With continued touring and sell out concerts all over the World the band released two more albums, 1988’s “Out Of This World” and 1991’s “Prisoners In Paradise”, but after 10 years of solid recording and touring and the changing music scene that put “Classic Hard Rock” on the back burner the band decided it was time to take a break. After enjoying the 90's releasing solo albums and touring in other constellations, in 2004 the band met up again after realising their journey was no where near complete. The original line up reformed and released album number six “Start From The Dark” the same year. The band retained the old fans and at the same time regaining new ones. The coming years saw constant touring with headline festival appearances together with vast critical acclaim for their new album releases - “Secret Society” in 2006, “Last Look At Eden” in 2009 and “Bag Of Bones” in 2012. 2015 saw the release of “War Of Kings” which was later awarded a prestigious "Classic Rock” Award in the UK. This record put the band back at the top of their game. The album’s success saw the band tour the USA twice, the first time the band had been there in 10 years, together with other territories, some brand new and some back for the first time since the 80’s. 2016 saw the 30th Anniversary of The Final Countdown and to celebrate the band played a series of special SOLD OUT concerts around Europe where they played the album in it’s entirety for the first time ever, with the London Roundhouse concert being filmed and recorded for the DVD / Audio CD release, which hit the shops in July.

Sydney’s timeless guitar pop trio DMA’S have followed up the recent success of new single In The Air with the announcement of a huge national tour to support the release of their sophomore record, For Now, out worldwide on Friday 27 April via I OH YOU. As they take in the biggest tour of their career to date, the band will hit the Enmore Theatre in Sydney for a show that will further cement their status as one of Australia’s best live acts, as well as launching the much-anticipated For Now into the stratosphere.

They’ve headlined sold out tours globally and played all the major festivals around the world including Coachella, Glastonbury, Splendour In The Grass, Lollapalooza, Laneway and Fuji Rock Festival – to name a few. Locally, Hills End debuted at #8 on the ARIA Album Chart and earned the band a 2016 ARIA nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist. Singles including ‘Delete’ (certified Gold in Australia), ‘Lay Down’, ‘Too Soon’ and ‘Step Up The Morphine’ adorned the band with countless praise the world over. In the same year, DMA’S covered Cher’s classic ‘Believe’ for triple j’s Like A Version – the cover becoming the most streamed Like A Version to date and taking out the #6 spot on the 2016 Hottest 100; making it the highest ever position for a Like A Version on the countdown.

Recorded between The Lady Hampshire in Sydney’s inner west and The Grove Studio with producer Kim Moyes (of The Presets), the track has combined with In The Air to provide a tantalising taste of their new album For Now. DMA’S will be ably supported on this tour by Brisbane indie-pop star Hatchie, who’s first two breakout singles ‘Try’ and ‘Sure’ have pricked up ears throughout the world. “Where DMA's truly succeed (…) is in forging an emotional connection with their audience, finding beauty in the mundane and occasionally making you feel like you can take on the world.” - Sydney Morning Herald. “Whether it be their raucous choruses, or stripping it back to just an acoustic guitar and singing, a DMA’s live show is something that needs to be seen to be believed.” - Beat. “There is much to savour…” - Q. '…the euphoria they evoke at this packed show is undeniably special.' - NME.

Eden

When: Saturday 23rd June
Where: Metro Theatre

HOT TIPPED BY LORDE, THE IRISH ELECTRO SENSATION HEADS TO AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND. Dublin-based neo-electronic, new-age pop act EDEN has announced the extension of his vertigo world tour to now play Australia and New Zealand this June following sold out dates across the U.S. Audiences can expect the debut of his album “vertigo” and his impressive back catalogue being performed for the first time. What started as the dance-oriented Eden Project morphed into something different for Irish singer/songwriter Jonathan Ng. The classically trained musician, who, as a teen grew tired of school band and orchestra began incorporating more instrumentation into his songwriting, unveiling his first EP rebranded as EDEN, “End Credits” released in 2015 at only age 20. The year following, alt-pop icon Lorde complimented his track ‘sex’, asking him to ‘please keep making lovely things’ timed with his debut tour to Canada and the U.S. EDEN’s moving, sentimental music feels completely present, relevant and real. Perfectly placed at the intersection of pop-EDM, his introspective tone and lyrical journeys on contemplation drips with emotion, taking in influence as diverse as Paul McCartney, Frank Ocean, City and Colour and Skrillex. EDEN’s debut album “vertigo” is heartfelt and intimate and is slated to place the newcomer on the mainstream radar with a world tour throughout North America, Europe and now Australia and New Zealand – an opportunity not to be missed.
