💀 Tour Re-Announcement 💀
With a confirmed trans-taxman bubble, eased venue restrictions and some definitive light at the end of the tunnel, we are ecstatic to re-announce the first ever Australian headline tour by Kiwi alt-metal giants, Devilskin. The band has been tearing their way across New Zealand in recent months to amazing reviews and have proven to be one of the must see metal acts in the world. Joining Devilskin, for the first time ever in Australia, are Polynesian metal act, Shepherds Reign who, on the back of millions of views of their release, "Le Manu", are earning a reputation as a fierce live band that needs to be seen to be believed.
Rounding out the line up are Brisbane locals, These Four Walls and from Sydney, Bad Moon Born.
This promises to be an amazing night of heavy music with four quality acts representing that Anzac spirit.
Please note the following venue changes:
The Melbourne show has moved from Stay Gold to Max Watts.
The Adelaide show has moved from The Gov to Lion Arts Factory.
All existing tickets remain valid for the new dates and venues. Please hold on to your tickets. If you are unable to attend the new dates, you may seek a refund from your point of purchase (some processing conditions may apply).
Hard hitting Kiwi band DEVILSKIN released their critically acclaimed third studio album RED in April.
Having stunned Australian crowds on tours with HALESTORM and SLASH Ft. Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators and appearing on Download Australia in 2019 DEVILSKIN are on their way for a headline tour in February thanks to Silverback Touring.
DEVILSKIN have garnered a formidable reputation and a solid fan-base worldwide from their relentless touring schedule. A swathe of brilliant live reviews from Europe to USA to Australia are testament to the groundswell of support for this hard-working and focused New Zealand act.
The title of their latest album RED is significant, it is the universal colour of passion, vitality, blood, danger, romance, anger, horror and love; everything evocative. Of all the colours, RED is a warning and a statement.
RED starts with a sonic throat punch titled Do You See Birds and promises to enthral the listener with a tour-de-force of emotions and moods. From the epic and eerie Blood & Bone, the caged rage of Same Life, the visceral impact of The Victor, to the poignant beauty of Sweet Release, the resplendent grandeur of Bright Lights, the swagger of Be Like The River and the manic fury of Everybody’s High But Me. DEVILSKIN have long been noted for their emotive song-writing and ability to touch peoples’ hearts, and on RED they have bared their soul with their finest performance yet
Joining DEVILSKIN are fellow Kiwi’s SHEPHERD REIGN on their first ever Australian visit. SHEPHERDS REIGN are a Polynesian Metal band and seem to be a world first. The band is made up of 5 brothers: Pacific, Māori and Asian, who are united in their passion for writing and performing hard hitting music that expresses where they are from and shares their life experiences. It’s metal with melodic thick textures and big melodies, delivered with attitude and conviction. Their most recent release “Le Manu” has received close to two million views on YouTube.
SHEPHERDS REIGN is best experienced live, where each band member gives it their all and aims to smack the audience in the face with their performance. The live show is a culmination of years of playing together and developing their natural chemistry and here is where they are most powerful.
Rounding out the all metal assault are Brisbane band, THESE FOUR WALLS on their back of their million stream strong new album, “This Is Not A Future” and Sydney alt-metal band, BAD MOON BORN, who have established quite the reputation Australia wide as a powerhouse live act.
