Thanks to Adam for putting this together.

Australian Music Round-Up Pop / Punk / Rock News

Paramore will return to Australia after their successful Soundwave campaign for a full tour of the capital cities in October. See dates below.

Who said MySpace music is dying? Proving the point, Adam Young, better known as Owl City will be headlining an Australian tour. Joining him will be another American solo project, Jimmy LaValle’s The Album Leaf. See dates below.

If Owl City isn’t enough for you, then how about one of Australia’s most promising acts, Tonight Alive? Not only have they snatched the support for the Owl City/The Album Leaf tour, but they reached the top of the alternative charts on iTunes during the week, and have released their first video from the EP. You can view the video on their MySpace.

The Scare will be calling it quits after one final tour, now back in their home country after previously moving to the UK. See dates below.

Delphic announce Splendour sideshows. See dates below.

Metal / Hardcore / Post-hardcore News


To attempt to satisfy their hordes of fans (and scalpers); Metallica will perform two more shows in Australia prior to their full tour. They will be performing shows in Melbourne and Sydney before heading off to Japan, then returning for the previously announced dates. Get in fast for these tickets. There is also a presale for those who hold VISA cards, so take advantage and dodge the scalpers. See dates below.

Enter Shikari will return to our shores this September, a full tour of the capital cities planned. To add to their already busy and exciting year, House vs. Hurricane will join them, and the two will undoubtedly be explosive in a post-hardcore/electronica battle to the death. See dates below.

Poison City Weekender has made its first announcement, and it’s looking like it might be the best weekend of the year. Headlining are UK punks Leatherface, joined by a list of Poison City and Resist’s finest acts, A Death In The Family, Break Even, The Currency, Paper Arms, Lungs, The Hawaiian Islands, Grenadiers, The Gun Runners, Arrows, Kill Whitey, Like…Alaska, Grand Fatal, Grim Fandango, Wil Wagner & The Smith St Band, Fires Of Waco and Jamie Hay. Be sure to get your tickets fast, the three day festival is bound to attract some interstate attention. See dates below, and check here to find the specifics of each night.

House vs. Hurricane have announced two new tours as well as their support for Enter Shikari. The two headlining tours will see them reach North Queensland with Confession, and a full east coast tour with Heroes For Hire. Dates for both tours are below.

Miles Away have released a new track, “Ghostwriter”, on their MySpace. The song is from their new album Endless Roads, due out August.

Preorders for Blkout’s new 7”, No Justice No Peace, are now available. You can also check out a new song on their MySpace.

They're not really an AP.net band, but Thirsty Merc released their new album today. It's called Mousetrap Heart. They were the support act for The Fray's and Matchbox 20's most recent Aussie tours.
RIYL: Piano rock, The Fray, Rock.

$18 at JBHIFI, check it out.

Yeah I've seen the Thirsty Merc twice, they are fantastic.Their self titled was really good and their single 20 Good Reasons got a lot of air time because they used it in an ad for Lost. I would recommend all their stuff.

Their lead single annoys me massively. I loved "Those Eyes" from the previous record though. I may look into it.

Two Door Cinema club at UniBar sold out so quick... can't believe it. UniBar keeps alot of tickets at the for retards like me who think Adelaide shows never sell out.


Tonight Alive is going to be the biggest thing Australia has produced since Mel Gibson.

First confirmed band for Soundwave 2011 is The Blackout (UK). Source was up on the official Soundwave twitter somewhere... Sum 41 are also rumoured.

Also, the Rufio cover by Tonight Alive is fucking awesome.

Do want. I was too slack to preorder thinking JB would have it. They didn't.

The Blackout confirmed this on their twitter:
http://twitter.com/The_Blackout/status/16063936028

Updates for Soundwave can be found on:
http://twitter.com/soundwavefest

And the rumour about Sum 41 (and a whole list of other bands) is on the forums:
http://www.soundwavefestival.com/for...lineup-rumours

It's expected that the lineup will be announced late August or around that, and for all you people in Adelaide, looks like Soundwave is coming back(? didn't even realise they didn't stop by there this year lol). But yeah, stoked.
