Australian Music Round-UpPop / Punk / Rock News

Punks the Descendents have announced their first ever Australian shows, and it only took 30 years. The band have announced three shows in December as part of a yet to be announced festival, alongside NOFX, Dropkick Murphys, Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Frenzal Rhomb, Parkway Drive, Me First & the Gimme Gimmes and more. The existence of such festival is unconfirmed, but the dates are below nonetheless.

Misfits are touring Australia. You heard right. Dates are below.

Rufio and Mest should keep all the pop punk kids happy after the storm of shows coming up in the next few months. The two will tour together this November, hitting most capital cities. If these two aren’t enough, there’s still one more international act to be joining them, yet to be announced. See dates below.

Guttermouth will be backing up their 2009 visit with a few more regional shows in their upcoming tour this October. See dates below.

Slash is recording his performances over his brief Australian stay, and will be releasing them as a limited edition live double CD.

Ice Cube will be performing a national tour alongside his appearance at the Fat As Butter Festival. See dates below.

Hot Water Music and Bouncing Souls have added a second Melbourne show for their December tour after already selling out the first. The new show is the following night at the Corner Hotel.

The Wonder Years will release a limited edition split 7” with Heroes For Hire to coincide with their upcoming tour together. Each band will contribute two previously released tracks, and the 7” will be available in 3 colour combinations and various package deals here.

Against Me! have added local supports to their October tour, with An Horse supporting on most dates. Check here to see who’s playing at your local show.

The Getaway Plan have obviously sparked some interest with their one-off performances to promote awareness for mental illness. The two shows went only went on sale yesterday morning, but the 18+ show is already sold out. The under 18 show is following fast, so get your ticket now.

Perth band Grim Fandango have added the finishing touches to their debut album, Birthmark Blues, and are surely eager to release it. You can check out a new track here.

Tonight Alive’s next EP will be titled Thank You and Goodnight. You can check out their new track, “Revenge and It’s Thrills” on their MySpace.

The Gold Coast’s Skyway will release a new EP on August 20. The EP will be titled Nauseating Suburbia.

Taperjean Records recently signed Ladies & Gentleman, a power pop/electro band from Sydney. The band will release their debut EP through the label on September 24th. You can check out and download their track, “Take the World”, from their bandcamp for free.

Soundwave News

The Soundwave first announcement is finally here (and was here a little early). Performing at the festival so far will be: Iron Maiden, Queens of the Stone Age, Slayer, Primus, Slash, 30 Seconds to Mars, Stone Sour, Avenged Sevenfold, Rob Zombie, Social Distortion, Gang of Four, New Found Glory, Pennywise, Sum 41, Anberlin, The Gaslight Anthem, Third Eye Blind, Devildriver, Sevendust, Less Than Jake, The Bronx, Monster Magnet, Terror, MXPX, Protest the Hero, Melvins, 36 Crazyfists, Ill Nino, The Ataris, The Starting Line, Bayside, Mad Caddies, The Maine, Trash Talk, Mayday Parade, Foxy Shazam, Never Shout Never, The Blackout, Alesana, Asking Alexandria, All That Remains, High On Fire, Dommin, The Sword, Kylesa, A Skylit Drive, There For Tomorrow, Breathe Carolina, Taking Dawn, I See Stars, Rise to Remain, Nonpoint, Veara & Every Avenue.

If the line-up doesn’t quite suit your fancy, there are still roughly 15 bands to be announced (supposedly nearly 70 total), however tickets will sell out ridiculously quickly due to some of the headline acts. Speaking of tickets,

Metal / Hardcore / Post-Hardcore News

The CKY tour which somehow managed to slip through my grasp earlier will now also feature Bam Margera doing stupid things to promote Jackass 3D. Dates are below.

Death Before Dishonor have announced their local supports for their upcoming tour beginning at the end of August. Check here to see who’s supporting at your local show.

The Take Action Tour with Attack Attack!, Pierce the Veil and Dream On, Dreamer have announced local supports. To find out who’s supporting at your local show, check here.

The Enter Shikari tour with House Vs Hurricane starts next month, and the local supports for those shows have also been announced.

House Vs Hurricane have had to move their underage show at Weston Creek Community Centre to Tuggeranong Youth Centre, as the original venue is required as a voting station for the election.

Melbourne band Lovers Grave released their EP, Deadcity on August 6th. You can currently stream the EP on their MySpace.

Thanks for putting this all together guys.

The whitlams are touring for the last time in a while during September. Playing a few shows. There's a link to the dates on their webpage, could you add it next time? Wouldn't want people to miss it.

After doing multiple Soundwaves the last 2 years, still undecided on getting a ticket for this one. There's like 3 or 4 bands I'd bother seeing. Unfortunately one of them (TGA) are pretty much my favourite band.

Even if there are only 3 or 4 bands to see it's still worth it to go since the tickets are about $160 and to see one band it's usually about $60-70. Plus festivals are always a lot of fun

Yeah, but the issue is the masses of unsavory attendees who are bound to be there just for Slayer or Iron Maiden. Not saying all their fans are jerks, but there are a lot of 'diehard' fans who won't respect most of the other bands on the bill.

I'll probably head to sideshows all week (hoping for some good combinations) and then Melbourne Soundwave. Hopefully hit up some sideshows in other states just for kicks, last year I went to Sydney for Glassjaw/Jimmy Eat World and it was pretty fun in a random city.

was annoyed jimmy copped shit from FNM fans this year i watched both and enjoyed both. I agree with the unsavory antendees there is way to much metal headlining and we are going to get smelly and rude metal heads coming.

Yeah I know what you mean. Iron Maiden are playing a few of their own shows over here so that may result in less people going to SW just for them.

Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if the sideshows cost just as much as soundwave though. I don't really mind in the end, it's still a better crowd than Big Day Out (which I still put up with).
