This weekend, A DAY TO REMEMBER and UNDEROATH kick off their relentless Australian tour with support from the cream of the crop of Australian acts. Opening the show in Perth is jaw-dropping metal act MAKE THEM SUFFER and following on in Adelaide, hometown heroes ABANDON ALL HOPE. Melbourne’s HOPELESS will destroy Festival Hall and Sydney supports will be THE BRIDE on Friday, and HAND OF MERCY on Saturday. In the sunshine state, THE DREAM THE CHASE will throw their weight behind ADTR at The Tivoli on Sunday 15th, and THIS CITY IGNITES on Wednesday 18th. At The Cooly, pop punk kings SKYWAY round out the tour.
With four sold out shows under their belts in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane, A DAY TO REMEMBER will be giving more of their fanatical followers one last chance to see them with a second and FINAL show announced for Brisbane at The Tivoli on Wednesday 18 May. With Adelaide sold out, the show will be moving to Thebarton Theatre, on the same date Tuesday 10 May. All tickets purchased for the HQ show remain valid.
The ability to evolve and push boundaries has never been more important than it is now. While the mainstream becomes safer, the dynamic, genre-bending acts are driven underground, to be discovered by a whole new generation of music fans not content with the identikit bands pushed at them through the major media. It is this hallowed place that A DAY TO REMEMBER has not-so-subtly taken over, from stereos to mosh pits across the world.
With their latest album ‘What Separates Me From You’, A DAY TO REMEMBER have maintained their locomotive-like momentum, pushing their love of extremes to new heights. The hooks are their most melodic yet, in contrast to their breakdowns that are more crushing and medieval than ever before. “Whether it’s crafting a pop-punk anthem or delivering a sonic beatdown, ADTR do it better than everyone, and for the rest of us, that’s where the separation lies.” – Alternative Press
For the six men in UNDEROATH, whose members have evolved and thrived during a decade-long progression that has elevated them into one of heavy music’s biggest successes, change has been ubiquitous. Overcoming what many consider their most significant line-up alteration yet, UNDEROATH have experienced an artistic rebirth in the form of ‘Disambiguation’. “Dark, maddening, and one step away from throwing itself over the edge, and this is the very thing that makes it such powerful catharsis.” – Sputnik Music. The musicianship has evolved, with every band member adding to each atmospheric showcase and onslaught of riffage that shoves the band’s genre and drives a spear straight through it’s heart.
Be prepared for an unforgettable ride through gang vocals, sing-a-long choruses and crushing breakdowns as A DAY TO REMEMBER and UNDEROATH visit our shores this May.
