Over nearly two decades the tale of TOE TO TOE has been rooted in survival, struggle and conviction. Forming at a time when many felt real hardcore punk rock had enjoyed it’s day, the band rallied against trends and reared up in the face of fashion to become Sydney’s proudest exponents of a form of music that remains well and truly on the outside. TOE TO TOE will be throwing their weight behind SUICIDAL TENDENCIES at their Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sydney shows.
IRON MIND have always their own thing their own way. Playing late 80’s early 90’s influenced hardcore with heavy riffs, strong groove and NYHC flavour done right, IRON MIND will be the Melbourne support for SUICIDAL TENDENCIES on Sunday 15 May.
Adelaide’s good-time fiends CRATERFACE have been drilling out their crossover tunes since late 2007, with the debut album ‘More Thrash For Ya Gash’ and stack of touring under their belts, they will be bringing the party at Fowlers Live.
Since 2005, BATTLETRUK have been destroying the underground with their abrasive punk influenced crossover thrashcore and will be bring their no bullshit hard hitting live show and arsenal of gnarly tunes in support of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES at the Perth show, along with the blistering old school skate stylings of PILLAR OF HOPE.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES were never afraid of a little controversy. The godfathers of crossover thrash and creators of skate punk have dedicated their careers to delivering the middle finger salute to anyone who opposed their views (which included LA authorities who banned them for playing in the city for 6 years).
Playing their irrepressible blend of punk, thrash, funk and hardcore, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES are certainly true to their ideals of ‘no rules.’ Mike Muir’s extreme sincerity and full of rage ravings have garnered the ST Army the world over. “In typical fashion the band was explosive in their playing with Mike running all over the stage delivering his lines. The whole building seemed to shake with everyone screaming as one.” - Metal Army
Unbelievably influential, without SUICIDAL TENDENCIES you would not have the myriad of thrash metal and vicious hard-core bands that permeate the modern musical landscape. Delivering the fast-paced, aggressive and raw sound they pioneered, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES will be getting Cyco on their Australian tour next May…ST…ST…ST…ST!
