Periphery Australian Tour Kicks Off Next Week
Progressive metal masters Periphery will kick off their long-awaited Australian tour next week with a show in Brisbane on 2nd February (see complete details below). The tour will feature the band’s latest album ‘Periphery III: Select Difficulty’.
Representing the vanguard of addictive, chaotic, challenging and cathartically inviting heavy music for the modern era, Periphery’s triple-guitar attack and rhythmic dexterity has won them a dedicated fan base that encompasses subcultures ranging from the Vans Warped kid and the metalhead to the most dedicated Rush purist.
Periphery have earned their highly respected reputation onstage and off through a combination of undeniable chops, upbeat charisma and jaw dropping live show. Dedicating themselves to reaching levels of artistry, musicianship and craftmanship so high as to transcend from being the most important band of the djent subgenre to being one of the most important metal bands period.
The bands last headline tour of Australia was sold out. Expect this one to do the same!
Periphery Australian Tour: Supports Announced
Circles & Polaris have been announced as support acts for all shows except Perth, while in Perth Chaos Divine & Make Way For Man will open the evening.
Melbourne’s uniquely different heavy music exponents, Circles, create a distinctive fusion of powerhouse progressive rhythms, soaring lead vocals, and dynamic songs that have turned heads all over the world,
with the UK’s Metal Hammer Magazine quoting that with their ‘massive, bendy riffs. huge melodies. synapse-frazzling atmospherics. it’s hard to imagine what more circles could do to assert their awesomeness’
South Sydney Metalcore quintet, Polaris have built a reputation on the road for the last two years as one of the most exciting upcoming live acts in the Australian heavy scene. Their second EP, The Guilt & The Grief was released 12 months ago and debuted at #34 on the ARIA chart and #1 on the AIR chart!
Perth’s enigmatic prog metal five-piece Chaos Divine have well and truly immersed themselves in a realm of sound and style matched by few, and admired by many. Leading audiences and listeners through a journey of uncompromising arrangements, crushing heavy riffs and soaring melodies, Chaos Divine have carved out an impressive reputation for delivering a powerful and dynamic live show, which has seen them support the
likes of Slayer, Mastodon, TesseracT, Animals As Leaders, and Between The Buried And Me.
Six piece tech-metal scientists, Make Way For Man are comprised of members from past and current groups including Saviour, I, Said the Sparrow, This Other Eden, Reflections of Ruin, Vesper’s Descent and more.
In the short period of time that they have been collaborating, they have produced a phenomenal library of work that reflects their heritage and pedigree.
