International rock superstars PARAMORE are making their highly anticipated return to Australia for their first headline shows in four years, bringing Tour Four to Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and Brisbane’s The Riverstage this February. Paramore are touring in support of their ARIA #3 charting album After Laughter with special guests to be announced.
Melbourne’s Electric Mary have released a killer new video for the track Woman, taking from their upcoming fourth album tentatively titled Better Days Are Coming.
Seamlessly fusing elements of gothic-rock, folk, and doom metal, Wolfe will be performing in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and finally Perth throughout March of 2018.
Wolfe’s music offers a combination of the delicate and the crushing, brooding and visceral, lyrically steeped in introspective dread. The end product is a winning formula that has earned Wolfe critical commendation for the best part of a decade. Her latest release, Hiss Spun, unveiled in September this year, is receiving similar praise.
Wolfe has garnered a considerably larger audience since her 2012 shows. With the release of the critically acclaimed Hiss Spun, it’s expected that these shows will sell out quickly. Grab your tickets early – don’t miss out.
