BOUND FOR RUIN | ‘Victim To Villain’ Tour | June/July 2014 *UPDATED*

bound for ruinBrisbane’s hardcore champs, Bound for Ruin are taking one last run around the country with their brand new single, From Victim to Villain. Releasing the track as a single, signals the last release from their album “Oblivion” before they move into new album recording phase. The boys are taking the opportunity to do one great big last hurrah to the album for the fans and then are going to bunker down putting all of their effort into a new slab of their melodic hardcore for release in 2015.

They are taking the single all around the country, taking in QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA in a round-the-country run that would usually test the mettle (metal?) of many a band. They take in iconic venues around the country such as Crowbar in Brisbane, the Cooly at the Gold Coast, Bald Faced Stag in Sydney and The Basement in Canberra.

Duet Productions Presents
suzi
“I have been touring in Australia regularly since 1974, and have actually lost count of how many times I have been here, but I think this tour will be number 29. It is my second home and I love it dearly. This year I celebrated my 50th year in the business and it just felt like the right time to take my final bow. It’s a daunting prospect and one I am preparing seriously for. I want this to be a night to remember in every way….tears, laughter and lots of rock and roll. This has been my life. Nobody in the world rocks as hard as the Aussies….and from me that’s what they’re gonna get….foot on the gas and go. So looking forward to this tour” ~ Suzi Quatro

**CANCELLED ** Toxic Holocaust & Iron Reagan | ‘Venomous Infestation’ Australia & NZ Tour | November 2014

toxic

**CANCELLED **

Sometimes s#%t happens…Unfortunately the Toxic Holocaust & Skeletonwitch tour slated for April was cancelled at last minute due to Joel Grind from Toxic being diagnosed with a serious throat condition which required immediate action lest he lose his voice for good.

He is currently in recovery and sharpening the blades with his sights set on a November reschedule which will see the Holocaust back in our lands ready to rip them apart with their old school nuclear thrash attack. Their latest and greatest album, Chemistry Of Consciousness will be just over a year old by then so the songs will be refined into lethal weapons and the band will be a fine tuned wrecking machine.
