The Art turn out to be a great option for The Cult tour, offering a punchy set of big solid indie rock driven by Kara Jayne on bass and the monstrous Jordan McDonald on the drums, differentiated from the pack by the contrasting lead vocals of Azaria Byrne and Kara Jayne which add to the tonal depth of the songs. Max Warne delivers in the spirit of young and reckless guitar-slingers, and we get some glorious echoes of Marc Bolan from the front man. The Art have just released their new album, “All In The Mind”, and they were the ideal support act and well received by the Brisbane crowd who were pretty happy to get a solid dose of The Art.
Here’s some news to whip music lovers into a frenzy. Award-winning, internationally acclaimed colossal rockers PANIC! AT THE DISCO are set to return to Australian shores January 2017 to support their chart topping fifth studio album, Death Of A Bachelor.

Multi-platinum alt-rock trio SEETHER will be returning to Australia to celebrate the release of their 6th album ‘Isolate And Medicate’.
Having sold over 5 million albums, SEETHER is the biggest rock act to come out of South Africa ever! From headline runs to festival appearances all across the globe, the band has amassed an exceptionally loyal fan base, and this is a band that ensures every single performance delivers their fans all they could possibly want.
TWELVE FOOT NINJA are one of Australia’s most innovative and experimental new bands.
Earlier this year, the band took home the prestigious “Best New Talent” award at the sixth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards. They have just returned from a 30-date US tour supporting In This Moment. The debut single from Silent Machine, “Coming For You,” is currently impacting and reacting at radio now and has surpassed more than 1,000,000 YouTube views. See TWELVE FOOT NINJA perform their heavy fusion groves and soaring melodies as they open up the show in Melbourne.
BREAKING ORBIT are a captivating heavy progressive and alternative rock band from Sydney. Their music ebbs and flows through passages intricate and eclectic, melodic yet heavy, tribal but modern, atmospheric and at times brutal. It is an amalgamation of astonishing musicianship that often results in the listener being transported into an audio journey with the band. In 2013 they shared stages with Dead Letter Circus as their national main tour support, as well as headlining their own Australian tour for Silence Seekers – the second single from their debut album. See BREAKING ORBIT perform in Sydney as they open up the show.
Named for the prized possession of Rome’s infamous despot, CALIGULA’S HORSE is an emerging progressive alternative rock band from Brisbane, Australia. CALIGULA’S HORSE has toured with the likes of Voyager, Twelve Foot Ninja, Ne Obliviscaris, Sleepmakeswaves and continue to garner a strong fanbase in Australia. See their moving show as they support MASTODON in Brisbane.
Heavy music is typically a battlefield upon which the uninitiated dare not tread, but MASTODON unifies the tribes unlike anyone else.
Album after album, MASTODON set the pace for modern heavy metal. They took pole position fresh out of Atlanta some 14 years ago, and with album number six, ‘Once More Round the Sun’, show no signs of giving it up. “MASTODON are obviously from another planet. Let’s just be happy they’re occupying ours for a while.” – Blabbermouth
The band is so balls-out creative — in its zealous riffage, its metaphysical motifs, its visual components — that it energizes even the crustiest headbangers. MASTODON fans have never witnessed a full headline tour in Australia before and finally the long agonising wait is over!

From outsider cult heroes to beloved counter- culture royalty, Cheech & Chong have blazed a smokey trail across four decades becoming one of the most loved and identifiable comedic duos of our time. Defining an era with their hilariously irreverent, no-holds-barred comedy, they released their all-time classic movie Up In Smoke in 1978, it became the most successful comedy movie of its time grossing in excess of 100 million dollars, cementing the loveable duo’s position as totems of alternative culture.
Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce Grammy award-nominated, pop and R&B superstar Jessie J will return to Australia in March 2015 for a series of headline shows.
With swag loads of songs spanning multiple genres, Jessie J’s musical styling has redefined pop music for a generation. Blending vintage and modern music, Jessie J has been making waves since the release of full-length debut album Who You Are.
There are few heavy metal bands that can match the sheer brilliance, aggression and stature that JUDAS PRIEST have in a career spanning nearly 40 years. With over 46 million album sales, a Grammy award and seventeen studio albums at their disposal – including last year’s brilliant ‘Redeemer Of Souls’ – there’s no doubt Birmingham’s most famous godfathers of metal remain at the peak of their powers after more than four decades.
