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!

Slash – Festival Hall, Melbourne
Walking up to Festival Hall on a Thursday night it was clear from the sea of black t-shirts and pleather that people were here for a rock show.

It’s kind of hard to feel like you’re at a real rock show though, when its 7pm on a warm Melbourne night and still daylight outside, however this didn’t stop support act Steel Panther instantly whipping up the crowd into a frenzy.
