FRIDAY NOVEMBER 14, 2014 – Billboard’s ‘Rock Group of the Decade’, NICKELBACK are powering up to kick off a massive May 2015 Australian tour in support of their eighth full-length studio album, No Fixed Address, unleashed today.
The decibels will rise as Nickelback fire up their trademark unmistakably huge sound, lifting the roof with anthems ‘Someday’, ‘Gotta Be Somebody’, ‘When We Stand Together’, ‘Burn It to the Ground’ and the classic ‘Figured You Out’ – plus new tracks ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ and ‘Edge of A Revolution’ – ringing out alongside all-time-classic power ballads such as: ‘Far Away’, ‘Lullaby’, ‘Trying Not to Love You’ plus ‘Photograph’, ‘Savin’ Me’ and ‘How You Remind Me’ from the historic All the Right Reasons (the album spent an incredible 112 consecutive weeks in Billboard’s Top 200 selling more than eleven million copies worldwide).
As his massive year draws to a close, Chet Faker (A.K.A. Melbournian native Nicholas Murphy) is pleased to announce details of his biggest Australian tour to date and the final tour of his award-winning breakthrough debut LP Built On Glass.
The homecoming national tour (featuring Chet as a three-piece band) will take in five capital cities this February. Chet will be ably supported by Melbourne wonder-producer Roland Tings and rising cosmic-funk revivalists GL.

erth International Arts Festival are excited to announce London Grammar will be returning to Western Australia to play Redhill Auditorium on March 5 as part of the 2015 program. Returning to the West for the first time since their stunning performance at South Bound Festival, the announcement will be welcome news for WA fans.
Joining London Grammar for all shows will be New York minimal pop three piece Wet. The talk of SXSW this year, Wet, came to prominence late 2013 with breakthrough single ‘Dreams’ – a track readily added to full rotation on triple j and boasting in excess of 300,000 plays online. Their second single ‘You’re The Best’ proved a worthy successor; showcasing the indie pop smarts and minimalist R&B that saw the band publicly lauded by the likes of NME (“beguiling”), Billboard (“the toast of the tastemakers”) and BBC Radio 1 (“understated, considered and beautiful”).
