THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have landed and with them, the great news that their Australian set will feature the band’s most star studded incarnation yet featuring Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine on drums and The Killers’ Mark Stoermer on bass guitar.

In further great news, as if any more was needed, we can now confirm that GERARD WAY (of My Chemical Romance) and one of Japan’s biggest rock exports ONE OK ROCK will be providing support at the band’s headline shows.

Paying homage to the bands that inspired them to pick up their instruments, NEW FOUND GLORY’s 8th studio album ‘Resurrection’ showcases a band at the top of their game and “is a powerhouse of a record, the brave onward steps of New Found Glory proving that hope–like pop-punk–is not dead.” – Kerrang!

STONE SOUR is a multi-faceted hard rock force of nature.
||The continued ascendancy of Stone Sour is a genuine phenomenon. Resounding with more power and passion than ever before, on the new album ‘Audio Secrecy’, Corey Taylor proves he is much more than the snarling masked role he plays in Slipknot. Pitting bone-shattering riffs alongside unforgettable choruses, STONE SOUR “have created the soundtrack to the rest of our lives” – Rock Sound

||QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have been one of the 21st century’s most engaging and ambitious rock groups. Led by Josh Homme, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have pursued an agenda of moody, sexy, high-energy rock that flaunts its danger and oddness, winning over fans and critics in the process.
Releasing their self-titled debut in 1998, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE boasted a stripped-down approach to hard rock and metal that valued gnarly riffs over head-banging theatrics. In keeping with the band’s desert origins, the songs had a sun-baked, slightly eerie quality to them, and as the album’s sexually suggestive cover indicated, QOTSA had a cocky, libidinous streak to them.

SOCIAL DISTORTION SYDNEY SHOW ADDED! THE BRONX TO SUPPORT!!
||SOCIAL DISTORTION’S Australian fans will finally get their moment in the sun after 31 grueling years!
SOCIAL DISTORTION are seminal punk torchbearers and is all that is right and pure about rock’n’roll. There’s always been genuine soul in the work of this Orange County crew, Mike Ness undoubtedly the closest musical descendant to Johnny Cash as you’ll find in the business.
THE BRONX is the LA beast that cannot be tamed, neutered or sedated. Anyone that has seen the ultimate party mob live will testify to their blood pumping set, brutal punk’n’roll and unrivalled destruction with the conductor of carnage frontman Matt Caughtran. “If the spirit of punk and the brawn of US hardcore is to be found anywhere today then it is in The Bronx” – Mojo. THE BRONX are back in Australia, kicking ass and taking names.
