Live Review | The Amity Affliction + Architects + Issues + Stray From The Path + Deez Nuts @ Hordern Pavilion, Sydney

amity_4772-L
Arriving at The Hordern Pavilion I found myself meeting a swarm of dark cladded fans, sporting their war paint indicating that the night would be anything but peaceful. But who can blame them? With a line-up that boasts a solid blend of homegrown talent and international stars, what awaited everyone was a fierce display of talent and memorable performances.

With 5,000 die hard fans trying to getting into the show, the beginning of the night seemed slow and to tie that in with compulsory check-in for bags. The stage was almost bare when Deez Nuts arrived. Throwing their unique blend of Rapcore with heavy undertones, the boys played to faithful fans who made damn sure that they would witness the whole set and while things started to pour outside, the heated atmosphere inside the venue opened up the opportunity for a warm-up moshpit.

Live Review: The Amity Affliction, The Ghost Inside, Architects, Buried in Verona @ The Big Top, Luna Park – 29 September 2012

Words and Pics: www.hoskingindustries.com.au

Tonight’s all-ages gig meant it was an early start for punters hoping to check out all four bands playing The Big Top at Sydney’s Luna Park. While the eager crowd wrapped its way around the Luna Park grounds in serpentine fashion, patiently waiting for the doors to open, it seems as though most of the other press outlets missed the memo on playing times, with the photo pit looking rather barren for opening act, Buried in Verona.

Playing to a half-full venue, the Sydney sextet appeared a more polished, confident band than when this reviewer last caught them supporting Sweden’s Soilwork at the Manning Bar at the tail end of 2010. They’re plagued by the usual opening-act muddy mix, which is exacerbated by the three-guitar attack that’s the fashion these days. And while the clean vocals (courtesy guitarist Richie Newman) have improved a lot, every time singer Brett Anderson tries to sing along it all falls apart.

Destroy Music feat. The Amity Affliction and I Killed The Prom Queen – May 2011 [Tour News]

  Heavy music fans in Australia are set for yet another treat this year with Destroy Music – a festival headlined by The Amity Affliction and a recently reformed I Killed the Prom Queen. The undercard is just as unrelenting, featuring Deez Nuts and US band Of Mice and Men.

For The Amity Affliction, Destroy Music marks the band’s first Australian capital cities headline tour since hitting the road last July on the back of their sophomore release “Youngbloods”. Since then they have notched up two UK tours, a mainland European run and returned home to play to tens of thousands of people on the recently completed Soundwave Festival, where they turned heads as the Australian heroes on a 70 band bill. They’ve scored a #6 ARIA debut, multiple magazine covers, topped almost every heavy music poll, had Triple J singles and garnered ARIA and AIR nominations for “Youngbloods”. The Amity Affliction juggernaut is showing no sign of slowing down either. In March and April they will embark on their first ever US tour, taking in close to 40 dates, including SXSW, before returning to Australian shores for Destroy Music.
