Japanese metal juggernauts Crossfaith are coming Down Under from Japan for their first-ever Australian headline tour.
Japanese genre-blenders Crossfaith are bringing their Atlas of Faith world tour to Australia this year, taking to stages at Brisbane’s The Triffid before heading to Sydney’s Metro Theatre and Melbourne’s 170 Russell in October.
The five-piece have previously performed acclaimed slots at festivals such as UNIFY and Soundwave, as well as supporting the likes of The Amity Affliction here in Australia, but this upcoming tour will stand as their very first headline tour.
Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.
“We had so many great memories from festivals such as UNIFY, Soundwave and also supporting ‘The Amity Affliction’ to ‘Bring Me The Horizon’ and ‘In Hearts Wake’, but the only thing that we’ve never done over there is the headline tour,” the band reveal.
“The time has come to do it! This tour is a part of our 15th anniversary, so you guys can expect that we will play songs from our each record. Make sure you get your tickets and bring the MAYHEM!
“See you guys in da PIT!”
After forming in 2006, Crossfaith released their debut album The Artificial Theory For The Dramatic Beauty’ in 2009 followed by The Dream, The Space (2011), Apocalyze (2013), ‘Xeno’ (2015) and Ex Machina (2018). Each one saw the band blend their love of punk rock, metal and electronic music in daring new ways.
For their return to Australian shores, the band will be bringing along special guests Dregg.
Dregg make powerfully energetic music, driven by themes of fierce individualism, with a sound that hungrily consumes metal, hardcore, and rap, only to heave it back up in a colorful rainbow of bombastic brutality and iconoclastic absurdity, lovingly fed to the audience like mother birds. The Melbourne, Australia fivesome is thrillingly provocative, occasionally disturbing, and filled with hip-hop swagger.
