Adelaide’s metalcore heavyweights I Killed the Prom Queen has announced a beefy run of shows with American outfit The Ghost Inside. Formed in 2000, the band performed their first gig at Reynella Youth Enterprise Centre in late 2001. A couple of albums followed before the band called time-out for a spell. Reformed in 2011, the band soon enough turned their focus to a new album. That came with this year’s Beloved. Kill Your Stereo: “For a band so often imitated to varying quality, there’s something incredibly satisfying about hearing the real thing, new and confident, for the first time in years. Longtime fans can put worries aside – they nailed it.” The band has been making the most of things abroad of late so their return home is sure to be welcomed with open arms. The Karova, Ballarat – September 24.
