Northlane announce Geelong show at the Wool Exchange in December

Northlane have announced a regional Australian tour for 2022 with a stop by Geelong's iconic Wool Exchange.

Australian heavy trailblazers Northlane are taking their #1 album, Obsidian, on tour through regional Australia in November and December.

The tour will kick off in Wagga Wagga on November 17, and take to Canberra, Wollongong, Newcastle, Manly Leagues, Penrith, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Caloundra in November, before also stopping by Gladstone on December 1 and heading to Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Geelong and Frankson before winding up in Hobart on December 17.

The run will see Northlane stop locally in Geelong at the Wool Exchange on December 15, and in Western Sydney – their first hometown show in a decade!

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The regional tour is set to cap off a stellar 2022 for Northlane. Earlier this year, the band released their acclaimed new album, Obsidian, which topped the ARIA Chart and has been streamed over 22 million times and climbing on Spotify. Self-recorded, self-produced (with the help of their longtime collaborator Chris Blancato) and self-released, album number six is a stunning feat that has truly transformed the heavy music landscape across the globe.

A bleak and anxiety riddled album reflecting the state of the world it was written in, Obsidian stands at the apex of the Northlane sound with their signature heavy groove sitting in perfect harmony with techno, drum & bass, intriguing synths, perplexing time signatures and widescreen choruses. This fusion of metal and electronic music lent itself to some of the most mind-blowingly spectacular shows Australian venues have seen in recent times.

Supporting Northlane when they hit the regions will be Melbourne’s very own Windwaker – another top-tier live act who have already cultivated one hell of an exhilarating show that can’t be missed.

Just like Northlane’s last Australian tour, tickets are expected to sell out so snap ’em up quickly to avoid disappointment.

Northlane will take to the Wool Exchange in Geelong on December 15. Grab tickets at from 9am on Friday, September 16.
