With three Platinum albums under their belt, including the renowned 2005 debut “Hold Your Colour,” and chart-topping success with “Immersion” and “In Silico,” Pendulum has cemented its place as one of Australia’s most successful musical exports. Their current single, ‘Halo,’ featuring Matt Tuck, lead singer of emo legends Bullet For My Valentine, is just a taste of what’s to come.

Pendulum’s live performances are a force to be reckoned with, known for selling out global arena tours and igniting main stage festival crowds worldwide. This tour follows their epic headline slot at Ultra Miami and their previous appearances in Australia and New Zealand in 2021.

The lineup promises more new music in 2023, with frontman Rob Swire hinting at an apocalyptic sound for their upcoming material. In addition to ‘Halo,’ fans can look forward to the release of ‘Halo’ (Matt Tuck Rework) next week, where Matt Tuck puts his own spin on the band’s latest single.

Joining Pendulum on all dates is fellow Perth-bred drum and bass legend ShockOne, also known as Karl Thomas. ShockOne’s latest track ‘Heart On Fire,’ featuring Pauline Kerr, is just the tip of the iceberg for this Australian dance scene powerhouse.

Tickets go on sale Monday 7 August, and fans can sign up for early ticket access to the Frontier Members Presale, starting Friday 4 August. Don’t miss this monumental return of Pendulum as they set out to conquer stages across Australia and New Zealand once more!
