Soundwave 2015 – Massive Third Announcement – Across The Ocean

Soundwave 2015 – Massive Third Announcement

!! UPDATE !! (17 Dec) Massive Third Announcement

THIRD ARTIST ANNOUNCE IS HERE! 

soundwave-2015

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history having sold more than 30 million albums, and won multiple Grammy Awards in the process. Having recently released the first of 2 new albums (Monuments to an Elegy), fans can anticipate the release of the second album (Day For Night) in 2015, according to singer/guitarist Billy Corgan. In what promises to be an absolutely killer set from THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, Billy Corgan had this to say on joining the Soundwave 2015 line-up:

The thing about Soundwave that sticks out amongst a lot of other festivals is that when you look at the bill you say, ‘that’s an exciting show’ and I think it’s very fan-focused. This is the kind of bill if I was looking as a fan I’d say, ‘I wanna see what’s going on at this show’.”

STEEL PANTHER was, for a long time, rock’s best-kept secret: a cult legend on the LA scene. But in recent years due to the success of their albums and live shows, the band has enjoyed huge acclaim from fans and peers alike. STEEL PANTHER has been joined on stage by rock and roll icons such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Paul Stanley of KISS, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Green Day to name a few (who knows who will join the lads on stage during Soundwave 2015!).

Also here to rock the Soundwave stages…

!! UPDATE !! (17 Nov) Bayside added

BAYSIDE fans don’t call their relationship with the band a “Cult” for nothing. After a string of much-adored releases, BAYSIDE has one of the most dedicated fan bases in rock, and the group steadfastly rewards those devotees with the musical salvation they seek. Six albums and more than a decade later, BAYSIDE has never lost touch with that mission and, in fact, they’ve only grown bigger. Now continuing that legacy is the band’s latest creation, an explosive 11-track collection that captures BAYSIDE in prime form, combining classic elements from throughout their career. Guaranteed to rock the faithful, the new release is appropriately entitled Cult with Kerrang! exclaiming that “Cult doesn’t rock the boat so much as reinforce it against any potential wear and tear, with Bayside never sounding so fired up.”

‘…Cult unleashes some of the band’s tastiest riffs and strongest songs.’ – Absolutepunk.net

Catch their up-beat high-energy live show at Soundwave Festival 2015.

!! UPDATE !! (14 Nov) Nonpoint added

Soundwave Festival 2015 is proud to confirm that NONPOINT will be returning to Australia in FEBRUARY 2015. After 17 years in the game, the Florida quintet still know how to deliver riff cracks with neck-snapping intensity, a bass and drum forge of unmatched groove and vocals that recount stories of pain and perseverance. The recent release of the bands eighth studio album “THE RETURN” is a raw, ripping and a very real record.

!! UPDATE !! (8th Aug) Monuments added to lineup!

Been a busy week with announcements so here’s a quick re-cap on the first three acts confirmed for the now two-day Soundwave 2015 event.

soundwave-2015

Soundwave 2015 lineup (in order of announcement)*

Coldrain
Patent Pending
Butcher Babies
Monuments

* current as of 8th August 2014

MONUMENTS

monuments-promo

UK’s MONUMENTS bring new life to the progressive metal scene. They push the envelope with complex instrumental metal grooves and are the fourth band to be announced on the Soundwave Festival 2015 line-up.

Now with Chris Barretto (ex-Periphery, Ever Forthright) on vocals, they have forged their own path staying ahead of the pack with their mind-bendingly progressive tech-metal artisanship. From a surprise appearance on BBC Radio 1 to countless international tours with bands such as Periphery, Tesseract, Born of Osiris and Protest the Hero to name a few, MONUMENTS earned a spot at Donnington Park’s historic DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2014 alongside Aerosmith, Avenged Sevenfold and Linkin Park.

“Monuments are stellar.” – Post Blog As

“The mosh pit exploded almost immediately and they kept the crowd jumping for the whole set.” – The Circle Pit

“Chris Barretto’s inclusion has taken Monuments to the next level. Luckily, for us, the next level kicks ass.” – This Is Not A Scene

Expect to witness the brilliance of MONUMENTS at Soundwave Festival 2015.

BUTCHER BABIES

Hailing from the City Of Angels, BUTCHER BABIES offer redemption from the overplayed underground, exorcising internal demons with a visceral sound matched only in scope by their explosive stage show. BUTCHER BABIES are set to bring their high-energy live show to Australia as the third band added to the Soundwave Festival 2015 line-up.

Frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey, guitarist Henry Flury, bassist Jason Klein and drummer Chris Warner juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with anguish and a shattering stand for the message at hand.

“This band kicks ASS! The Butcher Babies are definitely a show you need to catch.” – Metal Master Kingdom

“These gals can sing and growl unlike anything else in the metal scene.” – Examiner.com

“ The Butcher Babies turn in a spirited performance, choc full of raw energy and punk spirit, that surprises and impresses in equal measure.” – ThisIsNotAScene.com

“…These ladies never fall short to engage the crowd with killer vocals and a heavy-riffed backbone from the band.” – hardrockhaven.net

The five-piece began their unstoppable journey in late 2009 and after years of the bands relentless grind, world tours, humble determination and a ferocious debut album; BUTCHER BABIES are seemingly an unrestrained force to be reckoned with.

PATENT PENDING

patent pending promo

PATENT PENDING is an acrobatic gang of musical misfits from Long Island, New York. With a never-say-die attitude and enough live energy to power Times Square, they are the second band to be added to the Soundwave Festival 2015 line-up.

Growing in size from basements to amphitheaters, from VFW Halls to sell out headlining shows in the United Kingdom, their live shows are psychotically fun and dramatically moving. Bowling For Soup gave them an opening spot on their massive UK tour in 2012, which led the band to return for multiple headlining tours and earned them a spot on DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL with the likes of Slipknot and Iron Maiden.

“These dudes have got spunk and energy, Patent Pending are super entertaining – boy do they put on a show.” – Vulture Hound

“Patent Pending delivered a fun, energy packed, spot on show.” – Birmingham Live

“Patent Pending are a fun live act from start to finish.” – Moshville.co.uk

“Patent Pending hit the stage running jumping and didn’t stop for the entire set. With an amazing stage presence and a array of jokes, stunts and cheesy boyband style dancing, they captured the crowd and set the tone for a lively, fun evening of pop punk tunes.” – Brumlive.com

PATENT PENDING have enjoyed the success of three music videos reaching the coveted #1 spot on MTV.com, with state side rotation on MTV, MTV2, MTVu, Fuse on Demand and Scuzz TV. “Dream Seeker Of The Year” video won a Billboard Music awards trophy and afforded them the honor of delivering a ground-shaking performance of their song “Dance Til We Die” in front of a National Television audience of over 8 million home viewers.

COLDRAIN

coldrain-promo

Nagoya rockers COLDRAIN have already made their mark in becoming a household name in their home country Japan and after building their international footprint with their blistering live show, Soundwave  are thrilled to announce COLDRAIN on the Soundwave Festival 2015 line-up ahead of their debut international album, The Revelation out August 8.

After already conquering Japan, COLDRAIN have set their sights on the rest of the world with their massive riffs, brutal breakdowns and their energetic, high-energy live show.

They’ve toured with metal titans Bullet For My Valentine in February/March 2014, co-headlined the completely sold out Monster Energy Outburn Tour with Crossfaith and Miss May I, then continued on to perform sets around the globe at the likes of Download Festival (UK) and Rock am Ring/Im Park (Germany) and performed at Japan’s major rock festivals including Summer Sonic, Rock In Japan, as well as Ozzfest Japan.

Word’s spreading about their awesomeness and Australia is next on their world domination list!

“…tonight proved just how brilliant they are in a live environment. COLDRAIN deliver massive riffs and even bigger choruses by the bucket load” – UK Scumscene

“It’s all systems go from the opening chugs of No Escape, and the quintet mark their London debut with 60 minutes of intense sonic battering” – Kerrang

“…the Nagoya-based quintet make it virtually impossible to simply sit still and listen.” – Rocksound
