Godsmack, Papa Roach, Nonpoint, Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate & The Color Morale Announce Sidewaves

Not many alternative acts can claim to have a day officially named after them in their honour – GODSMACK can.

In honour of their 20 million album sales and two decades of killer tunes, to mark the release of their new record 1000hp, the Mayor of Boston declared August 6 ‘Godsmack Day’.

1000hp debuted at No.3 on the Billboard 200 charts and won praise for its mix of brutal riffs and melodies. Loudwire declared: “1000hp succeeds in bringing the hard in heavy doses with just the perfect smattering of melody in just the right places.”

Godsmack has always been a huge live draw, and even casual fans become addicted after witnessing their dynamic live performances.” – Metaholic.

Whatever genre you want to put them into: nu-metal, rap-metal or alternative, one thing remains certain about PAPA ROACH, after 20 years they still kick serious ass. Armed with new record ‘F.E.A.R’, the Californian band return to Australia this summer on the back of consistently positive live reviews, with critics raving about the band’s boundless energy.

“Anarchy took over among the crowd and the band didn’t simply replicate their album tracks, they dominated that stage.” – Stereoboard.

A vital energy has coursed through NONPOINT’S music since day one! As a result, they’ve sold over 8ook albums in the US alone and crisscrossed the country with everyone from Stone Sour, Disturbed, Papa Roach, All That Remains and many more! With every album and every show, NONPOINT just becomes fiercer! After 17 years in the game, the Florida quintet sustains the same energy that sparked its foundation back in 1997. The riffs crack with neck-snapping intensity, the bass and drums forge an unmatched groove, and the vocals rapidly recount stories of pain and perseverance.

Australia, be prepared as it’s a rare occurrence when two heavyweights of any genre agree to tour together. FALLING IN REVERSE and ESCAPE THE FATE join forces to bring two kick arse Sidewaves to Melbourne and Sydney ONLY with their BURY THE HATCHET tour. Joining them will be special guests THE COLOR MORALE.

BURY THE HATCHET tour sold out in North America in 2014 and here’s what the critics had to say:

In NYC “Closing out the Bury The Hatchet Tour was none other than Falling in Reverse, exploding with an electrifying set. Falling In Reverse put on an epic show with everyone singing along, even louder than Radke himself at times. Escape the Fate, played a flawless set offering a great mix of old and new songs.” – Crypticrock.com

In LA “…a fun, exciting, energetic and new take on an old style unlike anything Falling in Reverse or Escape the Fate have done before. It was nice to see Falling in Reverse with so much energy, and Escape the Fate sounding better than ever before.” – Soundcheck411.com

In San Francisco “…fans of both of Escape The Fate and Falling In Reverse were seen enjoying the show. There was nothing but smiles all around the venue.” – shamelesspromo.net

With numerous accolades under their belts, FALLING IN REVERSE have been named Artist of the Year in 2012 by Alternative Press, Ronnie Radke was named one of the 100 Greatest Living Rockstars by Revolver Magazine and one of the 50 Greatest Living Rockstars in the World, in the company of Lemmy, Slash, Steven Tyler and Ozzy Osbourne in 2014 by Kerrang!. Their third full-length record, Just Like You is set for release on February 20 ahead of their performances.

Known for their absolutely kick ass energetic performances and audience interaction, this is a rare opportunity for fans to catch ESCAPE THE FATE in what will be 2 killer shows! While lesser bands undermine themselves, ESCAPE THE FATE have not only delivered a cutting edge and contemporary album when they released ‘Ungrateful’, but have managed to avoid the kind of VH1 / Behind The Music –style flame-out that’s indicative of many careers and confirming the bands readiness for the big time!

Escape the Fate stepped right out of their records for an hour of intense thrashing, strutting, and seizure-inducing lights.” – consequence of sound

Known for their skill of combining elements of intricate musicianship with a passionate message, shredding riffs and soaring choruses, THE COLOR MORALE are masters of their craft, putting as much emphasis on the message found in the songs as they do in their sound, and that is what their fans value most.
