sleepmakes​waves to tour with Karnivool & Dead Letter Circus in January

Australia’s two biggest progressive rock exports KARNIVOOL and DEAD LETTER CIRCUS have teamed up with post-rock trailblazers SLEEPMAKESWAVES for a massive Australian tour this summer.
The Polymorphism tour will kick off Jan 8th at the Palace Theatre in Melbourne, before visiting Brisbane, Coolangatta, Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong and wrapping up at a massive show at Red Hill Auditorium in Karnivool’s hometown of Perth on Jan 23rd.
Both Karnivool & Dead Letter Circus are touring heavily with new albums: Karnivool’s third album Asymmetry debuted at #1 in July, while Dead Letter Circus’ The Catalyst Fire was their second #2 ARIA chart placing. Having played a string of major European festivals earlier this year, Karnivool are currently touring Europe including sold-out shows in London, Brussels, Munich and Paris. Dead Letter Circus are now in the US, following headline dates and festivals in South Africa and Europe.
Sydney instrumental post-rock/prog quartet sleepmakeswaves have had an amazing run since the release of their debut album “…and so we destroyed everything.”  Over the past two years, their busy schedule has included 7 Australian tours, 2 European tours, touring the USA and playing SXSW, supports for 65daysofstatic, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Karnivool – and an unprecedented nomination for an ARIA Award in 2012. Currently in the middle of a mammoth 38-date tour of the UK and Europe, sleepmakeswaves will release their much-anticipated second album in 2014.
 
“We can think of no better way to kick off 2014 than to accompany our amazing friends Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus on a January Australian tour! Honoured to be joining such a lineup. Looking forward to seeing you again, Australia <3″

Teal announce east coast tour supporting The Butterfly Effect

Sydney rock band Teal has a huge end of 2013 planned after announcing today they will open for The Butterfly Effect on their east coast tour dates in October.

The band have just completed a successful headline tour (including a sold-out show at Sydney’s Spectrum) and the news follows the release of the band’s debut EP ‘Hearth’ which has so far seen airplay for lead single ‘Solitaires’ on triple j, FBi, 4zzz and community radio nationally. ‘Hearth’ was produced by Lucius Borich, best known for being the drummer of Cog, Floating Me and currently The Nerve. The 5 track EP is Lucius’s first official foray into producing after opening Keysound Studios in 2012.

The upcoming dates are an opportunity for the young alternative/progressive rockers to cap off an amazing 18 months. After signing with manager Hamish Smith at Blue Shift Entertainment, they have been occupied touring the east coast and playing shows with sleepmakeswaves, Dead Letter Circus, Closure in Moscow, The Red Paintings & Twelve Foot Ninja.

Mid-2013 saw the band signing with Sydney-based Bird’s Robe Records, joining an impressive roster of Australian and international art rock and progressive acts, including 65daysofstatic, sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings and The Crooked Fiddle Band.
