We’re well and truly into sideshow season now, with Eagles Of Death Metal the latest Bluesfest act to share a bunch of headline dates for next year.

When Eagles Of Death Metal found themselves listed on Bluesfest’s second lineup announcement earlier this month, fans knew that things were about to get loose.

First forming in 1998 due to the shared musical efforts of Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, Eagles Of Death Metal soon found themselves crafting a bunch of slick blues-influenced rock tunes, releasing their debut album in 2004.

Since then, they’ve been frequent visitors to Aussie shores, and have released a handful of critically-acclaimed albums along the way, including a cover album titled which had previously been known as Pigeons Of Shit Metal (thanks to an insult from Axl Rose) prior to its release earlier this year.

Now, with their last tour of the country taking place in 2016, Eagles Of Death Metal are set to return to Australia next year for Bluesfest, and handful of headline shows while they’re in town.

With their Bluesfest appearance taking place on the Easter long weekend, the band will then hit up Perth’s Metro City on April 13th, before visiting Sydney’s Metro Theatre on April 16th, and then wrapping it all up with a visit to Melbourne’s Croxton Bandroom on April 18th.

Tickets to these shows go on sale from 10am local time on Monday, November 4th through Bluesfest Touring, while a pre-sale kicks off at 10am AEDT (or local time) on Thursday, October 31st.
