Miami Horror Announce Australian Dates, New Video

Aussie electro favourites Miami Horror are making a long-awaited return to Australia this December to play their first national live shows since 2011. Having already been announced as part of the lineup of the new Groovin The Moo spinoff festival The Plot and at Perth’s Sets On The Beach this December, the band have announced a run of live dates to accompany their festival appearances, returning in February 2014. Miami Horror have also unveiled the video for their latest single, ‘Real Slow’, taken from the group’s long-awaited follow-up to 2010 debut Illumination. Benjamin Plant, of the now LA-based four-piece, says the tune is “about finding that place or person were you feel secure enough to take things slowly.” Check out the video for ‘Real Slow’, a sexy, sunnyside mini-road flick, here.

Icehouse Become DUBHouse For New Australian Tour

Aussie rock legends Icehouse are set to reinterpret their classic hits and 30 year plus back catalogue as they become DUBhouse for a series of exclusive headline shows, including Queensland dates with special guests and fellow Aussie veterans, Models. “I’m Iva and I’m strictly roots,” say Icehouse frontman Iva Davies of the metamorphosis which will see reggae and dub stylings creep into the band’s pop-rock music. “When we play as Icehouse, we make sure we play the songs as faithfully as we can, the way people have loved them over the years. DUBHouse is a bit of fun for me and the band plus we’re adding extra singers and a brilliant brass section to make this into an end-of-year party for the band members, our fans and our friends.” The new tour follows last year’s Primite Colours national trek, in support of the reissue of the band’s Primitive Man and Man Of Colours albums, for the DUBHouse shows, fans will get to experience anthems like ‘Electric Blue’, ‘Great Southern Land’ and ‘We Can Get Together’, in a dynamic new reggaefied setting.

Bombino Add Shows To Australian Tour

Niger guitar wizard and singer Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar is headed to Australia for a string of festival appearances at year’s end, playing as part of the lineup for the Falls Festival on all three of its legs, as well as its sister WA event, Southbound, and select shows in the extensive Sydney Festival 2014 program. Now a Melbourne show at the Corner Hotel has been added to the tail-end of the Bombino tour.

Born Of Osiris & After The Burial Team Up For Australian Tour

Following up on their hugely successful 2013 Australian tour, in January 2014 Born of Osiris is set to return – this time with Sumerian Records label mates After The Burial in tow for ten destructive shows thanks to Vanguard Touring. While it may have taken three releases for Born of Osiris to head down under in the first place, off the back of their latest stellar effort Tomorrow We Die Alive, the Chicago-based progressive metal visionaries are wasting no time in returning. The band’s fourth record is a showcase of everything that Born of Osiris has been all about and then some – huge walls of chunky, syncopated guitars, layers upon layers of cybernetic electronics, glorious leads played with a silken precision, and a vicious dual vocal interplay that drives home their insightful and empowering lyrical vision. After The Burial will release their fourth full-length Wolves Within on December 2013, with Australia being treated to the first live performances off the back of it. Celebrating their tenth year as a band, the Minnesota five-piece were significant in pioneering the progressive deathcore sound, with their compelling new release set to redefine and transcend boundaries all over again.
