Featuring the legendary COG, among other local rock music heroes!
It’s a rainy Saturday afternoon for the first show of the Monolith Festival tour. But after being rescheduled multiple times, not even the dreary weather can stop Brisbane’s metal contingent from gathering at Eatons Hill Outdoors for what can only be described as the lineup of Australian progheads’ wildest dreams, with a few fun surprises thrown in for good measure.
It's pretty hard to deny the omnipresent existence of Cog & Karnivool in the Australian musical landscape from roughly 2004 onwards, when they both released their debut albums. Lucius Borich has been the drummer of Cog for that entire existence, minus a few years off in the wilderness for the band as a whole in the middle. Now, they are joining forces again for the first time in 17 years to headline Monolith Festival, starting off with a covert trip down to Adelaide.
One of the most common cries in the Australian Music Scene when tours and festivals are announced is: "What? No Adelaide?" Well, South Australians, your cries have been heard and your prayers have been answered, thanks to Destroy All Lines!
WA Border closures and capacity uncertainties push Monolith Festival back to August/September 2022. Karnivool, COG, Ocean Grove, Plini, sleepmakeswaves, Reliqa & Yomi Ship remain on all dates!
