A monstrous double-bill of Statues and Arteries will be tearing across the country come next month.
Perth’s Statues and Sydney’s Arteries are combining forces for the pair’s February tour around Australia together. The tour is in support of both Statues‘ sensational second record, the bleak and hard-hitting conceptual album, ‘No Grave, No Burial‘ (you can read our review of it here), with Arteries showcasing material from their solid beast of an LP, ‘This Will Destroy Us‘.
So, on one hand, you’ve got one of Australia’s best hardcore bands – Statues – playing wicked yet poignant songs about a topic very few wish to discuss (the world’s ever-growing refugee crisis) and on the other you have Australia’s best answers to bands like Frontierer, Tony Danza and The Dillinger Escape Plan – Arteries – supporting the Perth headliners? Sign us the fuck up!
