A monstrous double-bill of Statues & Arteries will be tearing across the country together.
Perth’s Statues and Sydney’s Arteries are combining forces for the pair’s February and March tour around Australia together, which kicks off next week in Adelaide. The tour is in support of both Statues‘ sensational new record, the immensely bleak but incredibly hard-hitting conceptual album, ‘No Grave, No Burial‘ (you can read our glowing review of it here), and Arteries chaotically solid beast of an LP, the mighty ‘This Will Destroy Us‘.
So, on the one hand, you’ve got one of Australia’s best hardcore/metalcore bands – Statues – playing heavy, wicked and poignant songs about a topic very few wish to discuss in music (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 for this match made in heaven!
