A Day To Remember and Underoath announce Australian tour

The ability to evolve and push boundaries has never been more important than it is now. While the mainstream becomes safer, the dynamic, genre-bending acts are driven underground, to be discovered by a whole new generation of music fans not content with the identikit bands pushed at them through the major media. It is this hallowed place that A Day To Remember has not-so-subtly taken over, from stereos to mosh pits across the world.

With their latest album ‘What Separates Me From You’, A Day To Remember have maintained their locomotive-like momentum, pushing their love of extremes to new heights. The hooks are their most melodic yet, in contrast to their breakdowns that are more crushing and medieval than ever before. “Whether it’s crafting a pop-punk anthem or delivering a sonic beatdown, ADTR do it better than everyone, and for the rest of us, that’s where the separation lies.” – Alternative Press

For the six men in Underoath, whose members have evolved and thrived during a decade-long progression that has elevated them into one of heavy music’s biggest successes, change has been ubiquitous. Overcoming what many consider their most significant line-up alteration yet, Underoath have experienced an artistic rebirth in the form of ‘Disambiguation’. “Dark, maddening, and one step away from throwing itself over the edge, and this is the very thing that makes it such powerful catharsis.” – Sputnik Music. The musicianship has evolved, with every band member adding to each atmospheric showcase and onslaught of riffage that shoves the band’s genre and drives a spear straight through it’s heart.

Be prepared for an unforgettable ride through gang vocals, sing-a-long choruses and crushing breakdowns as A Day To Remember and Underoath visit our shores this May.

    @20six80six (3): Tivoli is the only venue in Brisbane that is big enough capable of fitting the estimated amount of people who are expected to attend this show. It does have a liquor license, but why they aren’t having the 18+ show there is something I wouldn’t know either.

    who’s meant to be headlining? the whole press release puts all the emphasis on adtr.i don’t want to spend $65 to watch adtr headline

    The fact that it’s being advertised as ADTR and Underoath rather than ADTR w/Underoath could be indicative of a double header. That said, ADTR have a hell of a lot more fans than Underoath, so I doubt it. I’m not even sure why the two bands are touring together to be honest.

  4. Schatzy

    Yeah, if they were on the same label I suppose it would make a little more sense, but the bands are nothing alike an have very different audiences.

    The Astor is the most ridiculous place to have a gig of this nature. It’s a freaking theatre and has seats. Cos everyone is going to be sitting down when they watch UnderOath….
    ridiculous, I understand why City and Colour is there. BUT THIS? Retarded. They better change venues.
