Emmure announce Australian tour supports


Having had to postpone their January tour of Australia, New York’s most notorious live metal band Emmure have announced they will finally be making the long anticipated return down under for their first ever headline shows this June.

Since their inception in 2003, Emmure have released one EP, four studio albums and constantly toured the US and overseas garnering a legion of new fans with every show they play. Now, on the back of the band’s fourth studio album “Speaker Of The Dead” released worldwide in February, the band is back on the road and keen to demonstrate to Australian fans why they have already earned the support of an army of fans across the globe. After starting 2010 supporting Machine Head, Hatebread and Bleeding Through on their Australian tour, and ending the year playing shows with Parkway Drive, Comeback Kid and Bleeding Through, Emmure are well and truly warmed up and ready to destroy Australia in June 2011.

Joining Emmure on this brutal eleven-date tour will be Sydney heavyweights Shinto Katana and Melbourne’s Dream On, Dreamer.

Having completed tours with The Red Shore and Shai Hulud in 2010 as well as releasing "We Can’t Be Saved" the crushing follow up to 2008 debut album "Cold Streets", Shinto Katana started 2011 with a tour with Deez Nuts as well as headline runs. Shinto Katana are just getting started, by June they will be truly devastating.

Dream On, Dreamer may be one of the newer acts in Australian Hardcore / Metal scene, but in a short space of time they have managed to create a lot of noise. Between tours supporting Attack Attack and Deez Nuts, their "Hope" EP has had outstanding sales and the band is getting ready to release their debut album "Heartbound" in July with first single "Downfall” will be out at the start of June.

June 2011 will see Emmure punish Australian audiences with their blistering combination of hardcore spirit and metal aggression, high energy live performances and a dedication to excellence. Emmure, Shinto Katana and Dream On, Dreamer will hit your town in June 2011. Consider yourself warned.
