FRIDAY DECEMBER 4, 2015 – Live Nation and 24Hundred are stoked to announce that post-hardcore’s rising stars Hands Like Houses are joining The Amity Affliction, A Day To Remember and Motionless In White on the huge BIG ASS TOUR which kicks off next week, following The Ghost Inside’s withdrawal. You can read The Ghost Inside’s heartwarming statement, here.
Fresh off the back of the 32-date world tour, and with new material in tow, Canberra’s Hands Like Houses are bringing their energetic live show, ambitious instrumentation and powerful, emotive sound. Their latest single “New Romantics” is out now via UNFD/Rise Records, with an album announcement expected shortly for an early 2016 release. It will follow their stellar sophomore album Unimagine (2013), which entered the US Billboard Hard Rock Charts at #4 and was highly praised across the rock music scene.
As one of Australia’s biggest and best-loved bands, The Amity Affliction are a modern-day phenomenon. Having just released their brand new single “Shine On” and an accompanying video, theBIG ASS TOUR will cement The Amity Affliction’s standing as a household name around the country as they appear on the same stages as the likes of Sam Smith, Elton John and Cold Chisel this month.
An undeniable international success story, Australian crowd-favourites A Day To Remember have accelerated steadily on an upward trajectory, from humble beginnings in Florida to performing at festival main stages around the world. The band has sold more than two million albums worldwide, and their self-released record Common Courtesy (2013) debuting at #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Charts.
Motionless In White are one of the hottest bands in metalcore today, and make their return to Australian shores after two performances on Soundwave Festival in recent years – this time with the momentum that’s followed their highly successful third album Reincarnate (2014) which debuted at #13 on the ARIA charts and #9 on the Billboard 200.
Check your local venue for doors open and set times, and allow plenty of time for entry to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the action!
