Well, it’s a thrilling day for heavy metal fans with Lamb Of God and Swedish rock band Meshuggah announcing their Australian tour!
The duo of heavy metal rock bands will come down in September this year with a host of shows across the country, starting in Brisbane, before making their way to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and finishing off in Perth.
It will be Lamb Of God’s second trip to Australia, after touring around the country last year. However it comes after a controversial year for the band and its frontman, Randy Blythe. Blythe was acquitted of manslaughter in the Czech Republic this year following a horrific incident, which involved a young man’s death following a stage dive by Blythe during the show.
Blythe was detained during the court proceedings, before being allowed to leave the country. Since then, the hardcore rock group has continued to tour following the success of their latest album Resolution.
Meshuggah have had a less turbulent time during this period, and have continued their rick vein of form, since the ’90s, where their head-banging style was received with love from both fans and critics.
Their latest album, Koloss continues their thrilling style of music, and has pushed the band to take a tour across the globe.
Tickets for Lamb Of God and Meshuggah are now on sale from ticketek.com.au, venuetix.com.au and oztix.com.au, depending on where you live.
