Progressive metal heavyweights Protest The Hero are returning to Australia with a headline tour. 


The crew will be returning to our shores off the back of their latest release, the boundary-pushing Pacific Myth. 
"Pacific Myth was purely an experiment," said the group. "For this reason, it’s a totally ‘go-with-your-gut’ record and one we are extremely proud of...

Fortunes were up first. Conor McCabe’s honey-smooth vocals were the clear highlight, the frontman strutting the stage, bouncing gently on his toes, doing his best to stimulate the crowd. Producer Barnaby Matthews manned a modest station, each instrumental detail a result of his electronic wizardry. That seemed to be the idea, anyway. It was so difficult to detect just how much input...

Chatting with Conner Molander from Half Moon Run is an odd occasion.


Not because of anything overtly peculiar, but at the time of talking the focus of our interview – the ethos of the band, the development of their touring lifestyles – wouldn’t actually be experienced by Australian audiences for many months. It’s a long gestation period, which really means that their sophomore...

The perfect New Year ’s Eve party is a mythic beast, as rare and elusive as it is desirable.


You can set out to a shindig with all the best intentions in the world, but nine times out of ten you’ll still find yourself in a corner of some cramped apartment at quarter to midnight, chatting to your partner’s mate’s neighbour while necking some cheap red wine and wishing you were...

There are only two things certain in life: death and Xmas Even being solid as a bloody rock.
As worn out Melburnians limped to the end of the year, Even decided to slap them awake and celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut record Less Is More. There was plenty of nostalgia in the air when ‘90s gents Header played a lively set of dad-tastic tunes – singer...

If you're going to bill a show as “An Evening with…” this is how you do it. Watching longtime mates Josh Pyke and Bob Evans rattle off hits and stories to an adoring crowd was a great highlight in a year that was desperately in need of some.
There was no backing band, just a couple of guys and their guitars. Pyke and Evans walked onto the stage and launched straight into...

The two American doom powerhouses are set to take Australia by storm. 


Virginia five-piece Windhand have gone from playing local underground shows to touring worldwide with some of the greats in just a few years, while metal band Cough has only recently returned from a five year hiatus.
The pair of thrashers are bound to make an unstoppable double-header show,...

“I’m not like a Benny or Bjorn songwriter."


“I can’t lock myself in a cabin and come out with a Waterloo,” says Even guitarist and songwriter Ash Naylor.  Naylor is musing on the still mysterious creative process of songwriting as he explains the state of play with Even’s new album, originally commenced in 2014. “Writing tunes is never a problem, finishing off lyrics is a...

As has been famously (and often) said, war is hell.


While there’s little good that can come from such violence, the bravery and resistance of civilians caught up in conflict can be truly remarkable. It can also take many shapes. As Dubioza Kolektiv prepare to embark on their first Australian tour, the Bosnian band find themselves leading an unexpected charge of revitalised...
