Australian 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 fans will be in for a treat this summer, with the beloved group set to return for the first time since 2019, in January 2024 making their long-awaited return to a country long considered to be their second home.
For 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗻, the tour will be particularly momentous – the vocalist having recently announced an indefinite hiatus from touring, these Australian shows will double as a special farewell run for the beloved vocalist and songwriter.

The return of 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 in recent years came at the most perfect of times for fans around the world.
What began as a one-off show in 2018 supporting Underoath in the U.S. soon led to a full-blown official return from the Floridian group, with new musical inspiration leading 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 to return to the studio in 2020.
Pandemic aside, 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 remained undeterred when it came to powering through and seeing out the process of making new music. The two EPs that resulted – 2022’s 𝙎𝙞𝙡𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙚 and 2023’s 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙙 – doubled up as fitting pay off records for long-time fans, as well as the perfect introduction to new fans.
Joining 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 will be longtime friends and special guests 𝗛𝗔𝗪𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗥𝗡𝗘 𝗛𝗘𝗜𝗚𝗛𝗧𝗦 and 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗗 𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘!
𝗛𝗔𝗪𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗥𝗡𝗘 𝗛𝗘𝗜𝗚𝗛𝗧𝗦’ fusion of post-rock, emo has seen the band embrace myriad influences since audiences were first introduced to them back with their debut, 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙞𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝘽𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚, in 2004. Recent years have seen 𝗛𝗔𝗪𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗥𝗡𝗘 𝗛𝗘𝗜𝗚𝗛𝗧𝗦 enjoy a reaffirming resurgence, with the 2021 album 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙍𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙅𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙁𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙤𝙬𝙨 𝙈𝙚 bringing the four piece back to the top of the emo world delighting many long time and new fans alike.
Similarly, 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗗 𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘 have also flourished in recent times, courtesy of rejuvenated and vividly arranged and executed music that has confirmed their talented dynamic. The Phoenix, Arizona metalcore group returned to radars everywhere in August this year with the release of their seventh studio record, 𝙃𝙖𝙧𝙙 𝙍𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙩 – the band’s first album in three years. Bold sounds fused with widened perspectives and observations on the human condition, 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗗 𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗩𝗘 redefined themselves in 2023 for a new chapter.
A lineup perfectly curated for Australian fans, summer 2024 is bringing 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 back Down Under in a big way. Be part of a defining moment in the 𝗔𝗡𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗟𝗜𝗡 story, and give Stephen Christian the sendoff he deserves – this tour is not to be missed!
