Having extensively toured their mesmerizing live shows together across the country in 2019, both Deadlights and Mirrors are primed and ready to pick up where they left off and dive headfirst into The Ego’s Valley tour.

“Since touring with each other in November 2019 on Thornhill’s The Dark Pool tour, we’ve been itching to get back on the road together!” share respective vocalists Dylan Davidson and Patty Goodman.

“As we both released albums during COVID and haven’t had a chance to tour them yet, we figured now is the perfect time to make it happen. I think our sounds mesh in a really cool way that both our fanbases will love. Our worlds are going to collide to create an experience that the Aussie scene will always remember.”

Debuting with Greyscale Records as one of their first signings with their album ‘Mesma’, Deadlights have become a known-name within the Australian alternative scene. Supporting acts such as Parkway Drive, Thy Art Is Murder, Every Time I Die, and so many more, 2020 saw the band knuckle down to create the landscape that would become the follow up to ‘Mesma’. They began with a blank slate, waded into uncharted territories and dove deep into ‘The Uncanny Valley’.

Similarly, Mirrors quickly turned the eyes and ears of Australian listeners towards Regional Victoria in 2017. Ceaseless work by the band alongside their fierce production team culminated in an eleven track, genre busting tour de force in the form of their debut album ‘The Ego’s Weight’ released in 2021 through their freshly acquired record label, Resist Records. Nominated for Best Independent Heavy album or EP at the 2022 AIR Awards, ‘The Egos Weight’ delivered a multitude of opportunities for the quartet including an appearance at Knight and Day Festival, Unify Forever Festival, and national tours with Polaris and While She Sleeps alongside Loathe.

Sydney band Inertia have proven their place atop the lineup with their most recent release, ‘Memoria’, built from the foundations of dark pop dripping with soul and intensity contrasting with explosive, driving riffs. The metalcore act strive to carve out their unique position at the forefront of Australia’s heavy music community, leaving a lasting impression with their carefully crafted sound. Inertia’s determination and drive secured them a place on the coveted Resist Records roster and has seen the band share the stage with some of the most prominent alternative acts both Australian and international.
