Having played their energetic live shows at Big Day Out, Homebake, Vans Warped Tour, Splendour in The Grass, and Falls, Sunk Loto have staked their claim as an impressive live band. They’ve also toured with the likes of Korn, Linkin Park, Suicidal Tendencies, Perfect Circle, Deftones and Sevendust.

A home-grown band that reigned during the 2000s, Sunk Loto formed in Queensland in 1997, with this tour marking the band’s first shows in 15 years. Featuring all four original members of the band, Luke Mcdonald, Sean Van Gennip, Jason Brown & Dane Brown, this tour marks the first time that the band have played together since their last show at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2007.
