Apocalyptica announce September tour


After blowing away crowds with their heart stopping shows during Soundwave 2015, Finnish classical-metal masterminds Apocalyptica will be returning in September for a headline tour.

From bow-eviscerating speed to sprawling, spine-shivering waves of sound, Apocalyptica’s sonic palette is as rich as it is diverse: Metallica covers,Wagnerian tributes alongside international Symphony Orchestra’s and collaborations with members of Slipknot, Soulfly and Bush are all a part of the bands extensive and multi faceted musical range.

With their eighth record 2015’s Shadowmaker (Sony Music Australia), cellists Eicca Toppinen, Paavo Lötjönen, Perttu Kivilaakso and drummer Mikko Sirén delivered an album of deftly weaved intricacies infused with an energy as taut as their horsehair bows. Full-to-bursting with killer choruses, deliciously dark overtones and some good old fashioned pedal-to-the-floor speed metal pace, Shadowmaker slices through every facet of human emotion and leaves the listener overwhelmed.

Wednesday, September 21: Capitol, Perth
Friday, September 23: 170 Russell, Melbourne
Saturday, September 24: Metro, Sydney
Sunday, September 25: Max Watts. Brisbane


Tickets on sale 9.00am Monday, May 9
