Video: Beastwars Damn The Sky Live @ Sundae Sessions, Auckland.

New Zealand’s #1 sludge metal band Beastwars return to Australia for a quick stopover this May for the last ever Cherry Rock Festival in AC/DC Lane, Melbourne. Don’t worry Cherry Rock will continue on elsewhere, but AC/DC Lane is slowly being eaten up by developments stealing the festival’s space.

Beastwars music will be made available worldwide as they have signed a couple of deals with distributors Granite House Records and Rocket Distribution. This means both their self-titled album and Blood Becomes Fire will be re-released on 23 May in Australia and New Zealand, and on the 9 June in Europe, UK and USA.

Hence, they will be spruiking their new vinyl and t-shirts at their solo show in Melbourne!

Joining Beastwars on the Cherry Rock line-up are headliners Meat Puppets, Brant Bjork, and Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk, King of the North, Redcoats, Child, Drunk Mums, Bitter Sweet Kicks, The Harlots, Don Fernando, High Tension, Powerline Sneakers and Gay Paris (Sydney only).

Upcoming Tour Dates:

  • Christchurch, Friday 2 May, Dux Live
  • Melbourne, Friday 23 May, Cherry Bar (Vinyl Release Show)
  • Melbourne, Sunday 25 May, Cherry Rock Festival
  • Sydney, Saturday 31 May, Cherry Rock Festival

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
