MONOLITH FESTIVAL returns…and it’s living up to its name!

Monolith is thrilled to announce its triumphant return, bringing an unbeatable curation of international names and Australian favourites to venues around the country this November. Alongside the incredible lineup will be workshops, panels, market stalls and DJ’s to further enhance the festival experience for Australian prog fans.

Headlined by New York prog rock icons Coheed And Cambria on their first Australian tour since 2016, Monolith 2024 comes out the gate swinging. An unbeatable live act, Coheed and Cambria are making their long overdue return with a special Neverender set performing their critically acclaimed album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through Madness in its entirety.

Washington D.C.’s Periphery, make their long-awaited return to Australia. The band’s latest album, Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre, brought the group critical acclaim, cementing Periphery as leaders in modern progressive metal. With seven self-produced studio albums to their name, the Grammy-nominated five-piece have continued to defy the boundaries of conventionality, bringing new life to the progressive metal world.

Innovative Norwegian progressive metal outfit Leprous joins the Monolith lineup as another exciting addition, with the five-piece set to bring their new album Melodies of Atonement (set for release this August) to Australia, along with a selection of dynamic cuts from their seven-album strong catalogue. The music of Leprous has been praised for its avant-garde approach to alternative metal and prog, with Tor Oddmund Suhrke and Einar Solberg’s compositions continuously ensuring that the band’s central sound chases a blend of genres, instead of aligning itself with one and one alone.

The celebration continues with the inclusion of Canadian instrumental group Intervals. Formed in Toronto in 2011, Intervals quickly earned their stripes as a fresh force in the djent and prog metal scene. Masterful instrumentalists with a savvy hold on melody and arrangement, Intervals have continued to produce material that redefines their vision; their 2014 debut A Voice Within established a strong presence, and through into their latest album, 2023’s Memory Palace, the band has shown no signs of wavering.

Adding some more European flair to the lineup for Monolith is French metalcore/prog five-piece Novelists who will tour Australia for the first time this November. 2023 marked a new era for the band with the addition of vocalist Camille Contreras, solidifying their status as a respected and influential force in the contemporary metal scene.

Completing the stacked Monolith lineup for 2024, is Melbourne’s Silver Fang – appearing at each festival date except Sydney. Emerging onto the scene with their debut single Cross-Talk in 2022, the four-piece quickly built on early buzz; capturing an exciting blend of metalcore, gothic and electronic music that has created a unique sonic playground from which they create today. The band’s 2024 project Labyrinth reinforces the fresh perspective Silver Fang have on modern heavy music – they represent the new wave of young innovative artists putting their own twist on the foundational genre sounds.

Don’t Miss an epic day this November at Monolith! One stage, no clashes.
