Post-rock trailblazers sleepmakeswaves are still riding high from the success of their epic triple j Like A Version of ‘Children’ by Robert Miles and have now announced a headlining national tour of Australia for December to wrap up their 60+ date international tour in support of recently released third album ‘Made of Breath Only.’ Joining them at all shows will be American post-metal juggernauts ROSETTA, returning to Australian shores for the first time in five years, taking place in clubs in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane & Sydney.
Guitarist Otto Wicks-Green voiced the band’s excitement over these upcoming dates, “This band started in small clubs around Australia, and it’s in rooms this size where we honed our live performances. The intimacy, the intensity, the heat. A visceral and immediate live show is heart and soul of this band, so we were very specific in selecting each of these rooms for this tour. Bringing one of our all time favourite bands, Rosetta, with us is the cherry on the cake. We’re stoked to be bringing out one of the most powerful live acts we’ve seen on a tour that is more scaled-down and intimate. Rosetta brings a relentless atmospheric catharsis to their shows, and really fit their description ‘metal for astronauts’. On top of all that, they’re our old friends from tours in 2012 and we can’t wait to see their faces again. These will be special, crushing, intimate performances, so don’t sleep on tickets. Come get heavy with us.“
Rosetta frontman echoed the band’s enthusiasm for their return to Australia: “We are very excited to be returning to Australia in support of our long time friends, sleepmakeswaves. When we last came to Australia five years ago, we played with SMW in a tiny record store in Perth. We couldn’t be more excited to come back and do a whole run together.”
