Perth’s powerhouse progressive hardcore outfit, Statues, along with recent UNIFY alumni, Arteries, are touring nationally in late February. The tour has just become even more brutal with the announcement of supports for the tour across Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Tickets are on sale now at Beardfoot Bookings for the run of shows.
Statues are supporting their critically-acclaimed concept album “No Grave, No Burial” and bringing special guests Arteries along for the ride with them as the tour takes in Adelaide (Arteries no longer appearing in ADL), Sydney. Melbourne for two shows (18+ and All Ages) and Perth for two shows (18+ and All Ages).
Joining Statues and Arteries on the shows will be Life Pilot, Emecia & I, Icarus in Adelaide, Mowgli & Junk Head in Sydney, Drivetime Commute & The Orphan in Melbourne for the 18+ show, White Crows & The Omnific in Melbourne for the AA show, Sparrow & Make Peace in Perth at the 18+ show and Old Devil & Pot Plant House Party in Perth at the AA show.
With the new “No Grave, No Burial” record, Statues explored a new direction, whilst maintaining a strong connection to their roots that has made them known as one of the premier live bands in Australian heavy music – sharing stages with the likes of Northlane, Norma Jean, Every Time I Die, Stray from the Path and Touché Amoré. Statues are Alex Shom – Vocals, Scott Kay – Guitar, Matthew Templeman – Bass, John Overthrow – Guitar and Matt Unkovich – Drums.
Arteries have supported bands like Bleeding Through, Norma Jean, Protest The Hero, Earth Crisis, Make Them Suffer, Northlane and Architects and recently played at UNIFY Gathering – solidifying their position as one of Australia’s premiere metal acts.
