On the back of the release of their Unbreakable album that was released back in April the very energetic New Years Day are bringing themselves back to Australia for a headline tour later this year. Of course, they were one of the acts that really wowed at Download earlier this year, but now they are back with a string of shows that are guaranteed to sell out very quickly.
When HEAVY Mag caught up with Nikki Misery to talk about the tour it was impossible to hide the excitement in his voice. “Our first time down to Australia was when we got invited to the Download Festival,” he says excitedly. “Download is one of the biggest festivals it is all over the world, so just being invited to Australia for Download was like ‘oh my God I get to go to a whole new country that I have never been to before and play fucking Download…. how bad is that???’ So we came in with the biggest excitement and we were ready and those two shows kicked so much ass and it was so much fun to just rock out with these strange faces that have never got to see us play live before or perhaps haven’t even heard of us before.”
“The best thing I can promise is that will be the best rock show,” he says when I ask what Australian fans can expect this time around. “You are going to get down with us whether you want to or not. Australia I cannot wait to come back and rock my fucking face off with you guys. I am so excited, I am beyond stoked, after Download I can’t wait to get back… and if this is your first time seeing us then buckle up your seatbelts because this ride is just getting started.”
