Kill A Celebrity Adelaide Tour


Kill A Celebrity tour Adelaide in August

Posted by Lachlan

Kill A Celebrity at Anal Discharge's final show at TerrigalThe tour nobody wanted and everybody feared; the hyper-violent, hyper-speed, booze-fueled and adrenaline-lubed Sydney grindbastards Kill A Celebrity are set to invade the City of Churches this August!

The Adelaide tour comes on the eve of a new split CD release with the experimental UK metallic hardcore group Krupskaya, set to be released on the Sydney extreme record label Grindhead Records ( in the near future.

The band extends an invitation to join them on a weekend of partying, destruction, booze, blues and BBQ's as they play at The Engima Bar on the 1st of August at local hero's The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers final show, or at Worldsend with Space Bong on the 2nd of August. Available at the shows will be the first ever run of Kill A Celebrity merchandise so that you can publicly advertise your poor taste.

Against The Grain 4 (SA) Festival Line-up Announced

Posted by Lachlan

Aww yeah, the line up for Against The Grain 4 on Saturday the 13th of September has been released. It's being promoted as all ages, all day and all metal at 'Fowlers Live', so get out your eyeliner, straighten your hair, praise Lucifer, whack on that bullet belt and patch jacket and practice your windmills because when it rains metal, it fucking pours!!!

Man I feel like Andrew Haug writing that level of metal cheese. This looks like a bit of a more mainstream/commercial metal festival, but its great to see The Ocularis Infernum on the bill.

Heres the full line-up anyhow:

- Psycroptic (TAS)
- Alchemist (ACT)
- Daysend (NSW)
- Double Dragon (SA)
- Picture The End (SA)
- Truth Corroded (SA)
- Dyscord (WA)
- Diatribe (SA)
- The Ocularis Infernum (VIC)
- Skintilla (SA)
- State of Integrity (QLD)
- A Red Dawn (SA)
- Se Bon Ki Ra (SA)
- Asphyxia (SA)

Tickets will only set you back ~$30 which is pretty impressive considering the number of larger and interstate bands, and the fest runs from midday to midnight. You can hook up tickets from Venuetix and Moshtix.

Heavy mental.
