Conquest for Death have announced a tour of Australia during October with Cut Sick!
Conquest for Death is a fast thrashy old school hardcore outfit made up of members of What Happens Next?, Artimus Pyle, All You Can Eat, Love Songs, Charm (Japan), Pisschrist & Straightjacket Nation - so it's a little bit of a punk rock supergroup.
They're playing with The Kill, Dad They Broke Me, The Corruptors (members of Los Diablos, Space Bong and The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers), Straightjacket Nation, 4 Dead, Crux, Deathcage, Maus and Pathetic Human over the course of the tour. They've got a pretty crazy live show, so be sure to cut the sleeves off your old Sick of it All t-shirts, do some dumbell curls and practice your spin kicks before the gig rolls around.

Captain Cleanoff have long been considered one of Australia's (and dare I say the worlds) best grind bands. These guys manage to mix mosh-inducing punk grooves with sheer blasting brutality, coupled with an inimitable vocals style, an enormous live sound and a sense of humour and fun.
Not only have they released two instant classics within the genre (Self-titled and Symphonies of Slackness), but they are also one of Australia's best live bands (rivaled only by fellow grind heavyweights Agents of Abhorrence, The Kill and Fuck I'm Dead in my opinion).
