We're going on tour...again! With their July tour supporting Karnivool almost completely sold out, Sydney's sleepmakeswaves have announced a headlining tour of Australia for September. Taking in 6 states (including their first ever visit to Tasmania), the tour follows a busy 2012 that has seen the instrumental rockers tour the US, Europe and Australia extensively. The tour caps off an amazing year that has seen SMW perform at SXSW Festival in Texas, Belgium's Dunk Festival (alongside 65daysofstatic), support Japan's Boris (and the aforementioned Karnivool) and most recently, secure an American release for their album '...and so we destroyed everything.' With plans to head to the UK, Asia, New Zealand and a return jaunt to the US and Europe in 2013, their latest track to be featured is a fitting description for the band's extensive touring. 'Now We Rise and We Are Everywhere' is available to listen/download at http://birdsrobe.bandcamp.com/track/now-we-rise-and-we-are-everywhere sleepmakeswaves head out on the ‘Now We Rise and We Are Everywhere’ Australian tour in August and September 2012: Fri 14th Sep @ Crow Bar, Brisbane QLD www.oztix.com.au $11+bf "...and so we destroyed everything" and "in today already walks tomorrow" are out now through Bird's Robe Records. www.sleepmakeswaves.com www.facebook.com/sleepmakeswaves www.birdsrobe.bandcamp.com Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVIYNQzAjwo Be great if you could help us spread the word! - Alex, Kid, Otto and Tim.
Local live music venue The Zoo has really been throwing its support behind the local music scene of late, and Saturday July 28th will be no exception. The night will see some of Brisbane’s strongest bands come together to put on a night of predominantly post and prog rock sounds. Hazards of Swimming Naked will headline the night. They’ve been a bit quiet lately but that is certainly not the case behind the scenes. These guys have been rehearsing solidly and are super keen to gig again. FEED have been putting in the hard work for several years now and punters at their shows are reaping the benefits. Fresh from a recent EP release that attracted big crowds and raving reviews, no other band is as deserving of a Saturday night slot at the Zoo. Echotide are taking a break from recording duties on their upcoming album to give what will certainly be a captivating performance of instrumental post rock. Kicking off the night will be one of the newest bands on the scene, Perilium. With a handful of quality shows and a recent album release under their belts, these four young lads are showing some serious potential.

IT IS TIME! FEED's DEBUT EP “All At Once Dreaming” IS READY TO LAUNCH AND YOU ARE INVITED!! The debut EP release for Brisbane progressive rock/metal 5 piece FEED, titled, All at Once Dreaming, is a catharsis of calculated aggression and delicate dynamics. The inspiration drawn from 70's prog, 90's alternative and current post rock/metal has produced a rich, textured body of work; featuring ominous, dissonant guitars, solid creative drumming, organic bass lines and dynamic vocals laced with biting socio-political commentary. A true tour de force of 2012! Engineered at Brisbane’s Iconic Black Box Studio’s, through Matt Taylor Recordings Brisbane. Mastered at West West Side Music New York by the renowned Alan Douches. The release of our EP will be accompanied by launch gigs in Brisbane at the Beetle Bar, on the 27th of April and on the Gold Coast at the Miami Tavern - Shark Bar, on the 12th of May. 12:00 - Adriatic www.reverbnation.com/adriaticband 11:00 - hung. www.hungtheband.com 10:00 - FEED (EP Launch) www.feed-music.com 9:00 - Echotide www.reverbnation.com/echotide 8:00 - Vayer www.reverbnation.com/vayer Entry $10 Doors @8pm

Bio: Capable of bringing rooms to a standstill, moving from vastly atmospheric and minimalist to symphonic and confronting, Echotide's kaleidoscopic, immersive wall of sound is an instrumental exploration of post, psychedelic and progressive rock.
