After another monstrous sell-out in 2022, Froth & Fury Fest returns to Pirate Life Brewing in 2023 for another round of the loudest riffs and the tastiest beers in what is THE must-attend annual celebration of heavy, alternative, music and craft beers in South Australia.

So raise your glasses and your horns as we bring you the hand crafted brew for 2023…

One of Australia’s most exciting and beloved bands, Brisbane heavyweights The Butterfly Effect will bring Froth & Fury 2023 to a close with their emotionally charged, dark, melodic and energetic hard rock, complete with blazing riffs and soaring vocals.

It is an honour to welcome Californian punk/thrash/crossover legends Suicidal Tendencies to this year’s lineup. ST have simultaneously merged and broken musical boundaries and now forty years after the release of the first self-titled album, ST are still bringing the energy and aggression like it’s 1983 all over again. In 2023 the band is Mike Muir, Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan), Dean Pleasants, Tye Trujillo (son of Metallica‘s Robert, who was also part of ST’s rich history) and newest member Greyson Nekrutman on drums. We can already hear the ST, ST, ST chants ringing out into the night!

Returning to Adelaide for the first time since their reformation, Gold Coast nu-metal pioneers Sunk Loto are officially back, bigger and better than ever! Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the album that changed the game, their 2003 opus Between Birth and Death, this new Sunk Loto chapter is in full and thunderous swing and it’s clear that the best is truly only yet to come for the group who helped paved the way for the modern Australian heavy music renaissance.

If that triple treat wasn’t enough, then we have, Sydney alt.rock heavy hitters Redhook, Brisbane’s progressive alternative rock powerhouse Caligula’s Horse, Queensland pirate metal party machine Lagerstein, the ferocious intensity of The Amenta, The Simpsons‘ themed doom groovers Dr Colossus, Melbourne’s progressive djent masters Mirrors and the sonic horror of melodic blackened deathcore act Mélancolia.

On the local front we’ve got: Thrashers Hidden Intent who will have just returned from gracing the stage at the heavy metal holy land Wacken Open Air,one of the best metal bands to emerge from Adelaide in years – Freedom Of Fear, intense hardcore/punk powerhouse Stabbitha & The Knifey Wifeys, savage garage punk rawk n’rollers Cull The Band, progressive metallers Dyssidia, alt.rock punks Nocturnal Animals, metalcore maulers Relapse, death metal destructors Descend To Acheron and metalcore newcomers Vapours.
