Sci-fi thrash metal prog-punks Voïvod are celebrating thirty-five years on the warpath, and are rrröööaaarrring into 2019 in the best possible way for Australian fans with four big East Coast shows kicking off next week!
Riding high on the critical success of last year’s compelling album The Wake, fans can look forward to a machine pummelling cruise on the Voïvod spacecraft through career defining albums Killing Technology, Dimension Hatröss, Nothingface, Angel Rat and The Outer Limits plus choice tracks from their most recent releases.
“…the heaviness of any band that we listened to was gauged by how they live up to Voivod… and nobody ever did.” – Dave Grohl
Voïvod enjoyed a massive 2018 and are kicking 2019 off with a run of Aussie shows next week. Support acts for each city have been confirmed with the bills shaping up thusly:
Brisbane, Wednesday January 23rd, Crow Bar – Wartooth & Asylum
Canberra, Thursday January 24th, The Basement – Contrive & Lucifungus
Sydney, Friday January 25th, Crow Bar – Contrive, Head In A Jar & Carbon Black
Melbourne, Saturday January 26, Max Watts – Contrive, El Colosso & In Malice’s Wake
“Voïvod are one of the most underrated and unrecognised outfits in metal. You know it and I know it. They really deserve the recognition from this generation of metal music lovers who don’t quite know about Voïvod and their incredible influence throughout the years” – Jason Newsted
