Six piece progressive metal juggernaut, Periphery will be returning to Australia next week in support of their new album Periphery III: Select Difficulty
Representing the vanguard of addictive, chaotic, challenging and cathartically inviting heavy music for the modern era, Periphery's triple-guitar attack and rhythmic dexterity has won them a dedicated fanbase that encompasses subcultures ranging from the Vans Warped kid and the metalhead to the most dedicated Rush purist.
Adding fuel to the fire, a select few of Australia’s elite progressive bands have been chosen to join Periphery on this tour
Circles & Polaris for all shows except Perth, while in Perth Chaos Divine and Make Way For Man will opening the evening.
Melbourne’s uniquely different heavy music exponents, Circles, create a distinctive fusion of powerhouse progressive rhythms, soaring lead vocals, and dynamic songs that have turned heads all over the world,
with the UK’s Metal Hammer Magazine quoting that with their 'massive, bendy riffs. huge melodies. synapse-frazzling atmospherics. it's hard to imagine what more circles could do to assert their awesomeness’
Bursting on to the scene with their acclaimed debut EP, The Compass, in 2011, the band established themselves quickly through expansive touring, spreading word of their incredible live show nationwide. Their first full length, Infinitas arrived in 2013 via the prestigious UK label Basick Records which grew their international profile exponentially.
Several European festival appearances and a Euro tour with The Dillinger Escape Plan followed which ultimately enabled them to go out across the UK and Europe on their own headline tour soon after! Less than a year later they were back on the road in Europe once more on a 23 date tour with Monuments and After the Burial.
Circles incorporate new sounds, styles and production techniques into their already forward thinking ethos, suggesting the new album due sometime in 2017 will be something truly remarkable.
South Sydney Metalcore quintet, Polaris have built a reputation on the road for the last two years as one of the most exciting upcoming live acts in the Australian heavy scene.
Their second EP, The Guilt & The Grief was released 12 months ago and debuted at #34 on the ARIA chart and #1 on the AIR chart! Hitting the road in support of its release practically non stop for most of 2016, Polaris sold out most of their headline tour and went on to support acts such as Stories, Plini, Intervals and Parkway Drive. With the November tour with Northland and Hellions plus their recent appearance at the Unify Gathering, Polaris have fine tuned their live show to devastating effect.

PROGFEST: A festival that celebrates all things progressive is back for 2016!
The Corner Hotel in Melbourne will play host to the return of Progfest! Headlined by none other than Brisbane progressive powerhouse Caligula’s Horse, who will be playing as their exclusive Melbourne show on their Hands Shape Stone Australian tour. They will be joined by some of the nations finest progressive bands on Saturday, December 3.
Featuring progressive bands of all styles and genres, from prog, post, psychedelic, art rock, metal and everything in between, PROGFEST is about showcasing bands that think for themselves; bands who rather than following the latest trends, have decided to challenge themselves musically and create music with depth and vision.
Progfest was born in Melbourne in 2008 and soon expanded nationally to become a centrepiece of the Australian prog scene. In the intervening 8 years, the progressive scene in Australia has exploded and the bands associated with it are now a global force to be reckoned with. Many of the acts have gained huge followings from all over the world. Ne Obliviscaris, sleepmakeswaves and Twelve Foot Ninja have all headlined Progfest in the past and each of them have gone on to crack the Aria Mainstream chart and have global success.
