Soundwave 2012 organisers will be releasing the timetables for Sydney and Brisbane this week, with Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth to follow sometime next week. Something to note is that Brisbane will be without Canadian pop-punk sextet These Kids Wear Crowns, who won’t be able to make it to Australia in time to play on that date. They will instead be playing a sold-out arena show with Simple Plan.
