UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled.
The American metalcore titans are celebrating 20 years of breaking necks around the world and they’ve decided to let Aussie fans in on the mayhem by jumping on board our biggest metal festival.
“Our 20th anniversary shows would not be complete without a trip to see our diehards in Oz and there’s no better place to be than Soundwave!” says frontman Jamey Jasta. “We are thrilled to be coming back to play a career spanning set & shred faces!”
The Hatebreed dudes, who were last here for Vans Warped Tour 2013, join nine other acts on the SW16 bill: metal supergroup Devil You Know, British rock juggernauts Bring Me The Horizon, Sydney metal champs Northlane, Swedish hardcore act Refused, Los Angeles alt-rockers Failure, Brisbane riffsters Dead Letter Circus, Welsh metal outfit Bullet For My Valentine 2006 Eurovision winners, Lordi and English rockers Moose Blood.
Early bird tickets are on sale now. Check out all the details below, or for all the latest Soundwave 2016 news and rumours, head to the Soundwave 2016 Lineup Rumours And Info page.
