American deathcore titans Chelsea Grin are set to bring their brutal live show to Australian shores this August, with a national tour announced in support of the band’s latest album, Ashes To Ashes.
Chelsea Grin last toured Australia in 2013, as part of The Amity Affliction’s Brothers In Arms tour. The band made their Australian debut earlier that year, touring as part of Soundwave 2013.
Chelsea Grin vocalist Alex Koehler says Ashes to Ashes, which will no doubt get a workout during the band’s upcoming Australian tour, sees the Utah outfit achieving complete cohesion. “On this album, I feel like we’ve finally found who we are. This record is exactly what we wanted it to be,” Koehler says.
Supporting Chelsea Grin’s 2015 Australian tour will be Melbourne deathcore act Boris The Blade, who will be stepping out on their first Aussie tour of the year after a 65-date stint supporting the likes of Oceano and Sepultura in the US, as well as their own headline shows.
Chelsea Grin’s 2015 Australian tour is sure to be one of the most brutal deathcore tours of the year. It all kicks off in Perth on Thursday, 13th August. View full tour and ticket details, below.
