This year’s Movember is going to be bigger, and heavier than ever with the announcement of the massive Movember Mayhem Tour. The 4-band bill features Australia’s greatest post-hardcore exports, and, well, one of America’s.
Taking away headliner position is Melbourne lads Dream On, Dreamer. Having spent much of the year simply taking the world by storm, the band will be returning to their homeland for the run of dates. The band released their debut album Heartbound to an already huge following, which has grown at an almost unstoppable rate over the past 2 years. As a special G-up for fans, record label UNFD will be releasing a delux version of Heartbound to commemorate the tour. Diehard DOD fans should check the dates as there are some there that don’t feature the band.
All the way from the other side of Australia, Make Them Suffer will be handling the main support duties for the tour. The Roadrunner Records’ champions released their debut full-length Neverbloom not too long ago, and it seems to have done the trick, shooting the band up to the highest levels of the scene, given the level of professionalism found on the album.
Making the treck down from the native land of So-Cal, In Fear and Faith will be bringing some international flavour to the tour. Already solidified in the annals of post-hardcore lore, In Fear and Faith will be heading down with an impressive two-album arsenal and a live performance as wild as you’ll ever see. This is one band that has nothing to prove, but rest assured, they still will, come show time.
Also coming in from WA for the tour, and capping off the bill, is Perth outfit Savours. Having spent the better part of the band’s life operating at a self-reliant level, the band signed with Skull and Bones records only at the start of the year. Since inking the deal, Savour have released their debut album Once We Were Lions. The release is consistent with the sound of a band fast coming into their own.
Tickets will be available through Moshtix; Wednesday, 31st October 2012, 9am AEST
