Evergreen Terrace Cancels Soundwave 2015 Tour

Soundwave 2015 has lost an international act from its lineup with chief AJ Maddah revealing the news that Florida melodic hardcore act Evergreen Terrace have pulled out of the festival due to serious injuries suffered by the band’s drummer.

“Evergreen Terrace’s drummer has fallen of a ladder and sustained serious injuries. They have cancelled all shows incl #SW15,” Maddah tweeted this evening. The band have yet to make a statement on the cancelation. As of yet, no replacement has been announced.

The news comes just a day after Maddah commented that this was the first Soundwave festival where no bands have cancelled. The 2014 instalment of the festival saw multiple cancellations from the likes of Megadeth, Newsted, Sevendust, Desaparecidos, Whitechapel, Stone Temple Pilots, and Hardcore Superstar.

The news also adds to the conspiracy theory surrounding the curse of the Soundwave drummer.

Evergreen Terrace were due to play a 40 minute set on Slipknot/Smashing Pumpkins day of the upcoming festival and they took to Twitter earlier this year to ask fans to share their with them their “perfect set” suggestions. They had yet to announce any Sidewaves.

Despite this loss the Soundwave lineup has grown in the last few days, with the addition of triple j’s Unearthed Soundwave competition winners. Punks Bare Bones will open the Sydney leg of the festival, joining fellow recently-announced victors I, Valiance who will play the Melbourne leg and A Ghost Orchestra who are opening in Adelaide.

The Brisbane winner of the triple j’s Unearthed competition will be announced via triple j’s ShortFastLoud program, tonight.

UPDATE 12/02/15: A GoFundMe page has been created by the wife of Evergreen Terrace drummer Brad Moxey, to help raise funds for his recovery. Further details of Moxey’s accident have been shared on the GoFundMe page, revealing that he fell onto a brick sidewalk while working on a house.
