Kublai Khan TX Announce 2024 Australian Tour

Kublai Khan TX will return to Australia for a headlining tour in August 2024. It comes less than a year after the Texan metalcore band were last in the country, touring as a support act for PolarisFatalism Australian tour alongside August Burns Red and Currents. These dates will also serve as the band’s first-ever headlining tour locally; they first toured Australia in 2017 supporting The Acacia Strain, returning in 2022 as guests of Justice For The Damned.

Joining Kublai Khan TX as main support for the tour will be Terror. The Los Angeles hardcore veterans last toured Australia in January 2020, making them one of the last heavy international acts to tour prior to the pandemic. They are touring in belated support of their 2022 album Pain Into Power, as well as to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album One With The Underdogs.

Kublai Khan TX – ‘Low Tech’

Also on the bill are UK band Guilt Trip, marking their maiden voyage to Australia. Described as “the new generation of Manchester hardcore”, the band are touring in support of their second studio album Severance. It was released in September of 2023, and featured guest appearances from members of Malevolence and Lower Than Atlantis.

Rounding out the bill is Newcastle hardcore band Splinter, who will open every show on the tour save for Hobart and Perth. Last week saw the band release their debut EP, entitled The Hill I’ll Die On.
