Victoria’s UNIFY Gathering has added one final band to its 2019 lineup, before the heavy music festival returns in January.
Melbourne-based rockers Pridelands have joined the UNIFY lineup, after claiming first place in a triple j Unearthed competition. The band will open the festival on Saturday, 12th January with their blend of metalcore and post-hardcore.
The five-piece — originally from Mount Gambier in South Australia — moved to Melbourne in 2014, and have since released debut EP Natives, second EP Any Colour You Desire and supported the likes of Dead Letter Circus, Northlane and Hellions.
Pridelands join a UNIFY lineup which already includes the likes of Underoath, Karnivool, In Hearts Wake, Taking Back Sunday and Every Time I Die. Catch the full lineup down below.
UNIFY Gathering 2019 — the fifth instalment of the festival — will take place in a new location, five kilometres from its original home at Tarwin Lower in South Gippsland, between Friday, 11th and Sunday, 13th January.
