High Tension – Ferocious Punk/Metal from Melbourne deliver a blistering live show to melt your face clean off. Rising from the ashes of treasured disco-punks Young & Restless, The Nation Blue and Love Like Electrocution, they have recently finished touring with The Bronx, High on Fire and Violent Soho.
Cairo Knife Fight – the brainchild of New Zealand born / LA based songwriter/ multi instrumentalist Nick Gaffaney, push the limits of what two musicians can do on one stage. Feted by their peers and hand picked to tour with Them Crooked Vultures, Queens Of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters, the band have an astonishing debut album in the wings and are launching in Australia with the first single ‘Rezlord’
FVEY isn’t an album a band 26 years into their career should be making but Shihad haven’t been this potent since 1999s The General Electric
New Zealand Herald – 5 Stars
For the uninitiated, imagine The Deftones meets Led Zeppelin playing in Henry Rollins’ head as he works out. Hatts off to Shihad, and judging by this, you simply must see them live at the first opportunity.

Is as good, if not better, than anything in their back catalogue.
