After selling out shows in Australia the last time they were here, the DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES are set to pack it out down under yet again!


Formed in ’82 in Houston, Texas, DRI recorded their first release that year, packing 22 songs into 18 minutes of their cult classic EP debut “THE DIRTY ROTTEN EP”. With only 1000 copies pressed, demand caused the EP to be released on LP in 1983… and so was born the DIRTY ROTTEN LP. A huge inspiration for new bands at the time and a recording that had the band named the fastest band in the world.


In ’84 they released a follow up EP “VIOLENT PACIFICATION”. Then came the release of their second, full length album “DEALING WITH IT” (1985) saw the band take a distinct METAL direction, whilst still remaining utterly HARDCORE. And so their CROSSOVER THRASH years began, to a now cult status. Supported by such fans as DAVE LOMBARDO (SLAYER), who is often heard shouting out DRI as a huge influence on him.


Their aptly-named third album “CROSSOVER” (1987), further confirmed their redirection to a more thrash metal sound - with the songs becoming slower, longer and more complex. Henceforth, DRI became the leaders of the “crossover” movement, a style that combined PUNK, HARDCORE and METAL. Albums followed including “FOUR OF A KIND” (1988), "THRASH ZONE" (1989), "DEFINITION" (1992), "LIVE" (their first live album, released in 1994) and "FULL SPEED AHEAD" (1995).


Understandably, a busy decade of touring the world, extensively, followed. In 2015, the band made it back to the studio, recording the long-awaited “BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE” EP (released 2016). And once again, this hard-working band began touring the world again for their, pun intended, hardcore legion of fans - many of whom have been fans for nearly 40 years! Thrashing as hard as ever, Australia get ready for some DRI mayhem in February, 2021!!!



FOR THEIR FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA - HIRAX ARE HEADING DOWN UNDER!!!


Hailing from Los Angeles, thrash metal legends HIRAX emerged under the leadership of vocalist KATON W DE PENA in 1984. Gigging extensively in the formative years of the SAN FRANCISCO METAL scene alongside bands like SLAYER, METALLICA and EXODUS, HIRAX became a steadfast must-see of the BAY AREA THRASH movement. ’84 also saw the release of their now legendary four-song demo, which became feverishly traded in the underground metal scene and helped them become known and respected worldwide. The band is a solid, early example of the THRASH, SPEED and CROSSOVER THRASH METAL genres.


In 1985, HIRAX released their debut “RAGING VIOLENCE” to rave reviews. The album “HATE, FEAR AND POWER” followed in 1986 and they independently released the demo “BLASTED IN BANGKOK” in 1987.


The band continued their career, with various line-ups and releases including albums “THE NEW AGE OF TERROR” (2004), “EL ROSTRO DE LA MUERTE” (2009) and “IMMORTAL LEGACY” (2014). 


Finally, after all these years, HIRAX hit Australian shores for the first time! 


Don’t miss your chance to witness an epic night of original Bay Area Crossover Thrash!

Nashville Pussy - Australia 2020!

RESCHEDULED DATES - TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!!

NASHVILLE PUSSY - AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2020!!!


HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents the band King Lemmy himself dubbed “America’s last great Rock ’n’ Roll band” - NASHVILLE PUSSY!!!


CANBERRA, MELBOURNE, SYDNEY, BRISBANE and PERTH - GET READY - NASHVILLE PUSSY will be in you!


TICKETS ON SALE NOW - RESCHEDULED DATES - TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!!: WWW.HARDLINEMEDIA.NET - Limited VIP Meet & greet packages available.


Having packed out their shows last time they were here, get ready for some sweaty, rockin’ nights Australia!!!


Raised on a diet of Marshall stacks, Gibson Guitars, Jack Daniels and weed, NASHVILLE PUSSY is the bastard offspring of foul-mouthed, demented, hillbilly, ice-cream man Blaine Cartwright and tractor driving, nude art school model, guitar prodigy Ruyter Suys. Born deep in the Baptist Bible Belt of Kentucky, USA – Blaine Cartwright used The Ramones and The New York Dolls to maintain sanity. Meanwhile in Vancouver, Canada, 8 year old, hippie kid Ruyter Suys picked up her father’s guitar and started playing along with Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. 


“We got married on a dare after dropping acid, Nashville Pussy is our baby,” says Suys. 


Hitting the road trippin’, Nashville Pussy quickly gained a reputation for being like “AC/DC with a female Angus” in Ruyter’s blues meets punk frenzied guitar solos and Blaine’s hilarious “jailhouse nursery rhyme” lyrics. Rowdy and unpretentious; Nashville Pussy got voted ‘best local band’ in opposite ends of the country their first year of touring.


Their debut album “Let Them Eat Pussy” was recorded and mixed in 5 days for $3,000, picked up by Mercury Records for a million dollar contract during a signing freeze. Their track “Fried Chicken And Coffee” was soon nominated for a Grammy, for Best Metal Performance. 


Six studio albums later, the band has now played in front of hundreds of thousands of fans in nearly forty countries, sharing stages with some of the biggest bands on the planet, including ZZ Top, Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Sk and of course Motörhead, with whom they’ve played every rock outpost from Asia to Europe alongside, time and again.


“If there’s been a better band than Nashville Pussy to open for Motörhead, I’ve never heard them” – Lemmy


So, take it from The Man Australia, DON’T MISS OUT ON NASHVILLE PUSSY (appropriately) DOWN UNDER!

PRE-SALE ON NOW!

VENOM INC & EXCITER - AUSTRALIA 2020 TOUR!!!


HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents, a deadly double bill… VENOM INC & EXCITER!!! After a testing yet triumphant 2019, Hardline are pleased to announce the return of VENOM INC in 2020, and welcome, for their first time in Australia - EXCITER!!! 


CANBERRA, SYDNEY, BRISBANE, MELBOURNE and ADELAIDE - GET READY - VENOM INC & EXCITER are coming at ya in JUNE, 2020!


PRE-SALE TICKETS ON SALE TOMORROW, FRIDAY 13 DECEMBER @ 10AM AEST! ONLY AT: WWW.HARDLINEMEDIA.NET - Limited VIP Meet & greet packages available.


Having left Australia wanting more the last time they were here, VENOM INC are set to pack it out down under yet again!

 

Formed as Venom in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. And coming to prominence towards the end of the New Wave of British heavy metal, Venom's first two albums ‘Welcome to Hell’ (1981) and ‘Black Metal’ (1982)—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general. 


Venom's second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of an extreme Metal sub-genre: Black Metal.


During the 80’s, Venom were THE extreme band, releasing more classic albums such as ‘At War With Satan’ (1984), ‘Possessed’ (1985) and countless classic, live albums, such as the ‘Assault Live’ album series and the legendary ‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’ (1986) Double LP and the ‘The Seventh Date of Hell: Live At Hammersmith Odeon’ Video which helped launch Metallica, who were the support band for Venom’s tour.


Following Cronos’ departure from the band, Tony Dolan (The Demolition Man) from Atomkraft, stepped in filling Cronos’ big, red boots, most admirably. And recording four releases with Venom: ‘Prime Evil’ (1989), ‘Tear Your Soul Apart’ (1990), ‘Temples of Ice’ (1991), and ‘The Waste Lands’ (1992).


Hardline are looking forward to welcoming Venom Inc back after their highly successful Avé Australis Tour in 2018, and the infamously killer, one-off Venom Inc Frankie’s appearance, just last week. Don’t miss out on the band, full throttle, in 2020!


FOR THEIR FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA - EXCITER ARE HEADING DOWN UNDER!!!


LONG LIVE THE LOUD!!! Exciter are coming! Hailing from Ottawa Canada, and formed in 1978, Australia finally gets a dose of Speed/Thrash Metal demons Exciter!


Named after the Judas Priest song, Exciter are considered to be one of the originals of the Speed and Thrash Metal genres. In 1983 they released their first album, ‘Heavy Metal Maniac’, on Shrapnel Records. Later that year, they signed a deal with Jon Zazula’s Megaforce Records, which led to the 1984 release of their second album ‘Violence and Force’. This material was toured on bills opening for Anthrax and Mercyful Fate. History would bring many more revered releases by the band, such as ‘Long Live the Loud’ (1985), and ‘Unveiling the Wicked' (1986), to name just a couple. More tours also followed, with bands like Accept, Manowar, Motörhead and Megadeth.


It is with much anticipation, that we finally welcome Exciter to Aussie shores!


Don’t miss your chance to witness this epic double bill live in June, 2020!!!

SACRED REICH + VIO-LENCE: AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2020!!!


Fresh of the back of a huge run of international shows, Hardline Media are absolutely stoked to announce that SACRED REICH & VIO-LENCE will be heading down under in late JULY, 2020 for an epic thrash double bill!


SACRED REICH - BACK FOR A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO AUS!!!

After a 25 year wait, Hardline Media are thrilled to welcome back SACRED REICH to Aussie shores. 


Formed in 1985, in Phoenix, Arizona, SACRED REICH are credited with being leaders of the second wave of thrash metal in the 80's, alongside TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL and DARK ANGEL. With their socially conscious and political brand of speed metal, SACRED REICH released a brutal run of albums on Metal Blade Records and Hollywood Records, notably EP’s “Draining You of Life” (1986), “Surf Nicaragua” (1988), “A Question” (1991) and album’s “Ignorance” (1987), “The American Way” (1990), “Independent” (1993), “Heal” (1996)…And…


2019 brought the much anticipated release of the bands’ fifth studio album “Awakening” to rave reviews and the return of powerhouse Dave McClain on drums (MACHINE HEAD) to the SACRED REICH stronghold. Hardline Media are pumped to welcome back legends McClain, Phil Rind (vocals, bass), Wiley Arnett (lead guitar) and new member Joey Radziwill (rhythm guitar) for a killer run of shows down under. Don’t miss SACRED REICH prove that:

“Thrash has never really gone away… The mosh pit hoovers up the bands back catalogue and responds with a guttural almost Nordic roar.” - ORIGINAL ROCK



VIO-LENCE - FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA!!!

Re-united and playing their first shows in over a decade to sold out crowds, thrash legends VIO-LENCE are NOT TO BE MISSED.


Formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1985, VIO-LENCE instilled themselves as groundbreakers of the second wave of thrash with their revered 1988 album “Eternal Nightmare”. Throughout ’88 and ’89, VIO-LENCE toured the album to great success alongside thrash comrades TESTAMENT, VOIVOD, DEATH ANGEL, SANCTUARY, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, D.R.I., M.O.D. and the CRO-MAGS. In ’89, Megaforce Records/Atlantic signed the band, leading to the release of the bands’ second album  “Oppressing the Masses” (1990). The band toured the album to packed crowds alongside OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EXODUS, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, DEFIANCE, RIGOR MORTIS and PRONG.


In 1991, VIO-LENCE released their EP “Torture Tactics” and their third studio album “Nothing to Gain”.


1993 brought the unfortunate break-up of the band, with some members splintering off to form TORQUE and MACHINE HEAD. Some 26 years later, and re-united at last as VIO-LENCE, Hardline Media are looking forward to welcoming Phil Demmel (lead guitar), Deen Dell (bass), Sean Killian (vocals), Perry Strickland (drums) and Ray Vegas (rhythm guitar) as they unleash their hefty sound and stage presence to the Aussie masses:

“I doubt I’ll see a display of audience passion and insanity comparable to what I witnessed and felt during Vio-lence‘s set in a very long time” - Rob Shepyer (JANKY SMOOTH)


This is a once in a lifetime thrash double bill down under… get pumped.

Abbath Outstrider Australian Australia tour 2020 Hardline Media buy tickets

Abbath - Australia 2020!

PRE-SALE ON NOW!

TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT! - ABBATH - AUSTRALIA 2020!!!


HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents the return down under of ABBATH!!! 


CANBERRA, BRISBANE, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE and HOBART - GET READY - ABBATH descends in SEPTEMBER, 2020!


PRE-SALE TICKETS ON SALE NOW ONLY AT: WWW.HARDLINEMEDIA.NET - Limited VIP Meet & greet packages available.


Touring their most recent album, ‘OUTSTRIDER’, Australia get set for round two of purely ABBATH blackened mayhem. The legendary ex frontman of IMMORTAL returns to AUSTRALIA with this highly acclaimed album and unforgettable stage show in SEPTEMBER 2020.


When ABBATH announced that he had left IMMORTAL, it sent massive shockwaves through the Metal scene. The iconic frontman had long become the "face" of the NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL scene, his image synonymous with the genre. Upon releasing his debut album with his eponymous new band in 2016, ABBATH’s true fans were satiated with a dose of icy, blackened fury.


Now, the Norwegian giant returns for round two, armed with a refined lineup and ready to strike with a sophomore effort that is sure to once again exceed the expectations of ABBATH’s loyal fanbase.


Whilst harking somewhat back to an IMMORTAL sound, ABBATH draws from NWOBM and MELODIC METAL influences, adding a fresh new flavour to the sound that the band’s founder came to define. 


‘OUTSTRIDER’ consists of eight, crushing original songs and concludes with a fiery BATHORY cover. These shows will deliver a full-on, aural assault from start to finish with frigid riffage and a robust set list that are layered with vocals from one of the most identifiable voices in BLACK METAL. If you thought ABBATH came in hot with their last visit, just wait until you see this!
