Jinjer Australian tour 2020 Macro Micro Tatiana Shmailyuk Ukrainian metal hardline media touring

JINJER - AUSTRALIA 2020!

PRE-SALE ON NOW!!!

HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents, for the first time in Australia ……. JINJER!!!


With their new album “MACRO” dropping this October, 2019 - MELBOURNE, SYDNEY and BRISBANE get ready for the hugely anticipated, live, debut down under in MARCH 2020 of this mind-blowing band!


In less than 10 years, the four-piece Progressive Groove Metal wrecking machine known as JINJER have carved their very own place in the Heavy Metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond. 


Hailing from Donetsk, this Ukrainian musical phenomenon formed in 2009 but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and femme fatale Tatiana Shmailyuk in 2010. The band laboured intensively and honed their sound in practice rooms and local stages relentlessly, culminating in their now cult, first album release “INHALE, DON’T BREATHE” in 2012. The following year JINJER were nominated and won Best Ukrainian Metal Band. They would be awarded this prize again a few years later.


While most bands from a country not exactly known for it's Heavy Metal exports would be content to enjoy the little recognition received in those first few years, it was clear that JINJER craved more and were willing to go the extra mile to make this happen. It was this attitude and clear vision that pushed the band to quickly write and release their second album “CLOUD FACTORY” (2014), and venture into the international touring market for the first time - booking their own shows and building their reputation face to face, fan to fan and more importantly under their own terms. 


It was this intensity that caught the attention of NAPALM RECORDS, who quickly signed JINJER leading to the release of their critically acclaimed third album “KING OF EVERYTHING” (2016)… As well as the release of their game-changing single and video for “PISCES”, which gained the band new fans, over 20 million of views/streams and countless reaction videos on YouTube. “KING OF EVERYTHING” showcased the musical prowess and growth of the entire band while opening the floodgates to a bigger international touring circuit, which JINJER gladly took advantage of. By the end of nearly two years of non-stop touring in Europe, JINJER added new territories such as Israel, Phillipines, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, America, Canada and most of Latin America, while sharing the festival stages and touring with the likes of Arch enemy, Cradle of Filth and DevilDriver, to mention a few.


Somewhere between touring vans, roadside pit stops, backstage rooms, sound checks, hotel rooms, visa applications and flights to tour destinations, JINJER buried themselves in the rehearsal room once again to compose 5 brand new tracks for what would become the “MICRO” EP - written not only for the fans but for themselves, as they needed something new to keep their sanity on the road.


Released on the 11th of January 2019 and coinciding with the start of their European Tour together with Soilwork and Amorphis, the “MICRO” EP was received with open arms from fans and critics alike. Songs “APE” and “PERENNIAL” became instant favourites, climbing to the top of many industry charts and radio station lists worldwide. And once again showcased the musical depth and phenomenal songwriting talent of the band, as well as Tatiana’s amazing vocal range.


Get ready for MARCH 2020… with their new album “MACRO” on the airwaves, Australia is set to be blown away by JINJER: face-meltingly impressive live… Don’t miss your chance to see some of Metal’s absolute finest.

---------------


You got it Aus… for the first time in Australia and for a very rare run of shows, DARK ANGEL have reformed and hit Australian shores for a very limited number of appearances.


The legends themselves, GENE HOGLAN (drums), JIM DURKIN (guitar), RON RINEHART (vocals), ERIC MEYER (guitar) and MICHAEL GONZALEZ (bass) will appear in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in SEPTEMBER of 2019. 


DARK ANGEL formed in 1983 in Downey, California, right around the time when the Bay Area thrash movement was beginning to take place. They played in local bars and clubs, acquiring a cult following in the metal underground. The band began recording and releasing several demos until late 1984, when they released their debut studio album ‘WE HAVE ARRIVED’.


In 1986, Dark Angel released their second studio album, ‘DARKNESS DESCENDS’, which is widely considered to be their seminal release. Around the same time, several other thrash metal bands such as Metallica also released seminal albums and started to gain more popularity.


Following the release, three more efforts would follow: ‘LEAVE SCARS’ in 1989, a live album, ‘LIVE SCARS’ in 1990, an apparent pun of their previous album, and what would eventually become the band's final album, ‘TIME DOES NOT HEAL’, in 1991. Time Does Not Heal shows increasingly progressive song structures (famously advertising its "246 riffs") and Hoglan's lyrics dealing with psychological issues and trauma.


In 1992, despite working on a fifth album, DARK ANGEL announced they were breaking up to pursue individual careers. However 27 years later, Hardline Media are stoked to be welcoming the reformed band to Australia.

From Gene;
 

"I’m really excited for my upcoming Australian clinic (and of course for the Dark Angel shows as well).


For  those who attended my clinic tours in 2001 and 2008, y’all already know  that I like to keep them real loose, and real entertaining. And most  importantly, real inclusionary for ALL. Of course I am there to impart  some wisdom and experience regarding drum techniques and approaches, but  I am also all about fun and good times for everyone who attends.


I  purposely ‘wing’ every clinic I’ve ever done, in order to make each one a  unique, ‘one-of-a-kind’ experience for everyone. Do you have to be a  drummer to enjoy a Gene clinic? Hell no, you don’t even have to be a  musician! Again, indeed I’ll be doling out the drum-tips and secrets,  but a Gene clinic goes so far and above that in terms of inclusionary  entertainment for all those who are there. For those drummers and  musicians, it will be one of the best clinics you’ve ever attended. And  for the ‘non-musicians who are there, it will be the best clinic you’ve  ever been to, flat-out!


I think everybody who shows up will be  walking out with a giant smile on their face, knowing that that was a  couple hours very enjoyably spent. And I’m really looking forward to  seeing all of you there! Bring your fun pants!"

Richie Ramone - Australia 2019!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

RICHIE RAMONE: AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2019!!!


HEY HO! LET’S GO!


HARDLINE MEDIA are pleased to announce the return of RICHIE RAMONE to Australia, just in time for the countdown to Christmas, in DECEMBER 2019!


The famed punk drummer is set for a killer run of shows in HOBART, SYDNEY, BRISBANE, MELBOURNE, CANBERRA and ADELAIDE!


“Australia is a long way from where I live in LA so it’s kinda hard to get there very often. But I love Australia, I love the fans there, and I look forward to setting these clubs on fire. Aussie’s love to rock, and we’re bringing it!” - RICHIE RAMONE


Aussie punks and rockers get ready for a full throttle set with Richie singing lead AND drumming, or mic in hand, front and centre … in the crowd, sharing the mic around to fans - an in your face, high octane show with all the intensity of a classic RAMONES performance, with that extra Richie rockin’ kick.


The famed punk drummer is best known for his time on the stool as the drummer for the RAMONES and is the only RAMONES drummer credited as the sole writer and composer of six RAMONES songs. He is also acknowledged as being the only RAMONES drummer who ever sang lead vocals in some tracks. Richie joined the band before the release of “Subterranean Jungle” in 1983. He went on to perform on RAMONES albums such as “Too Tough to Die”, “Animal Boy” and “Halfway to Sanity”. Most notably, he wrote the hit RAMONES’ song “Someone Put Something in My Drink”, which is featured on the album “Ramones Mania” - the first RAMONES album to go platinum. He also penned songs “Smash You”, “I’m Not Better Now”, “Humankind”, “You Can’t Say Anything Nice” and “I’m Not Jesus”. Richie’s songs “Someone Put Something In My Drink” and “I’m Not Jesus” have been covered by many bands, including CHILDREN OF BODOM and BEHEMOTH.


"Richie's very talented and he's very diverse . . . He really strengthened the band a hundred percent because he sings backing tracks, he sings lead, and he sings with Dee Dee's stuff. In the past, it was always just me singing for the most part.” - JOEY RAMONE


He has also worked on some of DEE DEE RAMONES’ solo recordings, and in bands the ROCK N ROLL RATS and the GOBSHITES.


This December, Richie arrives in Australia fresh off the back of a packed run of shows in the US and South America. And after the release of his highly commended book “I Know Better Now”. He is also set to appear in a horror/comedy flick “Headcheese” later this year.


From behind the kit, to amongst the pit - you will not want to miss RICHIE RAMONE live in action!

GEOFF TATE’S OPERATION MINDCRIME -  AUSTRALIAN SHOWS 2020!


LIMITED PRE-SALE EARLYBIRD TICKETS - ON SALE NOW ONLY AT: WWW.HARDLINEMEDIA.NET!


HARDLINE MEDIA proudly present GEOFF TATE’S OPERATION MINDCRIME! 


The legendary frontman returns to Australia with his band to perform the classic concept album “Operation Mindcrime” in its entirety, and much more! BRISBANE, SYDNEY and MELBOURNE get ready!


Multi-platinum selling, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter GEOFF TATE is regarded as one of the most skilled and iconic vocalists in the rock and metal genres. His soaring vocals combined with his complex, lyrical content and full band, provide a backdrop for a rare live experience. A voice. An album. A band. Not to be missed.


After a long, successful and critically acclaimed international run for the 30th Anniversary of “Operation Mindcrime” throughout 2018 and 2019, Geoff and the band will grace Aussie shores with a much anticipated performance of the entire album, followed by many more hits.


“Tate didn’t sound just good, let me tell you. He sounded fantastic. From start to finish, Tate was simply stellar. ‘I Remember Now’ blared through the speakers to start things off as the band prepared for the evening. ‘Anarchy-X’ then was played as Tate emerged for the start of ‘Revolution Calling.’ What followed next was Tate and his band playing one of, if not the best albums ever made, period… Tate does not disappoint.” - Shockwave Magazine


Check out Geoff and the band performing ‘Suite Sister Mary’ live here:

Sacred Reich + Vio-lence: Thrashfest Australia 2020!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!!

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 FEBRUARY, 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.
