HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents, a deadly double, crossover thrash billDRI & HIRAX in Australia!!! Hardline are pleased to announce the return of DRI, and welcome, for their first time in Australia - HIRAX!!! 


BRISBANE, CANBERRA, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE and PERTH - GET READY - DRI & HIRAX are coming to get ya in early APRIL, 2020!


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


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 APRIL, 2020!!!



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 in APRIL 2020 for the first time! 


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

Geoff Tate - Australia 2020!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

REVOLUTION CALLING... AUSTRALIA! 

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

Sacred Reich Vio-lence Australian tour poster 2020 australia hardline media touring

Sacred Reich + Vio-lence - 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.

Jinjer Australian tour Australia 2020 Macro Hardline Media Touring Tatiana Shmailyuk Ukrainian metal

Jinjer - Australia 2020!

DATES ADDED - ADELAIDE & CANBERRA - PRE-SALE ON NOW!!!

HARDLINE MEDIA are pleased to announce the addition of 2 extra Jinjer shows! A Licensed - All Ages gig in ADELAIDE and 18+ show in CANBERRA! 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.
