Live Oblivion 2010 will wind up Dreadnaught’s live schedule for the year comprising their final shows before taking some time out of the live scene to finish the writing of a new LP, due in 2011.
Since their inception in 1992, DREADNAUGHT have established themselves as a cornerstone for Australian heavy rock audiences. Never touted as the ‘next big thing’ or ‘flavour of the month’ as sub-genres and bands come and go, Dreadnaught never fail to provide their loyal fans, both old and new, with great rock and metal.
Having started the year strongly with their appearance at the Adelaide Big Day Out festival, SE BON KI RA are keen to end 2010 in a similar style, by thrashing their way around the country with good mates, good times and great metal. In 2011 the band will enter into writing and recording phase, with a full length release due out later in the year.
SE BON KI RA live shows are an intense combination of energetic passion and fun, based on the belief that heavy metal can be powerful and carry meaning without conveying the negativity often associated with the genre. The band takes pride in bringing honesty to their craft. There’s no unnecessary gloss or polish here, but there is lots of sweat and the occasional drop of blood.
Joining both bands on tour will be Victoria’s pure thrash metaller’s Desecrator, as well as other support from the likes of 4Arm (Vic), Lacerta (Tas), Red Bee (NSW), Squawk (NSW), Path of Pariah (Vic), ISAW (SA), Mammoth (SA), and Evilution(Vic).
Remember, it’s YOU, the metal-head that makes the metal scene work so get out and support some grassroots heavy music!!! Oblivion awaits …
