KARNIVOOL announce their first & only Australian tour for 2011

They’ve toured their highly acclaimed ‘Sound Awake’ album all around the world, and now Karnivool’s eager Australian fans need wait no more as the Perth sonic maelstrom announce an extensive Australian tour taking place throughout June and into July.

The band will travel to capital cities on the East Coast, into regional North Queensland (finally!) and finish in Adelaide whilst stopping at some key regional centres along the way.

 It’s Karnivool’s first full Australian tour since the New Day tour in June and July 2010, but they’ve hardly sat on their hands since then… as soon as the last slab of fat bottom end rang out from that run, the band got on a plane and headed to Europe to play on the main stage at Sonisphere Festival in the UK (along with Slayer, Alice in Chains, Pendulum and Iron Maiden) before spending 5 weeks headlining throughout the US and Canada.

 Not content with this they again crossed continents headlining and selling out major venues throughout mainland Europe and the UK, proving that not even Europe’s coldest winter in a decade could keep the band off the road.

Having your merch snowed in and selling out iconic venues like the Melkweg in Amsterdam and Scala in London was a new experience for Karnivool, but added to the fun!

In news sure to be welcomed by their forever patient fan base, Karnivool have been writing solidly in the rehearsal room since their last Australian tour and in great news for fans the band will be sharing some new tracks with audiences on this tour.

It will be the first airing of new material since ‘Sound Awake’, an album which helped establish the band’s worldwide reputation, who knows what direction this new batch of songs will take!

Karnivool tours are known to sell out in record time, so get in quick as this will be the first and only Australian tour from the band in 2011!
