Big Ass Tour – Auckland New Zealand 2015
Posted: Nov 16 2015
The Amity Affliction and A Day To Remember Coming to NZ
The Amity Affliction and A Day To Remember combine forces to bring one of the biggest shows to NZ shores. This December get your dancing shoes on, slip on your bogan tshirt because you gotta get ready for what's about to go down. Big Ass Tour here we come!
The Amity Affliction
One of Australia’s most accomplished bands, the Amity Affliction come to deliver an absolute spectacle for the NZ eardrums. What some have described as a “modern phenomenon” there is no denying that TAA will be supported by a hearty mosh pit. The sing along to No Intro is going to be loud, let alone Don’t Lean on Me - that’ll be raw. 12 Years into the game, Brisbane based post-hardcore/metalcore band shows no sign of stopping releasing their fourth Studio album Let the Ocean Take Me in 2014. The melodies are on point, the riffs are tight, you won’t want to miss this.
A Day To Remember
“You can’t say no to A Day To Remember” – Joel Birch, The Amity Affliction. Also 12 years deep, ADTR are another legendary band in their own right. Hailing from Florida, it’s long way to come, but what better way to warm your hearts this summer. With the perfect blend of pop punk beats with metal core energy this will definitely be the band blasting on the road trip this summer. Keep your hopes up high and your head down low…
The Ghost Inside
A personal favorite, American hardcore/metalcore band The Ghost Inside return to NZ to stir the pit once again. Having released their fourth album late last year, we’re all pumped to hear Dear Youth live. The vibe is catchy, the energy is unsettled and it’s heart-liftingly positive. The Ghost inside come as the torch in what can some time be a dark and desolate music scene.
Motionless in White
Motionless come to the table with a slightly different vibe. Described as a blend of industrial metal, goth metal and metalcore, MIW have a distinctive taste. Most recent album Reincarnate received all-round positive reviews. With tighter riffs, and louder pounding industrial drum styles, the live performance can only be something epically sick.
