That’s right, it’s almost that time again. Saturday, April 2nd it all kicks off, METAL UNITED DOWN UNDER. With twelve shows across the continent, along with two new locations added to the list, making it to a show near you is an absolute must this coming weekend!
In Sydney, we have Red Sea’s Farewell show, and they will be going out with a bang. Joining them will be local legends Carbon Black, Victoria K, Age of Emergence, and Upside Down Miss Jane. Carbon Black will also be launching their new single ‘Under Order’ as part of the festivities going down at Crowbar.
As a Sydney band says goodbye, a new band joins the scene in Darwin. Thrash band Akrasia will be performing their first show at the Happy Yess, opening for Indestructable Horse and March of Days.
Other exciting additions to the Metal United Down Under Tour are the inclusion of shows in Sunbury and Katoomba- a first in MUDU history. Bands Dark Order, Vexation and Age of Emergence are also including appearances at MUDU as part of their tours. You can catch Dark Order at Dapto, Vexation at Sunbury, and of course, Age of Emergence in Sydney.
Other locations not mentioned yet are Canberra, Melbourne, Newcastle, Orange, Perth, and Port Pirie. For more information on where you can catch Metal United Down Under in your state this Saturday, head to metal-united-down-under.com.au
In the past 8 years, MUDU has compiled quite its share of metal history… from bands who played their first live show to bands who make a comeback from a hiatus, as well as the bands dominating the Aussie scene who now have record deals and touring regularly overseas. So many incredible memories have been made along the journey and we can’t wait to see what MUDU 2022 has to bring!
“Unite again for one night across our great Southern Lands and celebrate Heavy F****** Metal! We shall make it one massive showcase of the best local talent we have!”
United We Stand, Divided We Fall! \m/
