Rising from the ashes of the chaos and wastes called the collective human experience of the last three years, Sydney metallic hardcore juggernaut Justice For The Damned return to the stages with their biggest headline tour to date this November, and bringing their friends Kublai Khan (USA), Sanction (USA), and Honest Crooks along on their aptly named Emerge From The Fire Australian Tour.
Since day one, Justice For The Damned have been grinding their way through the Australian heavy scene to create a sound that no one can deny. The aggression in their music is unrivaled, and that hard work lead them to their ground breaking sophomore album Pain Is Power which landed itself in the top 20 on the ARIA album charts. Following on from the success of Pain Is Power, the band has toured relentless both home and overseas, sharing stages with Polaris, Thy Art Is Murder, and good friends Kublai Khan, who now join them on this run of shows in Australia.
Kublai Khan turn hardships into hypnotic and heavy metalcore upheld by nimble metallic fury and pit splitting spirit. Grinding for over a decade, the Texas four piece put all their trials and tribulations into their latest album "Absolute". From the aptly titled 'Self Destruct' which shines a light on the truth that humanity is heading towards an end of their own doing, to "The Truest Love" that shines a light on the importance of responsibility in family, there is no stones left unturned, and the musical and lyrical violence makes these messages impossible to ignore.
Sanction have developed a large underground following throughout the world with their ability to perfectly blend groove and heavy into a hardcore package that was exemplified on their most recent release “Broken In Refraction”. Honest Crooks, have stuck to their guns their entire career, and it has lead them to truly earning the title Hellsworth’s Heaviest. Their most recent single “Serpent Of Old” is a furious ride from start to finish, and has solidified the band’s sound as one people cannot ignore.
Justice For The Damned’s Emerge From The Fire Australian tour promises to be the heaviest tour fans have ever experienced, and one whose echo will last long after the last breakdown has ended.
