Banks Arcade Announce Death 2 A Muse 2024 New Zealand & Australia Headline Tour

After two years of non-stop touring and the release of their latest EP DEATH 2, Melbourne heavy metal boy band Banks Arcade are poised to hit the road in New Zealand and Australia with a brand new live show this May, with the Death 2 A Muse Tour set to compile the band’s best work to date, and teasing some of the further releases expected in 2024.

Splitting their 2024 headline run on both sides of the ditch and also armed with their brand new EP, the New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based group will commence their Death 2 A Muse tour in Auckland on Friday 17 May, before heading to Wellington, Christchurch, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and closing out in Brisbane on Sunday 26 May.

“Death 2 is an exploration of death and disorder and the live show we have built will for the first time accurately incite the chaos the music was written to create. It’s the first installation of a much larger project and the Death 2 A Muse Tour will be the first proper window into the world we are creating”
– Banks Arcade
Recently flexing their nuanced creative muscles via DEATH 2, Banks Arcade‘s latest EP doesn’t simply build on the band’s previously-established trademark sound; rather, it catapults Banks Arcade‘s heady blend of hard rock, electronic and metal into an entirely new sonic stratosphere, while also expressing the darkest and heaviest side of the quartet to date.

A band who always wanted to make history, Banks Arcade bring passion and potent execution to their myriad of influences and creative ideas. Formed over a shared love of music with a razor-sharp avant-garde aesthetic, Banks Arcade have always teetered on modernity; a fact displayed firmly on their 2018 debut EP Endnote, its 2020 follow up Fever Dreams, and the group’s head-turning singles like Sick and Drown, which have gone on to amass well over 1 million individual streams.

Releasing their full-length Future Lovers in 2022, an LP initially devised as a concept album that evolved into a vessel of personal self-discovery, Banks Arcade cemented their future-facing trademark style while also turning heads courtesy of their emphatic soundscapes, searing metal and hip hop additions.

Appearing at UNIFY Off The Record in 2023, Banks Arcade also kicked off 2023 with their national Australian Future Lovers Tour, supported Highly Suspect in New Zealand, and toured North America with The Plot In You. And fresh off the back of releasing DEATH 2 earlier this month, Banks Arcade also supported metalcore titans Northlane nationally alongside ERRA and Landmvrks.

For Banks Arcade, death is only the beginning; do not miss a moment of the Death 2 A Muse Tour this May.
