While She Sleeps (UK) announce 2024 Australian tour with Stick To Your Guns (US), Ocean Sleeper + Boundaries (US)

British metalcore legends While She Sleeps have climbed their way to being one of metal’s biggest stars, and their legacy transpires across the ocean and into Australia, where they have just announced they’ll headline seven unmissable shows across the nation this September and October. While She Sleeps will be joined by very special guests Stick To Your Guns (US), Ocean Sleeper and Boundaries (US). Tickets on sale via Destroy All Lines Wednesday May 29 at 11am local time.

While She Sleeps left a lasting impression on their Australian audiences when they toured with Good Things Festival late last year. Surrounding the festival with their own Australian and New Zealand headliners, the band gave just enough to leave fans craving more, and this time they’ll return bigger and bolder than ever. “Australia, we’re not coming to f*** spiders!” says the band. “We are stoked to be returning to one of our favourite places in the world with our biggest ever AUS tour to date, playing some of our favourite venues. The Forum in Melbourne has been on our bucket list since we did it with In Hearts Wake in 2017, and we can’t wait to show Australia what we’ve been working on. Bringing with us a heavy line up of hard hitting bands from across the world, the bill has something for everyone and the shows are gonna be chaos.”

While She Sleeps took things to the next sonic with their latest album ‘SELF HELL‘, released via Spinefarm Records in March. Even in a career of bold, empowering moves, ‘SELF HELL’ is special. Their sixth album, produced by guitarist Sean Long and long-time collaborator Carl Bown, casts their net even wider, considering symphonic music, hardcore, synth-rock and metal alike. Yet, through all those styles, it never loses sight of the band’s ability to make confident, stadium-prepared anthems. From festival-stealing sets and selling out 10,000 capacity shows in London, While She Sleeps have eschewed the trappings of the conventional music industry and are excited to make their way to Australia with nearly 20 years of experience in their back pocket.

Joining While She Sleeps across Australia is Connecticut hardcore veterans Stick To Your Guns. Since 2003, the quintet have built a diehard following over the course of seven full-length albums. Along the way, the band has had a relentless touring schedule playing memorable sold out gigs in 6 continents and over 40 countries, including being the first American hardcore band to play Kenya, Africa. After 20 years, Stick To Your Guns continues to be one of the most established, hard working and well respected modern hardcore bands.

Flying the flag for Australian heavy music is Ocean Sleeper, the regional Victorian powerhouse is set to storm the stage with an electrifying blend of alternative rock and metalcore. After a mammoth 2023 which included performances at Good Things Festival and tours with Make Them Suffer, Fit For An Autopsy and Sunk Loto, the band has carried the momentum into 2024 with their new release, Lonely Love featuring Lil Lotus and an entirely sold out Australian headline tour.

Opening the festivities across all seven shows is fellow Connecticut metalcore group Boundaries, who will be making their way to Australia for the very first time. The band bring with them their recently released third full length offering, Death Is Little More, released via 3DOT Recordings. The album unleashes a flood of unrestrained emotion, tuning into the discord and strife of a seemingly doomed generation. Renowned as a powerhouse presence live, they’ve shared stages with everyone from Counterparts and Lorna Shore to Currents.

With something for everyone, this mammoth tour will be one to remember. Don’t miss out when it hits your city! Tickets on sale Wednesday May 29 via Destroy All Lines.
