SOUNDWAVE FESTIVAL 2ND ANNOUNCEMENT DELAYED…..AGAIN
Australia’s Soundwave Festival promoter, AJ Maddah has broke the news this evening via his much followed twitter account, of another delay on the 2nd announcement of bands for 2015’s installment of Australia’s biggest and best festival. That’s the bad news.
Fortunately, fans will only need to be patient for another week. The good news is that the delay is allowing AJ to sign 3 more bands for the festival. There has been ongoing conjecture over the number of bands set to be revealed on the 2nd announcement. Originally quoted as saying around 14 bands were to be added, Maddah has been coy with revealing a specific number. Just how many bands are signed, we’ll have to wait and see.
The 2nd announcement for the 2014 Soundwave Festival, involved 38 bands upon release, headed by Mastodon and A Day To Remember.
In further good news, Maddah is divulging two bands over the next two nights. Tonight’s band is Nonpoint, the Florida metal/hard rock quintet who released their eighth studio album, “The Return”, on September 30 this year. Another band will be revealed tomorrow night and by hopping onto twitter and attempting to guess the band’s name with Maddah’s cryptic clues you may win yourself a tour backstage at Soundwave according to the promoter himself.
The 2015 Soundwave Festival will take part across two days for the first time and will be headlined by Slipknot, Faith No More and Soundgarden. The Festival will involve four states of Australia across two weekends. Other notable bands to feature include, Ministry, Marilyn Manson, Slash, Lamb of God, Antemasque, Fear Factory, Judas Priest, Mayhem, Godsmack and a heap more.
Look out for more updates and if you’re intending to book accommodation for the dates for specific states, do so now, as they will fill up quickly.
