Coal Chamber will reform to play at Soundwave 2012.
The first line-up announcement for Soundwave 2012 is expected this Friday. Dez Fafara from Coal Chamber has already let it be known the band is on the way back.
“Coal Chamber is playing Soundwave Down Under,” Dez says. “These reunion shows are for the fans that want to see us again as well as all the people that never got to see Coal Chamber. It is and always will be a very special part of my life, so these few shows are for those people and for us. If you’re not from Australia, better get a ticket now to come see this event!”
Guitarist Miguel ‘Meegs’ Rascon said, “Australia has never seen us, nor have we seen them. It will be an extraordinary exchange of energy and adrenaline. Hello Aussies, nice to meet you!”
He continued, “This reunion will mark a decade since we last played together, so staring at my brothers on stage face to face will be an emotional rollercoaster for me. Tears of joy would be an understatement, to say the least. You know, all of us have gone through our separate journeys in life, but we’re coming back to rekindle this and throw the past in the past and put the future in our hands.”
