Soundwave has dropped its 2016 line-up so far with the evasive Disturbed finally giving in to go on the bill.
Just a few months back David Draiman of Disturbed told Noise11.com the band would not be playing Soundwave and instead had elected to start its world tour in the USA. Australia will now get the jump on the USA with the Soundwave dates ahead of the American tour.
In recent weeks Soundwave was given a financial boost after a new investor bailed it out of a disastrous 2015. That mystery Australian Guardian Angel is also rumoured to be behind his own sale to American interests over coming months so financially the Soundwave deal may well be a stroke of genius boosting the value of Soundwave, the Angel’s business and then the financial transaction at the end of the day.
Not that the music fan gives a fuck.
The punter is getting:
Bring Me The Horizon
Bullet For My Valentine
Dead Letter Circus
Frnkiero And The Cellabrations
Nothing But Thieves
Devil You Know
and more to be announced
