Modern metal trailblazers Machine Head book Soundwave sideshows with Chimaira, Shadows Fall and Times Of Grace.
Machine Head are stayers, reinventing the metal wheel with hardcore groove in 1994, and restoring relevancy by going back to their brutal roots on 2007’s The Blackening and this year’s pummeling Unto The Locust.
They’re joined by Ohio groove metallers Chimaira, forthright Massachusetts metal unit Shadows Fall and Killswitch Engage metalcore side project Times Of Grace.
Tickets go on sale from 9am next Friday 16 December from OzTix and Ticketek.
