Australia the heaviest tour of the year is arriving with the return of Australiavania presented by American hardcore metalcore act, The Acacia Strain. Joining them on this special occasion will be Portland Oregon, metalcore outfit Dying Wish for their debut trip to our shores and will be in good company with local risers in Volatile Ways.

East Coast metalcore ensemble the Acacia Strain utilize a bone-crushing rhythm section, apocalyptic samples, and a unique triple-guitar assault to deliver their signature blend of hardcore, noise, and death and doom metal. Emerging in the early 2000s, the band found success in 2008 with their fourth full-length effort, Continent, which soared to the top of Billboard’s U.S. Heatseekers chart. Subsequent efforts like Death Is the Only Mortal (2012), Coma Witch (2014), and the horror-themed semi-concept LP It Comes in Waves (2019) continued to snap necks in the metal community with brutal efficacy.

The Acacia Strain signed to Rise Records in 2012, releasing Death Is the Only Mortal by year’s end. Longtime member Laskiewitz left the band in 2013, and was replaced by Devin Shidaker and Rich Gomez, both of whom contributed guitar to the Acacia Strain’s seventh full-length album, 2014’s Coma Witch. In early 2017, the group issued “Bitter Pill,” the first single from their eighth studio long-player, Gravebloom, which arrived later that June. In late 2019, the band released It Comes in Waves, a doomy, taut, and atmospheric seven-song set with single-word song titles that, when put together, construct the sentence “Our only sin was giving them names.” The following year saw the Acacia Strain issue a series of pummeling 7″ releases (A, C, E, D, Y) that went on to form (and spell) the full-length Slow Decay, which arrived that summer.

Dying Wish is the unrelenting and unforgiving sound of struggle, an extreme metallic hardcore band infused with a punk spirit. With little more than a demo and a split 7” to their name, the Portland, Oregon outfit earned a Best International Band nomination at the UK’s Heavy Music Awards. The blistering hardcore band’s passionate music fuses the New Wave of American Heavy Metal with chaotic punk dissonance. The diverse group forged a musical and activist identity in the DIY scene. Even as they’ve graduated to bigger tours with more prominent metalcore bands, they continue to uphold those ethics, espousing the values of equality, justice, and self-determination. They make music aimed at unity but without compromise. Revolution and liberation, in spirit and song, is the heart of DYING WISH.
