Ever since Descendents let slip that they will be in Australia this December, there has been a huge amount of talk about what exactly they are coming for. Finally, after weeks of speculation FasterLouder can reveal that the legendary So-Cal punks are headed down under this December to headline the inaugural No Sleep Til Festival.

No Sleep Til is a brand new national festival that is set to bring you some of the most exciting bands from both the punk and metal worlds. Heading up a huge line-up is seminal thrash-metal overlords Megadeth, who will be playing their classic album Rust In Peace in its entirety to celebrate the record’s 20th anniversary.

As previously mentioned Milo Aukerman and Bill Stevenson will be bringing their band to our shores for the first time in thirty years and joing them will be fellow Califonians NOFX and Me First and The Gimme Gimmes.

If that isn’t enough to get you blood pumping then the addition of shock-rockers GWAR to the bill surely will surely help matters. The self-professed “sickest band in metal history… destined destroyers of not only the human race but also reality itself” are set to release their twelfth studio album Bloody Pit of Horror this November, and are guaranteed to give one of the most disturbing performances Australia has ever seen.
