Rejoice! Mastodon 2012 Sidewaves revealed

Enduring FasterLouder heroes Mastodon were already one of the most unmissable acts on the Soundwave 2012 line-up – and now Melbourne and Sydney have Sidewaves to gloat about as well.

By the time Mastodon arrive in Australia, it’ll be over a year since their last circuit of the country – too long in any fan’s opinion. On that tour they “rightfully earned their place at the top of the metal mountain” in the words of our Sydney reviewer, and you can expect them to be in formidable form again. Adding an extra dash of awesome is the news that Gojira and Kvelertak are also on the bill.

Mastodon, Kvelertak and Gojira Sidewaves:

Monday 27th February – Billboard, Melbourne [18+]

Thursday 1st March – The Hi-Fi, Sydney [LIC/ALL AGES]
