Holy Crap! Soundwave 2010

Since its 2004 inception the Soundwave festival has grown from a single stage at Perth’s Gravity Games in to a (nearly) national touring festival committed to presenting the best Australian and International (mostly American) hard rock, metal, punk and hardcore bands available.

The Nine Inch Nails headlines in 2009 were the festivals best attended and most successful yet and if the 2010 line up is anything to go by 2010 might just go one better.

One of alternative rock’s legendary bands Faith No More will headline with more than adequate support from emo-opera stars My Chemical Romance the inform and hopefully fully fit Jane’s Addiction, goth punks A.F.I., and the Heart On inducing Eagles of Death Metal.

Further down the bill Isis, Mesuggah, Trivium and Clutch should please the metal heads, while the punk kids can look forward to pogoing to Taking Back Sunday, Alexisonfire, The Get Up Kids and Paramore.

Soundwave 2010 will be held in Brisbane on Febuary 20th, Sydney the 21st, Melbourne 26th, Adelaide 27th and Perth on the 1st March 2010.
