Fresh from a 28-date European tour with The Amity Affliction, Sydney’s Endless Heights will bring their expansive, melodic sound and earth-shattering energy to this run of shows. The five-piece released their stellar second album Vicious Pleasure to critical praise in February, led by the tender and emotive single Come A Little Closer and have performed alongside Luca BrasiTurnover and Basement.

Dynamic trio RedHook round out the bill with their unique blend of rap-rock-electro-pop, drawing upon a diverse array of influences from Grimes to Rage Against The Machine. The group headlined the first-ever heavy music showcase at Australian Music Week 2018 and opened the inaugural Good Things Festival in Sydney this past weekend, all following the release of their most recent anthemic single Turn Up The Stereotype‘.

Coming in hot off the back of an extensive run of 41 shows over the past two months, Hands Like Houses have performed to more than 15,000 people across the UK and Europe plus 8,000 people in the USA during their first international dates in support of -Anon. After three back-to-back sold out Australian tours, the band return home for their biggest headline shows yet in 2019 before returning to the US festival circuit to perform at Sonic TempleWelcome to Rockville and Epicenter – one of only two Australian bands sharing the bill with revered artists including Foo Fighters, Korn, The Prodigy and more.

Closing out a year of widespread success, Hands Like Houses’ mammoth track ‘Monster’ has exceeded2.2 million Spotify streams and 450,000 YouTube plays, being picked up as the WWE Super Show-Down official theme song and broadcast to over 70,000 wrestling fans at the MCG in October. The track was run in a major sync on FOX8 for the network’s DC universe, and has been spotlighted in Amazon Music’s ‘Best of Rock 2018’ list. With a multitude of national radio airplay behind the track, the band also went on to take out the highly-coveted triple j Feature Album for -Anon which was praised across the board, including Kerrang! calling the album “a bold step into the unknown… their play for the big leagues.”

Hailing from Canberra, five-piece Hands Like Houses – Trenton Woodley (vocals), Alexander Pearson (guitar), Joel Tyrrell (bass), Matt Cooper (guitar), Matthew Parkitny (drums) – have spent the past decade thrilling audiences with their dynamic performances, sharing arena stages with heavyweights such asBring Me The Horizon and A Day To Remember at home, to performing internationally alongside legendary acts including Red Hot Chili PeppersAlice Cooper and Disturbed on Download Festivaland Rock on the Range to name a few. With four albums under their belt, including two critically acclaimed Top 10 ARIA records, –Anon. which debuted at #4 and 2016’s Dissonants at #7, the band have sold over 100,000 records worldwide and amassed over 100 million Spotify streams.
