Fans of Sherlock Holmes better get ready because Sony have just given us a look at the trailer for new brand new film Holmes & Watson. Starring Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Blades Of Glory) as Holmes, John C. Reilly (Guardians Of The Galaxy, Wreck-It-Ralph) as Watson and Ralph Fiennes (Schindler’s List, The Grand Budapest Hotel) as Moriarty.

The film will be released on Boxing Day in Australia.

Playing ‘The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’ in full, new material from Crooked Shadows’ and fan favourites from their storied career.

For the first time in Australia and New Zealand Dashboard Confessional will play their breakthrough album ‘The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’ in full. For these special performances, fans can revel in the sounds that first struck a chord and connected them to Chris Carrabbas signature soul-bearing lyrics and vulnerable, introspective musings.

Armed with nothing but a guitar and raw emotion, ‘The Places you Have Come to Fear the Most’ featured the award-winning hit single that became the anthem of a generation, ‘’Screaming Infidelities’’. Carrabba’s capacity to connect with the listener made the songs feel like a shared experience. It’s this ability that helped Dashboard Confessional build a worldwide fanbase and rise to cult-icon status.

Dashboard Confessional return with their first album in 9 years ‘Crooked Shadows’. The album is a reminder of the band’s skill when it comes to penning deeply and unabashedly cathartic songs, with a dynamic force, a surging energy, that resonates throughout. They’ve found a new perspective on the world in these songs, one that only comes with more life experience.

When Dashboard Confessional bring their songs to the stage, they’re punctuated by Carrabba’s vocal prowess and stage persona, delivered in a way where it is enviable to bare your soul in a song and be unashamed about it.

Playing in full The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’ + Fan Favourites, don’t miss this unique opportunity to join Dashboard Confessional as they deliver the best of their tug at the heart string anthems.

Cradle of Filth keyboardist and female vocalist LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT is embarking on her first ever solo tour, and has chosen the far-flung and haunted shores of Australia for a round of DJ sets in Sydney, Perth and a world-first solo headline show in Melbourne.

Brought to you by INCURSION ALTERNATIVE PARTIES and OVERDRIVE TOURING, Schoolcraft’s tour will hit Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, beginning with a very special New Year’s Eve performance! Next she hits Melbourne for a show at the renowned Evelyn Hotel, before finally making her way West to throw down with her Perth fans.

Best known for her beguiling keyboard and vocal performances with Cradle of Filth, taking on classics such as Nymphetamine and Her Ghost in the Fog live, as well as performing on latest studio albums ‘Hammer of the Witches’ and ‘Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness of Decay,’ Schoolcraft breaks away from the Filthy mould (and spores, mildew and fungus) to perform her own decadent works. With deft hands flying as gracefully over her electric harp as her keys, Lindsay Schoolcraft brings a sonic spectacle of Gothic rock, Nu Metal and subtle electronics not to be missed.

This is a rare opportunity for Australian fans to be among the first to witness such a momentous event! Schoolcraft’s new band, featuring former Evanescence drummer ROCKY GRAY, are ready to tour with their debut EP ‘Martyr’ to be released very soon.

After a rousing reception for Cradle of Filth in May, Schoolcraft and her band will be expecting a very warm welcome Down Under!

Mayday Parade are thrilled to announce Welcome To Sunnyland’ Australia and New Zealand headline shows alongside their already announced appearances at Good Things Festival!

13 years ago, a group of friends from Tallahassee, FL formed a band and travelled the U.S to sell their CD to anyone that would listen.Through their DIY mantra, Mayday Parade went on to sell 50,000 copies that summer without any label support.  In their evolution from hard-working local band to global force, Mayday Parade have sold out tours the world over, garnered a lifelong dedicated fanbase, sold over 1.1 million albums, while their debut, 2007’s A Lesson in Romantics has earnt cult classic status, spawning fan favourite tracks like ‘’Jamie All Over’’ and ‘’Miserable At Best’’.

 Mayday Parade’s mission is to continue strengthening the connection between their uncompromising honesty and boundless emotion with each release. The follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 album Black Lines, Sunnyland finds Mayday Parade both reflecting on the past and pushing toward the future. The result – an album built on impassioned vocals, sing-along choruses, and deeply heartfelt lyrics.

Each live show offers Mayday Parade the chance to personally connect with the dedicated following they consider more like a family than a fanbase. They’ve built a reputable repertoire of tracks, and they deliver those stories, blistering riffs and pummeling drumbeats with a stage presence that is so intensely full of life, the crowd has no choice but to feel it too as they scream along to their every word.

Mayday Parade’s innate, ever-evolving chemistry and undeniable intensity is at its strength – and they’re bringing the momentum back down under. Having sold out multiple shows on their last tour tickets are expected to fly out the door for Mayday Parade’s Welcome To Sunnyland Tour!

Dutch metallers WITHIN TEMPTATION have released the official video for “The Reckoning”, the first single from their forthcoming studio album, Resist. The track features a guest appearance by PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix.

‘’We’re super excited to finally share with you the music video of ‘’The Reckoning’’. We know the wait was long, but we are extremely psyched to share our new music with you and we truly hope you enjoy it as much as we do!’’ commented WITHIN TEMPTATION vocalist Sharon Den Adel

Resist is scheduled for release on 14 December 2018 via Vertigo/Caroline AustraliaResist marks a departure from the past; armed with ten anthemic tracks, driven by grand melodies and dark hooks, Resist brings a futuristic take on metal to the table – both instrumentally and thematically.

Lead singer Sharon den Adel continues: Resist is a true milestone for us. If it wasn’t for ResistWithin Temptation wouldn’t be here anymore. With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face – a very dark one. Sometimes it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge.

 

“Resist” will also feature IN FLAMES‘ Anders Fridén and ARID‘s Jasper Steverlinck on guest vocals.
