The message is clear for all audiences elsewhere – get in quick to avoid disappointment!

The demonstrably large and looming festival line-up will take place in March 2022 – Saturday 12th of March at Bella Vista Farm in Sydney (NSW), Saturday 19th March at Eaton’s Hill Outdoors, Brisbane (QLD), Saturday 2 April at Reunion Park in Melbourne (VIC) and Saturday 9 April 2022 at Red Hill Auditorium in Perth (WA). All dates are outdoor venues!
Each festival date will erupt in an explosion of prog, rock and metal sounds – and for the very first time in SEVENTEEN EARS, Aussie Rock legends Karnivool and COG will tour together on the same line-up (SURELY a bucket list item for Aussie rock fans!) – and be joined by Ocean Grove, Plini, sleepmakeswaves, Reliqa and Yomi Ship!

This is a festival line-up that no Aussie metal, rock or prog fan can afford to miss.

Early bird tickets will go on sale at Wednesday November 24 at 9am local time at https://bit.ly/Monolith-SU, and General Tickets will go on sale Friday November 26 at 9am local time at DESTROYALLLINES.COM.

Heading up the line-up is Karnivool – with their acclaimed debut, Themata, the ground breaking follow-up, Sound Awake and the Aria winning #1 album Asymmetry, Karnivool have established themselves as one of the most vital global forces in progressive modern music. Karnivool recently celebrated the decade of album Sound Awake with a livestream, now available for pre-order on Blu-Ray at https://linktr.ee/Karnivool. Wall of Sound said that the performances was “…created with passion and precision… a performance I want to relive over and over again. Timeless, absolutely timeless.

Karnivool have gained high praise from international press titans such as Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine, Kerrang! and Rocksound. A rare sight to see them on a festival line-up, it’s even more special when it has them reuniting for the first time in 17 years with long time musical brothers, COG!

Since their return in 2016 after their critically acclaimed albums The New Normal and Sharing Space and subsequent 5 year hiatus, COG have been immersing themselves in their craft with renewed vigour, already having a plethora of new ideas and structures from which to draw new material. Since they released ‘The Middle’ in 2018 – the first new material released by COG in ten years and ‘Altered States’ and ‘Drawn Together’ followed, each song providing further proof that although Cog had lost NONE of their firepower.

Rounding out the seven band line-up is the enigmatic/eccentric Ocean Grove, the guitar mastery and groove-laden riffs of Plini, the post-rock power and majesty of sleepmakeswaves, the outright force of nature that is Reliqa, and the up-and-coming instrumentalists Yomi Ship opening up proceedings.

This week on Subculture we spoke to Tumbleweed’s Richie Lewis about the band’s 30th anniversary and playing at the inaugural Uncaged Festival.

You can take a listen to the full interview below and you can purchase tickets right here – https://uncagedfestival.com/

Brisbane based alternative musician Andrew Jay has released one of the most thought provoking songs of this year in the form of Broken Man.

Andrew recently sat down and spoke to Subculture’s Dave Griffiths about the tragic circumstances that inspired the song and what his plans are in future to bring out more music.

Melbourne alternative rock musician COLD*WORDS has just floored everybody with his new single titled ‘Kill Me, Please.’

Once a member of Left For Wolves COLD*WORDS has been busy recently writing tracks that tackle complex and deep issues such as alienation, depression and anxiety. Recently COLD*WORDS sat down for a chat with Subculture’s Dave Griffiths and he not only spoke about the deep meanings of his songs but also about his move away from metal to alternative rock.

Take a listen to the full interview here:

For thirty years Katatonia have dominated the prog rock scene and over that time they have built up a pretty decent collection of B-Sides and rare tracks that have pretty much disappeared for anybody that wasn’t lucky enough to be able to grab a copy of the original material at the time.

For that reason the band recently released Mnemosynean, a collection of these rare tracks all in one spot. Recently Niklas Sandin from the band sat down with Subculture’s Dave Griffiths to talk through the collection.
