Alienist Announce The Love//Hate Australian Tour With Special Guests ATLVS & Synge


Wollongong metalcore band Alienist and UNFD presents The Love//Hate Tour; Alienist‘s first tour since signing with international record label UNFD and releasing their debut EP Love/Hate.

Kicking off on July 19 in Melbourne, The Love//Hate Tour will head to Canberra, Newcastle, Wamberal, Ulladulla, Wollongong, Sydney and Brisbane, before closing out on August 18 on the Gold Coast, joined by special guests ATLVS and Synge.
“We can’t wait to show Australia the new Alienist, we want to make this a night you won’t forget!”
– Damon Renes, Alienist
Alienist have swiftly stormed the heavy scene in a remarkably short space of time, chalking up triple j airplay, being featured in major publications such as Kerrang, Knotfest and Revolver, and playing alongside bands such as Northlane, Windwaker, Gravemind and Paledusk and an appearance at UNIFY Off The Record.

Flexing an explosive amalgamation of rage and serenity on their recent EP Love/Hate, released on March 1 via UNFD, is an exciting debut collection of songs from the Wollongong five-piece. Whether battling with religious ideals alongside commanding execution (Godless), facing the crumbling world around with a flurry of distortion (Distorted Reflections), detailing a breakdown of love set to turgid guitars and torrential beats (Absent), seeking hope and purpose in creativity (Hypnotise), or serving up a biting commentary on a toxic relationship (Prisoner Of You), Love/Hate is simultaneously confronting and cathartic, with Alienist firmly at the helm of a journey that feels instantly personal yet universal.

Showcasing the newest music from their discography alongside some older favourites in a live set built from the ground up, prepare to witness Alienist in a whole new light this July and August.

Joining Alienist, Melbourne heavy hitters ATLVS will be primed to bring an aggressive and heavy live set. With several Australian tours already under their belt, the band have also played alongside bands such as ERRA, We Came As Romans and Kingdom Of Giants and most recently released their mini EP Shadow Dancer in late 2023.

To round out the trio of bands for The Love//Hate Tour is the 2023 Good Things Band Competition winners from Sydney: Synge. Previously performing alongside the likes of Ocean Sleeper, Windwaker and Volumes, Synge will arrive armed with their most recent single Laniakea and plenty of their trademark insatiable energy.

This tour will be full of breakdowns, singalongs and mayhem. You don’t want to miss it.
