In what seems like an eternal rollercoaster of close calls and postponements, Silverback Touring are pleased to announce that after several attempts, the long-awaited DEVILSKIN “RED” Australian Tour is finally happening. The hard-hitting Kiwi band released their critically acclaimed third studio album RED in April 2020 and have been trying to make it to Australia to celebrate. Now, with borders finally opening and plenty of light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, Australia finally get their chance to witness DEVILSKIN on their first ever headline run down under in April/May.
On the tour, DEVILSKIN’s Nic Martin says, “We are so grateful for our overseas supporters, who have proven their patience and loyalty as we have tried to bring this show to their shores. Now that it appears safe to do so, we are frothing to be connecting with our friends in Australia again. We’re incredibly excited to finally showcase our latest album, especially in a few cities we’ve never previously performed. It’s going to be a massive reunion, so we hope you’re ready for a Kiwi-style party, Aussie!”
Having stunned Australian crowds on tours with HALESTORM and SLASH Ft. Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and appearing on Download Australia in 2019, DEVILSKIN are one act not to be missed.
Joining DEVILSKIN are fellow Kiwi’s SHEPHERDS REIGN on their first ever Australian visit. SHEPHERDS REIGN are a Polynesian Metal band and seem to be a world first. The band is made up of 5 brothers: Pacific, Māori and Asian, who are united in their passion for writing and performing hard hitting music that expresses where they are from and shares their life experiences. It’s metal with thick textures and big melodies, delivered with attitude and conviction. Their recent release ‘Le Manu’ has received close to two million views on YouTube.
