Saviour Rise From The Dead; Announce National Tour
We’re not all too sure if an 18-month hiatus really justifies the “farewell” and “reunion” branding, but nevertheless, Saviour are officially back in action! The melodic hardcore outfit first announced their return back in October, but have since kept relatively quiet – aside from a few small shows in their native Perth, the band have used social media to gauge interest in a comeback with sneaky teasers of a supposed third album popping up every once in a while.
Today, that changed. Blasting their frenzied impetuosity back onto the national mainstage, Saviour have announced the Aust. Undead Tour, a six-date journey from Brisbane through Adelaide that will see the quintet incite circle pits, walls of death, and potential nuclear chaos (their shows do get pretty crazy) Australia-wide this coming February. Of course, they’ll be topping it all off with an encore jaunt in Perth, too.
Joining them will be two of Australia’s most promising hardcore acts at the moment, Ocean Grove and Ambleside. Still coming down from the high of two major supporting runs – In Hearts Wake’s Badlands tour and Northlane’s Node tour – Ocean Grove have had an absolutely monumental 2015, with 2016 looking brighter by the minute for the Melbourne quintet. Ambleside are no strangers to success either, with opening slots for such heavy-hitters as Hellions, Trophy Eyes and Break Even dotting their resumes. That’s not to mention the four headline sprints they’ve managed to pull off in the past 14 months, either.
Though an official announcement is still being chiseled out at UNFD HQ, Saviour are set to release their third full-length LP sometime in 2016. With the band having spent the better half of this year writing and recording, it’s assumed we won’t be waiting too long for a new set of mosh anthems.
