Nothing But Thieves Announce Soundwave 2016 Sidewaves
*In tune of Christmas carol* It’s beginning to look a lot like Soundwaaaaaaaave!
So a Soundwave Festival announcement hit the airwaves today. No, it wasn’t that illusive second line-up drop – we know, we know; the pain is mutual. While we continue to wait patiently (oh so patiently…) for that to grace our computer screens, another band has announced a string of sidewaves to accompany their appearance at the festival.
In addition to their first ever Australian sets at Soundwave 2016, Essex alt-rockers Nothing But Thieves will hit Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney for a handful of dedicated headline shows, where fans will be treated to swervy, accented bangers from their self-titled debut album. Released this past October, the album dropped in at #27 on the ARIA charts – pretty impressive, if you ask us!
The announcement follows last week’s news that punk powerhouse NOFX would be ducking into a couple of regional towns along their SW16 run. What makes this all the more interesting is that, while we know Melbourne and Brisbane were always poised to get a small batch of sidewaves, festival head AJ Maddah had previously sworn that Sydney wouldn’t receive any at all.
We wonder what other surprises lie ahead?
