The Kerrang! Tour is back for 2017 and it’s bringing four brilliant bands along for the ride. From Aussie metalcore to UK emo, here’s your guide to this year’s line-up.
The Amity Affliction
Headlining The Kerrang! Tour are the titans of the Australian heavy music scene, The Amity Affliction. Achieving worldwide success over their five-album career, this tour will mark another monumental achievement for the band. Their latest album This Could Be Heartbreak, which is their darkest and most emotional record to date, saw them shoot to the number one spot in their home country and sell out tours all over the world, and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the UK this time around.
If there’s one band who have had a whirlwind couple of years, it’s Boston Manor. From signing to US label Pure Noise Records, releasing their debut album Be Nothing and cutting their teeth on the touring circuit on both sides of the Atlantic, this is a band who deserve to be huge. If you’re a fan of pop-punk with punch, do not miss out on Boston Manor.
Scottish pop-rock outfit Vukovi are quickly becoming one of the most exciting live bands in the UK and one watch of frontwoman Janine Shilstone is all you need to understand why. Fusing bubbly, synth-based melodies with heavy riffs and Janine’s insane vocal range, Vukovi will have you hook, line and sinker as soon as they step on stage.
Releasing their debut album Love Is Not Enough towards the end of last year, Welsh post-hardcore outfit Casey have mastered the art of creating emotionally delicate songs that cut right to the bone. Having stunned fans with their live performances over the past year, it would be a huge mistake for you to miss out on their set.
Excited? Make sure you get your tickets before they sell out!
