DEAD LETTER CIRCUS is the second act to officially confirm their appearance at Soundwave 2016 alongside Welsh metal titans BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.

DEAD LETTER CIRCUS have consistently earned their place as one of Australia's most loved modern rock acts, with a handful of classic releases and literally thousands of global touring miles to their name. A staple of both the stage and the airwaves, the Brisbane four-piece have made their artistic mark for over a decade, and this year they emerge from the darkness of the studio with their third and most electric full-length album to date, ‘Aesthesis’.

Just when you thought this tour couldn't get any crazier Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake have invited Aussie ska/punk/party royalty THE BENNIES along for the ride!

Following the release of their breakout debut album ‘Rainbows In Space’, THE BENNIES have toured China, Japan and the USA, and completed multiple laps of Australia in the company of NOFX, Dead Kennedys, The Smith Street Band and Kingswood. Not to mention a set at Soundwave 2014 which boasted such an epic crowd response that the band were promptly invited back for the entire Festival in 2015.

When it comes to faultless reputations, the band everyone thinks of is THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. With a slew of brilliant albums behind them, the titans of envelope-pushing, ground-breaking heavy music have become one of the most formidable acts on the planet.

Their newest album, ‘One of Us is the Killer’, is the band’s defining work with critics salivating and declaring them “leaders in a genre of precisely one” (Metal Hammer, 9/10); “enduringly peerless” (Rock Sound); “firing on cylinders, just as urgent as ever” (Alternative Press); “operating at the peak of their powers” (Kerrang!).

DEVIN TOWNSEND is one of the most prodigious and prolific contemporary talents in the metal world, along with being one of the most admired and celebrated.

For almost 20 years, DEVIN TOWNSEND has amazed, beguiled and occasionally baffled all comers in numerous incarnations spanning the extreme noise metal of Strapping Young Lad to the intricate melodies of Ocean Machine; Devin has had his hand in almost every genre of music, from industrial metal to progressive rock to ambient sounds. All of these projects had one thing in common: GENIUS.

Whether listening to a CIRCA SURVIVE album or attending a live show, one thing remains constant; the experience is both exhausting and exhilarating.

CIRCA SURVIVE are a model of sonic and psychic consistency, ever since they brought us the explosive debut album Juturna in 2005. It should come as no surprise, then, that their fifth album, Descensus, falls in line as an incredibly strong and innovative album and is “just one more piece of evidence proving CIRCA SURVIVE are far and away one of the best bands operating today, and why ‘Descensus’ is yet another gold star in a career already full of them.” – Alternative Press
