Soundwave Festival is thrilled to announce the launch of Soundwave Pirate Radio.  An online radio station streaming 24/7 packed with exclusive interviews, daily news updates and fist pumping tracks from all your favourite Soundwave artists.

Exclusive to Soundwave Pirate radio will be ‘HAUGMETAL’ a weekly 2-hour metal show hosted by none other than Andrew Haug, every Thursday night from 8pm – 10pm. “Haugy” has been the voice of metal in this country for a over a decade in his former role as host of triple J’s The Racket.

As Haugy said to Tone Deaf in today’s interview with him and his band Contrive, his move from triple j was the station’s decision: “It was Triple J’s decision. Many people thought that I was retiring from the show. Why would I retire from something I absolutely love?”

His message for Soundwave fans is similarly enthusiastic: “Super psyched to be bringing you a weekly dose of smashing tunes from all things Soundwave. You’ll also hear from some of the godliest names in the biz taking part in this monstrous metallic gathering. If 2012 is the year the world ends? Then jump right in and let the metal flow with ‘HAUGMETAL!”

‘SOUNDWAVE PIRATE RADIO’ launches on Thursday January 26th January 8pm with ‘HAUGMETAL’. Tune in via www.soundwavefestival.com
