Soundwave 2012, which has already sold out in Melbourne and is close to selling out across the rest of the country, is adding even more bands to their already jam-packed lineup featuring System Of A Down and Slipknot.

second announcement of acts was made a few weeks ago adding Bad Religion, Tonight Alive, Strung Out and more. Today Soundwave announced that the Melbourne date had already sold out, issuing a statement that read: “Thank you Victoria! The Melbourne leg of Soundwave 2012 has sold out…and in record time! The remaining states are not far behind with Brisbane and Sydney expected to sell out shortly as well!”

The new acts added to the lineup are:

Bush
In Flames
The Black Dahlia Murder
Holy Grail
Hyro Da Hero
These Kids Wear Crowns
In This Moment
Black Tide
Kids In Glass Houses
Fireworks
Conditions
Cherri Bomb

Even though the festival is yet to commence that hasn’t stopped controversy from circling the organisers. A while back Courtney Love cancelled her band Hole’s appearance at the festival after a war of words with promoter AJ Maddah over their billing under Limp Bizkit. However the hissy fit hasn’t appeared to have dapended demand for tickets as an extremely hungry audience have continued to buy tickets at a record rate.
