Soundwave Revolution keeps getting closer, with news in that after Perth looked to be likely to miss the tour, a venue has now been secured. While that date was locked in and logistics sorted out, the festival’s final line up announcement was postponed. Rumours had been swirling that Rage Against The Machine, Alice Cooper, Kiss and even Ozzy Osbourne might be announced as headliners. However, these were kyboshed when all but the chance of Kiss appearing were ruled out by other touring plans.
Organiser AJ Maddah then upped the ante by telling fans on Twitter the cryptic news “Well, the darnest [sic]thing just happened… Just had a call from a certain theatrical rock legend’s people asking about #swRevolution. Could life be imitating rumour?” While this announcement certainly added fuel to the fire leaving fans wondering if at least one of the aforementioned headline rumours might indeed be true come the final announcement. While that still appears to be a few days away, the following 49 bands HAVE been confirmed, as well as the Perth date.
Line up so far:
All Time Low | Attack! Attack! | Black Veil Brides | Cro-Mags | Dashboard Confessional | Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows | Devin Townsend | Every Time I Die | Face to Face | Four Year Strong | Framing Hanley | Funeral For a Friend | Gojira | Hellogoodbye | Hellyeah | Hollywood Undead | Holy Grail | In This Moment | Kvelertak | Madina Lake | Make Do And Mend | Panic! at the Disco | Relient K | Set Your Goals | Skindred | Steel Panther | Story Of The Year | Street Dogs | Sum 41 | Terrible Things | The Acacia Strain | The Damned Things | The Dangerous Summer | The Swellers | The Used | The Word Alive | This Providence | Thrice | Thursday | Times of Grace | Unearth | Watain | We Are The In Crowd | We Are The Ocean | Whitechapel | Yellowcard | Young Guns | Zebrahead
