COUNTERPARTS & STRAY FROM THE PATH

Co-headline Australian Tour 2018

With special guests

It’s not every day that a tour package is able to pair up two of North America’s most crushing and sonically charged heavy outfits of the modern era, yet here we are, announcing an Australian co-headline run for Canada’s COUNTERPARTS and feisty New Yorkers, STRAY FROM THE PATH!

After 2015’s Tragedy Will Find Us smashed its way into the Billboard Top 200, COUNTERPARTS very quickly found themselves growing in stature. No longer one of a hundred hardworking but ‘not quite there’ acts, the Ontario-based group racked up an impressive 2 million Spotify streams for the record’s white hot trio of singles - “Burn,” “Solace” and “Stranger” – while immersing themselves in yet another whirlwind of a touring cycle.

Once again teaming up with mega producer Will Putney (The Amity Affliction, Thy Art Is Murder), COUNTERPARTS have truly outdone themselves with their second release under the Pure Noise banner, You’re Not You Anymore. As heavy as anything the band has done to date, COUNTERPARTS’s fifth album benefits from a new found sense of collaboration, experimentation and adventure, with lead cut “Bouquet” boasting one of the most anthemic chorus refrains of 2017.

New York’s fieriest, hip-hop-referencing metalheads, STRAY FROM THE PATH, are no strangers to Australian shores, having previously wowed audiences in both a supporting and headline capacity.

As unrelenting and in your face as ever, STRAY FROM THE PATH dropped their eighth studio effort in September of last year, the scathing Only Death Is Real.

Boldly dropping “The House Always Wins” on the same date as the 2016 US Presidential Election, the quartet backed it up with “Goodnight Alt-Right,” where their signature, razor-sharp sound was paired with one of the most violent, confronting and politically-relevant videos of the year. In fact, the clip’s raging imagery and biting lyrics managed to earn widespread from criticism from a number of alt-right groups throughout their native US, criticism that STRAY FROM THE PATH tackled head on.
