Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on - building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk - before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. For almost 30 years, featuring a multitude of talented personnel Suicidal Tendencies have remained true to their vision of uncompromising independence and singular musical ferocity.
SoCal punk stalwarts Unwritten Law have built a huge following worldwide since they formed in 1990. Six albums including their latest Swan have showcased the band's core aesthetic of memorable tunes, crushing pop punk riffs and an infectious energy that has maintained a breakneck momentum and thrilled fans for over two decades. No strangers to Australian fans Unwritten Law have cultivated a loyal following downunder delivering thrilling live shows that capture Unwritten Law's hallmarks of power, energy and infectious melody.
