The Artery Foundation is proud to announce the Movember Mayhem Tour 2012 featuring Dream On Dreamer, Make Them Suffer, In Fear and Faith and Saviour.
This tour marks the end of an amazing 18 month touring cycle for Dream On Dreamer since the release of their "Heartbound" debut album that came out via UNFD and Rise Records in August 2011. The band has toured around the world multiple times hitting countries throughout Asia, North America and Europe alongside acts like Attack Attack, The Ghost Inside, The Devil Wears Prada, Avenged Sevenfold, Memphis May Fire, and Underoath, as well as a slot on the Soundwave Festival touring circuit where they played to crowds of over 3000 fans at each show.
"Heartbound" was nominated for ARIA and AIR Awards, and propelled the band to the forefront of the Australian hardcore movement, well on track to replicate the success of Aussie mainstays Parkway Drive and The Amity Affliction. With close to 80,000 Facebook fans and music videos for "Downfall" (500k plays) and "Ambitions" (1 Million Plays) on YouTube, the band has become a viral success in a short space of time. Following this run, Dream On Dreamer will head back to the studio to record the follow up to "Heartbound".
To co-incide with the tour, UNFD will release a deluxe version of "Heartbound". The main feature of the repackage is a one hour feature documentary about the band's incredible touring run. Other features include both their music videos, Additional tracks "Midnight Thoughts" and "A Thousand Miles" and extended artwork with liner notes and lyrical explanations included.
Joining Dream on Dreamer is Perth metal giant Make Them Suffer. It wasn’t too long ago that Perth’s Make Them Suffer released their debut album Neverbloom on Roadrunner Records to rave reviews. Now they are set to take it on the road for an armful of shows to showcase tracks from the album and their previously released EP Lord of Woe. We said Neverbloom is ‘bold and ambitious’ and it is ‘dense in sound and solid in structure’ while SputnikMusic.com said Neverbloom is an ‘intriguing listen,’ and it is filled to the brim with ‘amazing, haunting, heavy and memorable moments from beginning to end.’
Also part of the Movember Mayhem tour and for the first time in Australia is San Diego post- hardcore band In Fear And Faith. Despite the plethora of music hailing from southern California, In Fear And Faith have proven themselves worthy of attention. After putting out 2 full lengths and selling over 46,000 records total the band returns with their self-titled album, which is appropriately named as it is a representative of everything the band has become over the past 5 years. The brutal heavy parts and soaring choruses will serve the band well in the area where they are most well known – their live shows. Just finished up a litany of tours this past year, these San Diego natives are ready to prove once more their reputation as a force to be reckoned with will remain constant and true.
Last but not least to round up this bill is Saviour from Perth, WA who are making their own mark on the melodic/hardcore scene, after doing their own thing independently worked hard enough to gain the attention of labels and at the start of this year released their album ‘Once We Were Lions’ through Skull and Bones Records which perfectly blends harmony and dissonance into 13 unforgettable tracks.
