I wonder what's the total cost of flying those bands to Aussie ? must be wow !

isn't it much cheaper for you to fly to US, andrew ? except maybe if the burden of the plane tickets are on the bands' hand ?

Ha, I knew it'd be Melbourne. :(

 

I was actually thinking about it today (assuming it'd be in Victoria) and wondered if I might take the family on a road trip for a few nights, or if it'd be too weird to do that and leave them all for one (or two?) days to go to a concert. I dunno. Will have to see the line-up and make some decisions on this one.

How far is Melbourne from Sydney (is that where u are)?

 

For Firefest we travel about 200 miles. Stay overnight obviously.

Haha, bit longer than that. It's somewhere around 8-10 hours, probably around 1000km, I'd guess. Definitely not an overnight trip, lol, but maybe if we go down for a week or so. Problem is, I HATE Melbourne. Love a lot of Victoria as a state, but hate that city like nobody's business.

 

So hopefully the show (festival?) would be out of town a bit and we could stay somewhere cool, on the coast or something.

 

EDIT - just did a Google Map and it's 9 hours and 50 minutes; 952km.

A few discussions going on. It will be a small start to see what kindof interest there is here in Oz for a fest. Would love to do one annually....will see.

 

HEAT and Harem Scarem both want to come here one day as do many others, but there's no way you can do a multi-international band event here for this scene. More like 1 or 2 max (as it's $1500-2200 per person to get anyone from overseas here) and the rest be the best/new local bands.

 

Stay tuned...

 

And yes, Melbourne city....gotta be central and easy.

:lol: Yeah, it's a big ask and it'd have to be a killer line-up for me to consider it... but I am definitely interested to see what's on offer. 320km (200 miles) is no thang to me at all as both my brothers live about that far away up the North coast, and I like to visit them as often as I can.

 

Not quite as frequent at the moment due to small children, but a 4hr trip to spend the weekend with the bros is always a no-brainer. :) As it would also be a no-brainer to see this show... but yeah, double that (and a half) is a bit larger task. ;)

yeah for sure. If FF (or Rockingham as it is now) was 1,000 km away I would have maybe been once or twice in the last 10 years - that's how often the line up would have warranted that type of effort.

My headliner just pulled out due to conflicting schedule. Bugger.

 

But maybe the replacement will be bigger? Mmmmmm....

 

Damn. That sucks.

HEAT were going into rest/write mode, so couldn't...harem Scarem want to, but same as Heat (new album next year) and then Eclipse had to say no, due to a tour being scheduled in Europe.

 

Then someone else dropped into my lap, so looking at that. Bigger name and more planning needed though.

Maybe a "Coup"?

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
