Karnivool have announced The Decade of Sound Awake tour for 2020 where, exclusively for Australia, they will play the whole album in its entirety.
Marking some of the band’s biggest headline shows to date, the tour takes in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Fremantle.
Karnivool’s Sound Awake captured a moment in time when circumstance, influence and individuals collided, restructured and, with a lot of time, pain and joy became elevated above the sum of the parts.
A decade and platinum sales have passed the landmark moment in the career of this band who have always gone their own way – meandered when they could have rushed, explored a sonic roadmap forward, then sideways, then backwards. And then forward again.
Sound Awake is an album heavily informed by the art and science of Cymatics and questioning of an ever-changing world.
From the structured rage of ‘Set Fire to the Hive’, the monster riffing of ‘Goliath’ and the single that was never a single ‘New Day’, Sound Awake is a record full of fan favourites that Kenny, Drew, Hoss, Steve and Jon see as their benchmark.
Attaining worldwide success over this last decade, it launched Karnivool to an intensely loyal, passionate audience that lifted them from an opening act with some interesting tuning to international festival headline act with, well, more interesting tuning in more interesting places… Youngstown, Istanbul, Glasgow, Helsinki, Pune, Bratislava, Auckland, Cape Town, Moscow, Wiesbaden and some place they were told was Chicago, but clearly wasn’t.
The Decade of Sound Awake tour will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Fremantle for one night only. No additional shows, no encore performances, no take backsies.
