Soundwave 2013 second announcement and Sidewave details

CHECK OUT THE FULL SECOND LINEUP HERE

Updated – 16 August

The second lineup announcement has been brought forward to tomorrow – 17th August.

Maddah says that the announcement “be in the afternoon at a quite leisurely time I imagine.”

The Soundwave 2013 lineup has been announced with Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink-182, A Perfect Circle, The Offspring, Paramore, Garbage headlining a massive list of bands making their way to Australia for the festival.

Second lineup announcement

The second announcement will come between the pre-sale and general release of tickets – so sometime between the 17th and 23rd of August. The announcement is tentatively scheduled for Monday 20th August.

The festival’s boss AJ Maddah says that the final lineup “will cost approx $36M net of GST” and has declared that “There is no precedent for this kind of line-up!” and that “I would be amazed if Bris/Syd/Melb do not sell out instantly… Honestly [I think Sydney will sell out in] under an hour.” The impressive lineup is a one off for Soundwave’s ten year anniversary and Maddah says that “Next year will return to normal.”

The festival still has “many more” bands to added to the lineup with Maddah boasting “We’re not even done yet… 2nd announcement is a damn good festival by itself imho!” and revealing that the additions will include “some great metal… 2 more big metal bands. Couple of smaller ones too.” The second announcement will feature approximately 22 acts.

Maddah has revealed that with the festival expected to sell quickly that the second lineup could be released earlier than expected having 2nd thought and thinking of releasing it earlier… Like much earlier!”

Billy Talent has been confirmed for the second lineup announcement. Gallows seem to have inadvertently leaked their place on the second announcement replying to a fan who asked why the band wasn’t on the first lineup with the question: “There’s more than one Soundwave announcement isn’t there?”. When a fan forwarded the comment from the British punks onto Maddah he all but confirmed the leak by replying “d’oh!”. Welshmen The Blackout are also close to certainties for the second announcement as they’ve been ‘confirmed’ several times on Twitter by Maddah.

Sydney metal crew Northlane will play on “a couple of the dates”.

It also appears that Maynard James Keenan will be bringing two bands to Soundwave – A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. A tweet from Puscifer, which also has includes the Twitter accounts of Puscifer band members Carina Round, Mat Mitchell, Matt McJunkins, has announced “Soundwave Confirmed. More news to follow”. Puscifer have since announced that “The is confirming APC NOT Puscifer for Soundwave” but then why were Carina Round and Mat Mitchell included in the post? While there’s a faint hope of seeing Puscifer, Maddah has again ruled out any hopes of seeing Maynard James Keenan’s ‘other’ band Tool on the lineup. Maddah’s comments on Puscifer aren’t exactly clear.

The Chariot and Blood on the Dancefloor had confirmed themselves for the festival but were noticeably absent from the first round announcement.

Other bands that could feature on the second lineup include The Vandals (“Will try and get for 2nd announce!”), Northlane, Killswitch Engage, and Deftones. Maddah was hoping Falling in Reverse could play – “if they get their paperwork together” – but the band’s leader Ronnie Radke has been arrested again and is extremely unlikely to be allowed to tour.

And just in case that isn’t enough speculation for you Maddah has also indicated that he’ll try to book Dirty Rotten Imbeciles for Soundwave 2014.

Bands ruled out for the second announcement

Maddah had already ruled out a long list of bands for the festival prior to the first announcement. Since the first announcement he has added several acts to that list including:
Lifetime
No Doubt
The Descendants
Whitechapel
Kreator
Sister
Three Days Grace
Avenged Sevenfold
Tenacious D
Protest the Hero
Karnivool
Motorhead
New Empire
Mod Sun

Arkona
Soilwork

Seether
Fantomas
Underoath
Man Overboard

Bowling For Soup
All American Rejects
Jimmy Eat World

Deathklok
Cog
Bleeding Through

Although the presence of Metallica and Anthrax on the lineup has led to speculation that Slayer and Megadeth could join the lineup to complete the Big Four Maddah has declared that “this is not a big 4 gig.”

Tonight Alive have played their “1st and last SW because [according to Maddah] their “manager” ran all over the festival trying become the new promoter for a bunch of my acts. Equivalent of inviting someone to dinner and he shits on the carpet, steals the cutlery and rapes your turtle.”

Stages and timetabling

According to Maddah ‘IF A POTENTIAL CLASH SOUNDS TOTALLY RETARDED (Ie Metallica & Anthrax) THEN YOU CAN BE SURE IT WON’T HAPPPEN’

Maddah has confirmed that Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink-182, A Perfect Circle and Tomahawk will all play on the festival’s mainstages.

There’s no danger of a set clash between All Time Low, Blink-182 and Paramore.

Metallica will play for over two hours. A Perfect Circle have been given a 70 minute slot.. All Time Low will play for 45-60 minutes.. The Offspring will get 70 minutes.

All Time Low and Paramore will clash with Metallica.

Linkin Park won’t clash with Paramore or All Time Low.

Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil won’t clash with All Time Low, Paramore or The Wonder Years.

Sidewaves

Maddah says that the festival “usually starts planning sidewaves early October” so it’s a little early to start thinking about Sidewave shows Maddah has already (unsurprisingly) ruled out the possibility of any sideshows in Perth or Adelaide. He has also announced that there’ll be “some legendary sideshows” and confirmed that Blink-182 will be playing at least one Sidewave show, most likely in Sydney. However there won’t be any sideshows for Metallica, A Perfect Circle or Paramore. Fans of Laurence Arms and Lucero can look forward to a Sidewave with two bands from the second announcement on the bill.

Blink-182 and Linkin Park won’t be playing a joint sideshow.

Stone Sour will most likely play a Sidewave in Melbourne.

“Motion City Soundtrack will “definitely play Sidewaves.

Other Soundwave tour announcements

In addition to the second Soundwave announcement, Soundwave Touring also has tour announcements from two of AJ’s “all time fave artists to announce” soon. The two tours will be announced in the week beginning Monday 13th August

Rival promoter Ken West, from Big Day Out, recently told FL that “I think [Refused] are coming in three months; it’s still in the bidding process. Probably AJ [Maddah, Soundwave promoter] will get that, he ends up getting all that stuff.” When asked if one of the upcoming tours from “all time fave artists” could be from Refused Maddah replied with a promising smiley face and has also told a fans that Refused will play in Adelaide and Perth on the tour. The visit from the reformed Swedish punks will come before the end of the year..

Mayday Parade will also be here for a tour prior to Soundwave festival as will Zebrahead

Maddah also says that At The Drive In will return for a full tour.

    Yuck

  • shazie on the 15th Aug, 2012

    I don't know if they'd fit in too well at Soundwave though.

  • bjw1 on the 16th Aug, 2012

    Second announcement is [possibly/apparently] being pushed forward to tomorrow afternoon.

  • ss249 on the 16th Aug, 2012

    at the drive in would be good..

  • loudQUIETloud on the 16th Aug, 2012

    On their own tour? I agree.

  • Oflick on the 16th Aug, 2012

    Apparantely the 2nd announcement is being emailed to everyone on the mailing list at 4pm tomorrow afternoon. As opposed to 4pm tomorrow morning.

  • DinkiDIDude on the 16th Aug, 2012

    please please please ( I know ill get verbally killed for posting this by a few people), but please no f*****g tool on the second announcement, I realise im one of the few human beings on earth that thinks these guys are beyond overated, but god did anyone else sit through their entire set at bdo 11?, boring is an understatement for a band that charges top dollar and is more famous for the animations created by their frontman than their actual music!.....rant over.

  • Oflick on the 16th Aug, 2012

    No way would a band that big be left over until the second announcement. And when you consider that APC is playing and Puscifer heavily rumoured, Tool just seems impossible.

  • John_The_Fisherman on the 16th Aug, 2012

    i heard refused are going to do a headline tour towards the end of the year. tool have also been (unfortunately) ruled out for sw13, but aj said in a tweet today he'd consider them sw14 with the anticipated new album due to be released next year also. puscifer will most likely do a handful of sideshows instead of doing sw.

  • tyler07 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    It's confirmed that it's coming today. 4pm via email to SW mail list members.

  • berlinchair101 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    What was the soundwave tour announcement that was meant to come this morning?

  • tyler07 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    High on Fire. I'm convinced Refused are playing SW.

  • berlinchair101 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    I really don't want Refused to play Soundwave.

  • Napoleon Solo on the 17th Aug, 2012

    High on Fire. I'm convinced Refused are playing SW. Pretty certain they are touring in November.

  • redman300_bulldogs on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Im still hoping that Dethklok play...

  • Oflick on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Bullet For My Valentine and Cypress Hill apparently.

  • RAMONESelaar on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Slayer too from the look of it - AJ retweeted someone celebrating them. Still waiting on my email.

  • kaydee on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Still waiting for the email to reach my inbox from AJ's man cave but Twitter is saying Slayer & Bullet for My Valentine. Batdan will be happy.

  • RAMONESelaar on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Slayer, Cypress Hill, BFMV and The Early November are all on it, going by twitter/facebook

  • kaydee on the 17th Aug, 2012

  • berlinchair101 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    I havn't got an email. I didn't get a presale one either.

  • Oflick on the 17th Aug, 2012

    I'd have thought someone would have posted it on facebook instead of just saying "awesome I have the 2nd announcement!"

  • andy_chalmers_102 on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Fucked Up, Gallows and Polar Bear Club. That, with Motion City Soundtrack, Wonder Years, Lucero and Red Fang means I can justify a ticket.

    Cerebral Ballzy is one of the greatest band names ever.

  • Oflick on the 17th Aug, 2012

    I always mistake "The Dear Hunter" for "Deerhunter", but they're two different bands. Don't you all feel a little better now that you know that?

  • Silver Surfer on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Yes, yes, yes, fucking SLAYER!!! Little bit excited over here, my staff are wondering why I'm yelling 'Woo hoo!'

  • RAMONESelaar on the 17th Aug, 2012

    It's a shame their album is several shades of meh. So much potential wasted

  • Fake Plastic Android on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Just noticed this.

  • kaydee on the 17th Aug, 2012

    There is also this: AJ ‏@iamnotshouting @JimmyCristofaro Locals. Also, The Vandals haven't confirmed yet so we have to have another announcement :0) The Vandals!!!!!!!! Could this be happening????

  • Napoleon Solo on the 17th Aug, 2012

    I always mistake "The Dear Hunter" for "Deerhunter", but they're two different bands. Don't you all feel a little better now that you know that? I have lost count of the number of people that confuse them.

  • batdan on the 17th Aug, 2012

    Slayer are playing. Cool. I wonder which goat I will bring? Cypress Hill will be good to see. So glad for Fucked Up to come out again, hope they do a sidey somewhere.

    So how many children did you sacrifice for this to occur, Batdan?

    So as i'm on holidays and have very little to do i'm going to attempt to listen to the bands I don't know on the Soundwave lineup. Wish me luck as I start on this extremely dangerous journey.

  • tyler07 on the 27th Aug, 2012

    Ok, so after my sleuthing these are some bands that should be checked out by people who don't know them: Cerebral Ballzy, Such Gold, Versus The World, Lucero, Red Fang And bands who should be avoided like the plague (but seriously these bands are AIDS): Blood on the Dancefloor, Danko Jones, Woe Is Me, Of Mice and Men, Memphis May Fire, The Blackout

  • Fake Plastic Android on the 27th Aug, 2012

    Lucero and Red Fang were two big draws for me so I'll check out those other three bands.

    Ok, so after my sleuthing these are some bands that should be checked out by people who don't know them: Cerebral Ballzy, Such Gold, Versus The World, Lucero, Red Fang Other than Cerebral Ballzy, they're all bands that I'm definitely looking forward to seeing. Looks like there'll be enough to fill a day.

  • berlinchair101 on the 28th Aug, 2012

    I don't mind Lucero, they were pretty good when I saw them open for Dropkicks. I would never say I was excited for them though.

  • tyler07 on the 28th Aug, 2012

    So after my close inspection of the Soundwave lineup there are about 10 bands I really want to see and a further 10 i'd be happy to see so I'm looking forward to it alot more in terms of the whole day now, especially after the 2nd lineup.

  • waylon black on the 28th Aug, 2012

    Sylosis bring a sound that in parts makes me think of Heartwork era Carcass, dare say I'll be checking them out.

  • BundyandCola on the 2nd Sep, 2012

    I would love to see some acts that are already on Soundwave that bring their real bands out. A couple of prime examples are Brant Bjork and The Bros and The Marc Of Cain. Dave Lambardo could play with Tomahawk. Jon Stanier could play with anyone. Yet all wish he was playing with TMOC.

  • monokhrome_nite on the 3rd Sep, 2012

    I would love to see some acts that are already on Soundwave that bring their real bands out. Yes I too am sick of all these fake bands on the lineup.

  • Oflick on the 3rd Sep, 2012

    If anything Soundwave needs more fake bands. Where the fuck is Spinal Tap?

  • tyler07 on the 3rd Sep, 2012

    I assumed Blood on the Dancefloor were a fake band. How depressing it was to find out it isn't so...
