The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News
Australia’s Karnivool have just wrapped up their SOLD OUT “NEW DAY TOUR” in Australia and are thrilled to announce that they’ll be returning stateside this mont for the North American leg. Named after the eight minute epic from their recently released full length Sound Awake, the NEW DAY TOUR will commence August 6th in Vancouver before looping the U.S. and ending in Los Angeles Sept 13th. Tampa’s Tides of man will open for most of the dates.

The band will also be doing a live webcast of an acoustic performance at the Blip FM studios on Wednesday Aug. 4th at 2PM (pacific standard time). The performance will be broadcast on the Karnivool Blip FM channel and fans will be able to log in and comment via Blip, Facebook and Twitter.

“It’s time for a good ol’ North American road trip again,” attests guitarist Drew Goddard. “Look for the big white van full fo weird Aussies with bad hair and guitars pulling up at a town near you.”

Karnviool just played their first UK Festival slot on August 1st as part of the Sonicsphere Festival in Knebworth on the MAIN STAGE with Iron Maiden, Alice in Chains & Slayer.

Critical Praise of Sound Awake has been global with Rolling Stone Austrailia awarding the album 4 STARS and calling it “A sprawling work of melody, mood, tempo and musicianship…intricacy, pedantry and perfections.” Dan Slessor of KERRANG! Exclaims “Their sound is a fine one indeed – exploratyrt and spacious, heavy, truly epic, and gorgeously melodic” and Elliott Politte of Guitar EDGE confirms “if you’re looking to get your socks rocked off, you don’t have to look much further than Sound Awake.”

Slash also recently called out the band as one of his favorite new artists when the legendary ax-man was recently interviewed by MTV. 

Karnivool’s thunderous anthem “Set Fire to the Hive” from Sound Awake is currently at rock radio. The below video and track are available for download and free to post.
