[HED] p.e. Anounces 2012 Australian Dates

And Jeffrey Nothing's coming along for the ride!

California G-Punk legends (HED) p.e. announced its upcoming 2012 Australian tour with Suburban Noize label mate, Mushroomhead vocalist and solo artist Jeffrey Nothing earlier this week.

When it comes to Australia [HED]p.e needs no introduction. The band has enjoyed a long running love affair with fans in this country ignited by [HED]p.e.'s genre defying blend of punk, hip hop, hardcore and metal. The band is touring in support of its eighth studio album Truth Rising, which sees (HED)p.e. become the voice for a movement that empowers youth, revealing the seedy underbelly of our current political global climate. On Truth Rising, (Hed)p.e. is the air raid siren waking up youth across the globe.

“We are excited to get back to Australia in early 2012 and play for all the renegades overseas,” enthused founding (Hed)p.e. member Jared Gomes. “We’ve done a couple of tours of Australia and the underground down under has always embraced our music. I’m excited this time to be bringing our brother Jeffrey Nothing overseas with us so you can check out his new live show. Australia get ready…”

Fans of industrial metal will know Jeffrey Nothing as the masked vocalist and founding member of Cleveland, Ohio alt metal pioneers Mushroomhead. Along with his work with the renowned outfit Jeffrey is signed to Suburban Noize as a solo artist and will be featuring not only classic Mushroomhead tracks but also the latest music from his brand new album The New Psychodalia. Mixing hypnotic rhythmic grooves and punishing riffs, along with Jeffrey Nothing's beautifully deranged lyrics, The New Psychodalia is a tormented soundscape that will shake listeners to the core.

"I no longer have to sit and wonder about the glory of Australia, as we head down under with our label mates and brothers in (Hed)p.e," added Jeffrey Nothing. "These shows will be some of the first live shows we've done in support of my new solo album, so we're extra excited to get out on the road and play these songs live.”

As an added bonus for what are sure to be amazing shows all ticket purchasers will receive a download code to a special digital package featuring exclusive tracks from (HED)p.e. and Jeffrey Nothing. Joining (HED)p.e. and Jeffrey Nothing in all states except Perth as main support will be pure metal merchants Recoil.
