News : Metal icons Voivod celebrate 35th anniversary with Aussie tour

By on November 12, 2018

Canadian based thrash metal icons, Voivod have confirmed a special tour of Australia next year to celebrate the band’s 35th anniversary. The band kicked off their journey in 1982 when the band officially formed and released their debut album ‘War and Pain’ two years later (84′) through Metal Blade Records, which received positive reviews and solid sales within the first 2 years of its release.

Wednesday, January 23rd – Brisbane – Crow Bar
Thursday, January 24th – Canberra – The Basement

Saturday, January 26th – Melbourne – Max Watts

Presale: Tuesday 13th November 10am- Tuesday 13th November 11:59pm
General Sale: Wednesday 14th November 10am

Voivod went on to become one of the innovators of progressive thrash metal alongside the likes Blind Illusion, AtheistCoroner and countless others. Voivod is currently promoting their fourteenth studio album ‘The Wake’, available now via Century Media Records.

Founding member, vocalist Denis “Snake” Belanger prowls the stage and wins crowds with his mischievous charm whilst co-founder Michel “Away” Langevin on drums and new bassist Dominic “Rocky” Laroche pulverise the audience with intensely intricate patterns. Having recovered from the devastating loss of Denis “Piggy” D’Amour in 2005, VOIVOD has been invigorated by the increasingly imaginative presence of Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain who, ten years in, not only can channel Piggy’s groundbreaking guitar work but is developing new dimensions of sound guaranteed to shatter psyches and fire nerve-ends.
