NATIONAL TOUR TO
+ Add Additional Shows in Kingscliff, Newcastle & Wollongong
Karnivool have nudged their upcoming Australian tour to March 2021. Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, The Decade of Sound Awake Tour – originally scheduled for April 2020 then pushed to September 2020 – will now take place in March 2021 with the addition of three new shows in Kingscliff, Newcastle and Wollongong.
All tickets remain valid for the new rescheduled shows.

STATEMENT FROM KARNIVOOL:
The last few weeks have made it very obvious that we will need to reschedule The Decade of Sound Awake tour. Events in Victoria (much love to everyone there!) and an abundance of caution in other parts of the country mean it would be very difficult for the tour to cross some state borders and now does not feel like the best time to gather together in celebration. And – let’s face it – it’s going to get sweaty and the singalong will be huge – we want everyone to feel good about that!
We are not willing to compromise the show planned and this tour is not one that can be done in parts, so we are moving the dates to March 2021. This may seem like aeons away but it’s the best way we can assure everyone that it will happen then safely.
A slim silver lining, we are able to add a few more shows – so look out fans in Kingscliff, Newcastle and Wollongong, the tour is coming to you!
Fans in Western Australia also keep an eye out – we have a different treat lined up for you, more news on that soon.
All tickets remain valid for the new shows so hold on to them and please hold onto all the “11th Anniversary” jokes cause we have already made them…
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, moreinteresting 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.
