ADD 2ND BRISBANE SHOW TO THEIR
NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN TOUR IN OCTOBER
Northlane are in full swing into their Alien world tour in support of their #3 ARIA Chart debut, Alien, hailed album of the year and receiving flawless reviews by fans and critics world wide.
After slapping a couple of sold out signs on their upcoming national Australian tour and due to high demand, Northlane are thrilled to add a 2nd Brisbane show at the Triffid on Sunday, October 13.
“We’re halfway through our North American shows, our first return to the USA in 4 years and it feels like a dream come true. We were so happy to be able to add a second Brisbane date as so many missed out, we cannot wait to return to home shores and give you the Alien experience.” – says Josh Smith

Released on August 2, Northlane’s fifth studio album, Alien, stormed up the ARIA album chart with a #3 chart debut, their 4th top 3 record. For a band that have traditionally focused on wider issues in the outside world, Alien is easily the most personal statement of their career. “I was raised in hell but I made it out,” says Northlane vocalist Marcus Bridge. “Raised in a place I shouldn’t have been, and no child should have been. But I’ve been able to break free.”
While some long-time listeners might assume that the title Alien is a continuation of the space and futuristic themes that have characterised previous Northlane albums, it’s instead a reflection of the alienation Bridge felt as a child “who grew up in a weird, unusual household and who was bullied at school because of it”.
Produced by the band themselves, the album was recorded at Chris Blancato’s studio in Sydney, where Northlane recorded their first EP, 2010’s Hollow Existence. Bridge did his vocals at Sydney’s Electric Sun Studios, where the quintet made their 2011 debut album, Discoveries.
For a band marking their 10th anniversary in 2019, Alien is a bold leap forward; the work of a group fighting their way out of their corner by moving forward rather than looking back. Their previous three albums may have debuted in the Top 5 in Australia – with Node landing at Number One before going on to win an ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock or Heavy Metal Album, an accolade also awarded to Mesmer – but Northlane are in no mood to play it safe.
