Look, if you aren't familiar with Frontierer, they are extreme. It's chaotic, it's brutal, it's heavy, it's f**kin' spectacular. They're coming down under it seems, and they're bringing Brissy lads Apate with them, which is SICCCCK.

More Frontierer More Frontierer

Scottish legends FRONTIERER are coming to Australian shores for the very first time this October and have installed Brissy boys Apate as their support act across the country.... which is sick news if you like sonic chaos.

The band say that they are "...incredibly excited to be heading to Australia to play a limited number of shows in October. We have a strong fanbase and we've been eager to perform over there for a number of years, so we're really looking forward to some crazy shows.” 

If you aren't across them, they were originally a two-person bedroom project created by Scottish guitarist and primary songwriter Pedram Valiani and American vocalist Chad Kapper. Since then, they have grown to become a fully-fledged touring machine with bassist Calum Craig, guitarist Dan Stevenson, and drummer Luke Coursey fleshing out the current lineup.

Joining Frontierer on all shows are Brisbane’s Apate. Cutting their teeth by sharing stages with scene heavyweights like Polaris, Thornhill, Born Of Osiris, Void Of Vision and She Cries Wolf, Apate now hold their own and dominate the east coast heavy scene. Recently signing to Human Warfare records, a label created and run by Andy Marsh of Thy Art Is Murder, to release their Rage EP in 2021, Apate are a band who bleed out their experiences, with their indescribably songs reflecting a chaos of the mind.
