smlXabPerhaps the heaviest hardcore band in recent years, XIBALBA from Pomona, CA are on their way to Australia for the first time in April. Their sound has been likened to Disembodied, Earth Crisis and Obituary, with aggressive speed giving way to apocalyptic breakdowns and brutality.


Anti-Flag will be heading back to Australia this May / June and they’ll be joined by Strike Anywhere and The Flatliners on this run of dates through Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney and Wollongong.
