More Soundwave bands

The few remaining bands for next year's Soundwave festival have been slowly leaking. Two more have come out over the last few days. The big one, that I am actually excited for, is Swedish skate-punk pioneers Millencolin

It's weird to think that it has been 10 years since they released the album Pennybridge Pioneers, which gave them notoriety for songs such as Penguins and Polarbears and No Cigar. Their last tour was a 2008, following the release of the album Machine 15. I saw them play a great mix of their old songs and new songs in a very energetic and enjoyable gig. A great live band.

The other announcement are the post-hardcore boys from Gympie gone big: Amity Affliction. I've seen these guys more times than I can remember, from pre-EP days through to earlier this year. If you haven't heard of them by now, you probably don't go to live music in Brisbane very often. They've played pretty much every Soundwave festival in Brisbane, starting as the opening local band in the very first one.
