Soundwave 2013 clues - partthree

Soundwave festival boss AJ Maddah loves to chat with his Twitter followers and drop a few clues about the festival lineup and some of the other tours he and his team are working on. Knowing this we decided to keep tabs on Maddah’s tip off and ‘clues’ to help us play the annual Soundwave lineup guessing game.

That game no longer has an off-season and Maddah has already dropped will over two hundred tweets of Soundwave info that have helped confirm or rule out a stack of bands. Basically we’ve been digging through AJ’s tweets to find the good stuff so that you don’t have to read his reviews of various football teams, airline services, food, books and super hero movies. (Although if you’re really interested in that stuff – AJ’s a fan of The Avengers, jerk chicken, Milan Kundera and seems to have a terrible time on international flights.)

For the stuff you really care about check out Soundwave 2013 – early clues and Soundwave 2013 – more early clues.

And for the latest comments, clues and news – read on.

Not much of interest there. Will be interesting to see who the headliner is this year...

ha, not a showcase for garage bands. it's not like australias actually lacking in talent in the music department. every other festival in the country puts on australian bands, its a good platform for them

when he says brand new looks positive, does that mean for sw or for another tour this year? i'd hate to miss them and i'll be overseas for sw next year.

Needs Fucked Up and The Bronx again with Suicidal Tendencies, NOFX and Fear Factory with local veterans Tumbleweed, The Meanies and The Hard-Ons thanks.

I would be leaning more towards solo tour, if they do play soundwave I really hope they have a sideshow.

AJ should book Cheap Trick as the headliner.

Oflick said on the 12th Jun, 2012



HAHAHAHA! Australian bands at Soundwave? You crack me up.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 12th Jun, 2012

On another srs note though, Brand New headlining tour plz.

no doubt to headline according to musicfeeds?

grattan

grattan said on the 13th Jun, 2012



um... yeah, sure.

The solid evidence for this 'news' is this comment from AJ Maddah on Twitter:

Punter question - new album for @nodoubt in september, are they looking at coming to aus in the next year?
AJ's reply - yes, they are.

SOLID PROOF!

i tried to post the link to the article but it just sat there doing nothing. also i have no caps for some reason?

this was there headline - no doubt highly likely for soundwave 2013

written by brayden darke on 13th june, 2012

of course if they played they'd be top 3 billing.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 13th Jun, 2012

They'd be pretty low, what with Green Day, Metallica, Blink-182, The Prodigy, and Linkin Park all cofirmed.

Oflick said on the 13th Jun, 2012

It was meant to be a joke, so I probably should have put it in magenta.

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 13th Jun, 2012

Brand New will either be on the Soundwave Bill or will do their own headline tour... AJ has offered them both options.

Headline tour plz.

MilkySheep

MilkySheep said on the 13th Jun, 2012

Brand New could be playing Harvest.

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 13th Jun, 2012



I would love that, but I highly doubt it.

AJ said he offered them either soundwave or a headline tour.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 13th Jun, 2012

The latest tip is No Doubt as one of the headliners. I can't be fucked looking up the source, AJ tweeted it or something.

grattan

grattan said on the 13th Jun, 2012



Discussed above. Flimsy rumour is flimsy.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 13th Jun, 2012

Oops, and yes, it is extremely flimsy. I hope it's true though.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 14th Jun, 2012

To break away from the Harvest thread for a minute, do you think Mike Patton coming down for the second time this year mean Tomahawk are unlikely for Soundwave?
