System of a Down Sidewaves Announced

Two big arena shows to go with the festival headline slots...

Those who know about these things say there is no other band around who can match the audacity, intensity and progressive nature of System Of A Down - With the band operating at such astonishing creative and emotional heights they quite simply leave the rest of the herd scrabbling in the dust.

It was 2001’s Toxicity that cemented the band's reputation. With every track tightly coiled, urgent and “cast in layers upon layers of aural intricacy, Toxicity charters new frontiers, yet it’s still grinding rock at its most deafening.”  – L.A Weekly

In 2005, against all odds, the completed Mezmerize/Hypnotize project was unleashed and it quickly became impossible to think of it as anything else than one epic piece of work. SOAD delivered, and in doing so have given us one of the great rock double albums of all time….”rarely are albums this thrillingly original”. Q Magazine

As the headliners for the 2012 Soundwave Festival, System of a Down will be bringing its frantic, frenetic and brutal live assault to Sydney and Melbourne for two headline sideshows only.
