Adelaide heavyweights ISAW are finally set to storm the country during May and June with their debut album The Identity.
ISAW front man Matt Kavanagh said the tour was crucial after the immense effort that went into completing
The Identity. "We're all pumped to hit the road and get the hell out of town, it's been on the cards for a long
time and it's a great feeling to be backing it up with a full album. After so much stress and pressure it is finally
our time to let loose and have some fun" Kavanagh said.
The Identity was six months in the making that saw the band record the album at Deep Blue Studios in
Adelaide and then have it mixed and mastered at Sing Sing South Studios in Melbourne. ARIA Award
nominated producer Forrester Savell was engaged for the production of the album and had the following to
say of the band - “ISAW grabbed my attention from the moment they sent through their rough mixes. Cleverly
thought out tunes from dedicated musicians are in abundance on this record. Their blend of world -class metal
with such a killer vocalist puts them in a league of their own” Savell said.
ISAW was nominated in the top five artists in the country for the metal hardcore category at the MusicOz
Awards and also won Triple J’s unearthed competition in 2010. The bands biggest highlight to date is opening
the Metal Stage at Soundwave 2010 for the likes of Faith No More, Meshuggah, Trivium and Anthrax.
