MONOLITH FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES COHEED AND CAMBRIA, PERIPHERY AND MORE

Monolith launched on to the Australian festival circuit in 2022 to incredible success. Monolith is thrilled to announce its triumphant return, bringing an unbeatable curation of international names and Australian favourites to venues around the country this November.

Alongside the incredible lineup will be workshops, panels, market stalls and DJ’s to further enhance the festival experience for Australian prog fans.

Headlined by New York prog rock icons Coheed And Cambria on their first Australian tour since 2016, Monolith 2024 comes out the gate swinging.  An unbeatable live act, Coheed and Cambria are making their long overdue return with a special Neverender set performing their critically acclaimed album ‘Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through Madness’ in its entirety.  Widely regarded as one of their most impactful records, ‘Good Apollo, Volume One’ has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, showcasing their signature conceptual brilliance and musicality.

Along with the Monolith headline set, fans will be treated to a unique Q&A panel: Celebrating 20 Years Of The Amory Wars: The Past, Present And Future with Claudio Sanchez. The panel will delve into the band’s series of graphic novels and comics, providing a deeper understanding of the intricate world that Coheed and Cambria have created

Washington D.C.’s Periphery, make their long-awaited return to Australia. The band’s latest album, ‘Periphery V: Djent Is Not A Genre’, brought the group critical acclaim, cementing Periphery as leaders in modern progressive metal.   With seven self-produced studio albums to their name, the Grammy-nominated five-piece have continued to defy the boundaries of conventionality, bringing new life to the progressive metal world.

Innovative Norwegian progressive metal outfit Leprous joins the Monolith lineup as another exciting addition, with the five-piece set to bring their new album ‘Melodies of Atonement’ (set for release this August) to Australia, along with a selection of dynamic cuts from their seven-album strong catalogue. The music of Leprous has been praised for its avant-garde approach to alternative metal and prog, with Tor Oddmund Suhrke and Einar Solberg’s compositions continuously ensuring that the band’s central sound chases a blend of genres, instead of aligning itself with one and one alone.

The celebration continues with the inclusion of Canadian instrumental group Intervals. Formed in Toronto in 2011, Intervals quickly earned their stripes as a fresh force in the djent and prog metal scene. Masterful instrumentalists with a savvy hold on melody and arrangement, Intervals have continued to produce material that redefines their vision; their 2014 debut ‘A Voice Within’ established a strong presence, and through into their latest album, 2023’s ‘Memory Palace’, the band has shown no signs of wavering.

Adding some more European flair to the lineup for Monolith, is French metalcore/prog five-piece Novelists who will tour Australia for the first time this November. 2023 marked a new era for the band with the addition of vocalist Camille Contreras, solidifying their status as a respected and influential force in the contemporary metal scene.

Completing the stacked Monolith lineup for 2024, is Melbourne’s Silver Fang– appearing at each festival date except Sydney. Emerging onto the scene with their debut single ‘Cross-Talk’ in 2022, the four-piece quickly built on early buzz; capturing an exciting blend of metalcore, gothic and electronic music that has created an unique sonic playground from which they create today. The band’s 2024 project ‘Labyrinth’ reinforces the fresh perspective Silver Fang have on modern heavy music – they represent the new wave of young innovative artists putting their own twist on the foundational genre sounds.

In addition to electrifying performances, fans will be treated to unique experiences, including a Q&A panel: ‘Celebrating 20 years of ‘The Amory Wars’: The past, present and future’ with Claudio Sanchez, guitar and drum  workshops with Periphery, Keyan and David Parkes and much more.

Don’t Miss an epic day this November at Monolith! One stage, no clashes.
