Hardcore’s most punishing supergroup END have announced their debut Australian tour, set to smash faces along the East Coast in June.
END is a collection of musicians from various corners of extreme music, including current and former members of the genres’ biggest acts: Counterparts, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Fit For An Autopsy, Misery Signals, Shai Hulud and Reign Supreme.
The brainchild of renowned producer Will Putney (Fit For An Autopsy) and vocalist Brendan Murphy (Counterparts), END quickly became the band on everyone’s lips through the sheer savagery of their brand of hardcore/grind. The band’s debut album, Splinters from an Ever-Changing Face (2020), comes for everything in its way with a sonic excavator, leaving behind nothing but pure carnage. Kerrang! gave the record full marks, calling it a “primal howl of distilled rage and anxiety”. Metal Hammer said the album is “a passion project that’s played with sheer cathartic malevolence”, while Stereogum put it simply by labeling it “absolute wreckage”.
These shows will become the stuff of legend in the Australian heavy scene, don’t snooze on tickets because you’ll be sorry.
