    After shocking the Aussie heavy music scene by announcing a comeback earlier this week, Sunk Loto have today announced their first live shows in 15 years!

    The Gold Coast nu-metal icons turned alt-metal monsters will hit the stage for two shows in their native Queensland, playing one date at Burleigh Heads on July 29th and one date in Brisbane on August 6th. Tickets for both of these shows are on sale right now via Moshtix. 

    If you had to list the most important heavy Australian albums of all time, it’s likely that Sunk Loto’s 2003 release Between Birth and Death would be near the top, and metal aficionados still consider the band one of the most influential home-grown bands of the early 2000s. At Maniacs we've always felt Between Birth and Death is an underappreciated classic of an exciting era for heavy music in Australia. For 15 years it has been considered the final destination point on a dizzying ascent for a band that burned bright befoe cruelly fading away. 

    Signed to Sony in 1999 when the average age of the band members was 16, Sunk Loto released an EP and two albums over their 10-year history. They toured the world with bands like KornLinkin ParkSuicidal TendenciesPerfect CircleDeftones, and Sevendust, and staked their claim as an epic live band at festivals such as Big Day Out, Homebake, Vans Warped Tour, Splendour in The Grass, and Falls. 
     
    Now, after 15 years apart, Sunk Loto are geared up to announce a return to the stage with shows along the east coast this winter, the shows will feature all four original members,  lead guitarist Luke McDonald, bassist Sean Van Gennip, vocalist Jason Brown, and drummer Dane Brown, who have come together to reconnect with their fans, entertain, have fun, and reignite their love of playing music. 

    After "five years of silence" x 3, now is the moment for Queenslander's (and dedicated interstaters) to catch Sunk Loto back at it.
