Soundwave Festival had it's first announcement for the return of the annual tour in 2013 & re-enforced the doubt in peoples heads from the issues surrounding SWRevolution earlier in the year that the organisers can still impress the public with a killer lineup proposed for next year!

There are some huge names, some of which have some might think are out-dated, but those who agree can stay at home....right?

Unfortunately with so many bands that I'd like to see always means I'll have to cull the list due to clashes, however my favourites from the 65 odd announced:
Slipknot, SOAD, ADTR, Limp Bizkit, Machine Head, Lamb Of God, Trivium, Coal Chamber (who of which are re-uniting for Soundwave!), Dillenger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Underoath, Hatebreed, Times Of Grace, CKY, Dragonforce, Hell Yeah & Chimaira.

With more still to be announced in the coming months.

It will be my 6th year shooting the event now after covering 3 in Sydney & what will be my 3rd now in Perth, I thought I'd do up a post showcasing some of the shots I've taken of the artists on previous tours to Australia.

The Soundwave Team attempted to put on a second show in it's festival cycle, while unfortunately the original product didn't go ahead they still managed to tour some great bands in a mini festival to keep the keen punters happy and prepare them for the summer gig period.

The Perth scene somewhat let us down in ticket sales which meant the show was downgraded from Challenge Stadium to Amplifer/Capitol which ended up having some benefits as you wouldn't get to see some of these bands in an intimate pub environment anymore, nor would they have been mingling/drinking with the fans as much in an arena setting.

Unfortunately fulltime work got the best of me prior to the show so I did not shoot as many bands as I could have, however I hope you like some of the shots below from We Are The Ocean, The Damned Things, Hellogoodbye, We Are The In Crowd, Alesana, Story Of The Year, Yellowcard, All Time Low & Panic! At The Disco.
