2019 IN­COM­ING!

Kerrang! (UK) - - Cover Story -

Jan­uary shouldn’t feel so quiet this year with PAPA ROACH un­veil­ing al­bum 10, and AVATAR bring­ing vaudevil­lian mad­ness to UK venues. DEFTONES’ ninth full-length will hope­fully be with us soon too, while BE­HE­MOTH’S UK Fe­bru­ary re­turn looks set to be un­for­get­table. Noise­mak­ers VEIN also tour then, as do Sh­effield bruis­ers WHILE SHE SLEEPS, cul­mi­nat­ing with the big­gest show of their ca­reer at Lon­don’s Round­house on the day new al­bum So What? hits shelves. It’s a busy start to 2019 for fel­low Brits SVAL­BARD with shows on ei­ther side of Easter, and for BURY TO­MOR­ROW, who join PARK­WAY DRIVE and THY ART IS MUR­DER for a show in Manch­ester be­fore head­ing to Rus­sia. April will also see “new jams” from HIGH ON FIRE, and IN

FLAMES on tour in sup­port of lat­est ef­fort I, The Mask. BUL­LET FOR MY VALEN­TINE make their Slam Dunk de­but in May, which is also when

DIS­TURBED bring the sick­ness to the UK and GHOST be­gin their Euro­pean trek sup­port­ing

METALLICA for sta­dium dates in June. We could also po­ten­tially see new things from be­he­moths like QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and PROPHETS OF RAGE. Then there are works-in-progress from THE DARK­NESS and TRIV­IUM – who play Down­load along­side LAMB OF GOD, THE AMITY AF­FLIC­TION and POWER TRIP. GOJIRA are said to be still fi­nal­is­ing their sev­enth full-length, while BODY COUNT’S Ice-t has re­vealed that they too are record­ing al­bum seven. And what next for

MA­CHINE HEAD and SYS­TEM OF A DOWN? Can each over­come their check­ered MORE 2018s? Time will tell…
