Alexisonfire will headline Unify

Alexisonfire will headline Unify alonside Violent Soho, and Northlane as part of the 26 band lineup over two huge nights.

Alexisonfire is coming together for a special Australian performance in January 2017 to headline Unify Festival.

This is the first Australian appearance since their anticipated sold-out 10th Anniversary Australian dates in 2012.

One of the biggest bands to come out of Canada's underground music scene, Alexisonfire released four hugely successful albums, amassing a legion of fans the world over.

Multi award-winners in their native Canada, Alexisonfire has topped sales charts in North America and achieved a Top 20 ARIA Chart debut in Australia with 2009's Old Crows/Young Cardinals.

They performed on the main stage of legendary festivals like UK's Reading and Leeds, Riot Fest and took over native Toronto, ON for a six night stay boasting over 9000 tickets sold, and sold out tours in Canada, US, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Japan.

UNIFY has been a smashing success since its inception with UNIFY 2015 famously selling out of its 3000 ticket allocation in just three hours, while its second year also sold out of all 5000 tickets well before the event kicked off.

THE LINEUP:

As such, the lineup includes 20 Australian artists including performances by recent breakthrough successes like Violent Soho, Northlane, Thy Art Is Murder and Luca Brasi, as well as legacy sets from House Vs Hurricane, The Getaway Plan and I Killed The Prom Queen.

Joining the absolute best heavy bands Australia has to offer will be international heavyweights Alexisonfire (CA), Every Time I Die (US), letlive. (US), Moose Blood (UK), Counterparts (CA) and The Dirty Nil (CA).

Every Time I Die will feel right at home on the festival stage when they return to Australia in 2017.

These New Yorkers have played the main stage of the Big Day Out in 2013 as well as completed countless headlining laps of our continent.

Currently travelling around the US on their seventh Vans Warped Tour, this morning Every Time I Die announced their brand new album, Low Teens, out September 23 on Epitaph Records.

The Getaway Plan will be venturing back to 2008 to play their wildly successful album, Other Voices, Other Rooms, in its entirety.

Upon its release, their critically acclaimed debut was a chart success, landing at #14 on the ARIA Chart and #1 on the AIR Chart. This will be the first time they've ever performed the album in full.

letlive. will be making their first trek Down Under since scaling the scaffolding and completely destroying stages on Soundwave 2014.

With a sound that Afropunk described as "the first truly unique post-hardcore band in years", LA's most radical soul punks have just scored their first ARIA Chart #18 with their fourth album, If I'm The Devil… which is out now via Epitaph.

When letlive. let the passion unfurl onstage, their UNIFY debut will be one of the most explosive Tarwin Lower has seen yet.

Early Bird tickets were released earlier this month to previous attendees of the festival only, incredibly all 2000 tickets flew out the door in under 24 hours, without the backing of a lineup announcement.

Any fans who missed out on the Early Bird sale will have another chance to secure tickets when the general public sale goes on Friday June 24 at 12pm AEST via 24Hundred.net.

Once again, UNIFY will be held in the small rural town of Tarwin Lower, situated on their recreation reserve and football field just like the 2015 and 2016 events.
