Spawning a global legacy and critical acclaim for over two decades, American rockers STORY OF THE YEAR are set to return to Australia this August, stopping by Forum Melbourne on Thursday 8 August, to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of their debut album Page Avenue and perform all their greatest hits.

A band classed as helping to shape the post hardcore landscape, STORY OF THE YEAR blend loud guitars, singalong choruses and a permeating sense of positivity into their enduring creations. Erupting onto the scene back in 2003 via their debut album Page Avenue, which became one of the first of its kind to sell a million copies, the group would go on to tour alongside the greats of their stylistic surrounds, including Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Deftones and The Used.

SENSES FAIL are also set to perform their 2004 debut album Let It Enfold You in full across the tour, alongside BEHIND CRIMSON EYES flying the Aussie flag this August. 

Now in command of six studio albums, including In The Wake of Determination (2005), The Black Swan (2008), The Constant (2010), Wolves (2017) and their most recent 2023 full length Tear Me To Pieces, STORY OF THE YEAR have also cultivated a diehard legion of global fans over the years, with the tight-knit group dedicated to authentically connecting with their audience both through their music and dynamic live reputation. From teenagers working in a pizza shop through to hitting hard rock headliner status, STORY OF THE YEAR remain as potent as they were over two decades ago.

Hailing from New Jersey, SENSES FAIL emerged in the early 2000s, ultimately stamping their mark on the scene with their 2004 debut album Let It Enfold You. Blending emo and screamo elements, Let It Enfold You also boasted iconic hits Buried a Lie, Bite to Break Skin and Rum Is for Drinking, Not for Burning. Certified gold, Let It Enfold You would ultimately set the scene for ongoing successes for SENSES FAIL, with the five-piece going on to release eight studio albums and tour the globe alongside the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Silverstein, Stick To Your Guns and many more. 

One of Australia's most beloved post hardcore acts, Melbourne's BEHIND CRIMSON EYES are well versed in welding heavy rock with elements of screamo, pop and beyond. Snagging mainstream attention courtesy of their 2006 debut album, A Revelation For Despair, BEHIND CRIMSON EYES debuted in the ARIA Albums Chart Top 50 via their maiden LP, before going on to tour with bands including Bullet For My Valentine, Artreyu, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed. Roaring back to life in 2017 after a hiatus, Melbourne's BEHIND CRIMSON EYES are back bigger and better than ever.

Don’t miss this legendary night at Forum Melbourne this August!
