VENOM INC + EXCITER – Melbourne – Northcote Social Club – POSTPONED

December 31, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:45 pm AEDT

THIS SHOW IS BEING RESCHEDULED, THE DATE IS NOT 31 DEC 2022, IT IS JUST A HOLD DATE UNTIL A NEW DATE CAN BE BOOKED.
Venom Inc, Exciter and Hardline Media are all sorry to confirm that we have to postpone the planned shows in November 2021 to a date when things are more safer and borders open. As we speak, touring has opened up overseas, Australia is not far behind, but with all these snap lockdowns and border closures, this current climate is just to risky for the bands, and of course YOU, the fans!!!! Not just for health and safety reasons, but also due to the risk of another snap lockdown, the uncertainty is too risky. With vaccinations now rolling out, we hopefully wont be too far behind the rest of the world and we can get back to Thrashing it out . . looking like within the next 12 months. Please hold on to your ticket, it will remain valid for the new shows.

A message from Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan from VENOM INC – ““It is very sad to hear Australia is still locked again and struggling with covid. My heart goes to all to be safe and win over this so we can return to a somewhat normal life. Of course it means we are restricted for even entering the country so we aren’t allowed to perform..The moment we can, we will..it seems like it’s been forever as it is. We have the new album finished and are now just biting at the bit to get to you live so while we are forced to postpone right now we WILL come as soon as they say we can get in!!
Be well, be safe and SEE YOU AS SOON AS WE CAN to loose our shit together as one!??Tony D ‘The Demolition Man”

VENOM INC & EXCITER – AUSTRALIA 2021 TOUR!!!

HARDLINE MEDIA proudly presents, a deadly double bill… VENOM INC & EXCITER!!!

After a testing yet triumphant 2019, Hardline are pleased to announce the return of VENOM INC in 2021, and welcome, for their first time in Australia – EXCITER!!!

CANBERRA, SYDNEY, BRISBANE, MELBOURNE and ADELAIDE – GET READY – VENOM INC & EXCITER are coming at ya in NOVEMBER, 2021!

TICKETS ON SALE NOW: WWW.HARDLINEMEDIA.NET – Limited VIP Meet & greet packages available.

Having left Australia wanting more the last time they were here, VENOM INC are set to pack it out down under yet again!
Formed as Venom in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. And coming to prominence towards the end of the New Wave of British heavy metal, Venom’s first two albums ‘Welcome to Hell’ (1981) and ‘Black Metal’ (1982)—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general.

Venom’s second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of an extreme Metal sub-genre: Black Metal.

During the 80’s, Venom were THE extreme band, releasing more classic albums such as ‘At War With Satan’ (1984), ‘Possessed’ (1985) and countless classic, live albums, such as the ‘Assault Live’ album series and the legendary ‘Eine Kleine Nachtmusik’ (1986) Double LP and the ‘The Seventh Date of Hell: Live At Hammersmith Odeon’ Video which helped launch Metallica, who were the support band for Venom’s tour.

Following Cronos’ departure from the band, Tony Dolan (The Demolition Man) from Atomkraft, stepped in filling Cronos’ big, red boots, most admirably. And recording four releases with Venom: ‘Prime Evil’ (1989), ‘Tear Your Soul Apart’ (1990), ‘Temples of Ice’ (1991), and ‘The Waste Lands’ (1992).

Hardline are looking forward to welcoming Venom Inc back after their highly successful Avé Australis Tour in 2018, and the infamously killer, one-off Venom Inc Frankie’s appearance, in December 2019. Don’t miss out on the band, full throttle, in 2021!

FOR THEIR FIRST TIME IN AUSTRALIA – EXCITER ARE HEADING DOWN UNDER!!!
LONG LIVE THE LOUD!!!

Exciter are coming! Hailing from Ottawa Canada, and formed in 1978, Australia finally gets a dose of Speed/Thrash Metal demons Exciter!

Named after the Judas Priest song, Exciter are considered to be one of the originals of the Speed and Thrash Metal genres. In 1983 they released their first album, ‘Heavy Metal Maniac’, on Shrapnel Records. Later that year, they signed a deal with Jon Zazula’s Megaforce Records, which led to the 1984 release of their second album ‘Violence and Force’. This material was toured on bills opening for Anthrax and Mercyful Fate. History would bring many more revered releases by the band, such as ‘Long Live the Loud’ (1985), and ‘Unveiling the Wicked’ (1986), to name just a couple. More tours also followed, with bands like Accept, Manowar, Motörhead and Megadeth.

It is with much anticipation, that we finally welcome Exciter to Aussie shores!
Don’t miss your chance to witness this epic double bill live in November, 2021!!!
