Hot on the heels of smashing venues around Australia with The Amity Affliction, Perth metal outfit Make Them Suffer have announced the Aussie leg of their Worlds Apart world tour. The band will be supporting their brand new album, due to hit stores on July 28 through Roadrunner Records.
Make Them Suffer have had the pedal to the metal since the release of their last album, Old Souls, in 2015. The band has toured relentlessly both at home and abroad with artists including Parkway Drive, Architects, In Hearts Wake, August Burns Red and Whitechapel, everywhere from Indonesia to Poland and in between. They found the time to get back in the studio to create Ether, a slab of churning, ethereal noise that’s about to crack 3 million streams as well as landing the band strong radio support, all the while pushing and pulling the limits of their writing behind the scenes to make something new.
To round out the bill, Make Them Suffer are bringing along American heavy hitters Wage War, whose new record Deadweight will arrive August 4 via Fearless Records after spending the last 2 years touring with Every Time I Die, A Day To Remember and I Prevail, and Melbourne maniacs Alpha Wolf, who are dropping Mono July 14 through Greyscale Records.
“Worlds Apart represents a new era for the band,” explains frontman Sean Harmanis. “It’s the risks in songwriting and production taken in the past that lead us to this point. The album is a reminder to ourselves that change and growth are good things, as both have been integral to the success of this band and its identity. It’s tough to say so early, but I think Worlds Apart is an album that will be in your stereo for quite some time. It’s been such a crazy ride to think back to practicing our songs on mums kitchen floor. Members have come and gone, sacrifices have been made and we’ve quite seriously thought about throwing in the towel so many times. Our debut album Neverbloom gave us an extremely loyal following that saw us through an immense three-year gap between albums. Old Souls saw the beginning of this band and it’s music starting to try new things, it also took the band out of Australia. I think with Worlds Apart we are now demonstrating our collective vision and what we’re capable of.”
