Pendulum Set To Play Australia & New Zealand Arena Shows In 2023.

MG Live and Frontier Touring have exciting news for electronic music fans as they announce the return of the iconic band, Pendulum, for five massive arena headline shows in Australia and New Zealand this October!

With the promise of new music on the horizon and three Platinum albums to their name, including the renowned debut “Hold Your Colour” in 2005, and chart-toppers “Immersion” (2010) and “In Silico” (2008), Pendulum has solidified their position as one of Australia’s most successful musical exports. Comprising Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillien, Peredur ap Gwynedd, and KJ Sawka, the drum and bass/rock band has sold over a million albums in the UK alone. Their latest single, “Halo,” featuring Matt Tuck from Bullet For My Valentine, marks their first new material in over two years.

As a live act, Pendulum is unstoppable, with award-winning performances that sell out global arena tours and captivate thousands at main stage festival appearances like Glastonbury, Creamfields, Coachella, Rock Am Ring, and Reading and Leeds. They recently headlined Ultra Miami to great acclaim. Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale on Monday, August 7, via frontiertouring.com/pendulum.

Pendulum has more new music in store for 2023, with frontman Rob Swire describing “Halo” as music that “sounds like the apocalypse” – a signature element of Pendulum’s unique sound.

Since their debut album “Hold Your Colour” in 2005, Pendulum‘s blend of high-tempo productions and energetic live performances made them an instant sensation. By 2008, “In Silico” solidified their status as one of electronic music’s biggest live acts. “Immersion” in 2010 became their most significant album release to date. After a hiatus, Rob and Gareth formed Knife Party, another successful project, before deciding to make their live return as Pendulum. In August, they will perform alongside nu-metal legends Limp Bizkit at a highly anticipated event in London’s Gunnersbury Park.

Joining Pendulum for all dates is fellow Perth-bred drum and bass legend ShockOne, aka Karl Thomas. ShockOne, known for hits like “Polygon,” has been a prominent name in Australia’s dance scene since the release of The ShockOne EP in 2009. After a successful European and US tour, he returns with the latest track “Heart On Fire,” featuring Pauline Kerr.

Get ready for Pendulum‘s monumental return to Australia and New Zealand this Spring, as they bring their stunning live show to enthusiastic fans. These influential dance acts promise incredible performances, so secure your tickets now to avoid disappointment!
