Karnivool have offered fans an exhilarating sneak peek at their upcoming The Decade of Sound Awake livestream event, which will be beamed into living rooms worldwide next week. Up close and in full high definition, the band have shared footage of Goliath – the pummelling live favourite and second track from Sound Awake.
The Decade of Sound Awake event is a one-time livestream that will see the band perform their seminal, platinum selling second album Sound Awake in its entirety at the Heath Ledger Theatre in their home city of Perth, Western Australia. They will also perform new material and, captured on film properly for the first time, the fan favourite Fade.
Originally planned as a short Australian tour in early 2020, The Decade of Sound Awake was rescheduled (twice!) in an attempt to make the tour happen normally, safely and in the way the band had envisioned but that was not possible with what’s going on in the world. All gigs on the East Coast of Australia were cancelled. Amidst the enormous disappointment, the West Coast Fremantle shows were allowed to proceed and those EPIC nights made firm the resolve to deliver an equally monumental performance for the world to see.
“Diving back into Sound Awake as a complete performance was a sweet reminder of the layers and complexity that make it one of our most important releases.” says frontman Ian Kenny “The music pushes and pulls in complex directions, I continue to find something new when lost in its emotional turbulence.”
Singled out for its incredible contemporary design and unique acoustic properties, The Heath Ledger Theatre, designed by Australian architect & AIA Gold Medal winner Kerry Hill, is named in honour of the actor. The theatre sits in the CBD of Perth, the remotest city on earth and is far more accustomed to ballet, theatre and orchestra recitals – this beautiful room has not seen or heard the likes of Karnivool! The visually stunning performance was directed by Matt Sav, mixed by frequent Karnivool collaborator Jan Kerscher and brought to you by the streaming service behind the incredible Nick Cave Idiot Prayer performance.
In order to accommodate our fans all over the world, this livestream event will be broadcast across multiple time-zones. There are no restrictions on which stream you can watch so please choose the most convenient time slot for you.
