10 years of underground sounds

10 years heathen skulls tours

Heathen Skulls was an early pioneer of underground music touring in Australia and New Zealand,  a company created out of pure necessity in 2006, at a time when very few Australian promoters were willing to take a risk on underground heavy & alternative artists.

Being fans of all things dark & heavy, Heathen Skulls set focus on bringing out artists they wanted to see that had never before had the opportunity to tour in Australia like Pig destroyer, Earthless, Chelsea Wolfe, Russian Circles, Beastwars, Earth, Saint Vitus, Black Cobra, Windhand, Radio Moscow.

Taking the road less travelled, Heathen Skulls accepted the challenge of working with a lot of lesser known bands from the heavy rock & metal sub-genres to give punters the chance to hear something outside of their comfortable bubble….

…. but 10 years of touring does take a toll, with the ever rising costs of touring in a very volatile marketplace it has been necessary for Health Skulls to take a step back and work on other projects for a while. Although it’s been a blast, and the words of support are appreciated it’s time to finally close off this chapter.

So thanks for memories!
