Download 2011 warm up show on June 8, 2011

MALEFICE, are currently readying to unveil Awaken The Tides, the third full-length from one of the most exciting modern metal acts to come out of the U.K.

Set for release in Europe on July 15, the UK July 18 and North American on August 2 via Metal Blade Records, the 10-track long player was recorded at The Face studios in Reading with drums laid down at Fortress Studios in London. All tracks were mixed and mastered by Justin Hill.

Frontman Dale Butler comments: “And so the time has finally come, we’ve been locked away for 6 months working on this record, a release that’s going to take your fucking head off. We promised something different, a bigger production, and a slightly different look on the genre. We’ve found our sound and it’s going to bring a whole new level to our live show, something we all felt was missing. We’ve come back a new band, confidant and more of a unit than we’ve ever been. This is our next step; make sure you’re around to see it!”

Awaken The Tides Track Listing:
1. Awaken The Tides
2. Delirium
3. Dead in the Water
4. Minutes
5. Baying For Blood
6. Blessed/Cursed
7. The Day the Sky Fell

Filed under: Rock Music News — Tags: , , , , , , — Journalist @ 12:16 pm


Dr Lester Grinspoon, Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School has much to answer for, as it was he who first highlighted the positive medicinal uses of Marijuana. He also lent his expert knowledge during the trial on the deportation of a certain Mr John Lennon, and latterly, on the naming of Australia’s foremost rock band, GRINSPOON.


GLOBAL MUSIC are proud to announce the official, full-European release of the album, ‘SIX TO MIDNIGHT’, from multi-platinum-selling, Australian rock-group GRINSPOON. The record will be available from July 4th 2011 via DR2 Records.


‘SIX TO MIDNIGHT’, has already gone GOLD in Australia, and this special European version will feature five additional bonus tracks, including a reworking of their classic anthem ‘Champion’, produced by Rick Will (Incubus / Skindred).



  1. Dogs
  2. Run
  3. Comeback
  4. Takes One
  5. Premonitions
  6. Right Now
  7. Give You More
  8. Lockdown
  9. Tonight
  10. Passenger
  11. Innocence
  12. Surrender
  13. Summer


  1. Progress (Bonus Track)
  2. Tourist Season (Bonus Track)
  3. Strange Days (Bonus Track)
  4. 60 Sign (Bonus Track)
  5. Champion (Rick Will Mix)


As well as recently completing a successful UK tour with TWO sell-out London shows, GRINSPOON were also invited as special guests on Stone Temple Pilots’ first ever Australian arena tour back in March 2011. Other past stadium supports include Creed, Lit, Godsmack and Anthrax, as well as an epic appearance at the closing ceremony of Australia’s 2006 Common Wealth Games in Melbourne.

GRINSPOON are a band who have been through all the thrills and addictions of a rock group; sixteen years together, and still performing every show like it’s their last on earth, with their collective experiences lending to the writing of some amazingly heartfelt music.

The Gloom EP cover features new artwork from Ruination artist Brent Elliott White <> .

Listen to Gloom now HERE <> .

Commented vocalist Jonny Davy: “It honestly feels like it’s been quite awhile since we’ve released any new material to the public. With that said, we’re all pretty amped up to release this new EP and to play these new songs live. I’m aware that it’s stereotypical to claim that it’s a step forward for the band, but fuck it, it is. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
