Justice For The Damned - Dragged Through The Dirt
This is the year we well and truly fell for Cursed Earth. In a big way. So naturally we wanted to grab one final chat with vocalist Jazmine before we dig into our Chrimbo dinners, to find out what’s soundtracked her year. She was kind enough to oblige, after she caught her breath and looked back at what’s been a whirlwind 12 months.
“2017 was easily our biggest to date. There was The Cycles Of Grief, our first few headline runs with Statues and Shackles respectively, a sold out tour with Thy Art Is Murder, Europe and the UK with Make Them Suffer, a stack of sold out local shows and our last East Coast date being our first sold out headline Melbourne show really topped off 2017.”
Quite the list of achievements. Fair play. Not that it’s been done without taking some toll too.
“It wasn’t without its aches and pains! Two of us and our manager went to hospital after catching the flu on the Thy Art Is Murder run and I dislocated my shoulder after we narrowly avoided a massive car accident in Europe.”
This is just the beginning though. Next year is theirs.
“Nobody is ready for the 2018 we have planned,” she promises. “We’ll be starting it off with the sold out Unify festival and following up with the massive Download Australia. Oh, and we’ve just started tracking our best music yet. Brace yourselves…”
Consider us braced, Jaz.
