The 50 best albums of 2022
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2022.
Support on the December shows comes from Casey, Vukovi and Boston Manor.
Australian metalcore crew The Amity Affliction are the headliners for December’s Kerrang! Tour – and the Queensland four-piece have some pretty sweet support hitting the road with them.
The Kerrang! Tour is no stranger to putting awesome acts on the same bill – now on its 12th(!) run, past jaunts have seen the likes of Biffy Clyro and Bring Me The Horizon setting out under the K! banner.
December’s run is no different. The Amity Affliction – whose Roadrunner-released 2016 LP This Could Be Heartbreak topped their domestic Australian chart – will be headlining above three equally amazing outfits. And we can’t wait for you to enjoy all four of ‘em.
Opening is Welsh post-hardcore crew Casey. They’ll be followed by high-energy Scottish rockers Vukovi. And completing the bill is Blackpool’s ferocious five-piece Boston Manor.
Because we’re nice, here’s a little taste of all four acts for your eyes and ears.
