Photo Gallery and Live Review: Killer Be Killed - Soundwave Festival, Brisbane (28.02.15)

Despite being a massive fan of the sum of the parts in Killer Be Killed (aka The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and The Mars Volta's Dave Elitch) it was one of those things that kind of passed me by - thinking that it would be the standard side project-slash-supergroup that always tends to be more of a ego-boost than anything really resulting in anything worth listening to.

Fucked Up are one of those special experiences - one of those perfect festival bands, with the dedicated fanbase turning out wherever they pop up, and the absolutely amazing performance that will draw in any curious bystanders and immediately convert them.
