And to think they told us not to expect (quite) as much as last time.

The Soundwave 2014 lineup has dropped, and it’s a treat. A rejuvenated Green Day will headline the tour in February and March next year, joined by Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Temple Pilots (with Chester Bennington). Alice In Chains, Placebo, Megadeth, DevilDriver and Korn are there as well, on a list of 50 acts in the first announcement with more to come. The Sydney event happens at Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday February 23. You done good, Soundwave – you done good.
