When: Wednesday February 18, 2004

AFTER a three-year stint away from the music scene, Gold Coast four-piece SUNK LOTO has made the champion of all comebacks.

After the release of its second album Between Birth and Death in November 2003, the band has stormed back into the Australian live scene.

As well as joining the LIVID festival and completing a successful headline tour, Sunk Loto supported US metal heavyweights KORN during three shows earlier this month.

With its sights firmly focused on the live circuit, Sunk Loto will headline the OVER 17s BALL at the UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE tonight.

The show is expected to be another warm welcome back for the band following a huge show at the CAMBRIDGE HOTEL in November.

Frontman JASON BROWN said the band was relieved to finally be out on the road after eagerly anticipating the release of the new album.

``It just took us a while . th. th.

we kept coming up with demos and they weren't good enough,'' Brown said.

``We just knew we could do better.'' Critics have given the album glowing reviews, including one from leading rock magazine KERRANG! which described the album as ``arguably the best Australian metal album of the year, if not the past 10''.

Spelling a new musical maturity for the band, Brown agreed that the album was a step up from the debut album Big Picture Lies. ``This album is definitely so far ahead of the last release it's on a whole new level it's a lot heavier and a lot harder so we're very happy with it.'' Sunk Loto's latest single Starved written after a friend died from a drug overdose is out now.

Sunk Loto will be supported by the new-look CHINCHEN and DJ PUCKO. Tickets are available on campus from CONTACT.
