Who: Daysend, Stronger Than Hate
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Friday October 15, 2004

WHEN four of Australia's premier metal bands decided to call it quits, it spelt the birth of one of of Australia's best new acts.

DAYSEND was formed in early 2003 and comprises former members of high-calibre metal bands PSI.KORE, DEADSPAWN, REDSANDS and AUTOMATION. Former Automation guitarist MICHAEL KORDEK said he had achieved more with Daysend in the past 18 months than he had with any other band.

Less than six months after it formed, Daysend was in the studio laying down tracks for its critically acclaimed debut album Severance. ``Things have moved really fast for us,'' Kordek said.

``We probably did more in a month of Daysend than we had ever done in 10 years with any other band.

``I guess we thought we'd step on the accelerator a bit.'' Daysend spent a large part of last year touring the country with the likes of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, SKINLAB, THE HAUNTED and JERK. Although gigs had been less frequent this year, Kordek said the band had performed with more international acts such as MACHINE HEAD and ENTOMBED. Time away from the road had allowed the band the time it needed to work on material for the follow up to Severance , which was named Australian Metal Album of the Year by TRIPLE J listeners.

Kordek said the band would preview a couple of new tracks during its current tour, which began in Adelaide earlier this month and would arrive at the CAMBRIDGE HOTEL on Friday night.

Support on Friday night will be from STRONGER THAN HATE.
