Praxis definition: the process of using a theory or something that you have learned in a practical way.

Karnivool was a sleeping giant in 2018, but the beast stirred in January of this year with a short run of dates in WA and SA leading into a headlining slot at the Unify Gathering festival in regional VIC. This jaunt was so well received (all shows sold out) and more importantly so much damn fun for the band that it only seems fair that they should visit the rest of Australia and remind their fans how unique the atmosphere is in the temple of Vool – the band were a little overwhelmed by how many messages they got from other cities in Australia asking for a visit – it had been awhile!

Previously announced festival appearances at Bassinthegrass in Darwin and the Big Pineapple in the Sunshine Coast will be now fleshed out with a headline tour hitting most capital cities the band weren’t able to visit in January. 

Karnivool are also very excited and honoured to have “the remotest metal band in the world” Southeast Desert Metal join them from Alice Springs on The Praxis Tour.

It’s been too long, but let us put that well received theory into a practical setting. See you in May and June.
