Description

Metal pioneers Frontierer are finally on the cusp of their first tour of Australia.
Known and loved around the world as a creatively unique sonic mass of seething intent, Frontierer have left a wake of destruction in their path since forming just over a decade ago, infusing elements of mathcore with downtuned aggression and a progressive sound layered with a wall of electronics that defies belief.
With the Australian tour kicking off in Brisbane on October 13, HEAVY caught up with founding member and guitarist Pendram Valiani to get the lowdown on what to expect.
"Just madness, nothing but madness," he smiled. "It's gonna be great. We're looking forward to seeing what the crowds are like compared to our European collegues and our UK fans. Some chaos, some fun, some friendliness and a hell of a good time."
While coming to a country like Australia for the first time can be daunting for a tourist, let alone a touring musician, Valiani admits he doesn't really have a whole lot to work with when it comes to asking advice.
"I don't personally know many people who have been to Australia," he shrugged. "So I don't have a lot of anecdotal stories or anything to let me know what it's gonna be like, so I'm going in with a bit of a surprise element. There's been a lot of planning for this to make this tour happen and leaving some elements as a surprise means we are going to be able to discover things without bias and we're looking forward to it."
In the full interview, Pendram tells us what to expect from Frontierer's live shows, the tight schedule and life on the road, bringing Apate with them and why, the early days of the band, their label as a mathcore band and more.
