After returning from their third trip to Europe where they toured with German metal titans Rage and Greek power metal icons Firewind, Darker Half are taking a break from recording their new album to tour the east coast of Australia in May & June. Determined to not only visit capital cities Darker Half are bringing the “Are You Ready?” Tour to regional centres along the east coast & they’re bringing their Melbourne based drinking buddies Mason* along for the ride. The set list will include songs they have not yet played live in Australia as well as giving fans a chance to hear some new material from their upcoming album. So the question is… Are You Ready?

They have performed throughout Australia and New Zealand, have toured the USA and in 2016 completed two tours of Europe, the second as special guests of German heavy metal stalwarts Rage. In January 2018 they once again joined Rage on their European tour, this time also featuring Firewind. With a 4th album now being recorded Darker Half are keen to hit the stage and play some Metal. MASON Based in Melbourne, Australia, the thrash metal group known as Mason deliver commanding performances in both the domestic and international metal scene. Drawing influences from The Big Four and The Bay Area sound, Mason encapsulates 80's thrash comprised with fast tempos, technical aggression and a dominating rhythm section. The band continues to crush audiences across the globe with their driving force and energetic stage presence, stimulating a growing, loyal fan base.
