Year Formed


Karnivool is a band that defies conventions, their hands on approach with all facets of their career creates the need for them to work to their own schedule. Most of the time since Karnivool's last Australian jaunt (in June & July 2012) has been spent with various members taking a little bit of time off the road, or on the road with other projects, as well as tinkering around in their rehearsal studio in Perth putting the bits and pieces of Karnivool's 3rd album together. The global success of 'Sound Awake' meant nearly three years of touring internationally, so it was time for a little breather. Of course there were a few things thrown in to keep the band busy, including a flying 4 festivals in 4 days tour of Europe which culminated in Karnivool playing to 8000 screaming Dutch fans at Lowlands festival in The Netherlands. Karnivool also took the time at the end of 2011 to travel to Mumbai to headline Mood Indigo festival, which will surely remain as one of the most memorable shows they have played to date. Having 10,000 Indian fans in an arena singing along to New Day in a shower of confetti will not be forgotten for some time! Hopefully there will be a taste of that on the forthcoming Karnivool DVD, which has now had all shooting completed and is being edited as we speak, with a confirmed release sometime 2012.
