Devil You Know Hope To Crowdfund Soundwave Replacement

(TeamRock Radio) Devil You Know drummer John Sankey has launched a bid to replace the cancelled Soundwave touring festival of Australia. The 2016 edition was called off by organizer AJ Maddah after he reported poor ticket sales. He'd already said the 2017 event wouldn't take place.

Responsibility for refunds is in dispute, with Maddah saying seller Eventopia should cover repayments, while they say the opposite. Now Australian Sankey has revealed plans for a festival to be called Legion. He tells TheMusic: "I've been mates with AJ for a really long time. We were devastated to hear the news.

"He did such an awesome job, and turned into one of the last places Aussies could hear great international and local metal bands." He adds: "We were planning on coming to Australia - so why not round up the guys and figure out a way to come anyway?" Read more here.
