One of the best things about Melbourne’s Download Festival is that we’ll be seeing some great Australian talent on the bill! One of those bands is among Tasmania’s most brutal offerings, the mighty Psycroptic! Though hailing from one of the most far-flung areas on the planet, Psycroptic are a truly world-class offering, having toured the world with Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Decapitated and more!

WHO ARE PSYCROPTIC?

Jason Peppiatt – Vocals
Cameron Grant – Bass
Joe Haley – Guitars
Dave Haley – Drums

Psycroptic have released a whopping six albums, with the latest being their self-titled LP from 2015. Not only do they have a solid back catalogue, but they’re also prolific live, with a face-melting and pit-destroying set that will tear Flemington Racecourse apart! Though one of Australia’s heaviest bands, they also have a charitable streak, as the first band in the world to adopt their very own Tasmanian devil – appropriately named Psycro. All proceeds from the single ‘Echoes to Come’ went to helping save these critters from extinction. Make sure you see these guys showing the internationals what we’re made of!

YOU CAN CATCH PSYCROPTIC ON MARCH 24TH AT FLEMINGTON RACECOURSE IN MELBOURNE AS PART OF DOWNLOAD MELBOURNE.
