Australian-based industrial synth outfit Schkeuditzer Kreuz, alias Kieren Hills, has today announced dates for a first tour of Japan, between August and September 2024.

Kieren says: “I’ve been to Japan three times with other bands, and every time I have always been totally blown away by the bands I’ve seen or played with. Every show – whether a death metal fest or a small bar full of chaos – has featured incredible and inventive bands, from beginning to end. That’s what I want to throw myself into – to get in there and amongst it all and make my music. I want to delve into the noise scene, into the grind, into the experimental and electronic, and just take it all in, to experience what is happening there. I want to fill myself with everything that Japan has to offer in the world of extreme music.”

The announcement follows Schkeuditzer Kreuz’s most recent single and video, “Ratchet” which was released in April 2024, and a string of Australian tourdates.

Following the completion of the tour to Japan, Schkeuditzer Kreuz returns to the studio in late 2024 to record their third album.

Below are the concert dates.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
