Formed in Sydney, five-piece band Northlane took shape in 2009 and quickly flourished into one of the most successful Australian heavy exports today.
Northlane released their fourth studio album, Mesmer, on March 24, 2017 with no forewarning and completely blindsided fans and the industry alike. Mesmer was received with a raft of acclaim and labelled ‘triumphant’ and a ‘masterpiece’ by critics. The album debuted at #3 on the ARIA Chart and received an ARIA Award nomination for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album.
Northlane’s journey started with their debut Hollow Existence, released in 2009. Their first album Discoveries was released on 11/11/11.
In 2013, Northlane released their second album, Singularity. The album was a critical and commercial success, receiving universal acclaim upon its release. Singularity landed Northlane their first ARIA Award nomination for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album and launched the band worldwide, touring extensively in Europe, North America and Australia/New Zealand.
Released in July 2015, the band’s third album, Node, debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart and won the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album. Node scored the coveted feature album on triple j, a guest host spot on iconic ABC television program Rage and two Blunt Magazine covers. Alternative Press nominated Northlane for the ‘Best New Band’ award at the 2015 APMAs and they earned a second Metal Hammer Golden Gods ‘Best Music Video’ nomination for first single Rot.
