Nu-metal heroes Coal Chamber are to reform for live shows in 2012.
The band are reforming in order to play at next year’s Soundwave Festival in Australia.
In their lifetime as an active band, Coal Chamber never visited Australia. Frontman Dez Fafara says: “These reunion shows are for the fans that want to see us again as well as all the people that never got to see Coal Chamber. It is and always will be a very special part of my life, so these few shows are for those people and for us. If you’re not from Australia, better get a ticket now to come see this event!”
There are currently no plans to play live shows anywhere in the northern hemisphere.
Coal Chamber broke up in 2003. After the split, Fafara formed metal band DevilDriver. Second bassist Nadja Peulen is currently working on material with her band Vera Mesmer.
