Michael Crafter’s history in the Aussie metalcore scene stretches back to 2002 with infamous outfit I Killed The Prom Queen, which exploded overseas. Following IKTPQ, Crafter had stints with Carpathian, Bury Your Dead and of course Confession. Crafter owns Against The Grain tattoo studios, barber shops and coffee spots in WA, and is a public advocate for health and social issues like men’s mental health issues, with depression, cancer and suicide.
As such, Crafter is doing his bit once again and has announced the When Goodbye Means Life And Death tour; with references to two albums; IKTPQ‘s debut 2003 record When Goodbye Means Forever and Confession‘s 2014 record Life & Death.
Whilst the tour is an opportunity for Crafter to get back on stage with Confession and get you moving, he’s embarking on the tour to honour his late friend and IKTPQ bandmate, Sean Kennedy who the metalcore community truly miss.
The two shows will be in NSW, one in Newcastle and Sydney, at the end of September and start of October respectively. No word yet on whether there’ll be more shows across the country, but we’ll keep you posted.
