Updates for Zildjian Artists Andy Strachan, Ryan Caesar, and Rob Nassiff

Zildjian Australian news - The Living end

Andy Strachan and THE LIVING END have announced a very special one off show! Yes, this is the last time you will see the band before they emerge from the studio brandishing their new album in hand.

The Living End will be headlining the concert performance at the 2011 Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix! The band dropped by Triple M to announce their performance at the race last week, check out the video of that here. It seems that organisers are quite thrilled, having sent us photos of The Living End's very own F1 cars!

It all goes down in Melbourne on Sunday March 27th, so check out all details here:

Finally, it's true - in the next week or two The Living End will commence recording for their sixth album. The band are heading into the studio with American producer Nick DiDia. Nick has worked with the likes of Rage Against the Machine, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Powderfinger - so watch out!

We'll see if we can squirrel away some pieces of information from the studio to keep you updated.

Children Collide

Ryan Cesaer and CHILDREN COLLIDE have been bringing some very good times to the Essential Stage on the national Big Day Out tour over the past couple of weeks. The band’s live set has reached a real high point, with a mixture of sing-a-long favourites and dynamic crowd pleasers sending BDO crows into a frenzy. The Essential Stage was packed to critical mass in all cities, rammed with sweaty but very excited listeners. Check out some Big Day Out praise right here on Fasterlouder.

New single “Arrows from the Theory of Everything album was serviced to radio last month and went down a treat at the Big Day Out, inspiring squeals of delight and many a sing-a-long. The intriguing new video for “Arrows has just hit TV screens and the interwebs, watch it in all its mystery right here.

If you're dying to hear some of this live goodness for yourself, triple j captured Children Collide's Falls Festival set in Lorne in all its glory. It aired Live at the Wireless last night, but you can catch the stream at the triple j website as we speak. OR - watch this jaw-dropping video from the Adelaide Big Day Out here, simply awesome stuff!

Speaking of triple j - Children Collide scored in the Hottest 100. Not only did crunching single “My Eagle place at a pleasing #60 in the list, unlikely hit “Jellylegs peaked at a very unexpected #22! Many thanks to all who helped Children Collide secure their best Hottest 100 result ever.

We have some good news for those devoted disciples of Children Collide's live show coming your way in the next little while, so hold your breath.

Rob Nassiff and GYROSCOPE have also been proving their rock chops time and time again on the national Big Day Out tour. Their mid-afternoon set time has seen hot crowds, but even hotter performances from the band.

Australia Day brought the fantastic news that Gyroscope had placed at a huge #40 in triple j's Hottest 100 with their infectious “Baby, I'm Gettin' Better track. This song really outdid itself last year, aside from the single going gold, it skyrocketed to the forth most played Australian track on Australian radio in 2010. Huge!

Even before Gyroscope disembarked from the Big Day Out train, the annual and ever growing Groovin' the Moo Festival announced that Gyroscope will be joining its illustrious line-up for 2011. It's massive, check out the full line-up and all ticketing details at:

There are plenty more shows where that came from, including some fast approaching Victorian headline shows, so hit up for everything you need to know in the land of Gyro.
