Coal Chamber have announced that they will be reforming for an Australian tour.

The band, who enjoyed success at the height of the nu metal boom, released three albums in a nine year career, before splitting in 2003.

The band will tour Australia as part of the Soundwave Festival, but have not as yet indicated if they will play more shows or record any new material.

Frontman Dez Fafara, who now fronts the band Devildriver said of the shows: "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!"

The singer added that the "issues" that caused the band's split had been put him them, but did not commit to playing any shows outside Australia with the band.

He added:

We've all grown up and put the personal past behind us now and are moving forward with these few shows in a spirit of friendship through music. You must remember where you came from in order to know where you are going.
