Earthless Elder USA Aus Tour Dates

Filed under: rock music, CD Launches, Gigs, Tours — site admin @ 3:01 pm

LIFE IS NOISE is proud to announce the local supports for next month’s massive Earthless & Elder tour.

Kicking off the first night of the tour at the Rosemount Hotel in Perth on October 22 will be PUCK. Fresh off a national tour in support of their riffgasmic single “Take the Day”, Puck are cut from the same cloth as venerable stoner rock trailblazers as Kyuss, balancing muscular riffs and bombast with nuanced songwriting, explosive crescendos and irresistible melodies. This is the kind of band you’ll be able to see on the small stage for only so long.

Perth – The Rosemount Hotel – October 22, 2015
*Selling Fast - Melbourne –The Corner – October 23, 2015
*Almost Sold Out - Sydney – Newtown Social – October 24, 2015
Sydney - Hermann’s Bar - October 25, 2015
Brisbane – Crowbar – October 26, 2015

At The Corner in Melbourne on Friday October 23, you can start your night with an exclamation courtesy of XXXX THE FITZROY DOOM SCENE. Still riding the wave of their debut LP, Face the Ruin, FTFDS sound exactly like you’d expect them to with a name like theirs: brash and unapologetic, with riffs like wrecking balls. Rest assured, these guys are fucking loud.

At the first Sydney show at the Newtown Social Club on October 24, support comes from cataclysmic post-metal quartet HAWKMOTH. This is the kind of band that demands your attention, with songs that sound like a sinkhole and crescendos that hit like a cataclysm, channeling the best parts of Isis, Mastodon and Pelican. Brace yourself.

At the second Sydney Show at Hermann’s Bar on October 25, immerse yourself in the fuzz-filled psychedelia of stoner trio AVER. These are the sweet leaf sounds at their most refined, with chunky rhythms balanced with meditative melodies steeped in nuance. Journey through the smoke.

Opening the final show of the tour at Crowbar in Brisbane is one of our favourite bands from Queensland: HOBO MAGIC. Showing reverence to the same guitar gods that inspired Earthless and Elder – Iommi, Hendrix, Page, you name it – Hobo Magic are everything you want a rock power trio to be: sophisticated songwriters, awe-inspiring instrumentalists and catchy as all hell. Try to resist the groove – we dare you.

Earthless want you to know how it feels to touch the sky. With smoldering guitar riffs that stretch from here to infinity, the San Diego trio are at once cosmic and timeless, rooted in a profound respect for the Zeppelin/Sabbathian tradition yet with eyes firmly cast forward. Never mind the retro rock revivalists or the ’70s throwbacks – Earthless aren’t nostalgists; they’re sonic luminaries dragging psychadelia by the wah pedal into the 21st century and beyond.

Earthless got it right from conception – ride the riff until it becomes a black hole. – Austin Chronicle

Isaiah Mitchell is the kind of guitar prodigy that comes along only once in a generation. Underpinned by the military precision of Mario Rubalcaba’s drumming and Mike Eginton’s fundamental grooves, Mitchell’s chaotic fretwork is as unpredictable as it is ambitious.

Earthless don’t leave room for misinterpretation or error concerning their mission: They are a long-winded guitar trio, hell-bent on riding six electric strings directly out of this atmosphere. – Pitchfork

Earthless’ live show is a trip: you don’t know where you’re going, but you’re damn sure you better stay along for the ride.

Isaiah Mitchell’s guitar playing is a constant surprise, soaring, diving, streaking through the sky like a hawk playing in the updrafts along the face of a cliff. – Pop Matters

Elder are a sleeper cell of colossal talent. Never has three-piece so seamlessly merged the atmosphere of doom with the depth of stoner rock and the vitality of psychedelic rock. Their latest album, Lore, is a quiet masterpiece – a blizzard of riffs that shine with melody, dynamism and songwriting sophistication well beyond the young band’s years.

Elder have only just begun writing their own lore as a band, but with Lore, they have created an album that is, in a word, timeless. – Heavy Blog is Heavy

Few bands have the gall to cover Jimi Hendrix, and even fewer can do it well, but Elder did just that in June when they released a rip-roaring cover of Voodoo Child (Slight Return) for the Hendrix tribute Electric Ladyland Redux. Nick DeSalvo’s guitar sounds on the brink of bursting into flames as he blazes through solo after solo.

Like Sleep or Earthless — two bands who provide similar thrills using similar tools — Elder are a trio, and each member is a fucking giant. – Stereogum

Elder’s sonic mastery extends beyond the studio – the trio’s live documents and show-stealing sets at Roadburn and Psycho California are a testament to Elder’s limitless potential.

Elder and Earthless have never shared a stage before. There’s no telling what havoc these two riff lords will wreak. Don’t miss the psych trip of the year. Witness these two blow minds on the following dates:

Perth – The Rosemount Hotel – October 22, 2015
*Selling Fast - Melbourne –The Corner – October 23, 2015
*Almost Sold Out - Sydney – Newtown Social – October 24, 2015
Sydney - Hermann’s Bar - October 25, 2015
Brisbane – Crowbar – October 26, 2015
