Behold metalheads… Life Is Noise have announced the handpicked local support acts for the upcoming Ufomammut and Monolord double headliner tour through New Zealand and Australia this October.
In Wellington on October 3 at the San Fran, the building and atmospheric doom sounds of Spook the Horses will leave you breathless as the main support. On first is Earth Tongue, who feature members of Red Sky Blues and Mermaidens.
Arc of Ascent will take you down a psychedelic spiral, tinged with stoner and doom ties, ahead of the headliners on October 4 in Auckland at the Kings Arms. Kicking the night into gear will be three-piece instrumental stoner-infused titans, Reaving.
Brisbane’s Crowbar will play host on October 6 to the raucous and groovy rhythms of main support Hobo Magic. But get there early to get smashed in the face by ZONG, a transcendental trio that combine heavy and experimental psych with pummelling riffs.
On October 7 at the Bald Faced Stag in Sydney, Comacozer will take you further down the heavy psyche spiral—infusing space doom with sludge origins. And the trance-like state will continue with openers DAWN initiating all to their coven.
Max Watt’s in Melbourne will be annihilated on October 8 when YLVA—one of the most heavy and genre-bending musical acts of late—serve as main support. Psyche-drenched locals Merchant and one-woman devastating noise machine, Bonnie Mercer, will start this huge event.
Wrapping up this gigantic tour in Perth on October 9 at the Rosemount Hotel, national ‘post-everything’ favourites Tangled Thoughts Of Leaving and soul-destroying doomers Dirac Sea will be returning for one show only before they lock themselves away in the studio to record.
