PAPA M TAKES THE UPRIGHT PATH TO THE LAND OF OZ!

PAPA M TAKES THE UPRIGHT PATH TO THE LAND OF OZ!

M-Heads down under and it’s your time to salivate, cause this lovingly creepin’ darkness will soon descend upon you.
Papa M will spend two weeks in Australia playing Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Papa M creates mood music both instrumental and vocal. The M-leader, David Pajo, is a caretaker of the darkest feelings found underneath the six strings of a guitar, acoustic or electric (he does both, yo). Most recently, this beautiful and occasionally frightening sound manifested as A Broke Moon Rises, an acoustic record of music without words that is meditative and at times medicating, ripe for those in need of a lifeline. Before it came Highway Songs, which was very electric, a bit electronic, and tended towards the eclectic: some songs with words, too. Are you getting us? M is the proud Papa of the classic turn-of-the-century, ur-pulse of the minimal universe album, Live From A Shark Cage, and David Pajo spent his formative years as guitar hero for the hugely influential rock band, Slint, out of Louisville, KY. Drool much, do ya?


Cinematic instrumental rock group A Broken Sail will be touring with M for this spectacle. Drawing from their Core counterparts, the band is building a solid following both locally and internationally.

The group have released 1 full length and 2 EPs, one split with Papa M via Blazebirth Records.
Know for their spacial compositions, volume assaults and searing sharp moments, A Broken Sail are carving out a nostalgic space that resonates with their peers.

Papa M is set to tour Australia in April! Check the dates below and prepare to engage!

17/4/20 – The Cranker, Adelaide SA
18/4/20 – Stay Gold, Brunswick Victoria

WHORES (USA) are touring Australia in April 2020

US Abrasive Noise Punks Whores. will make their way to Australia this April 2020 for their long-awaited tour.

The group will lay waste to stages in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Port Macquarie, Sydney, Geelong, Melbourne, Hobart and Adelaide

Since their inception in 2010, the natives of Atlanta, Georgia, have spent the last 10 years establishing Whores. as one of heavy music’s most distinctive acts thanks to the formidable combination of the group’s punk ethos and the ferocity of their sound.

Confrontational and relentless, the music of Whores. will now be seen and heard in its fully-formed state in Australia for the first time ever.

Beginning with 2011’s Ruiner EP, Whores. brought a welcomed new vision to the often-tired “extreme music” scene. Two years later saw the release of the Clean. EP, a six-track musical display of visceral rancor and songwriting brilliance. Highly anticipated by critics and fans alike, Clean. sold out within a month, prompting the group to release a second pressing. Touted by SPIN as one of 2013’s ‘Best Metal Albums’, Clean. simply reaffirmed what listeners had suspected all along. Whores. isn’t here to fuck around. Their 2016 debut full length album GOLD was included in Rolling Stone’s top 10 metal albums, and Metal Injection named the album the top noise rock album of the decade stating, “There is simply no topping what Whores. has done here.” 

Catch these riff-wielding maniacs on their debut tour of Australia in April 2020 on the following dates down the east coast:

Thursday 2/4 Vinnies Dive Bar, Gold Coast QLD

Friday 3/4 The Foundry, Fortitude Valley QLD

Saturday 4/4 Cruise HQ, Port Macquarie NSW

Sunday 5/4 The Vanguard, Newtown NSW

Wednesday 8/4 Barwon Club, Geelong VIC

Thursday 9/4 TBA, Adelaide SA

Friday 10/4 Altar, Hobart TAS

Saturday 11/4 The Bendigo Hotel, Collingwood VIC

DROID (VIC) Hyperreality Tour 2020

Embarking on their first ever tour of Australia, Melbourne’s Heavy Doom purveyors DROID will trek to 5 states to give a glimpse of the live show that until now, only Melbourne has been privy to.

Having just released their debut album ‘Hyperreality’, DROID have been receiving international praise for their unique take on the genre, clocking up 12,000 plays on Youtube in the first 3 days of release.

Forming in 2017, DROID have worked hard over the past 2 years to earn support slots for BEASTWARS, BONGZILLA and most recently, Sludge Pioneers, CROWBAR.

But now DROID have decided it’s time to double their set and get out of Melbourne to share the stage with some of Australia’s greatest local band

“Bloody heck, Australia produces some damn fine Doom bands, and DROID is no exception. They’re as Monstrous as Monolord and harness the super stoner swing of Sleep. DROID are a kick ass live band and Hyperreality is an equally kick ass debut album” – Nato, BEASTWARS

“It’s a trip!! Killer riffs, tone for days – but it’s the quality of the songs that really stands out.“ – SLOMATICS

“DROID is a band who will drag the listener to hell and then force them to dwell upon the journey. This is more than just another doom band.” – Matt Bacon, Ripple Music

A perfect line up of supports is yet to be announced so stay tuned.

Nebula (USA) Australian and New Zealand Tour 2020

Legendary Californian Stoner Rock trio NEBULA are coming back to Australia and New Zealand in support of their new album “HOLY SHIT”!

Their last Australian tour, 20 years ago in 2000, saw sold out shows right across the country, with the need to upgrade to bigger venues in Sydney and Melbourne.

Featuring Rock n Roll stalwart Eddie Glass (Ex-Fu Manchu), NEBULA have released 5 albums and 5 EPs (including one EP with Sweden’s “Lowrider”) since their inception in 1997.

For the past few years, these “Rock n Roll Maniacs” have been punishing stages across the USA and Europe, alongside bands such as Sasquatch, Weedeater, Brant Bjork and Fatso Jetson. They have also hit some of the most world’s most renowned music festivals in the past 12 months, including Freak Valley Festival, Desertfest (London and Berlin) and Stoned & Dusted.

With rave reviews of this latest offering, released through Heavy Psych Sounds, the return of these Californian riff hounds was clearly in demand. The genre bending songs that make up this outstanding stoner rock/metal masterpiece is a testament to their maturity and carefully crafted riffery, which has seen them reach a new level; not only for NEBULA themselves, but for the whole stoner rock community.

Joining the Rock n Roll party bus will be Sydney’s legendary fuzz rock outfit ARROWHEAD, who will be joining NEBULA on the eastern dates of the Australian tour. They will be playing in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Arrowhead (signed to Ripple Music) are no stranger to the worldwide scene of Stoner Rock, with three albums and one EP up their sleeve, plus a tonne of 10/10 album and live reviews from credible sources all around the globe.

YAWNING MAN (USA) TOUR OZ & NZ in 2020

Desert Rock pioneers Yawning Man (Official) will finally make a soaring flight to our shores for a long-awaited tour of Australia and New Zealand in January 2020.

Forming in 1986, Yawning Man have released 7 studio albums and 5 split LPs/EPs.
The latest releases, “The Revolt Against Tired Noises” & “Macedonian Lines”, won over critics from the desert plains to across the oceans. This is not just due to the fact that Brant Bjork once said that “Yawning Man is the sickest band of all time”, or “They’re the greatest band I’ve ever seen”. Without the band and their commitment to the initiation of the first ever Generator Parties back in the 80s and 90s, Kyuss, QOTSA, Somali Yacht Club and Garcia’s many projects (including Sloburn and Unida) would not exist without this revolutionary band.

The trio, featuring Mario Lalli (Bass), Gary Arce (Guitar/Vocals) and now Bill Stinson (Drums), have crafted one of the most unique blends of Psychedelic, Post and Desert Rock, which can only be described in human language as YAWNING MAN.

The sound of Yawning Man stems from the Earth’s soul. While Gaia sends out signals to our spiritual ancestors and elders, the sound of the instruments gradually gather all of us in the moment, and the hypnotic mantras naturally enable the spread of love with the instruments of life we have.

Reviews of “Macedonian Lines”:

“It’s probably hard work to sound this effortless. Or maybe it’s the payoff from years of hard work completed. Like on “Melancholic Sade”, the bass lines are almost halting, yet they never interrupt the flow, as if teasingly testing what unusual shapes can be twisted into looking like elegant curves.”
Owen – Echoes and Dust

“As they ascend to their rightful place in the forefront of Desert Rock consciousness, their ongoing progression seems bound to inspire yet another generation of players.
J J Koczan – The Obelisk

Joining these Desert Rock Masters is Australian Psychedelic Prog Rockers Numidia, who will support YAWNING MAN for the East Coast of Australia.

New blood to the Psych/Prog Scene, NUMIDIA write beautifully crafted songs taking influence from Middle Eastern Psychedelic Rock, African Blues and American Folk, collaborating as a six-piece revolution of unity and love in music.

Catch them on tour in Australia and New Zealand in January and February 2020 at your local venue;

17/1 Friday – Whammy Bar, AUCKLAND
18/1 SATURDAY – Club Tavern, CHRISTCHURCH
