A band who sound nothing short of grandiose every time we see them play. This Liverpool-based band seamlessly fuse electronics, post-rock and shimmering guitar, occasionally flirting with metal.

We’ve loved watching them get better and better over the years as they’ve performed alongside the likes of Tera Melos, Svalbarduk, Employed To Serve, VASA, Cleft, VLMV, Adam Betts, and we’re delighted that they’re finally gracing the stage at The Facemelter.

It’s a huge joy to see this trio launching an album after they’ve been teasing us for over a year with sublime live performances of their latest material.

Combining punchy grooves, complex rhythms and catchy headnodding riffs, this instrumental band has found a sound that sits comfortably between prog, tech metal and math rock.

A band that’s developed a sound so unique, it barely could be described as fitting into any genre.

Back with us for the first time with their current lineup, the Bristol-based trio produce astonishingly complex noise, not always easy to follow, yet somehow still rife with chuggy rhythms that keep our heads nodding and feet tapping.

“The thunderous riffs pummel you, yet are immediate and infectious.” – Alt Dialogue
