Space Bong tour September 2012

Much has been made of Earth's first journey to Australian shores, and of the unforunate cancellation of Sunn O))). But how many have turned to look at the standard-bearers of drone in our own backyard?

Having peddled their degenerate form of doom across Australia for the last 6 years, Space Bong are a band operating on another level.

Their sophomore album 'The Death of Utopia' has become a cult hit -- and rightly so. Space Bong are one of the most raw, the heaviest, and above all believable doom bands on earth -- as every bit as dark as Sunn O))) and Kharnate, and as in-tune with drone as Earth and Yob. There is nothing ambiguous about the weight of their their nihilistic sludge; nothing is faked or forced.

Now - in the middle of recording their long-awaited new album 'Deadwood to Worms' - this South Australia sextet are hitting a string of shows on the east side of Australia, including an appearance at ThisIsNotArt 2012 in newcastle.

Be sure to catch then when they come through your town. Drone-merchants take note.
