Ballarat prog band Ebonivory are teaming up with Sydney’s Glass Ocean for a co-headline tour in February and March
“We’re extremely excited to be touring with our friends in Glass Ocean; they were a strong influence of mine several years ago that restored my faith in making my particular brand of unique music and have owned the stage every time I’ve seen them perform,” vocalist Charlie Powlett says.
“This will be our final run of shows in Australia before we journey over to North America for the first time in May, so make sure you’re there to witness it!”
The last twelve months have seen Ebonivory perform at Australia’s Progfest alongside international heavyweights The Ocean (Germany), Monuments (UK) and Skyharbor (India/USA), and support Dead Letter Circus and Circles.
The band’s singles Patting the Black Dog and Tales Of Termina landed coverage with Prog Magazine (UK), Triple J’s The Racket, Spotify’s Homegrown + Heavy playlist, and Rage.
In May, Ebonivory will be heading to the US and Canada with prog rock outfit Caligula’s Horse for a 26-date tour.
Formed in 2014 by composer, multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Charlie Powlett, this five-piece ensemble employs a distillation of alternative rock, progressive metal, post-hardcore and modern punk.
With their modern take on late 90s progressive pop sugar-coated with a subtle hint of pure sensuality, Glass Ocean are one of Australia’s exciting up and coming acts.
Frontman Tobias Atkins says he’s excited to hit the road for this tour.
‘’Ebonivory are on their A-game and are completely unique in their style,” Atkins says.
“They give the scene an injection of vibrance, colour and passion.
“Teaming up with these boys is a hot ticket.
“Two bands that will hold nothing back and give you an experience you won’t forget. I can’t wait to hit the road with them!”
The band have been locked away in the studio for the past two years completing their debut record with producer Chris Blancato (Northlane) and will be previewing new tracks from the new record for fans ahead of its 2020 release, as well as crowd favourites.
Having released two EPs and music videos like Light Of The Moon, which has clocked over 80,000 views on YouTube, Glass Ocean have gone onto support acts such as Wolfmother, Anathema (UK), Seether (South Africa), TesseracT (UK), The Ocean (Germany), Monuments (UK), Skyharbor (India/USA), Northlane, Sleepmakeswaves, Caligula’s Horse, and Closure In Moscow, as well as appearing at Progfest 2019.
Atkins also recently performed a very intimate acoustic set on the Sydney leg of the Caligula’s Horse tour last year.
