German retro-rockers Kadavar are returning to Australian and New Zealand shores in March and April 2020.
Not having visited Australian since their 2013 tour with Blues Pills and the follow-up 2016 headline tour, interest will be high in catching them perform albums worth of new live material.
Their latest album release, ‘For the Dead Travel Fast’, reignites new depths and heights alike on this their fifth and darkest full-length.
The record is a perilous journey into the land of the dead, a foray into the bleakest corners of our minds.
It’s a heavy, slow-paced, throbbing force of guitar, bass and drums preciously enriched by spooky synths and a brooding narrative reminiscent of the Victorian death-cult.
“Something like this wouldn’t have been possible earlier in our career,” drummer Tiger says.
“Only now do we know each other well enough to pull off something like this.
“We have the feeling we created something new while at the same time having rediscovered our core DNA. Feels damn good.”
Kadavar have smashed out large capacity international tours and festivals such as Hellfest Psycho Las Vegas, Download, Wacken en masse and landed German and US chart positions for a host of album releases.
Having shared the stage with icons such as Ozzy Osbourne and Scorpions, Kadavar embody the vintage sounds of their predecessors while calling on imagery derived from magic, horror films and the occult like some dark 70s psych trip, relentlessly touring the globe with their lysergic frenzy of a show.
Together the power trio form a unique symbiosis, challenging each other to fill the sonic space between them when the curtain goes up.
Their retro style, incorporating psych, stoner rock, retro rock and doom, has been compared to bands of the 1970s hard rock and metal era such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.
The tour stops in a host of cities across the two countries including Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland, Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne, Scarborough and Perth.
