UK heavyweights Conjurer make their return to Australia playing a string of headline shows in May 2024, supported by Sydney’s blackened sludge veterans Lo! as well as American mathcore royalty Botch.
This will be Conjurer’s first tour of mainland Australia after playing a one-off exclusive show at Tasmania’s iconic winter festival Dark Mofo back in 2022. This run will see them playing shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Adelaide.
Conjurer’s version of extreme metal draws from an array of dark and heavy influences including Converge, Pallbearer, Today is the Day and mid-90s Opeth. 2022 saw the release of their latest album Páthos through Nuclear Blast, a triumphant return from the band following their world-renowned 2018 debut Mire. Páthos is a band flexing their creative muscles, deepening their approach, harnessing their thoughts and expanding their sound. It is not an album for the half-hearted or faint-hearted.
With elements of Sumac, Gojira and old-school Mastodon flowing through its DNA, the new record is a multi-layered beast where sludge, death, doom, black metal and hardcore influences clash, all masterfully finished by Will Putney’s exquisite production.
Sydney’s Lo! are known for their crushing riffs and infectious grooves and will support on the Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney leg of the tour, playing new material from their 2023 critically acclaimed album The Gleaners.
