San Diego heavy psych trio EARTHLESS have added an extra Melbourne show to their Feb/March national tour and have switch venues for their Perth show.
The extra show is at the Tote in Collingwood, on Saturday, March 9, and the new venue for their March 10 show in Perth is the site of previous EARTHLESS glories out West, the Rosemount Hotel. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
They’ll be touring on the back of their acclaimed 2018 studio album Black Heaven and their new live album From the West. Comprised of singer/guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, drummer Mario Rubalcaba (also of Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes and hardcore supergroup Off!) and bassist Mike Eginton, Earthless have previously toured down under four times; the last time in 2015.
Formed in 2001 in San Diego and citing Japanese psych bands like Blues Creation and Krautrock bands like Amon Düül II as early inspiration, the primarily instrumental trio has recently embraced Isaiah’s soulful vocals and heavy classic rock influences like Cream and Led Zeppelin. New direction or not, Earthless’s flamethrower approach remains – their music melts and burns and completely envelopes an audience. Old fans and new will not be disappointed when the band heads back down for their biggest Australian tour yet.
