Following completion of their third mainland Australian tour, this time in support of post-rockers sleepmakeswaves, post-metal visionaries ROSETTA will visit Tasmania for the very first time this December. The band has just released their sixth album Utopioid – a dramatic and compelling journey that takes their staggeringly huge sound through astronomical peaks and troughs. Joining them will be black/post-metal Tasmanians DEPARTE, capping off a huge year following the release of their Season of Mist debut, Failure, Subside. Do not miss this spectacular clashing of absolutely mammoth (yet deeply thoughtful) heavy metal.
Utopioid is OUT NOW at ROSETTA’s Bandcamp site. They have partnered with Bird’s Robe Records in Australia for the release.
Now a fully-independent band, Utopioid is their sixth full length album and most concept-driven work to date. Written as a four-part song cycle that treads multipolar extremes of texture, dynamics, and harmony, it reaches the highest heights and the deepest lows of the band’s career. An unflinching study of human aspiration, frailty, and betrayal, the album is equal parts mysticism and biography. Utopioid tells a story in sounds, encapsulating and transcending the band’s 14 years of sonic experimentation.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see Rosetta in Tasmania for the first time ever and on their mainland tour of Australia supporting post-rock legends sleepmakeswaves.
Tickets for both legs of the tour are on sale at oztix.com.au now.
