65daysofstatic Announce First Ever Australian Tour

Written by Mike Solo on August 27, 2012

One of the world’s most popular instrumental groups 65DAYSOFSTATIC have announced their first ever visit to Australia, performing headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth as well as this year’s Peat’s Ridge Festival.

The tour follows the recent announcement of the release of their back catalogue in Australia, beginning with their latest We Were Exploding Anyway/Heavy Sky featuring Robert Smith (The Cure), followed by deluxe editions of their first 3 albums.

Formed in 2001 in Sheffield, 65daysofstatic quickly established themselves as one of the most influential post-rock exponents in the UK. Whilst their early EPs showed a band dabbling in electronica and dance-rock, the band was equally at home playing epic instrumentals and math-rock.

The success of their 2004 debut LP The Fall of Math and the follow-up One Time for all Time earned the band a personal invitation to support The Cure on their 2007/08 arena tour around the world. Flowing into 2009, the band played to hundreds of thousands of people across the US, UK, Europe and Asia.

Their most recent records The Destruction of Small Ideas and We Were Exploding Anyway have seen the band shift into an electronic-based sound that has seen them compared to peers such as Battles and Aphex Twin. Straddling both rock and electronica, the band has created a hybrid sound that is truly unique.

It’s the band’s live show, however, that has made them one of the most popular instrumental touring acts in the world. Where their records show their ornate instrumentation and experimental sound manipulations, their live show is a rock and roll rave that has seen them share stages with the likes of Metallica and play huge festivals such as Sonisphere and Summersonic, as well as massive European dance parties.

The tour and releases will be followed by the band’s newest studio album, due in mid-2013.

We Were Exploding Anyway/Heavy Sky is out now through Bird’s Robe Records. Tickets on sale Monday 20th August
