Poison the Well. Think for a second about just what those three words imply, and you’ll have a good idea of how these South Florida-based post-hardcore titans have approached music since their 1998 debut. With their fifth studio album, The Tropic Rot, Poison the Well reach the apex of the idea behind their name, rolling out a wide-angle take on heavy music that’s so fully realized in its boundary-pushing, it makes it impossible to imagine the genre in any other way.
Fresh off the back of this stunning new album, and following on from mind blowing performances at this year’s Soundwave Festival, Poison the Well return to Australia this October for their very first headline tour. Audiences will experience a full set of fan favourites from Poison the Well’s ground-breaking back catalogue as well as new tracks from The Tropic Rot.
