Perth experimental rock group Tangled Thoughts of Leaving have announced that they will be performing at next year’s Dunk! Festival in Zottegem, Belgium.
The alternative music festival is held March 29-31, 2013 and the lineup includes Maserati (US), My Empty Phantom (US), My Education (US), fellow Australians HEIRS and many more.
The festival will kick off Tangled Thoughts of Leaving’s maiden tour of Europe, with more dates and details yet to be announced.
Tangled Thoughts of Leaving’s latest album Deaden the Fields has seen the band develop a cult following worldwide. They have toured extensively across Australia during 2011 and 2012, including supports for Russian Circles, Boris, The Ocean, Dead Letter Circus, sleepmakeswaves, Grails and their own headline club tours with several sold-out dates in their home town of Perth.
The piano-driven progressive rock quartet have also announced new representation for Australia, with The Bird’s Robe Collective‘s Mike Solo (sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings, Pirate) coming on board the management team alongside Revert Entertainment’s Bradley Lindsay. Solo will also look after publicity for the band worldwide. Bookings in the UK and Europe will be handled by Belgium-based Frontal Noize agency’s Pieter Blomme.
Tangled Thoughts of Leaving will open 2013 by supporting 65daysofstatic (UK) at The Bakery in Perth on Sat Jan 5th, followed by a new release and national tour.
Personally, I consider TTOL to be one of the finest live bands in the country at the moment – it’ll be exciting to see the impact their live show has overseas. Significantly, TTOL and Heirs are only the 2nd and 3rd bands ever to play at Dunk Festival, after sleepmakeswaves’ co-headlining spot last year alongside 65daysofstatic, Pelican and This Will Destroy You. With PVT, Seekae, Meniscus and The Night Terrors also having toured Europe during the past year, it’s great to see Australian experimental music doing so well over there – we have some world-class talent at home, so get out and support them!
