Stoner doom lords Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats have revealed they’ll be returning to Australia next year throughout February and March, taking in headline dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
They’ll also be making an appearance at Farmer & The Owl Festival in Wollongong, alongside the likes of Hot Chip, Sleaford Mods and Drab Majesty.
Uncle Acid, the brainchild of singer and guitarist Kevin Starrs, have released five albums of psych-tinged, riff-heavy metal since their formation back in 2009.
Their most recent was last year’s Wasteland. A concept record about a society in which people live in walled cities under heavy surveillance, the album strays from the usual Black Sabbath idolatry the genre can be plagued by.
Instead, the band took significant influence from ’70s power pop and, as Starr commented around the time of release, “tied it to the back of a van and will now parade it along Main Street. I’m sure people will be delighted that we’re back in town.”
