High On Fire Australian Tour 2014 Announced

From the ashes of the mighty stoner metal pioneers Sleep rose High On Fire, sending the primordial sludge coursing with a newfound power and velocity into the next generation. The heavy Bay Area trio have now announced they will return to conquer Down Under once again this July.

Fans last got a chance to soar with the band’s iconic frontman Matt Pike when he and a reformed Sleep played All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Release the Bats event in Melbourne, receiving high acclaim from old and new fans alike for the outfit’s relentless, diesel-fuelled power and stage presence.

Over the course of 16 years and six lauded albums, High On Fire have been carrying the torch of their riff-wielding forebears Black Sabbath, crafting songs the way warlocks craft spells, ensuring each track is a hypnotic tract as intricate and deliberate as it is brutal and utterly compelling.

Readers can check below for all details on how to get in the ring and receive a punishing blow from frontman Pike’s blitzkrieging guitar solos and the pummelling rhythms of bassist Jeff Matz and drummer Des Kensel. High On Fire’s Australian tour kicks off Wednesday, 16th July at Crowbar.
