Known for their textured approach to alt/prog/metal as well as their sensitive and artful exploration of songwriting, they perform new material on this tour that has yet to be seen or heard by anyone else in this day – as well as their iconic back catalogue.
Their second album The last, released in 2018, was incredibly well-received worldwide and landed the #AIR Independent Albums and #47 ARIA Digital Albums chart positions, while reaching nearly three million Spotify streams worldwide. With a fourth place finish on TheMusic’s Album of the Year, it’s an album of enormous power and the first on their album to feature frontman Ben Rechter, whose lush dynamic vocals have become a signature sound in constant expansion of the group.
Supporting them on all dates are the jaw-dropping progressive instrumental trio The Omnific – a line-up with a unique line-up of two bass players and a drummer. They will also be joined by the fivefold Future Static, which creates an exhilarating synthesis of alternative, melodic and progressive. Heartline also appears alongside Circles, a heavyweight alternative band that exploded onto the scene with their 2019 debut album. I call the downward heat.
