Cult post-rock outfit Jakob are awakening from a long slumber to break an eight-year silence with a nationwide tour this October, bringing their formidably beautiful and long-awaited new record Sines (out 17 October on Shoot The Freak, NZ) to the stage. Internationally renowned for building splendorous walls of sound during live performances, this is a return to form that will see fans ecstatic and new generations of listeners floored.

Having toured Europe, the UK, Australasia and the US on the back of their 2006 record Solace, Jakob were twice personally invited to tour with American prog-rock heroes Tool throughout Australia and New Zealand, and toured along-side Damo Suzuki, frontman for seminal German psychedelic band Can. Injuries that prompted the eight-year hiatus are now a distant memory – New Zealand’s most formidable post-rock three-piece is back in full swing and ready to bring their unmistakable sonic texturing to the stage with a nationwide tour.

This will be an explorative aural adventure across six nationwide shows, kicking off on Thursday 23 October at The Cabana, in Jakob’s seaside hometown of Napier. The Sines tour continues down the line to Wellington (Friday 24 October at San Francisco Bath House), Christchurch (Friday 7 November, Churchill’s); Port Chalmers (Saturday 8 November; Chicks Hotel); before heading North to Auckland (Friday 14 November, Galatos) and Leigh (Saturday 15 November, Sawmill Cafe).

The album’s opening track and premiere single Blind Them With Science deftly explores delicate sonic textures as it erupts into a progressively clamorous roar. Jeff Boyle’s guitar work descends delicately into wide outbursts of noise and a swaggering riff, the bass of Maurice Beckett pulses with electric energy, and the powerful rippling of Jason Johnston’s drumming cascades between thunderous tom-work and eerily precise silences.

It’s a powerful introduction to a sonic journey that explores both menace and beauty through deft instrumentation and immaculate production. To hear Jakob on record is one thing; to witness them live is to enter a whole new realm of experience, as anyone who has done so will attest to. The formidably beautiful and long-awaited album Sines will be brought to the stage following its release on 17 October (Shoot The Freak, NZ). After an eight-year wait, Jakob are back on stage for six colossal shows you don’t want to miss.
