Earthless Debut New Zealand Shows Announced

Tuesday 27th November, 2018 12:00PM

California psychedelic riff masters Earthless are heading to Aotearoa for the very first time this February, with a three date run of shows lined up for Auckland, Wellington and Tauranga. Revered for their otherworldly and immersive psych-rock prowess, the trippy trio of Isaiah Mitchell, Mike Eginton and Mario Rubalcaba (also of Off!) are touring in celebration of their latest studio album Black Heaven and new live record From the West, both of which materialised into reality this year. The group's monstrous jams draw aural inspiration from such titanic outfits as Amon Düül II, Blues Creation, Cream and Led Zeppelin, lovers of groove-heavy, mind-blasting guitar freakouts don't need to think twice. Here's the info...


Friday 22nd February - Valhalla, Wellington
Saturday 23rd February - Totara St, Tauranga
Sunday 24th February - Galatos, Auckland

Tickets available HERE via UTR

Press release:

California psychedelic heavyweights Earthless play New Zealand for the first time in February 2019. They’ll be touring on the back of their acclaimed 2018 studio album Black Heaven and their new live album From the West. Comprised of singer/guitarist Isaiah Mitchell, drummer Mario Rubalcaba (also of punk supergroup Off!) and bassist Mike Eginton, Earthless have previously toured down under four times; the last time in 2015.

Formed in 2001 in San Diego and citing Japanese psych bands like Blues Creation and Krautrock bands like Amon Düül II as early inspiration, the primarily instrumental trio has recently embraced Isaiah’s soulful vocals and heavy classic rock influences like Cream and Led Zeppelin. New direction or not, Earthless’s flamethrower approach remains – their music melts and burns and completely envelopes an audience. New Zealand fans will not be disappointed!
