Holy Serpent + Earth Tongue New Zealand Shows Announced

Wednesday 23rd January, 2019 2:00PM

Melbourne-based sonic basilisk Holy Serpent will be treating North Island punters to their textural brand of psychedelic stoner / doom in March, touring alongside Wellington heavy-psych riff masters Earth Tongue. Since 2014 the Australian low-tuned, shroom-consumers  have been buzzing out brains and rattling skulls to global acclaim, releasing their 2015 self-titled opus as well as 2016’s Temples, while Earth Tongue have been building anticipation for a follow up to their 2016 debut collection Portable Shrine with a clutch of mind expanding recent singles. Both groups will be rocking Wellington’s aurally adventurous Newtown Festival 2019 as well as Auckland’s convergence of cacophonous musical entities Full Noise 2019, take in the details here...

Press Release:

Following a successful co-headlining Australian Tour in 2018, both bands split paths to cover the globe individually with Holy Serpent continuing to support/tour with some of the the biggest names in the genre and continue to refine their approach to riff worship. Earth Tongue opted to head North where they spent the better part of the european summer carving their brand of heavy psych into the locals earholes - clearly they're doing something right to be invited back later this year to do it all again! The two bands will coming back down under to join forces again through New Zealand in early 2019, bringing a plethora of local Heavy, Psych, Stoner & Punk acts along for the ride.
