Can you believe it’s June already? Time flies when you’re having fun – doesn’t it?! This month is again full of great shows – more than any of us could ever really attend. And yet we keep trying. In this gig guide we focus on the smaller underground shows but might throw in some bigger events if we feel like it. Hopefully we’ve covered most of the shows coming up – although I’m sure we’ve missed some! Let us know if you spot any glaring omissions.
Things are really ramping up for gigs this month – May is looking mighty fine! I’m sure you’ve already got your eyes on some shows. This guide aims to give you a flavour of what’s happening up and down the country. We can’t mention every gig but if you think we’ve forgotten something important, please let us know! We focus on the smaller underground shows but might throw in some bigger events if we feel like it.
Here at Clobber, we're very excited to be working with our first ever international band - Salix Babylonica - all the way from Ecuador. We will be releasing their perfectly melancholic split with UK black metal stars ABSINTHROPY on 12 April. We sat down with vocalist/lyricist A. Nostalgie to find out more about the project, why she feels compelled to make music and the music scene in Ecuador.
It's not long before UK extreme metal heavyweights ABSINTHROPY unleash their spine-chilling split release with Ecuador black doom outfit SALIX BABYLONICA (Clobber, 12/04/2019). These guys haven't been pulling punches for the last 10 years either through their absorbing and fairly extensive back catalogue as well as countless mesmerising live shows. Their reputation is growing by the day and, with that in mind, we knew that we must waste no time and catch up with Fowler and White to find out all about their mission and their minds.
April is going to be good – we can feel it in our collective bones. The time is right to really get out there and listen to some terrible noise. This guide aims to give you a flavour of what’s happening up and down the country. We can’t mention every gig – we’re not omnipresent but if you think we’ve forgotten something important, please let us know! For this guide we’ll be focussing on the smaller underground shows but we may mention some of the bigger tours when the mood takes us!
