LIFE IS NOISE PRESENTS:

High On Fire (USA)
AUSTRALIA + NEW ZEALAND TOUR
FEBRUARY 2016
Brisbane – Crowbar – Sunday, February 21
w. Smoke (Brisbane) & Kyzer Soze

LIFE IS NOISE is pleased to announce the 2016 Australia + New Zealand tour of heavy metal hellraisers HIGH ON FIRE.

High on Fire are one of the best metal bands in the world. Live or on record, few artists are capable producing the same kind of lava geyser of molten riffs and monstrous metal jams with such remarkable consistency. With every passing year, frontman Matt Pike’s mythology as a guitarist, vocalist and iconoclast only grows.

But this is no one man band. Though the spotlight is often cast on High on Fire’s bare-chested troubadour at centre stage, Pike is flanked by an illustrious rhythm section in bassist Jeff Matz and drummer Des Kensel. On their latest record, Luminiferous, High on Fire’s volcanic fury is at its best – and most bizarre.

“Lyrically, I think this is the album that's going to basically get secret people to shoot me,” Pike told Rolling Stone in the weeks leading up to Luminiferous’ release. “Dude, I say a lot of fucked-up shit!” It’s hard to top the conceptual bombast of 2012’s De Vermis Mysteriis, where Pike expounded on the story of Jesus’ time-travelling twin brother – but on Luminiferous, Pike takes the headfuckery to a whole new level. Think David Icke meets ancient aliens on an acid trip, narrated by Lemmy’s spiritual successor howling over incinerating riffage and gargantuan solos, and you’re maybe halfway there.

High on Fire have always been a band best consumed in the flesh. Their live show is an invigorating display of three world-class musicians at their creative peak. These songs erupt with unparalleled ferocity on stage. Pike’s mastery of the guitar is a sight to behold – he’s the kind of talent we’ll be talking about in the heavy metal canon for decades to come. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most powerful live bands on the planet.
