Austrian psychedelic, progressive trio Motherís Cake will be returning to Australia in February 2017!

Motherís Cake have been producing their explosive blend of psych, indie, blues and space rock since their formation in 2008 and have developed into a phenomenal live act.
The raw, pure energy transmitted by the band affects audiences on a primal and collective level. An energy Australian crowds have not experienced since the bands debut tour here in 2014 where they co-headlined Melbourneís Rock The Bay Festival.
Joining Motherís Cake for the full Australian tour are Melbourneís purveyors of astral space rock, AlithiA
Recently returned from a late 2016 European tour and fresh from appearances at Melbourneís titanic Progfest 2016, and supporting Germanyís The Ocean,
AlithiA take you on a journey through the cosmos, with their hypnotic live show shaped by melodies with mutant riffs, driven by tribal percussion, and a shamanistic feel which captivates you whole.

Newcastle natives, Zappo describe their sound as The B 52ís playing Sonic Youth. With that in mind, best get to The Small Ballroom early and catch their infectiously energetic live show!
Three piece localís Stone Empire are on the rise. With a #1 Chart position on Triple Jís Unearthed and two more in the top 5, they are undoubtedly making an impact!

Adelaideís post rock, progressives, Overview Effect recently opened for Swedish heavyweights, Katatonia and played second from the top at last years' Vision Festival. Moving from strictly instrumental, the addition of female vocals has taken their music into otherworldly realms.

In Canberra, Renegade Peacock will deliver a set that comes straight from the Seattle sceneís golden age. With an undeniable grunge influence and a bit of Hendrix thrown in, the band will have The Basement primed and ready for the fuzzy goodness set to be delivered by Tundrel.
