Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, will hit the road for a national tour over September and October in support of their new album In Contact, to be released on September 15 through Inside Out Music.
The band are pleased to announce that Melbourne progressive instrumental project, I Built The Sky will join them on the tour as their special guests. I Built The Sky is the work of one man Rohan ‘Ro’ Stevenson who released his second album under the IBTS name in October 2016 titled The Sky Is Not The Limit and quickly gained the support of media in Australia and around the world.
After four years as a studio project, I Built The Sky was finally taken to the stage in 2015 supporting Plini before playing a string of big shows in 2016 including; Between The Buried And Me / CHON, a co-headline tour with James Norbert Ivanyi, a performance at Melbourne Guitar Show Main Stage and the opening slot on Ne Obliviscaris most recent tour with German prog masters The Ocean.
In 2017 I Built The Sky took things to the next level by undertaking a successful national headlining tour of Australia, the tour showcased brand new songs with an impressive lineup of musicians including
Rob Brens (Hadal Maw), Sam Tan (Artinem) and Stephen Taranto (The Helix Nebula).
With praise such as ‘one of the great instrumental rock/metal records of our time” from Heavy Music Magazine and “outstanding album from a guy who can play guitar better than you ever will”
from My Indie Australia, I Built The Sky will be an absolute treat for audiences across the nation as the appetiser to the main course of Caligula’s Horse.
