Fri 22 Mar
Live: Crippled Black Phoenix
Crippled Black Phoenix, the UK/Sweden based band that revolves around mastermind Justin Greaves (formerly of Iron Monkey / Electric Wizard) team up with US dark wave goth bands Soft Kill and Fotocrime to present their mindwarping latest album, Great Escape, released September 2018 through Season of Mist. While many have tried categorizing CBP’s unique blend of sonic madness, the terms Prog-, Post-, Psych-Rock or anything close to doom or stoner (sic!) won’t ever do it justice, and now, about a decade and a half into the band’s existence maybe it’s time people just sit back and enjoy what CBP has to offer without having the need to box in what can’t be boxed in. Great Escape is pure misery wrapped in beauty, a near 90 minute trip to drag you through the mind and soul of everyday people and their battles to escape a world destined to bring us all down.
Support comes from Portland’s Soft Kill, who’s 2018 record Savior on Profound Lore became an instant classic for fans of dark goth and post punk and Fotocrime from Louisville, Kentucky, the new brainchild of former Coliseum singer/guitarist Ryan Patterson. Revolver Magazine called Fotocrime “Darkwave Heaven” and their debut album, the deeply personal “Principle of Pain” is one of the highlights of 2018.
One of the most exciting package tours in 2019 will see the bands play all over Europe, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom to conclude the tour at the legendary Roadburn Festival in Tilburg mid-April.
