'The After Dark' Australian Tour : Glass Ocean & Ebonivory
With Weightless In Orbit & guests
One of the fastest rising acts of the burgeoning Australian progressive music scene, Ballarat's Ebonivory are teaming up one of the scenes most prominent bands, Sydney's Glass Ocean this February and March for a co-headline tour.
The last twelve months have seen Ebonivory rise through the Progressive ranks to be a commanding live act. A whirlwind performance at Australia's acclaimed PROGFEST festival, alongside international heavyweights The Ocean (Germany), Monuments (UK) and Skyharbor (India/USA) kicked off 2019 in a big way for the guys. They then went on to support alt-rock powerhouse Dead Letter Circus and traversed the country with progressive rock juggernaut Circles for The Winter Tour.
The band’s singles Patting the Black Dog & Tales of Termina landed coverage with PROG Magazine (UK), Triple J's "The Racket", Spotify's "Homegrown + Heavy" Playlist, and Rage.
In May, Ebonivory will be heading to the US and Canada with arguably Australia's finest prog rock outfit, Caligula's Horse for an epic 26 date tour!
Ebonivory create an engaging mosaic of raw emotion, complex rhythmic devices, and prismatic melody. Formed in 2014 by prodigious composer, multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Charlie Powlett, this world class 5-piece ensemble employs a unique distillation of alternative rock, progressive metal, post-hardcore and modern punk, delivering a breathtaking performance that unifies musicians, melomaniacs, and casual listeners alike. They have built a reputation as an act that consistently delivers music that grows in ambition and scale with each release.
Boasting maturity beyond their years, and earning a reputation as a must see live act with their modern take on late 90's progressive pop sugar-coated with a subtle hint of pure and incorruptible sensuality, Glass Ocean are one of Australia's most prominent up and coming acts.
The band have been locked away in the studio for the past two years completing their debut record with producer Chris Blancato (Northlane), and will be previewing new tracks from the new record for fans ahead of it's 2020 release as well as crowd favourites.
Having released two critically acclaimed EP's and a few impressive music videos including their clip for 'Light Of The Moon' clocking up over 80,000 views on YouTube, Glass Ocean have gone onto support high profile acts such as Wolfmother, Anathema (UK), Seether (South Africa), TesseracT (UK), The Ocean (Germany), Monuments (UK), Skyharbor (India/USA), Northlane, Sleepmakeswaves, Caligula's Horse, Closure In Moscow and most recently with Opus Of A Machine as well as appearing on Progfest 2019.
Glass Ocean's frontman Tobias Atkins also recently performed a very intimate acoustic set on the Sydney leg of the Caligula's Horse tour last year that left the audience speechless with his emotional power.
Be sure to come and witness one of the best nights of Australian progressive music this year!
