Friday, 17th May
Tickets available Via See Tickets or in Store at Tickets Scotland
Australian, psych-rock luminaries Stonefield, have hit the ground running with a busy, and very exciting 2019. As they wrap up their first tour of the year, supporting King Tuff on his North American dates, the band has announced they will be entering the studio with King Gizzard’s Stu Mackenzie and Joey Walker for the follow-up LP to last year’s Far From Earth (Flightless), as well as a UK/EU Tour in May and June. The tour includes several festival stops including Desertfest, The Great Escape, Maifeld Derby and Tomavistas.
Their third studio LP, Far From Earth, was released earlier this year on King Gizzard’s Flightless Records via Inertia Music. The release has kept them in demand and on the road, with 2018 tours that included a headlining run in their native Australia, a sold-out leg with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, a Los Angeles residency at the Bootleg Theater, and a headlining tour of Europe and the UK.
Far From Earth, produced by Black Mountain’s Stephen McBean and featuring Rob Campanella from Brian Jonestown Massacre and Gregg Forman from Cat Power, is the latest addition to an extensive catalog that the four Findlay sisters have been officially releasing since 2010, but a catalog they have been building since the days when they were only as tall as the strange stone formations that surround their hometown in Australia’s rural south-east. For over a decade, the band have seemingly existed within their own stellar nebula; unaffected by fleeting modern musical trends, their sound is a homage to the prog, metal and psych powerhouses of the 70s whilst remaining completely their own.
“These four sisters ooze talent and grit,
an undeniable powerhouse destined for great things.”
– Indie Shuffle
“Seamlessly combines psych, prog, indie rock, and heavy metal…if you’re into the tripped-out, lava lamp-conducive stuff from that era, you’re probably gonna like this too.”
– Brooklyn Vegan
