The Kill Devil Hills will once more surmount the tyranny of distance, that lonely stretch the Triffids wrote about, today announcing they are headed back East for a national run of dates this August, hitting Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart.
The live form of the 6-piece veteran band really turn it up a notch on stage, their combined summoning of sonic swells a directly physical experience for the audience, and then switching from joking banter between tracks, they dive straight back into their swampy, psych and blues-infused rock with a swirling orchestration of fierce guitars, moody keys, gut-thrumming bass and drums, and the soaring drama of their noir-ish ballads.
A very highly rated live act on the Australian rock scene for years, this is a chance to see the Kill Devil Hills at the height of their game, and the new songs come alive on stage. Not one to miss.
