Highly regarded as one of the most explosive heavy psych live experiences on the planet, Kadavar return to Australian and New Zealand shores in March/April 2020 for Beats Cartel on the back of a Mojo Burning Festival appearance.
Not having visited Australian since their 2013 tour with Blues Pills and the follow-up 2016 headline tour, interest will be paramount in 2020 to catch one of the best names in the business perform albums worth of new live material.
There are few bands who’ve had more of an effect on the course of classic heavy retro rock this decade than Germany’s Kadavar, having never sounded so much in command of their music.

Arguably the hardest working band in European rock, Kadavar have established themselves quite simply in a different league form their retro-rock labelled peers, smashing out large capacity international tours and festivals (Hellfest/Psycho Las Vegas/Download/Wacken) en masse and landing German and US chart positions for a host of album releases.
Latest album release For the Dead Travel Fast, reignites new depths and heights alike on this their fifth and darkest full-length. The band’s fifth record is a perilous journey into the land of the dead, a foray into the bleakest corners of our minds. A heavy, slow-paced, throbbing force of guitar, bass and drums, preciously enriched by spooky synths and a brooding narrative reminiscent of the Victorian death-cult.
“Something like this wouldn’t have been possible earlier in our career. Only now do we know each other well enough to pull off something like this” drummer Tiger nods, “We have the feeling we created something new while at the same time having rediscovered our core DNA. Feels damn good.”
