Ahead of their return to the Eastern states, The Kill Devil Hills have unveiled a stellar lis of supports for their upcoming Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart shows.
With a live set played with the swagger and self-assured confidence of a band on top of their game, The Kill Devil Hills have become highly regarded purveyors of rock angst, sun-ripened restraint and fierce poetry. Their new studio album, In On Under Near Water,”. the album thoughtfully segues from brooding prog-rock, into eerie atmospherics and spectral balladry. The melodies and arrangements are innovative, and woven tight, while the lyrics and their delivery are both warm, poignant and at turns unsettling.
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.
