APPEARING ON Thursday, April 18th, 2013


Free Entry

Deep in a hypodermic dream, at the back of junky autoclaves Obelisks are plotting the end of history, the full glottal stop of civilisation in whispered mirror shards and long black rivers, filled with the carcasses of a thousand gods a millennia and last summer ago. Their explosive manifesto has unraveled across the country over the last year since they were formed in a filmic haze of brittle distortion, ghostly euphoric electronica and choruses big enough to be seen from space; their sound a dazzling and panoramic blend of Klaxons, Sigur Ros, Mew, and Oceansize. It is their aim to be the biggest underground success of the decade, release the finest debut album of all time and annihilate civilisation before exploding in a conflagration of literature, mirror shards and junk tinged bodily fluids… with live shows that fall somewhere between a tsaoist riot and a nightclub at the end of the world, support shows with Lightspeed Champion, Succioperro and Gallops, this band have long been considered by those in the know one of the north wests’ finest underground band and simply have to be seen to be believed.

We believe in the catalogue model catwalk of ruined psychotherapy couches and hope you do too, come worship at the altar of Obelisks…
