Karnivool

^^

When: Friday 31st May
Where: UNSW Roundhouse

Karnivool, Fidelity Corporation & Billions Australia are very happy to announce The Praxis Tour 2019. Praxis definition: the process of using a theory or something that you have learned in a practical way. Karnivool was a sleeping giant in 2018, but the beast stirred in January of this year with a short run of dates in WA and SA leading into a headlining slot at the Unify Gathering festival in regional VIC. This jaunt was so well received (all shows sold out) and more importantly so much damn fun for the band that it only seems fair that they should visit the rest of Australia and remind their fans how unique the atmosphere is in the temple of Vool - the band were a little overwhelmed by how many messages they got from other cities in Australia asking for a visit – it had been awhile! Previously announced festival appearances at Bassinthegrass in Darwin and the Big Pineapple in the Sunshine Coast will be now fleshed out with a headline tour hitting most capital cities the band weren’t able to visit in January. Karnivool are also very excited and honoured to have “the remotest metal band in the world” Southeast Desert Metal join them from Alice Springs on The Praxis Tour. It’s been too long, but let us put that well received theory into a practical setting. See you in May and June.

Kirin J Callinan

^^

When: Saturday 17th August
Where: Metro
Theatre

"It Takes A Muscle, to Fall in Love" is a single lifted from the upcoming third album "Return To Center" by Kirin J Callinan. The new single and album are a reconnection with what made him fall in love with music over and over, a personal exploration of the timeless songwriting. Following two albums of inimitable, challenging pop music that garnered global acclaim and marked Callinan as a singularly unique talent, it is ironically singing other peoples' songs that felt like the most truthful next step for Kirin as an artist. On "Return To Center" Callinan's trademark flamboyance is cut with a newfound fragility that comes curled up in an attempt to do justice to the songs he holds nearest and dearest. Callinan, and the albums zeitgeist producer Francois Tetaz, rework both all-time favourites and last-minute spontaneous additions, songs that have shaped the artist he is today amongst songs that were jammed out of the blue in their Silverlake garage come studio, spilling onto the street with ideas, gear and talent. Callinan sounds in step with OPUS's teutonic march "Life Is Life", before completely transforming the twitchy Prince-lite of Momus' "The Homosexual" into lithe, tender acoustic folk. The Waterboys' "Whole Of The Moon" is rendered even more melodramatic and heart wrenching than the original and comes off like the theme song to the greatest 80s sitcom you never saw, while Randy Newman's "Pretty Boy" sticks largely faithful to the sombre original, and Public Image Limited's "Rise" ascends amidst Celtic guitars and television news clips. At the chronological and spiritual center of the record - the eye of the storm - lies the title track and sole original composition. A stark, spacious instrumental, "Return To Center's serenity is interrupted by maniacal laughter, assumedly Callinan's. Return To Center glimmers with what Callinan describes as a "corporate spiritual" radiance. It is a punk rock meditation on record making, music past and present. For Callinan, it slices through a contradictory and confusing year of mistakes, exaggeration and misrepresentations to be his 'Return to Center'. "In August, 2018 I embarked upon my most ambitious solo album to date. With the Terrible Records plastic in hand & USD $8888.88 on it I, along with producer Francois T, said label head honch Ethan S, creative consorts and L'Angeleno shred pigs ~ set out to purchase the most spartan assembly o instruments & studio equipment deemed necessary. Guitars, drums and keyboards o course; as well as mics, monitors, a mandolin & multi fx, cords n cables, bongos, congas, maracas, a djembe, sticks, brushes & plenty o plectrums, plus a brand-new new-age low-budget digital desk recorder / mixer thingy (to capture the imminent magic) and a quintuplet of coloured bulbs + lamp (for mood) ~ all from my favourite West Hollywood instrument shop. Our sonic palette & deadline was set. There would be no going back. Kinda. That night, day zero, in an east LA garage; Travis, my trusted engineer, & I would set it all & power it up. Boxes stacked n stocked away with price tags still intact, we began in earnest, honestly, on what would become an album worth o tunes that were & are even more so now some of the nearest & dearest songs to me. All within 14 days. All before our eventual eviction from that garage on 1024 Manzanita Street. All before our inescapable...Return To Center" – Kirin J Callinan
