"LIFE IS NOISE PRESENTS:
NEUROSIS (USA)
AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND TOUR
FEBRUARY 2017

LIFE IS NOISE is pleased to announce the return of Neurosis to Australian shores, and the first ever tour of New Zealand, this February.

The ‘post’ pioneers will be crushing audiences in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

In a world that feels increasingly dark and helpless, it’s comforting to know that Neurosis will always be there to help us wallow through the filth. - Heavy Blog Is Heavy

Last year marked 30 years of Neurosis. From their beginnings as a hardcore punk outfit, the Oakland, California natives have spent more than three decades at the forefront of heavy music—their sound influencing big underground names like High On Fire, Yob and Mastodon. Now this genre-defying collective is once again breaking new ground with the release of their 11th studio album, Fires Within Fires.

Befitting this epic milestone, Fires Within Fires brings together elements from “each stage of Neurosis’ multifaceted career” while also forging new territory.

There is something almost magical about every new Neurosis release and the very human beauty of this particular album makes it the perfect companion to long nights and hard days. - Metal Injection

A staggering display of simmering tones and quiet, building power, Fires Within Fires is a testament to the human condition—the suffering and sacrifice each of us is willing to go through, embodied by crushing melodies, soaring chords and the exploration of extremes. Although significantly shorter than their previous releases, this works to their advantage as they tread the distance between faster riffs and minimal, hypnotic odysseys. The result is utterly entrancing.

They make art that materialises and manifests their suffering… Death, war, birth, healing, family loss, anxiety, fear, depression, and many of the other aspects of the human experience are all there in their music. - Invisible Oranges

Neurosis live is the stuff of legend. Always ahead of the game, they realise their musical vision by creating a level of intimacy with audiences that leaves you craving more. Uncompromising, raw and devastatingly heavy—even in moments of pure silence—each note reveals the intense connection between their art and each other.

Sydney’s DISPOSSESSED will be supporting on all Australian dates.

Catch Neurosis on the following dates:
Wellington – San Fran – February 14
Auckland - Kings Arms - February 15
Brisbane – The Triffid – February 16
Sydney – Manning Bar – February 17
Melbourne – The Croxton – February 18"

So bloody stoked on this! Saw them In Toronto last year and they fully ruled.

Got my Auckland and Wellington tickets as quick as I could. Who else is heading to both? Anyone road tripping from Welly to AK?

One of those bands I haven't listened to much of but was always gonna jump at the chance to see. Was momentarily worried when I saw the 14th tour date pop up. :baton: It's the night after Simple Minds/B-52's in Akld, and heard rumours of another good show happening later that week.

Ooh I've only booked flight from Dunedin - Wellington so far so I'd be stoked to know if I was up in AK already there would be another international band playing to make it worth the stay. At least before I book return flights from AK back to Dunedin.

Hit me a PM with who you think it might be if you don't wanna mention it on here ;-)

That language slip up can definitely be attributed to old mate 420.

Hell yeah. I'm excited about seeing Spook the Horses play a set of their heavier material as well.
