ROCK HEAVYWEIGHTS 1000MODS ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR SUPPORTS

ROCK HEAVYWEIGHTS 1000MODS ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR SUPPORTS

 

Greek Hard Rock royalty 1000mods have just announced a full upcoming support card of over 30 local bands in the leadup to their much anticipated Australian Tour this April.

Tagged by International music mag The Obelisk as being "at the head of the pack of European heavy Rock and Roll", the band bring their psychedelic onslaught to nine venues around the country on the back of a Mojo Burning festival appearance.

Included in the nominated supports include Child (Melb), Neptune Power Federation (Syd) featuring members of Frenzal Rhomb, Filthy Lucre (Adel), Witchskull (Canb), The Ugly Kings (Melb), Legs Electric (Perth), The Floors (Scarb) and many more.  Full support details below.

1000mods also spearhead a new Geelong minifest instalment labelled 'Psych Lords' with eight bands (Child, Devil Electric, Whoopie Cat, Smoke Witch and more) hitting the The Workers Club Geelong on Sunday April 07.  

Having risen from smokey basements to packed arenas, leaders of the now-legendary Greek heavy rock scene 1000mods offer inspired, powerful and uniquely fresh tunes having shared the stage with some of the world's largest acts including The Black Keys, Mastodon, The Black Angels and Graveyard.  The last few years have included a slew of sold out venues across Central Europe, Scandinavia, Britain, the US, Canada and Mexico on the back of their thick and heavy analogue sound and relentless touring schedule.

Described as having live 'flawless flow' (Soundgaze), the Greek Stoner lords have become known for remarkably passionate stage performances and soccer stadium-like crowd sing-a-longs amidst international festival appearances at Hellfest Open Air, Desertfest (Athens, Belgium, London and Berlin), Up in Smoke, Riff Ritual and many others including a recent sold out home show (3500 capacity) at renowned Athens venue Theatro Vrachon (PIC).   This is a Rock band on the verge of international stardom who are widely  considered to be the new-found power of the European (some say “worldwide”) heavy rock scene.

The 2019 Australian Tour, covering shows in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Geelong, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth and Scarborough, marks the first time the band have ventured onto Australian shores, a task not taken lightly by the band or promoter Christian Tryhorn of Beats Cartel who says of the upcoming tour "We're long term fans of 1000mods and are excited to now be in the position of bringing them into the country for the first time.  Their raw power and riffage is some of the best in the world, each album gets better with every listen!  Can't wait to show the people of Australia one of the best live acts in Europe".

 

 "An exceptionally finished squad, dropping tonnage with killer precision that comes on like a fit, groomed mammoth." Orlando Weekly


1000mods will also be a part of an upcoming feature length documentary entitled 'Greek Rock Revolution', a tale of the rising Rock scene in Greece amidst nation-wide economic turmoil.  The documentary will be released in March and also features Tuber, Naxatras, Puta Volcano, Planet of Zeus and more.

Heavier than life, psychedelic, trippy, hauntingly melodic and dangerously addictive, catch 1000mods live in Australia for the first time ever, travelling East to West for Beats Cartel and HEAVY Mag.  With tour help from Young Henrys, Maric Media, Orange Amplifiers, The Obelisk, Tuff Cuff Records, Music Junction, Alketone, One BE Productions and Riff Lord
