Melbourne underground noise makers YLVA released their debut album, M E T A late last year via Pelagic Records.
Following on from the release, their extreme volume contrasts and stoic patience will be on show for the band’s first Australian tour this April/May!
Drawing influences from a deep well of experience in past outfits, YLVA create patient, dark and mysterious pieces of heavy music punctuated with crushing riffs.
Starting in Hobart with locals Departé and ending in Melbourne with Norway’s Ihsahn expect an intense evening of doomed sludge that will vibrate you to the very core.

Melbourne’s progressive prodigies, The Omnific, and Perth booking agency, Beardfoot, are thrilled to announce they’re teaming up to tackle the band’s Australian bookings. Consisting of two bass players and a drummer, The Omnific has created a wave of international interest with thanks to their astonishing video content that showcases the band’s unique song writing and breathtaking performances.

They recently dropped a new single and video for Ersatz, from their Kismet EP, released in late 2017.


Gaining interest and endorsements from reputable industry companies such as Ernie Ball Music Man and Darkglass Electronics, The Omnific is quickly cementing themselves as one of Australia’s must-see progressive outfits.
Beardfoot director, Josh Terlick, was an instant fan after the first listen of The Omnific’s 2017 EP, Kismet. “These young gents are absolute professionals and they’re product and delivery is world class. We love all things melodic and manic here at Beardfoot and are beyond stoked to add The Omnific to the roster”, Josh explains.
The Omnific joins other Beardfoot rostered heavy acts VoyagerOsaka Punch & Statues.

Their sophomore EP ‘Kismet’, released November 2017, showcases the development of the band’s music over the year, demonstrating the cascading elements of the music they create. ‘Kismet’ walks a solid line between being an attention-commanding virtuosic release and a masterful soundscape of epic proportions.
The Omnific’s accessible style is for all music lovers; from those seeking to be challenged to those who simply wish to be blanketed by atmosphere, creating an identifiable sound and resulting in a strong, diverse international fan base.
With their online videos accumulating over one million views, and over 30,000 Facebook likes – The Omnific’s unique style is spreading like wildfire.


Bird’s Robe Records, in collaboration with US label Equal Vision Records, have announced they will be releasing First Temple, the cult classic debut full-length from Australian progressive rock outfit, Closure in Moscow, on vinyl for the first time on Friday March 2. The news comes alongside the announcement that the band will be playing the record in full while supporting Protest The Hero on their North American tour during March & April, as well as additional headline dates across the US.
The band have also announced an exclusive Melbourne headline show at Workers Club on Saturday March 3rd, before departing for their first North American tour in 8 years.
Closure In Moscow have received critical acclaim internationally for their stellar live performance and avant-garde sound in the decade plus since they formed in Melbourne, Australia. First Temple saw the band breaking in the United States upon its release in 2009 and has since seen them become regarded as one of the most beloved acts in the world of progressive rock.
Following high profile tours with Coheed & Cambria, The Fall of TroyMEW & The Dillinger Escape Plan in 2016-17, the band are currently working on their forthcoming third full-length album.
