Seattle drone doom progenitors finally pay us a visit.

More Earth More Earth

Despite their indisputable heaviness Seattle's Earth, influence can be felt through all sorts of musical styles over the past couple of decades. They seem to have influenced as many bands as influence their unique and varied sound. Sprouting from the early-'90s Seattle grunge scene, the band's first couple of records saw them fit in the same kind of vein as bands like Melvins, but as they developed they slowed things down, began to add elements of jazz and country music and developed into one of the most intriguing propositions in contemporary rock music.

They formed in 1990 but have never been to Australia, which just makes it more exciting to hear that they will be playing shows in our country this September; stock up on earplugs and get ready to experience their heartfelt and haunting drone doom at the following shows:

Sunday 9 September – The Zoo, Brisbane
