It's their first visit to Australia in their decade long career.
Portland instrumental rockers Grails have finally announced their first ever trip to Australia after a series of critically acclaimed records that have seen them cover so many obscure genres of music in such electrifying fashion.
While the band technically formed in 2000, it wasn't until three years later that they adopted the name they now possess before releasing their debut album The Burden of Hope in 2004. Since then they've kept fans on their toes with new records coming out pretty much every year, ranging from metal-inspired heaviness to spaghetti western influence post-rock and plenty of wild and wonderful places in between.
When in Australia for the first time they play shows along the east coast and in Perth, with one of their Melbourne dates in support of Tortoise and their Perth show as a part of the incredible looking This Is Nowhere festival. Have a listen to them here and witness their exploratory instrumental rock at the following shows.
