“Release week is always a special moment that we get to share with our fans, and we aren’t going to let COVID stop us!” said frontman Jake Taylor in a press statement.
“Our live stream will showcase new tracks from ‘Kaliyuga’ as well as fan favourites, plus a few surprises, all beamed live from our local venue in the heart of Byron Bay… And no, we will not be pre-recording the performance, it will be LIVE – let’s just hope it’s not a full moon or we could have Hellbringer 2.0 on our hands!”
‘Kaliyuga’ is the band’s fifth studio album and their first LP since 2017’s ‘Ark’. The record came out last Friday (August 7), and features singles ‘Moving On’, ‘Dystopia’ and ‘Hellbringer’ with Polaris’ Jamie Hails.
The environmentally conscious band went to lengths to ensure their recording process for ‘Kaliyuga’ was sustainable, implementing a carbon offset plan and hosting a tree-planting day on Saturday (August 8) to mark the album’s release.
“During the recording process, we measured every power socket, counted every light, pound of freight, food consumption, driving mile and airfare taken,” Taylor said in July.
“We were then able to find the total carbon footprint and offset it by supporting a rewilding project in Australia on First Nations land.
“Many industries are evolving, and as musicians we feel it’s time to do our part.”
The livestream show will take place on Thursday August 13 at 8pm AEST. Tickets can be found here.
