"It is easy to forget that the now sprawling umbrella category of ‘post-rock’ meant nothing before Tortoise and their ilk introduced the nineties to the expansive potential of the genre. By infusing their unpretentious prog rock stylings with elements of jazz, dub, punk and Krautrock, the band invented a slow-burning form of instrumental music that, as it turned out, kickstarted the Wolverine of all musical genres." - The Quietus

One of the most significant forces of the post-rock movement, Tortoise, is back. 
After 25 years together—and a seven year break between albums—the quintet have returned with one of their most interesting, intelligent and improvisational recordings to date, The Catastrophist.

Born from entirely different origins to their previous six releases, The Catastrophist was sparked by a commission from the City of Chicago to develop a series of pieces inspired by their hometown’s storied jazz and music scenes. 

"The enjoyability of The Catastrophist is in this leap of faith, the idea that no mold is beautiful enough to remain unbroken, even if its new shape may be foreign and strange." - Pitchfork

The Catastrophist marks a subtle change for the band, with more cohesive elements amongst their usual penchant for experimentation, plus the notable addition of vocals making their debut on select tracks. Featuring guests from Yo La Tengo and U.S Maple, The Catastrophist reveals a new direction for the band that is more mature but still doesn’t stray from their trademark atmospheric guitars and opulent percussion.

"The quintet, elder statesmen of the post-rock/indie-rock crossover movement since the mid ‘90s, sounded like they had three coats of wax on their sound through the entire evening. All five musicians navigated around the various stations on stage (including two drum sets and two vibraphones) in a round robin of showmanship and talent, all in a silent confidence communicated through raised eyebrows and head-nods." - Consequence Of Sound

Tortoise live is an experience in itself. Utterly entrancing from start to finish, their set is an epic journey—from the devastatingly quiet moments to crushing and emotional highs. Splicing everything from dark energy, stilted beats and cold electronics with jazz, prog, indie and more organic ties—the musical landscape they create is not to be missed.

Tortoise will be supported by furious math-rock powerhouse, SEIMS—who have drawn comparisons to big names like 65daysofstatic, And So I Watch You From Afar, Battles and Adebisi Shank. And fellow Sydney locals Tangents will kick-off through an exploration of the space between classical composition, free jazz and experimental electronic music.
