Lightning Bolt return to Aussie shores to blow minds, wet pants and deafen ear drums.

With Brian Chippendale on drums and vocals and Brian Gibson on bass, Lightning Bolt have become infamous for explosive and intense drumming combined with earth crushing and complex bass techniques, which propels them in a fury of volatile noise and orgiastic tribalism.

Lightning Bolt emergedfromProvidence, Rhode Island in ’95 as an art project. They soon became known fordestroying the conventional idea of live performances; with their guerrilla style shows – typically playing in the middle of their crowd.

They’ve collaborated with a number of influential artists fromThe Flaming Lips to Bjork and album after album; they’ve grown tighter and brawnier. Lightning Bolt last left us, overwhelmed, in 2009, however return to Australia this October for ATP’s ‘Release The Bats’ Festival and national tour.

Lightning Bolt will provide Australian audiences a ferocious, second chance to discover why Pitchfork drools over their live show,describing it as an “atomic blast of crystalline fury that send shards of feedback and blistering distortion into anyone who dares witness such savagery in the flesh.”

“One of the most exciting and exhilarating live bands you could ever see” – The Guardian
