PONTIAK - UK live dates with EARTHLESS in July/August
PONTIAK are three brothers from the rural hills of Virginia - Lain, Van and Jennings Carney - who come together to make expansive, elemental psych rock grooves, which draw on the proto-metal of Sabbath, the howling psychedelia of Comets on Fire and the heavy stoner rock of Kyuss.
They will be playing VERY LOUD, along with with cosmic space rock behemoths EARTHLESS, at the following venues this summer...
Sun 26th Jul : Birmingham - Supersonic Festival
Mon 27th Jul : Leeds - Cockpit 3
Tue 28th Jul : Glasgow - Captains Rest
Wed 29th Jul : Manchester - Retro Bar
Thu 30th Jul : Bristol - The Croft
Fri 31st Jul : London - The Borderline
Sat 1st Aug : Brighton - Engine Room
To get an idea of what to expect from these boys you can watch a great video of them playing live earlier this year in Baltimore...
The tour comes hot on the heels of the release of their critically acclaimed record, Maker (thrill213), which is available now on Thrill Jockey Records.
"One of the most ambitious and inconoclastic rock records of the year" (Pitchfork)
"Nuanced amplifier worship in excelsis" **** (MOJO)
"An elongated power surge of improvisational rock which is ploughed straight and deep" (The Wire)
"A mighty chewy stoner-rock joint" (Plan B)
As a taster for this record you can find a free download of the track Honey here...
The band have also done an amazing video for Aestival , which you can check out here...
