Karnivool are a curious beast. They have been a band for a long time, the twists and turns of their musical adventure get more interesting and more complicated as time goes on. “Themata” introduced them to Australia, “Sound Awake” introduced them to the world, and the Aria winning #1 album Asymmetry solidified their reputation: the music mystery shrouded in a time-stretching conundrum. They ended the Asymmetry tour far from home at the Roundhouse in London and then, apart from a brief run to celebrate Themata and an even briefer run with friends The Deftones, silence. New music already aired live, some hints of writing, recording but very little else – Karnivool had gone to ground.
That had to change, change is the constant and Drew, Kenny, Steve, Hoss and Jon will be seen on stage together for the first time in 18 months in regional Victoria in January and no better place than the collective of like minded souls that is UNIFY Gathering. Their live show is unparalleled, their influence stretches from Mumbai to Melbourne, and they cant wait to give folks a glimpse of what they have been cooking up. It’s a new day indeed, and the refreshed and renewed band is ready to roll, we hope you are as excited as they are.
