Destroy All Lines & Wild Thing Presents
*Intrøspect not appearing for Brisbane show
Melbourne’s breathtaking progressive instrumental trio The Omnific will be returning to the touring circuit after 2 years for the highly anticipated Escapades Australian Tour; performing tracks from their 2021 acclaimed debut album Escapades for the first time nationally, plus a selection of deep cuts from their lauded back catalogue trio of EP releases.
Bassist Matt Fack comments, “Escapades has been a multi-year project for us, an album we worked on through the entirety of lockdown, and to now be able to perform what was created is a surreal feeling. Being our debut album, the experiences from past releases and gigs have been infused into what we regard as our best work to date. We can’t wait to celebrate this album with you all in person.”
Escapades is the group’s most refined and artistic work yet, landing #3 on AIR’s Australian Independent Album Chart. Utilising the unique line-up of two bass players and a drummer, The Omnific created an extraordinary mosaic that dances between progressive rock, djent, funk, and synth-driven soundscapes. The record also features Clay Gober of Polyphia as guest bassist on the single Antecedent, which received a colossal reception internationally.
With the young virtuosic band impressively clocking in just under 8 million Spotify streams and 3.5 million YouTube views to date, and following supports of Twelve Foot Ninja, Between The Buried & Me, COG, Intervals, and Ne Obliviscaris; The Omnific will be taking their pulsating performances to new heights for their first worldwide headline dates in support of Escapades.
The Omnific will be joined by Sydney’s progressive metal quintet, Intrøspect (excluding Brisbane). The band’s unique flavour of progressive metal blends heavy riffs, post-rock, djent and ambient influences, reflecting the spiritual extremes of the human experience through sonic treatment.
