The Facemelter at OBL: Polymath, Lost In The Riots, Pocket Apocalypse

  • The Old Blue Last 38 Great Eastern Rd London, Ec2a 2es United Kingdom

A special version of CHAOS THEORY's monthly night The Facemelter. This time in Shoreditch, as a joint venture with epic promotion Old Empire. There is no finer way to spend the eve of Easter bank holiday weekend.

Polymath

Growing stronger with every single release and gig, the Brighton-based trio have blown audiences away at every respectable prog, post-rock and math rock festival and gig in the UK and, after teasing fans with a few online single releases, smashed their crowdfunding campaign to record and release their debut EP on Lonely Voyage Records, who also organised their joint UK/European tour with Lost In The Riots.

Nobody who's ever seen them perform live is in any doubt.

Lost in the Riots

One of the most fun live bands in the math rock scene today. Gradually swaying all of our loyalties with a few single releases, both of their albums 'Stranger In The Alps' and 'Move On, Make Trails' were widely acclaimed and resulted in an immensely successful European tour.

"A wake up call to the Post-Rock Community that a true talent has arrived and are here to stay" - The Sludgelord

"Jam-packed with epic riffs, playful personality, strong musical prowess and excellent sound engineering" - Postrockstar

------------------------
Pocket Apocalypse

Energetic band from Liverpool, fusing delicate melodic post-rock with the playfulness of math rock and occasional hard-biting riffs of stoner rock. After playing numerous gigs including at Newpath and Liverpool Fringe Festivals, it's time to head down south...

"Their vocals and instrumentals put them somewhere in the ballpark of Failure, A Perfect Circle and early Oceansize" - Prog Magazine
