Tribal psychsters In Zaire are just as confusing to pin down sound-wise as is their origin (Berlin-based but hailing from Italy). The quartet bring the audience into a psychedelic trip through a unique mix of dub-funk rhythms, African percussion, eastern bass guitar melodies, drifting Arabic voices, minimal electronic sounds and not too hidden heavy metal influences.
After their 2013 début album “White Sun Black Sun”, In Zaire returned with “Visions Of The Age To Come”, released on Sound Of Cobra Records in the spring, an eightfold kaleidoscope coming into blissful focus which sees the band dancing feverishly towards the edges of hard rock heritage and psychedelic outlands.
“In Zaire paints in heavy strokes of cosmic fury, running the guitars through enough hardware to find a sound that befits the universe collapsing in on itself” - Raven sings the blues
“[At Liverpool psych fest] In Zaire melted a few brains with their fuzzy space-prog, packed with groove and epic guitar voyages” - Get into this
“In Zaire have put together an album that is dark in a way that avoids many of the clichés that a number of other ‘dark’ bands are currently falling into.” - Psych Insight Music

Supporting tonight we have ATATAT who is the stage name of Joel Barbara who plays in Scouse three piece electro noise band Barberos. Drumming live, he batters out a barrage of complex polyrhythms over cosmic drones and soundscapes. Check out what to expect:
Also performing we are pleased to have Chicxulub doing dark drones and primitive drums. This new project from Flowers Must Die's Rickard Daun is combining several repetitive rhythms to eventually create new rhythms or disjoint them. Chicxulub is the name of the project and also the place where the asteroid hit earth which led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
