Kvelertak Plus Planet Of Zeus And Blood Command At SWX, Bristol




We are super pleased to be able to announce the rescheduled date for Kvelertak plus Planet of Zeus and Blood Command. ALL ORIGINAL TICKETS FROM THE MARCH 2020 DATE REMAIN VALID. Remaining tickets are now back on-sale.

Four-time Grammy winning Norwegian rock and metal outfit Kvelertak entered 2019 with bigger riffs and an even heavier sound. Previously last seen as the sole support to Metallica on their enormous 2017 European tour, the band returned to kick off 2019 as main support to Mastodon on their European tour, before heading out on their European festival run, incl. Download, Hellfest, Graspop, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, Copenhell, Resurrection, Waken and more.

Now they gear up to headline SWX Bristol in support of their excellent all new album, 'Splid' (Rise Records). Released in February 2020, the Kurt Ballou (Converge) produced album is a stunning collection of melodic and blackened punk, rock and metal, garnering acclaim from across the music press (see below for reviews).

The band conquers every venue they play with their blend of classic 70s rock n roll and Norwegian black metal. Kvelertaks live performances can be summarized as grand, sweaty and goddamn catchy, as witnessed on the aforementioned tours and alongside the likes of Slayer, Ghost, Converge and more.

Greek rock titans Planet of Zeus are no strangers to our city after playing alongside Clutch, before two of their own storming headline shows in 2016 & 18. The band have also toured extensively alongside the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Truckfighters, Red Fang, Monster Magnet and Brant Bjork amongst others, and at UK festivals incl. Bloodstock and Desertfest. Their signature riffs take listeners on a journey throughout the history of heavy music; from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, and Queens of the Stone Age to AC/DC.

Opening the show are Norwegian punk outfit Blood Command. Since the release of their debut album, their catchy hybrid of punk has garnered acclaim and seen them share stages with the likes of Protest The Hero, Leprous, Skindred and Rolo Tomassi and perform at festivals including Download and 2000 Trees.

All the riffs, metal, punk and good times on one bill, not to be missed. Be ready to let loose and throw down with us this spring. We cant wait.
