We’re excited to be promoting The Burning Hell’s debut appearance in Leeds!
The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of songwriter and ukulele-slinger Mathias Kom. Loosely based in St John’s, Newfoundland, The Burning Hell have toured back and forth across Canada and Europe since 2007, playing everywhere from festivals to bars to living rooms – and once even a mental asylum in rural France. The band has garnered acclaim for their hyperactive live shows and their caustic yet sincere lyrics, believing as they do that songs about the inevitability of death can also be fun to dance to.
In 2012, The Burning Hell both made AND broke a record: the band recorded their newest album, People, in Berlin, and later in the summer, they set a new world record: playing ten shows in ten countries in less than 24 hours. But the band aren’t tired yet, and 2015 will see The Burning Hell continue to tour in support of People, co-released by Headless Owl, (weewerk) and BB Island, throughout Canada and Europe. Onward!
For their debut appearance in Leeds, The Burning Hell will line up as a duo in the Brudenell’s Games Room.
Tour support comes from Susie Asado. Berlin-based Susie Asado moves bare-boned and mischieviously in the sonic ether somewhere between the alternate realities of Tom Waits and Patti Smith. At the heart of the band is Josepha Conrad, who fills the silences in the minimalist arrangements of bass, ukulele, violin and clarinet with her wry, intelligent lyrics. Susie Asado brings levity to their darkness and depth to their playfulness, existing at the point where avant garde meets folk and poetry meets pop. Susie Asado’s new album State of Undress will be released on the 21 August, with the title track preceding it on 26 June.
This show is a co-promotion with Please Please You and the Brudenell.
