Alithia announced as support for The Contortionist/SikTh national tour

Big News For The Melbourne Post-Prog-Rockers

Fresh from touring Europe and Australia with Norwegian prog heavyweights Leprous, Melbourne seven-piece Alithia are getting ready to hit the road again for The Contortionist and SikTh’s Australian tour this May.

Alithia bring an entirely new perspective to a typical live show, one which has been refined through showcasing their unique brand of psychedelic tribal post-prog rock on four European tours, plus appearances at BIGSOUND and Progfest. They’ll join US progressive metal outfit The Contortionist on tour, with their American counterparts touring in support of their 2017 LP, Clairvoyant.


The Contortionist are also bringing UK djent pioneers SikTh, who returned in 2017 with new album The Future in Whose Eyes?, to Australia for their first ever shows in our country. Check out the tour dates below:
