Desertscene in association with Bad Vibrations are proud to announce the truly unique Here Lies Man will be coming to The Garage, London on 8th November.
Los Angeles based Here Lies Man turned many a head last year with their self titled debut; and rightly so. Mixing fuzzed-out riffs and distortion with afrobeat to create an unmistakable tone catchier than a bag full of fishing-hooks. It's an album so killer from start to finish that you'd be hard pressed to single out any one track as a highlight; the album itself is the highlight, oozing with a vibrant energy unmatched in the heavy scene.
In 2018, Here Lies Man have followed up that stunning debut with their second full length, You Will Know Nothing (released June 15th), an album which diverges in part from their eponymous introduction; sonically thicker, yet still drawing from the rhythmic clout borne from the cradle of civilisation, it's another must listen experience which we are confident is going to draw the entirety of The Garage into a kinetic trance.
Support for the night comes from the utterly bizarre but unquestionably catchy Snapped Ankles. Possessed by the woodwose (an ancient wild man of the forest), Snapped Ankles fully embrace their frantic flora persona both musically and aesthetically. Signed to the not at all inappropriate Leaf Label, 2017's Come Play the Trees, the band's debut album presented an experience brimming with proto-krautrock of the most experimental kind; simply put, they're not to be missed.
With two absolutely inimitable bands on show, it's going to be a grooved out night at The Garage on November 8th. You will know nothing quite like the double teaming of Here Lies Man and Snapped Ankles. Book your tickets today.
