This week the highly anticipated Cult Leader and LO! tour kicks off on Wednesday night in Brisbane at the Crowbar for what some are calling the heaviest gig of the year.
This also marks the first time Cult Leader have toured Australia and with the success of their latest album 'A Patient Man' you can guarantee that the gigs are going to be phenomenal and not to be missed.
In the lead up to the tour Nev Pearce spoke to LO! frontman Sam Dillon about his own admiration for Cult Leader and their previous band Gaza, how he balances his time between Lo! and Hadal Maw and what they have planned for the rest of the year.

Lo!'s 3rd full length album VESTIGIAL was released in 2017 to rave reviews.
The band have toured internationally and shared stages with bands such as Anaal Nathrakh, The Black Dahlia Murder, Amenra, The Ocean and are hailed as one of the best live acts in the country.

w/ guests LO!
Few musical acts are capable of exhibiting the sheer depth of emotional terror that Cult Leader possess - let alone in such a savage, and unrelenting manner of expertise. Terms like ‘extreme metal’ and ‘crust punk’ are hurled their way, yet when immersed in their thoughtful ferocity, and diametrically opposed moments of pained quiet, one might think they are best left described as simply being ‘chaotic’. Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, and formed in 2013 from the death of their prior and highly revered band Gaza, Cult Leader have to date released four records under the Deathwish Inc. label, with 2018’s ‘A Patient Man’ no doubt their crowning achievement. The four piece has toured the northern hemisphere with such acts as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Deftones, Converge, Oathbreaker and more, and April 2019 will finally see the band visit Australia for the first time ever. With tours in support of Amenra and The Ocean under their belts, like-minded Sydney outfit Lo! will join them on all dates.
