Kodiak Empire’s six-date ‘Hakbah’ tour will kick off supporting none other than Aussie prog stalwarts COG, who broke from hiatus in early 2016 and proceeded to sell out shows around the country, at Brisbane’s Eaton’s Hill Hotel on Saturday 8th April.

The quintet will then captivate audiences in Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, and Melbourne, before rounding off the tour with an electrifying hometown show at Foundry Records on Saturday 29th April.

“Take a prog-rock backdrop, add some post-rock, metal, and some technical outbursts, and [EP ‘Silent Bodies’] serves up a concoction of instrumentally sound music with a mature and dignified flair.” (Echoes & Dust, UK)

“The Australian quintet have wedged themselves nicely in the Venn diagram crossover between prog and alternative. They masterfully combine the complex with the coherent, the unpredictable with the predictable. Their songs feature reckless musical abandon, but the listener is never left out in god-knows-where-land.” (Fecking Bahamas)
