O2 Academy Liverpool | Liverpool, EN

LOATHE have announced a show at Liverpool’s O2 Academy this October, with support from Void of Vision and Omerta.
With 2022 having already seen Loathe undertake a colossal US tour supporting Code Orange, the foursome have a packed-out summer ahead as they gear up to play sole support for Glassjaw in London later this month, with performances at Download, Jera On Air and
Outbreak festivals planned, before hitting Australia with While She Sleeps and embarking on another huge US/Canada run with Northlane.
Having previously toured with the likes of Beartooth, Of Mine & Men, Architects, Stray From The Path and While She Sleeps, Loathe thrilled fans on their own headline run in December 2021 as well as with their sets at Reading and Leeds and Slam Dunk.
In the midst of all this live chaos, Loathe are set to return to UK soil to play their headline show in Liverpool this Autumn. Heading to the city’s O2 Academy on Saturday 29th October, Loathe’s raucous and visceral live show will be complemented by support slots from Australian metal four-piece Void of Vision and Texas-based Nu-metal/hardcore hybrid band Omerta.
Loathe have been making waves in the British underground heavy music scene since their formation in 2014. Their 2017 debut ‘The Cold Sun’ put them on the map, landing them nominations for Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods and Best UK Breakthrough Band at the Heavy Music Awards. Their intense, visceral multimedia live show marked them out early as a band with broad ambitions, and they have since graced the covers of Metal Hammer UK, Kerrang! and Gigwise.
Rather than existing within one style or taking one approach, Loathe pepper their music with a range of influences and musical motifs that move fluidly. A band who strive to do whatever they want, they have cultivated a fan base that will follow them down some deep, experimental rabbit holes. That sense of distressing Lynchian esotericism is the territory Loathe are intent on occupying, a world where nothing is quite as it seems, curiosity is rewarded, and nothing is laid out in black and white.
‘The Cold Sun’ was a heady hybrid of meaty down-tuned riffs, lacerating screams and pile-driving rhythms. ‘I Let It In and It Took Everything’ retained all of those elements, albeit delivered with a searing potency and sharpened focus that bettered its predecessor in almost
every conceivable way. The record widened their palette significantly and surprises were plentiful; shimmering guitars, layered synths, unhinged guitar effects, a stronger emphasis on ethereal clean vocals and even elements that echo the sheer sonic brutality that epitomises black metal.
Loathe's latest record ‘The Things They Believe’ surprise dropped in February 2021; an audacious ambient soundtrack album created to accompany a limited edition photobook by Mark Unthank.
These new projects were given impetus by the incredible response to ‘I Let It In And It Took Everything’. ‘The Things They Believe’ extends the complex identity and timeline of ‘I Let It In..’., via sonic landscapes and parallels that explore and expand the record further.
With recent single “Dimorphous Display” released earlier this year, alongside collaboration versions of their track “Is It Really You?” with Sleep Token and Teenage Wrist, Loathe’s latest records ‘The Things They Believe’ and ‘I Let It In and It Took Everything’ are out now via SharpTone Records.
