Hor­ror­show com­ing to Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

AUSSIE hip hop has never been in bet­ter shape than it is now and one its finest pro­po­nents is headed to Airlie Beach for a mas­sive one night only show.

Hor­ror­show are a hip hop duo from Syd­ney, Aus­tralia, com­prised of Solo (vo­cals) and Adit (pro­ducer). In eight years they’ve re­leased four stu­dio al­bums, sold-out nu­mer­ous tours and cul­ti­vated one of the most loyal and ded­i­cated fan bases in the coun­try.

They’ve achieved just about ev­ery­thing there is to do in the Aus­tralian mu­sic scene. Nom­i­nated for ARIAs, get­ting a song in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and play­ing with the likes of Aussie hop hop kings Hill­top Hoods and Bliss n Eso, th­ese boys know what they’re do­ing on a stage.

Emerg­ing in 2008 with an al­bum largely cre­ated in high school, Hor­ror­show signed to Ele­fant Traks and re­leased de­but al­bum The Grey Space. It re­ceived im­me­di­ate in­dus­try recog­ni­tion with an ARIA nom­i­na­tion and a run of

sup­port slots on na­tional tours.

A year later they re­leased In­side Story, so­lid­i­fy­ing their rep­u­ta­tion for elo­quent lyri­cism and soul­ful pro­duc­tion, their mu­si­cal ma­tu­rity de­fied their young age. Their hon­esty and mu­si­cal in­ge­nu­ity amassed a fast grow­ing le­gion of pas­sion­ate fans and saw them ven­ture for their first Euro­pean shows.

By 2011, they’d be­come the go-to act for the big­gest tours in the coun­try, sup­port­ing the likes of the Hill­top Hoods and Bliss n Eso, as well as es­tab­lish­ing their own rock solid live rep­u­ta­tion.

Ev­ery head­line show they’ve ever done in their home­town has sold out.

Their third al­bum, King Amongst Many, dropped in 2013 and landed at num­ber two in the ARIA charts, go­ing on to be nom­i­nated for the J Award, ARIA Award, and a short­list­ing in the Aus­tralian Mu­sic Prize.

In the mid­dle of 2014, Hor­ror­show, as part of the One Day col­lec­tive, re­leased Main­line. It de­buted at num­ber two on the ARIA Chart, and the crew toured na­tion­ally. At the same time, their One Day Sun­days par­ties ex­panded na­tion­wide be­com­ing one of the most pop­u­lar events in the coun­try.

Be­fore be­gin­ning work on al­bum num­ber four, Hor­ror­show re­turned to re­work their live show into an acous­tic per­for­mance, sell­ing out the na­tion­wide ‘Lis­ten Close Tour’. .

Al­bum num­ber four, Bardo State, was re­leased on Fe­bru­ary 24 and their sub­se­quent tour has Airlie Beach in its sights next.

Don’t miss them when they hit Mag­nums Ho­tel for one night only.
