The beloved Brighton trio return to Ramsgate this Summer!
The Physics House Band produce a perfect storm of rock, prog, psych, cosmic, tech metal and jazz fusion. They have earned comparisons to bands as stylistically, geographically and chronologically far-flung as Mahavishnu Orchestra and Mars Volta. They were last seen in Ramsgate supporting Three Trapped Tigers in 2016 – a stormer of a show!
“A super-dense sci-fi mind-fuck of a thing” – Stewart Lee
The Physics House Band create avant-garde compositions that capture everything from jazz to prog to psych to doom-metal, all combined together with a furious energy transcending to their mind-bending live shows. Their recently completed third record explores further into the expanses of intense darkness and light. Soft ambient synths explode into chaotic battles between angular guitars and saxophones. The gentle moments are softer, the intense moments more visceral than ever. This is a band that has to be experienced live.
The bulk of the new record was written over a two week period in a secluded farmhouse turned studio on Start Point, a Devonshire headland located between the English channel and the Celtic Sea. Ideas were stripped back and rebuilt relentlessly over the fortnight until pieces emerged, becoming more chaotic and dense as the cabin fever drew ever closer. This record is a reflection of that time – the madness that comes from such an insular experience, but also the peace and gentleness of being removed from the constant overstimulation of the city.
The Physics House Band have toured performed notable shows with supported the likes of Alt-J, Omar Rorriguez-Lopez, Django Django, Tera Melos, and have gained support from BBC Radio 6 Music, The Needle Drop, The Guardian, The Quietus and more.
