In March 2020, Canadian garage-folk oddballs The Burning Hell are coming to Australia for the first time, playing the Port Fairy Folk Festival and the Blue Mountains Music Festival, and squeezing in a Melbourne gig at Bar Open in between - with support from Melbourne-via-Hobart indie pop band The Sunday League and local emo geeks Uncle Ben's Last Words. Over the last ten years and almost as many albums, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell have changed often, but the band has remained idiosyncratic and unclassifiable—much to the delight of those who love them. The constant has always remained Kom's singular outlook on the world: wise and naive, cynical and life-affirming, full of brilliant, unexpected narratives and a deeply felt generosity of spirit. The band's live performances underscore these themes: they exhibit a joy and camaraderie too infrequently seen on stage. Indeed, the essence of the band is inclusive and celebratory; whether live or on record, there's something for everyone. As Tom Robinson of BBC Introducing said about The Burning Hell, "even Jesus is going to enjoy this, once he finally gets here."
