CALIGULA HORSE – Upcoming Tour announced

Caligula’s Horse, Brisbane’s premier progressive metal outfit, known for their dynamic, soaring soundscapes, heavy melodic intricacy and huge live sound, will be touring a big part of Europe in the summer, and then they will be astounding South African audiences this August, followed by a mini Scandinavian tour in the fall. The South African experience is proudly brought to you by prog metal aficionados Turning Tricks Entertainment, and it’s announced tha the band will be touring their critically acclaimed new album ‘Charcoal Grace’. For Oslo, the concert is organized by FKP Scorpio

Caligula’s Horse has taken ambitious strides with every release, maintaining a course of continual artistic development and reinvention. Formed in 2011, the band garnered critical acclaim for their eclectic and exploratory debut, Moments from Ephemeral City (2011), and its dark, conceptual follow-up, The Tide, the Thief & River’s End (2013). But Caligula’s Horse truly made their mark worldwide with their vibrant and hard-hitting third album, Bloom (2015), the first on prestigious German record label, Inside Out. It was on the back of this record that the group expanded its touring regime beyond Australia, including shows with the likes of Mastodon, Opeth, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Tesseract, and Anathema.

Caligula’s Horse’s fourth album, In Contact (2017), with its grand concept and expansive dynamics, saw the band grow its reach tremendously, packing out venues across Australia, the UK, Europe, and touring the Americas for the first time.

In 2020, Caligula’s Horse released Rise Radiant, an uncompromising exploration of the human experience dressed in vivid musical colour and virtuosic performances. With the release of Rise Radiant, Caligula’s Horse celebrated their highest international chart positions yet.

In January 2024, the band released their 6th studio album Charcoal Grace. Borne of the static hopelessness that the pandemic forced upon the band and, indeed, much of the world, these past few years, Charcoal Grace is an album reckoning with the experiences and outcomes of this time geared, ultimately, towards catharsis – moving towards a more hopeful future.
