Controversial U.K. dark art practitioners AKERCOCKE have announced a special show at the Underworld in London on August 4. This will be the band's much-discussed and previously postponed 10-year-anniversary concert.
Commented the group: "We've decided finally to go ahead and mark the 10th year of the band's existance with a unique show that will feature a lot of unusual material as well as some classic blasters. Older songs that have seldom seen an airing. Some that haven't been heard live for many years or ever. We will be filming the show for an anniversary live album/DVD, to be released later in the year on Goat of Mendes Records." Support for this special event will be provided by KINGSIZE BLUES, TED MAUL and BREEDAPART.
AKERCOCKE's music video for the song "Axiom" can now be found on YouTube. The clip was directed by Erica Herbert of HSI London (NIRVANA, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE). Her surrealist vision is the perfect compliment to AKERCOCKE's brutally beautiful sound. Deemed "a unique and beautiful visual outing" by frontman Jason Mendonca, "Axiom" leaves the realm of mere music video and enters the realm of pure art.
"Axiom" comes off AKERCOCKE's latest release, "Antichrist". Rated a 9 in Decibel magazine, "Antichrist" is yet another step forward in AKERCOCKE's ever-evolving journey into darkness.
