Acres returns to Poland after a very successful performance at Casey’s farewell concert. Parting Gift, whom listeners may recognize from March tour of Blood Youth and Tripsitter with a new album, will perform alongside them.
Acres was formed in 2011, and two years later it became recognized thanks to the well-received single The Tallest of Mountains. The band’s trademark is a monumental sound. In 2015, the vocalist changed – Ben Lumber joined the group, who diversified the vocal lines with a greater dose of melody. Live, the band presents a sound full of emotions, sadness and nostalgia. There is a reason why one of the slogans on the band’s shirts is “sad song for sad dudes”.
Parting Gift is a band formed in 2017 on the initiative of Zac Vernon, former singer of Holding Absence. In terms of image, the musicians focused on mysterious aesthetics known from black metal, while musically opting for post-hardcore mixed with indie and shoegaze. The band quickly released a few singles – Be Still, In Mind, Asleep and Vein & Rensing, which gained popularity on Dreambound, and the first months of 2019 brought them a contract with Fearless Records and their debut EP Ensom.
Tripsitter started in 2014 in Innsbruck, Austria, drawing on a handful of black metal, shoegaze and hardcore to create a unique sound on this basis. Located in cool, unfriendly mountainous areas, the village is surrounded by charming landscapes, which had a significant impact on the style of the group.
