Pond Frontman Nicholas Allbrook Announces Co-Headline Dates With Peter Bibby

Monday, 10 September 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Nicholas Allbrook and Peter Bibby will hit the road together later this month.

The Australian artists will link up for a string of dates, beginning at the Victoria in London on September 26, followed by stops in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester. Discussing their tour together, Allbrook, who used to play drums in Bibby’s band, said:

"Peter Bibby is one of my best friends. He is a rascal and a scoundrel. He can plaster a wall and drive a Long Paul van across Australia and back better than you can scratch yourself. He writes beautiful songs. When we lived in Melbourne together we'd sit on the porch and smoke. I'd make a jug of Julep and we'd play songs at the garden. Once we did a gig at the playground next to Northcott Plaza. We were, by turns, the sole audience and performers. He played songs that do that thing where they sound like they've been written and sung a thousand times before but definitely have not. Just pure human anthems vomiting out from the deep. Pete sings with his real voice - snot-vomit Gatorade bong Midland teenager, tragic poetic lover of people nature and art and words and laughs. Especially laughs. Pete sometimes sends me a clown emoji over the seas on a telephone to make me laugh. Sometimes I send him pictures of me looking like a thumb. Pete is a naughty man. A big boy. The biggest boy."

Allbrook has also shared a video accompanying his track, St Pete, which features vocals from Maud Nadal of Halo Maud and serves as the first solo material from the Pond frontman since 2016's 'Pure Gardiya'. Bibby, meanwhile, will release his second album, 'Grand Champion', on September 28 via Spinning Top.

Forming 20 years ago in North Carolina, they emerged just as metalcore and other forms of moody hard rock were beginning to take off. However, they aren't remembered for their contributions to the scene as much as how they subverted its tropes. Drawing from screamo and psychedelic space rock in equal measures, their releases 'No Wings to Speak Of' and 'The Satellite Years' to this day stand up as classics of the genre.

Photo: Paola Baltazar​ Much like prog before it, math-rock hasn't always appeared the most accessible of genres. As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

From Blues Boy To Next Big Thing: The Making of Dan Owen
Thu 23 Aug 2018
It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

Crackling through a speakerphone, Joe Talbot’s voice is calm and level. “I don’t feel any pressure to do anything,” he says. “It’s up to me. I genuinely don’t care what anyone else makes of what I do. It’s up to me to be as honest to myself, and truthful to the band and our art, as possible. The rest is up to you.”

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
