Scott Kelly – of the genre defying progressive doom metal band Neurosis – and John Baizley – of the critically acclaimed progressive metal titans Baroness – are embarking on an Australian first: they’ll be touring as individual solo acoustic artists in which they’ll present material from their vast back catalogues and future releases.

Scott Kelly [pictured] has influenced a whole generation of musicians wanting to take heavy music into new realms of consciousness. Over the years Scott has also been involved with the Neurosis alter ego Tribes of Neurot, Blood and Time, the doom metal super group Shrinebuilder, and as a guest vocalist on Mastodons last four studio albums.

With two solo albums and countless European and US solo tours behind him, Scott Kelly will now finally make his mark on Australia soil, with non other than a acoustic in hand and songbook of 25 + years of experience!

As the axe swinging vocalist, and founding member, of  heavy weights of modern metal Baroness, John Baizley has single handedly rewritten the law book that was once written by the likes of Neurosis, and become the new crowning king of artistically creditable progressive metal. With no solo releases of any respect to preview his material, the only way fans are going to get to hear his solo material will be at these exclusive solo shows.
