Event description

Description

We lost our drummer and best friend Nath last year. Just after releasing our debut record The Dank, of which Nath performs some of the best drum work of his all too brief life here with us.

After much deliberation and grieving together, Mike and myself have decided it is appropriate to get on stage again as Dr. Colossus and play these songs again. For Nath, and for those who loved him.

Nath's dear friend Josh Eales whom grew up on a kit alongside Nath (I've even seen them drum together side by side at a party once) will be playing the drums. We will also be joined by my brother Joel on lead guitar. Joel and myself played in our first band together with Nath about 100 years ago and I think it will be important to have some family in the band. He is also the best guitarist I know.

These shows are a thank you to everyone who has reached out to us, supported us, and helped us through this rough period. The love and compassion we have received from the community, local and abroad has been amazingly overwhelming and we want to thank you in the best way we know how...playing outrageously heavy riffs and singing dumb songs about The Simpson.

These shows are also a release. A chance to get together, to remember and talk about Nath and the good times he gave, to listen to the music he created. To laugh, cry, grieve and to love.

Any profit will go towards Nath's wife Kate's 'Trek For Kindness' raising funds for a charity close to Nath and Her heart, Edgar's Mission
