NOMAD / MOWER UK Tour Details



Mancunian underground heroes Nomad have announced a UK tour for this September and are taking relative newcomers Mower with them.

Since forming in 2012, Mancunian sludge four­piece Nomad have shared stages with the likes o EyeHateGod, Conan and Bongripper. Metalheads in the north west of England are under no illusions as to the ferocity of their live shows.

Frontman Drian Nash is known for tempering his confrontational performances with a self­deprecating Manc sense of humour, firmly establishing Nomad at the heart of Manchester’s burgeoning stoner/doom scene. This tour will be an opportunity for riff­lovers from across the UK to see how Nomad have achieved their unrivalled reputation within such a competitive scene in England’s north west.




Their debut EP (released in 2014 by renowned underground label When Planets Collide) was followed by a split EP with Wort released by Red Valley Records the following year.
Nomad frontman Drian: ​"It’s always a blast playing with the Mower guys so this tour should have enough planet­sized riffs and carnage to be lasting us. We are sharing the stage with some of our favourite bands along the way; Elephant tree, Iron Swan and Kurokuma. Also Stoked to get to finish it all off with a huge party in our hometown. That’s if we don’t crash into a mountain in a big ball of fire blasting Toto and sipping cocktails.”

Relative newcomers Mower are a doom/noise trio from nearby Wigan whose debut EP “Meathead”, released at the start of this year, is already turning heads. As a live presence they'll be known by attendees of MammothFest, Tombstones all­dayer and RiffFest as a band not to miss on what will be their first gigs in a number of cities outside of Manchester.


Vocalist Jay says of the tour: “This will be our first tour, and what a way to pop the cherry, making this fine pilgrimage around the U.K, with Nomad! We're all buzzin' to go make some Mower­flavoured noise in other parts of the country. We also get to play some new venues with some other amazing bands, a proper privilege indeed. We shall be providing the White Russians and obscene sexual favours as thanks. Riffs await.”

With such a strong stoner/doom scene in Manchester, this tour will be an opportunity for riff­lovers from across the UK to see how this scene’s stalwarts have achieved their unrivalled reputation alongside with one of the area’s most exciting new prospects.
