/ The Burning Hell
The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. sometimes they are sharing stages with like-minded friends as Jeffrey Lewis or The Wave Pictures.
Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. They are taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.
In its current formation, The Burning Hell has Mathias Kom joined by longtime collaborators Ariel Sharratt (bass clarinet, drums, vocals) and Darren Browne (bass guitar, bouzouki). At the end of their spring/summer tour in June 2017, the trio took a few days with Al Harle at his Big Jelly studio (also infamous RMH Soundman) in Ramsgate due to record the songs of Revival Beach, their eighth full-length album, and their fourth release for Hamburg based BB*ISLAND label. Always restless The Burning Hell are back in the tourvan by end of August, looking forward to a year of new sounds, new songs, and new people to share them with.
