The Bird’s Robe Collective presents…

UNITOPIA

For the first time in Melbourne!

Internationally acclaimed progressive rock act UNITOPIA are the only Australian act ever to sign with InsideOut Music - the biggest prog label in the world and home to Spock's Beard, King's X, The Flower Kings, Symphony X, A.C.T., Beardfish, Enchant, Frost, Neal Morse, Transatlantic, Pain of Salvation and more.

The band’s 2010 album “Artificial” was named Best Album by ProgRock.com radio and International Independent Radio (AiiRadio.net), as well as Best Foreign Album and Best Production by ProgAwards in Italy.

The band gained nation-wide exposure in Australia with a segment on 60 Minutes dedicated to their tribute to the Beaconsfield miners through their song “321”. They performed to an audience of 3,000 people at the one-year anniversary memorial in Beaconsfield, Tasmania.

Unitopia have just returned from a successful European headline tour which saw them visit the U.K., Netherlands, Germany and Belgium and will set out on their first Australian tour in September/October 2011, visiting Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

"How does a band get so good?" - PROG magazine (UK)
"Unitopia is world class" - Liveprog.com
"Wherever they are playing, wherever you are in the world. You will not be disappointed" – DPRP

Joining the band in Melbourne are TOEHIDER, ENNIS TOLA and Sydney’s ANUBIS.

TOEHIDER are Australia's most prolific progressive rock act. Led by Melbourne wunderkind Mike Mills (formerly of Template), Toehider began as a one-man project to release 12 EPs in 12 Months. The series concluded in 2010, spawning a Youtube hit for ‘The Most Metal Song Ever’ and fans across the world. In 2011 they will release their eagerly-anticipated debut album through Bird's Robe Records, to be launched on tour with Unitopia. You MUST see this band.

ENNIS TOLA are staples of the burgeoning Melbourne prog scene – founders of Anon Islet records and fresh from sell out shows at the Evelyn earlier this year, they take the next step in a promising career by gracing the massive stage of The Hi Fi.

ANUBIS' classic prog sound has won them a dedicated fan base - their debut album 230503 has earned rave reviews in Germany, USA, Holland and Denmark. The band's second album "A Tower of Silence" will be released on tour with Unitopia through Bird's Robe Records.
