LIFE IS NOISE is extremely excited to announce the return of Tortoise to Australian and New Zealand shores, this December.

The Chicago instrumentalists will be bringing their genre-defining ‘post-rock’ to Auckland, Wellington, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

After 25 years together—and a seven year break between albums—the quintet have returned with one of their most interesting, intelligent and improvisational recordings to date, The Catastrophist.


Tortoise live is an experience in itself. Utterly entrancing from start to finish, their set is an epic journey. From the devastatingly quiet moments to crushing and emotional highs. Splicing everything from dark energy, stilted beats and cold electronics with jazz, prog, indie and more organic ties—the musical landscape they create is not to be missed.
