Canadian garage-pop oddballs The Burning Hell are known for tour schedules as densely packed as their lyrics, and they’re certainly no strangers to adversity on the road, having completed an unofficial world-record-breaking tour of ten shows in ten countries in 24 hours, and in a more typical year playing everywhere from Belarus to the Yukon to the Faroe Islands to far above the Arctic Circle in Norway.
Based in Newfoundland, The Burning Hell is led by songwriter Mathias Kom and currently features multi-instrumentalist collaborators Ariel Sharratt and Jake Nicoll. 2022 will see the release of the band’s latest album Garbage Island on You’ve Changed Records in Canada and BB*Island internationally, supported by tour dates in Canada, the UK, and Europe.
Over a varied musical career, The Burning Hell have remained idiosyncratic and unclassifiable, much to the delight of those who love them. Although musical style and influence differs from record to record, the constant has always remained Kom’s singular outlook on the world: wise and naive, cynical and life-affirming, full of brilliant, unexpected narratives and a deeply felt generosity of spirit. The band’s live performances underscore these themes: they exhibit a joy and camaraderie too infrequently seen on stage. Indeed, the essence of the band is inclusive and celebratory; whether on stage or on record, there’s something for everyone.
