KRUELTY (japan) Australia / New Zealand tour February 2023

Self-proclaimed “disgusting music”, five-piece KRUELTY hail from Tokyo, Japan, and have been steadily building their profile through non-stop activity since forming in 2017. Several singles, demos, splits, and EP releases paved the way to 2020s absurdly heavy full length debut ‘A Dying Truth’, while the acclaimed split release with Terminal Nation ‘The Ruination of Imperialism’ followed up soon after in 2022. With their fresh but decayed sounding combination of death/doom metal and hardcore punk having already turned heads through tours all over the USA and Asia, the band prepares to release their Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, God’s Hate) produced second album ‘Untopia’ in March through the esteemed underground metal institution that is Profound Lore Records (Portal, Bell Witch, Pissgrave). It’s finally Australia’s turn to witness the filth this February, with the band supporting Newcastle bruisers Honest Crooks all across the East Coast, and now some headline dates of their own.
