Divide and Dissolve AU + Ryong & Eva Tind

Doom metal against the world order

Few bands use their voice and platform quite as powerfully as Divide and Dissolve. Mirroring the brash, bone-crushing potency of their dynamic Drone and Doom music, the formidable Divide And Dissolve carry their fight and ancestors fight forward each and every day, using the power of their performances to draw attention to the ongoing battle against systemic oppression. Using extreme tooth-tingling frequencies, their music is designed to affect people’s bodies and challenge complacency. Opening act Ryong & Eva Tind merge poetry, field recordings and music.

Divide and Dissolve are focused on Indigenous Sovereignty. Takiaya is Black and Cherokee, and Sylvie is Maori. As a duo they released two full length albums, Basic (2017) and Abomination (2018) through DERO Arcade before signing with Invada to release their widely acclaimed third album Gas Lit in 2021, which was hailed Mary Anne Hobbs’ Album of the Year. Scarlet Viney replaces Sylvie Nevill this evening.

A Gas Lit remix EP was released in 2021, including reworkings of Divide and Dissolve’s music by Moor Mother, Chelsea Wolfe and Bearcat. Divide and Dissolve’s new and fourth album “Systemic” examines the systems that intrinsically bind us and calls for a system that facilitates life for everyone. It’s a message that fits with the band’s core intention: to make music that honours their ancestors and Indigenous land, to oppose white supremacy, and to work towards a future of Black and Indigenous liberation. Like its predecessor Gas Lit, Systemic was produced by Ruban Neilson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Divide and Dissolve toured throughout North America and Europe in 2022 supporting Low and performing headline dates and festival appearances and have live shows and festival appearances planned in support of Systemic, including appearances at Supersonic Festival and End of the Road. At this time, due to personal reasons, Sylvie will be stepping back from her duties performing live with the band.

Ryong & Eva Tind
In 2022 Ryong & Eva Tind released ’The World is Yours’ on the label Yegorka. The record follows in the footsteps of Ryong’s previous release “Unbreakable Bonds”, which featured a text spoken by Eva Tind. On the release the two reunite to merge poetry, field recordings and music, offering a meditative and soulful listening experience suggestive of sonic and emotional continuance. The themes explore the complex ties of family, and the bond between mother and child. This will be the second time this material is performed live.’
