Electric Wizard Are Coming to Australia for Dark Mofo

The stoner doom gods are playing one show in the dead of winter for MONA's festival of sex and death.

Metal's lords of stoner doom Electric Wizard are coming to Australia for one Dark Mofo-exclusive show this June. The legendary UK four-piece will be bringing their slow, crushing acid metal to Hobart on Thursday June 21 at the Odeon Theatre. Electric Wizard's last Australian tour was in 2005. Since then, they've released four albums, including last year's Wizard Bloody Wizard.

Dark Mofo 2018 will take place from June 15-24, with a "prelude weekend" occurring from June 8-10. Sign up for pre-sale tickets here. Dark Mofo's full program will be announced 9pm on Friday April 6, with general release tickets on sale April 10. Grab all the details on Dark Mofo's website.

Last year's Dark Mofo lineup included Einsturzende Neubauten, Juliana Huxtable, Mogwai, LE1F and Gaika.
