The Wiltern | Los Angeles, California
Mammoth jams of animalistic proportions are coming your way this January 7 at The Wiltern as the progressive pop rock band The Sound of Animal Fighting brings their rock tunes to the famous Los Angeles venue. The eccentric rock band will sport their iconic animal masks and bring the element of mystery while performing their hit songs, such as "Another Leather Lung," "Act I: Chasing Suns," "Skullflower," and "The Heretic," among many others. If you are a fan of the experimental noise rock collective and the mysticism behind the band, this show is for you. Grab your tickets by clicking the "Get Tickets" link.
The Sound of Animals Fighting is the rock supergroup you will surely like. As peculiar as the band name, the members are unrecognizable, wearing cheap children's animal masks. The band constantly changes members or growing numbers, with a lineup that reaches twelve performers. All members hold the stage names of the masks they wear. This publicity stunt works well.
The mystery attracted the curiosity of the internet, which led to Rich Balling of the band Rx Bandits being discovered as the founder of the eccentric rock band. Listeners are left to speculate about the identities of the other members. Their first album, "Tiger and the Duke," was unconventionally recorded, which resulted in beautiful and chaotic compositions. Their second album, "Lover, The Lord Has Left Us," was more successful than the first. While this album features improvisations, it is more structured than the first. The third album, "The Ocean and the Sun," featured the four prominent members of the first and second albums, under the monicker the Nightingale, the Walrus, the Lynx, and The Skunk. After 15 years, the band will be releasing an EP with the name "Apeshit."
Part of the release is a support tour, which will be the fourth in their career. One of the stops of this rare tour will be at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday, January 7, 2023. Supporting this once-in-a-blue-moon concert are the bands Concrete Castles and Record Setter. Concrete Castles is an indie rock band from Pennsylvania, best known for their song "Thrill." On the other hand, Record Setter is a rising band praised for their musical versatility. They are known for the songs "Some Place and "plain english." Get tickets now!
