After 6 years in the making, Armwrestling Atlas is now out through Big Village and The Community Records. A national tour will follow, kicking off in Melbourne and finishing at WA’s Disconnect Festival, with six stops in between.
The release is “a brooding and frank exploration of relationships, loss and Australian identity, the highly anticipated 13-track album has been a personal journey and a labor of love for Mathas, also known as Tom Mathieson, with a good half decade between album releases.”
“Described as one of Australia’s most thoughtful and skilled lyricists, Mathas continues to raise the bar on Armwrestling Atlas exploring themes including indigenous issues, substance abuse, modern consumerism, the food manufacturing industry and emotional development.”
“Esoteric and densely lyrical, Armwrestling Atlas is an impressive achievement” Rolling Stone.
PLUS Mathas is heading off on tour!
