Caligula’s Horse, a band at the forefront of Australia’s progressive rock scene, will hit the road for a national tour in October in support of their new album In Contact.

Hailing from Brisbane, Caligula’s Horse is a progressive alternative rock powerhouse. Their unique tapestry of progressive metal laced with raw rock power is at once fluid, monumental, and striking, offering a wide audience a broad palate of unforgettable moments and timeless music.

Their fourth record, In Contact, is an immense conceptual work discussing the nature of art and creativity, a celebration of what connects us as human beings – the shared space across our many differences. Told over four separate chapters, it is an album full of deeply personal stories, characters with their own bittersweet hope and tragedy. This album is yet another leap forward for Caligula’s Horse – steeped in their now-signature ambitious and colourful sound but with a new-found ferocity, In Contact will leave audiences breathless. 


The band are currently on tour throughout Europe, including support slots with Opeth, Anathema and Pain Of Salvation, UK headline shows and festival appearances at Midsummer Prog Festival (Netherlands) and Be Prog! My Friend Festival (Spain). To coincide with the European tour, Inside Out Music reissued the band’s first two albums Moments From Ephemeral City and The Tide, the Thief & River’s End worldwide.

Caligula’s Horse will be in lethally potent live form on return to Australian shores, with their ‘In Contact’ tour seeing them return to all the major cities – after selling out many of them during 2016. Following their recent Australian tours with Opeth and sleepmakeswaves, these will be Caligula’s Horse’s only Australian headline shows for 2017.

Following on from 2015’s globally praised album Bloom, In Contact will bring the music of Caligula’s Horse to more people than ever before. An Australian progressive treasure, and on their way to becoming one of the world’s leading rock acts, don’t miss out on catching the mighty Caligula’s Horse on their ‘In Contact’ Australian tour!

Melbourne progressive instrumental project, I Built The Sky, will be joining Caligula’s Horse on the tour as their special guests. I Built The Sky is the work of one man Rohan ‘Ro’ Stevenson who released his second album under the IBTS name in October 2016 titled The Sky Is Not The Limit and quickly gained the support of media in Australia, and around the world.

After four years as a studio project, I Built The Sky was finally taken to the stage in 2015 supporting Plini before playing a string of big shows in 2016 including; Between The Buried And Me / CHON, a co-headline tour with James Norbert Ivanyi, a performance at Melbourne Guitar Show Main Stage and the opening slot on Ne Obliviscaris most recent tour with German prog masters The Ocean.

In 2017 I Built The Sky took things to the next level by undertaking a successful national headlining tour of Australia, the tour showcased brand new songs with an impressive lineup of musicians including Rob Brens (Hadal Maw), Sam Tan (Artinem) & Stephen Taranto (The Helix Nebula).

With praise such as ‘one of the great instrumental rock/metal records of our time” from Heavy Music Magazine and “outstanding album from a guy who can play guitar better than you ever will” from My Indie Australia, I Built The Sky will be an absolute treat for audiences across the nation as the appetiser to the main course of Caligula’s Horse.
