PureGrainAudio and South Africa’s Plug Music Agency are at it again! This time they are bringing out UK prog-rock band Temples On Mars for their first-ever tour in South Africa in 2019!

Formed in 2017, Temples on Mars have been creating big waves in the prog genre and have been support acts for leading bands like Skindred, Devil Sold His Soul, Voyager and Ill Nino. “2018 has been a busy year, with the release of our debut album and a busy live schedule. Only fitting to go full steam ahead into 2019 with a tour of half the bands Motherland, the scene is thriving in SA with amazing local bands and a great amount of international touring acts pulling in.” comments bassist Daz Carikas.

Temples on Mars will be supported on stage by some of South Africa’s finest heavy bands such as Savage Lucy, Lithium, Go The Rodeo, All We’ve Known, Deity’s Muse, Dirty Moonshine and Climate Control. The tour is set to start in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria and end in Johannesburg. Tickets are available via www.plankton.mobi.

Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
