This week ACOLYTE released a very special documentary to the public, taken from the bands first show as a complete unit, the documentary contains close quarter interviews with each member, behind the scenes and special live footage. Shot with a professional 'home video' approach by Gary Robertson of Jarrah Film, the documentary has been making waves both nationally and internationally exceeding all hopes and expectations.
'Then just before Crystal hit the stage the crowd was put under a mesmerising spell by Acolyte led by Morgan-Leigh Brown who delivered a set so powerful and atmospheric that I went straight out and hunted down their music… seriously if you have never seen this band live then you simply must check them out when they play near you sometime soon'
'A sweet symphonic wash heralds the arrival of the mighty Acolyte to the stage as main support. Frontperson Morgan-Leigh Brown certainly commands attention with her full-throated vocal histrionics and extrovert performance, and the band's lengthy, adventurous compositions are ever-compelling, culminating in soaring closer Perceptions. This band is now an absolute mainstay of the Melbourne and Australian rock scene and some new music from them would be embraced'
Acolyte will be bringing their full live show to cities and towns along the East Coast of Australia during March, April & May this year. Hitting the road in support of Crystal Ignite's (former 'Bellusira' front woman) new single release -Everything You Break! Also featuring powerhouse rocker Brad Marr (front man for Melbourne band MASSIVE)!
We are pleased to announce that French based prog publishers, 'Neoprog Magazine' have added ACOLYTE as a feature artist this week, stating that they believe we are a band to watch for 2017! Their team originally reviewed 'Shades of Black' for its release late last year, however have since decided that we are worthy of a full feature & highlight!
