The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of songwriter and ukulele-slinger Mathias Kom. Loosely based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, The Burning Hell has toured back and forth across Canada and Europe since 2007, playing everywhere from festivals to bars to living rooms – and once even a mental asylum in rural France. The band has garnered acclaim for their hyperactive live shows and their caustic yet sincere lyrics, believing as they do that songs about the inevitability of death can also be fun to dance to.
In 2012, The Burning Hell both made AND broke a record: the band recorded their newest album People in Berlin, and later in the summer, they set a new world record, playing ten shows in ten countries in less than 24 hours. But the band isn’t tired yet, and April will see The Burning Hell begin a three month tour in support of People, co-released by Headless Owl, (weewerk), and BB Island, throughout eastern and central Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France. Onward!
