Darwin metaliers Tapestry are set to play UNIFY Gathering 2020 at the festival’s South Gippsland (VIC) site this weekend and boy-oh-boy are we excited for them!
It has been a hell of a ride for Tapestry (now based in Melbourne) since they first formed in Darwin in late 2014. The young five-piece have had a plan from the start and UNIFY was a milestone they set out to achieve and, through hard work, dedication and good strategy, they can tick that box.
Said Tapestry bassist Connor Askham on social media: “Very very stoked me and these fellas get to play Unify Gathering tomorrow. This has been a massive goal for us since we started this band and it wigs me out it’s happening! For those making their way down I’ll catch you at the festival for a bevy or twenty!”
Stablemate guitarist Darcy Grant echoed this sentiment:”Unify is only a few days out and it’s an absolute dream to be able to play this festival! Can’t wait to see everyone there!” Drummer Ben Masters, a strategist who always has his eye on the prize, gave a bit away when he said: “Ticking off the top spot of my bucket list this Friday. I’ve never been so excited/nervous in my life.” Vocalist & frontman Tom Devine-Harrison put it more succinctly: “This Friday we play on the stage we’ve been dreaming of since it all started. If you’re at Unify pull up for ya boiz.”
We at Foldback Magazine congratulate Tapestry for getting on the UNIFY 2020 ticket and for realising their dream so early in their career. Hard work and quality output is what gets bands to this point, and this UNIFY slot is peer and public recognition that the band has both in bucketloads. WELL.DONE.TAPESTRY.
