Following the release of their storming yet stunning new album ‘Entropy’, Acolyte have released a live video for the 11 minute musical pilgrimage ‘Idiosyncrasy’, taken from their recent live stream on Veeps, available for rewatch until 31st August 2021.
Chris Cameron (drums), says this about performing Idiosyncrasy live
“Idiosyncrasy is one of our longer tracks that really goes to another level when we play it live. There are so many dynamic, emotive and intricate sections that feature all members of the band which makes it both a challenge and thrill to play, but on top of that this tune has a deep atmosphere and narrative that really hits home in a live setting. We’re proud to have captured this performance from our recent set at Chapel Off Chapel which we’d like to share as a taste of what we’re planning to take on the road, hopefully very soon.”
Explorative & Progressive Metal act Acolyte says this about the event
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to showcase our live performance at Chapel off Chapel.The prestigious church setting dates back to 1853, known to have hosted many MTV Unplugged sessions as well as an abundance of arts, theatre, cabaret and musical events since its official opening as a venue in 1995. please join us to experience our album exactly as it is meant to be. Tune in to experience us where we belong, on stage.”

Acolyte’s new offering ‘Entropy’ is a confrontationally dark, raw, emotional, conceptual body of work, containing career defining performances from all members and is both crushingly cinematic and timeless in character.
Featuring authentic choir arrangements, extensive analogue synth labs, percussion labs, and a full hoard of Melbourne’s very best classical performers, Acolyte’s ambitious album is one not to be missed in a live setting.
Acolyte’s stunning second studio offering ‘Entropy’ has been brought to life by award-winning producers Prasheen Naran and Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) at Melbourne’s Sing Sing Recording Studios.
