Litmus ARE spacerock for the 21st century. A collection of throbbing bass, pounding drums, searing guitar, swirling keyboards and screeching electronics, they are here to open heads and recalibrate minds. Live shows are an audio-visual extravaganza of projections, images and sounds, all taking the audience on a journey to the far reaches of both outer and inner space.
Litmus have supported Hawkwind, Space Ritual, the Ozric Tentacles and Arthur (The God of Hellfire) Brown. In January 2005, they were the tour support for Julian Cope on his UK tour. They played in 2002 and 2003 at Hawkwind's Hawkfest festival (appearing twice in 2003!) and have appeared twice at the legendary Roadburn Festival as well as supporting Space Ritual, American stoner rockers the Atomic Bitchwax and the amazing Witchcraft on London dates. They have also played at festivals across the UK and Europe.
Their debut CD "You Are Here", released on Space Music, has received massively positive reviews from, among others, Julian Cope, the Organ, Aural Innovations, Head Heritage, Live 4 metal and Terrorizer Magazine.
The band's second CD "Planetfall" was released on Rise Above Records in April 2007 to great reviews from the music press, including Rocksound, Kerrang, Metal Hammer and Terrorizer.
The third album "Aurora" is due for release in August 2009, again on Rise Above Records, and is already receiving excellent reviews.
A massively powerful live presence, Litmus need to be seen to be believed!
