The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of songwriter and ukulele-slinger Mathias Kom. Loosely based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, The Burning Hell has toured back and forth across various continents 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.
“He’s our Randy Newman and Cole Porter rolled into one, with one eye on the coming apocalypse and another on the neck of his ukulele.” – The Globe and Mail, CA
“Lyrics are the thing for Newfoundland-based songwriter Mathias Kom, his sixth album houses some extraordinary stories, not least the word-heavy “Amateur Rappers” – Alastair McKay, UNCUT
THE BURNING HELL PLAY THE RAINBOW BIRMINGHAM ON SUNDAY 13TH DEC 2015, WITH SUPPORT FROM SUSIE ASADO. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
