THE BURNING HELL & (weewerk) Presents: FLUX CAPACITOR

2011.04.06

     Lately, THE BURNING HELL has been spending a lot of time thinking about death and time travel, and writing songs about both. Inspired by a high school creative writing teacher telling the class 'write what you know', with FLUX CAPACITOR the Burning Hell's singer, songwriter and ukulele-slinger MATHIAS KOM presents a collection of danceable songs about aging, the late 1980s, big bushy beards and pet euthanasia.  And pirates! 
     Now mostly based in St. Johns', Newfoundland, Mathias is excited to share this newest incarnation of The Burning Hell with the world on a far-ranging album release tour throughout Europe and Canada.
