Pop disruptor Ashnikko (she/they) brings the WEEDKILLER tour to 3Olympia Theatre on 11th December 2023.
Tickets priced from €29.90 including booking fee & €1.50 restoration levy on sale with www.ticketmaster.ie.
Debut album WEEDKILLER is a collection of irresistible songs that perfect the bold, genre-blending sound that has defined Ashnikko’s work to date. However, as Ashnikko fans will know, she is known for transporting listeners into her universe and WEEDKILLER is no exception. The WEEDKILLER universe that Ashnikko has created is a dystopian fantasy that tells the story of a fae civilization occupied and destroyed by machines that feed on organic matter where the faerie protagonist seeks revenge by becoming part machine - a poetic commentary on environmental disaster and the rapid evolution of technology. Full of equal parts naked vulnerability and joyful rebellion, WEEDKILLER gives a thundering voice to the oppressed.
Speaking on the announce Ashnikko states "My bioluminescent heart is glowing. My post-apocalyptic fae world is here for you to journey into. My wings have been ripped out, but I’ve built them anew using WEEDKILLER machine parts. I am the one sent here to eliminate you, WEEDKILLER."
In celebration of her debut album announcement, Ashnikko has released new single ‘Worms’, which despite its bouncy alt-pop beat has a dark undertone. Along with her recent release ‘You Make Me Sick’, these two tracks a new era for Ashnikko as they showcase the breadth of her musical prowess and how they fearlessly shift between genres with ease.
Since asserting herself within the music industry with acclaimed 2021 mixtape DEMIDEVIL, Ashnikko has made her name as one of today’s most innovative alt-pop artists and the announcement of their debut album is sure to set fans minds racing. The 13-track album sees fears and anxieties whether personal or tyrannical, blown up and then broken down.
