Avant-garde rock at Whiskey Dick's

A duo that will perform at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon Friday bills itself as “occupying the space somewhere between Portishead, Deftones and Sade.”

La Fin Absolute Du Monde recently completed their first tour of the United Kingdom in support of their third EP, “Descend,” which was released in March.

Production team Social Security set the tone with the lead track of the album, “Leave Me in Detroit,” according to a press release from the band. The track includes “an infectious bass line that is both at odds with and a perfect compliment to the dark sounds of the group,” according to the release.

“Having a team of producers was a big help, as we were able to focus on songwriting and performance, instead of production techniques, while also getting an injection of fresh ideas,” said guitarist Jason Myles.

They’ll kick off their summer tour of the U.S. at the South Shore.

“The duo wrapped up their first U.K. tour in support of ‘Descend’ in April where they traversed the U.K. on buses and public transportation, and are now beginning the Summer leg of their 2013 U.S. tour,” according to the band, which played 130 shows last year using their own car and the occasional truck stop as home base.

“Our first U.K. tour was a great experience and we can’t wait to go back, but at the same time, we’re looking forward to being able to sleep in a car and get free wi-fi at McDonald’s here in the U.S., if you can believe that,” said front woman Chicky in the release.
