Boat of Doom

Boat of Doom (Sometimes known as Electric Wizard & Pod People Australian Tour 2005) is a tour featuring English doom quartet Electric Wizard and Australian doom metal band Pod People. In the case of the former band it is Electric Wizard's first and for a long time only tour of Australia (Until 2018) as both bands toured the east coast of the country.


In early October 2005 it would be announced not long after a tour of Europe in support of Electric Wizard's fifth studio album We Live that they would tour Australia for the first time alongside long-running Australian doom band Pod People, whom had recently signed to Rise Above Records.[1]

The tour would span for ten shows in nine days, 3 November having an early show at Utopia Records in Sydney and a later show at The Oxford in Wollongong. Pod People would compose a tour diary and document the entirety of it on their homepage at the time. It would also be notable as one of the last tours featuring Justin Greaves on drums before his exit from the band the next year.



A happy couple in Sydney.
