Dead Letter Circus‘ Aesthesis album tour just gets bigger and bigger.
This week, Aesthesis is the feature album on triple j, single ‘While You Wait’ is making itself known on days on Triple M and will be making two TV appearances – they are guest-programming Rage this weekend and on Friday, they will be featured on Channel Nine’s Today Show. The album has been pushing the upper eschelons of the charts in it’s first week and is expected to surpass the previous albums’ chart placements.
Today they announce that their touring buddies from the USA, 10 Years, are extending their show run, adding the Bendigo and Geelong shows to their most-of-the-tour run and also hometown Brisbane pals Guards of May are joining the entire run of shows, making it their biggest foray into the national touring market to date.
Dead Letter Circus are announcing their national album tour today this October, presented by triple j, UNFD, New World Artists and Macro Music.
Playing their way across the country in some of their favourite venues, DLC will be showcasing tracks from ‘Aesthesis’ as well as fan favourites from their 100,000+ selling catalogue spanning the last decade. They are also bringing their good friends from the USA, 10 Years on the string of shows from Melbourne onwards. 10 Years have been touring the United States recently with Breaking Benjamin and Nonpoint.
‘Aesthesis’ was given life in early 2015 by the band with Matt Bartlem (Jarryd James, Matt Corby) and Forrester Savell (Helmet, The Occupants) and mixed by multiple Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge. (Muse, Deftones, Green Day, Slipknot, My Chemical Romance). The album is released on Friday August 14 in Australia and New Zealand. The album tour encompasses Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland and takes in iconic venues such as The Forum in Melbourne, The Triffid in Brisbane, The Roundhouse in Sydney, Metropolis Fremantle in Perth and The Governor Hindmarsh in Adelaide as well as regional shows in most states.
Fans who have signed up to Dead Letter Circus’ email list will be granted early access to purchase tickets for the tour on Wednesday August 19 and will open up to the public on Thursday August 20 at deadlettercircus.com. ‘While You Wait’, the first taste of ‘Aesthesis’ was immediately embraced by both fans and triple j, taking over the station for two weeks running in early June as the most played track as well as added to rock radio playlists around the country. The second taste of the album ‘In Plain Sight’ was also added to rotation on triple j and continues to gather support in the lead up to the album’s launch.
New Zealand’s “The Rock” Radio station added ‘While You Wait’ & more recently ‘ In Plain Sight’ in preparation for their recent trip to the land of the long white cloud with home grown heroes I Am Giant. The Dead Letter Circus fan pre-sale will be open from Wednesday 19 August and available to public on Thursday 20 August.
