Lamb, the UK’s finest trip-hop duo excited their fans when they signaled an end to their five year hiatus, announcing their reformation in early ’09 for a series of summer festivals and one-off live shows. The Frontier Touring Company is ecstatic to announce the news many have been awaiting: Lamb are back and will perform intimate headline shows in Brisbane and Melbourne this summer.
Lamb took the world by storm throughout the 90s and early 00s, releasing a flurry of albums and singles. Drawing critical acclaim for their unique soundscapes, fusing trip-hop, jazz and drum and bass, Lamb firmly made their mark on the music world through the release of their debut album Lamb
A volatile working relationship led to their break up in 2004, drawing the career of one of the UK’s celebrated bands to a close. Stepping out of the Lamb shadow, Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow forged successful solo careers – Lou as a singer/songwriter, and Andy as a producer.
In 2009 however, their five year break came to an end with Lou and Andy reconnecting and returning to their roots to revisit the source of their musical passion, which has allowed a legion of loyal fans the opportunity to see their heroes live on stage again.
It has been six years since Lamb performed on our shores as part of Australia’s iconic Livid Festival, their headline shows sold out drawing rave reviews from thrilled audience members and critics:
“…ensure that they’re on your list of bands to see before you die… It’s the personal touch which when combined with the emotive music and words leaves you exiting the venue with a warm glowing feeling of knowing you just witnessed something truly special.” – inthemix
Their return this summer is sure to present a similar offering as the band take to the stage rejuvenated, with a renewed sense of passion.
