|Perth’s global gallivanters Tame Impala are fresh back from their virgin voyage around the USA in time to announce their Spring Australian Tour.
Since the recent release of their debut record, Innerspeaker, there’s been no rest for the Perth four-piece, who walked off the stage of their last Australian show and onto a jetplane bound for the states.
In the US they supported MGMT at a slew of sold out shows everywhere from Santa Cruz to Salt Lake City and played sold out headline shows of their own in NYC, LA and Chicago.
Their record was released internationally to a most excellent reception from the press, with Pitchfork Media awarding Innerspeaker “Best New Music” status and an 8.5 score, while The Fader called their debut album “a glorious haze of echo-heavy, dreamy psychedelic rock”.
The 2nd and current single from Innerspeaker is Lucidity. A tearaway, road tripping highlight from the record, Lucidity showcases Tame Impala at their unhinged, shredding best.
By all accounts this trip Tame Impala are on will not be stopping anytime soon, with Splendour In The Grass acting as their homecoming, a European jaunt just over the horizon, this immense October tour and an encore lap of the US mooted for late in the year.
Tickets are on-sale Thursday July 22, and as a special offer to live show fans the ‘Innerspeaker’ album will be available to bundle in digital or physical version with each to ticket to the upcoming tour.
