Take two of Australia’s finest new band’s shake n rotate and you have The Immaculate Confection tour.
Brisbane’s tasty effervescent Yves Klein Blue and Sydney’s sweet astutely pop The Holidays will be touring the nation throughout October.
Yves Klein Blue’s clashy blend of classic pop, old punk, polka inspired ditties and indie rock have been gracing the airwaves and live audiences throughout 2008 with the EP “YVES KLEIN BLUE DRAW ATTENTION TO THEMSELVES” released through Dew Process. They recently played SxSW and Splendour In The Grass and have supported international bands such as The Fratellis (UK) and Tokyo Police Club (Canada) as well as a heap of others. This will be their last tour before they release their much anticipated debut album next year.
The Holidays athemic pop singles “Holiday” and “Telephone” picked up international play from self-titled EP released early 2008 through Liberation and saw them touring throughout the year with international bands such as The Wombats (UK) and Light Speed Champion (US) and festival appearances at Playground Weekender and Come Together Festival. The Holidays will be releasing new EP in October.
This double headline tour will see both bands rotating with a local opening support in each city. Something this delicious can’t be missed.
Cupcakes and other baked goods may be making appearances at each venue for early bird gig lovers!
