There’s an explosion of Aussie tours coming up

February 5, 2018

Try to remain calm – but if you’re a fan of Aussie music then you’re in for an absolute treat these next couple of months!

With the stellar line-up for Groovin the Moo recently announced, Sydney City Limits looming upon us, and murmurs of potential artists to fill the Splendour in the Grass bill, there are plenty of new festivals to get excited about.

But if you’re more of a gig person and enjoy more of an intimate artist experience, then strap yourself in as some of the best Aussie talents are coming to a town near you…

Middle Kids

Everybody’s favourite indie kids, Middle Kids, have been going nowhere but up these past 12 months, and have just announced their widely anticipated debut album Lost Friends and a bunch of headline shows.

The Sydney trio rose to fame for their tunes ‘Edge of Town’ and ‘Never Start’, which appeared on their self-titled debut LP and you can expect to see these songs plus plenty more on their new debut album.

After supporting huge indie bands The War on Drugs, Gang of Youths AND Paul Kelly, it’s impressive to see this outfit headline big shows in Sydney and Melbourne, so make sure to lock the dates in your diary and secure some tix, stat.

DZ Deathrays

Whilst Middle Kids are the new kids on the block, Brisbane duo DZ Deathrays are true veterans of the Aussie rock game. After returning in 2017 with their huge single ‘Shred for Summer’, they have announced a new album for 2018 and – you guessed it – an all Aussie tour!

After revealing last month that they’ll be opening their own pop-up bars (with DZ Deathrays branded beer, of course), DZ will be hitting the road in May in support of Bloody Lovely, their third studio album.

With shows announced all over the country and support from local rockers Clowns, These New South Whales and Boat Show, don’t miss this chance to jump in the mosh and move your body to some tunes!

San Cisco

With good news can come sad news, and this is the case with the announcement of the San Cisco regional tour. The indie pop four-piece will be coming to your local town, but without Nick Gardner, who has departed the band. Crying reacts only 

But the show must go on, and the tour will be going full steam ahead with Fremantle bassist Jennifer Aslett filling into the role. After appearing at Beyond the Valley and Lost Paradise the last couple of months, this killer act will also appear at the newly formed The Drop festival as well as their headline tour. So there’s no excuses to not see them live!

The Jungle Giants

We can’t say we’re saving the best till last, but it’s no secret that The Jungle Giants are hot property atm.

After the release of their third album Quiet Ferocity in 2017, the Brisbane indie crew toured extensively off the back of their LP and recently received the honour of four songs from the album placing in triple J’s Hottest 100 – a very impressive feat.

The 2018 tour comes in support for their latest single ‘Used To Be In Love’, and will see them hit up regional and capital city centres. Plus, you’ll get to see producer Alice Ivy and Perthian Evan Klar in support… what more could you want?!
