Aussie indie titans The Jungle Giants announce massive tour and banging new music

Jungle Giants

One of Australia's hottest bands, The Jungle Giants have just dropped their new single Trippin Up and a whopping 12-date Australian tour.

It’s hard to think of a bigger Australian success story over the past few years than The Jungle Giants, the Brissie four-piece that go from strength to strength with every irresistibly catchy release and heartwarming live show.

Today, they drop their latest surefire chart-topper, Trippin Up, which is a taste of their upcoming fifth record. It’s set to whet the appetite for their other major announcement, 12 headline tour dates around Australia in some of the country’s best venues from May through June.

“So pumped to be releasing Trippin Up!” lead singer Sam Hales says. “It all began with a dive into some aspects of electronic drum production that were so fun to experiment with. Can’t wait to see that drop live baby.”

With half a billion streams worldwide and hot off the heels of a show-stealing mainstage performance at Laneway Festival, The Jungle Giants are currently jet-setting on a world tour, which will see them unite with fellow indie darlings The Lazy Eyes and AROHA when they touch down in Australia for a major triple-threat tour.

Driven by optimism, creative freedom and a desire to “go weird, go funny, and not be scared,” you can’t resist jumping on the Jungle Giants bandwagon, listen to the latest track here and peruse tour tickets while they last here.
