Melbourne indie / alt duo success-story Big Scary have just announced a national Australian tour for October this year.

After the false start last year for a tour celebrating 2021’s Daisy, Big Scary now announce a broader run of shows this October which will see them turning things back to the start and perform songs from their extensive catalogue as a two piece for the first time since 2013. Since their last headline tours involved three extra musicians, Tom and Jo will totally reimagine these songs for the stage.

The band were unable to reschedule those COVID-cancelled dates because Jo had a baby in November, but with the state borders now open, Tom and Jo have booked a full run of shows.

Freshly nominated for the Best Independent Pop Album AIR Award, Big Scary’s latest album Daisy features the singles ‘Get Out!’ and ‘Bursting At The Seams’. A feature album on Double J, Daisy had critics and fans joyful at the band’s return. Along with songs from Daisy there’ll be many more favourites from their lengthy back catalogue, including Vacation (2011), 2013 AMP-winner Not Art, and Animal (2016).

And for those paying attention, the duo say there’ll be an exciting surprise before the curtain rises…cryptic, huh?
