Renowned for their high-energy, out-of-this-world live show, this huge headline tour will be a very welcome homecoming after a huge year playing shows across the UK, Europe and the US, Jordy, Connor, Angus, and Vince have invited the very best local talent to join them on the road including The Moving Stills, Death by Denim, Mim Jensen (NZ), Aleksiah, Lola Scott and Betty Taylor plus many more.

Out now, the new single Speedracer captures the essence of the band’s eclectic fusion of genres and proves again the band’s perfected knack for engaging story-telling. “In reference to the 1967 anime and 2008 film, “Speedracer” is the person that sends your heart racing at 1000 miles per hour without a second thought.” The dynamic interplay of funky basslines, driving percussion, and vibrant synth textures create a mesmerising sonic landscape reminiscent of the Talking Heads’ experimental spirit and proves again the breakthrough act’s knack for story-telling.

Speedracer is the first we’ve heard from the four-piece since the release of their Midnight Driving EP (featuring fan favourites Hey, Diego!, Exit Sign and Hottest 100 debut track Teddy) that charted at #2 in the Australian Album Charts, and at #28 in the ARIA Album charts. The band took the new music on a huge tour across Australia & New Zealand playing to sold-out crowds before hitting the road again with Groovin The Moo 2023.

Playing as special guests with good friends Lime Cordiale on their recent UK/ EU headline tour, the band will kick off their own run of headline shows across the UK before heading home for a few days to make their Splendour In The Grass debut in July.
