Hot off the back of their 26 date UK and EU tour, The Faim are excited to bring their show back to the homeland. “We are so excited to finally be on the road in Australia after three very long years! It’s always incredible to get to play some of our favourite venues in our home country and see so many familiar faces that have supported us since the start,” says the band’s own Steven Beerkens. “We can’t wait to play songs from our new album “Talk Talk” live – and, of course, the ‘State of Mind’ tracks we’ve never played before in Australia! Hope to see you there!”

Talk Talk will be available worldwide from Friday July 8. For more information about the band and to secure tickets to their upcoming tour, head here.
