Acclaimed UK trio alt-J, have announced they will return to Australia for two special headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney this October. This surprise visit before their Falls Festival appearances over new years, suggests they will be performing in celebration of their highly anticipated forthcoming second album This Is All Yours, due for released Friday 19 September on Liberator/Infectious Music.
Since the bands arrival back in May 2012 with their debut LP An Awesome Wave, sprouting singles ‘Something Good’, ‘Tessellate’, and ‘Breezeblocks’, the band have been unstoppable, winning the 2012 Mercury Music Prize and taking out the UK’s coveted Ivor Novello trophy, as well as festival performances at Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and many more!
alt-J announced their return in July, with the haunting ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ followed quickly by ‘Left Hand Free’ and most recently the latest single from the soon to be released album ‘Every Other Freckle’.
Incredibly lucky 24-year-old Perth musician Grace, will joining alt-J at both shows. Don’t know who she is? Grace has spent recent months recording with producers Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Sam Spiegel (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and Dann Hume (Alpine) on her upcoming release. Apparently Grace is a name to watch…
