After making the move to Los Angeles, performing at major venues and festivals like Coachella, and taking the world by storm, the Australian electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL are coming back home on a national tour in support of their third album, Solace.
Currently one of the world’s most prominent live electronic acts, the group will be performing a brand new live show with a strong emphasis on spontaneity and pushing their on-stage abilities to new levels. Along with a revamped visual setup, the tour aims to showcase the magic of the studio process on the stage in a unique and exciting format.
Kicking off the tour headlining at Sydney’s Field Day festival on January 1st, 2019, alongside major acts like Cardi B and Migos, the trio will then play shows throughout February and March. They have two nights at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, before heading to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, the Fremantle Arts Centre in Perth, Margaret River’s Three Oceans Winery and Brisbane’s Riverstage.
The sonically distinct tour accompanies their latest album Solace, which sees the boys pushing the boundaries while exploring heavier themes of pain, loss and the persistence of memory. The album has been described as emotionally intelligent, highlighting a completely different side to the group with their powerful lyrics and rich sounds.
“It’s about finding a sense of hope in a darker time,” the trio says.
“We’ve been through a big process… almost a year and a half of our lives. We put all our heart into making this record.”
Consisting of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, the ARIA award winning group have previously released two platinum-certified albums, ATLAS and Bloom, under the name RÜFÜS.
They have just recently launched their own record label, Rose Avenue, which intends to develop emerging talent and provide a larger structure for the ever-growing RÜFÜS DU SOL family. The first artist signed to the label is Cassian, a Sydney house producer who is currently joining the group on the American leg of their tour.
Tickets for their biggest Aussie tour so far are on sale now.
