THE AVALANCHES AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2021

Secret Sounds is thrilled to announce The Avalanches will be playing Sydney and Brisbane shows in April & May!

Witness the duo’s shimmering and elevating live show as they take over Brisbane’s Riverstage on Friday 30 April and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Thursday 27 May, leading you on a cosmic journey through their latest masterpiece, We Will Always Love You.

One of the most anticipated albums of last year, We Will Always Love You, builds on the sample-based approach of The Avalanches’ classics Since I Left You and Wildflower whilst stepping boldly into new terrain. The album, released on 11 December, was described as “A vibrant cosmic journey like no other, and a love letter to the unifying power of music” by NME and recently took out the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize. We Will Always Love You moves beyond the party-up exuberance of The Avalanches’ youthful music to a tender and reflective sound that is sure to mesmerize live.

Since their ground-breaking debut, Since I Left You in 2000, The Avalanches have remained at the top as one of Australia’s most distinctive and influential acts. The record quickly became recognised as a modern classic and was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world, it was placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time.

Although not released for 16 years after their debut, the act’s sophomore album, Wildflower, was also released upon the world with a bang! Debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016, the record earned six ARIA Award nominations and international acclaim.

We Will Always Love You follows on this trajectory. As with the previous records, sampling remains at the core of The Avalanches’ latest release but this time with more living guests than ever. Featuring the likes of MGMT, Rivers Cuomo, Denzel Curry, Johnny Marr, Neneh Cherry, Perry Farrell, Karen O, Mick Jones, Sampa the Great, Tricky, Kurt Vile, Blood Orange and more, We Will Always Love You drips with melody and feels like a reunion of old friends – mellow, warm, all hugs and nostalgic stories.

So gather your nearest and dearest and get ready for a vibrant evening spent exploring the vibrational relationship between light, sound and spirit with one of the country’s most iconic acts.
