Frontier Touring are pleased to announce the long-awaited national album tour by one of Australia’s finest bands: The Jezabels. The four-piece will return to stages across the country this October, following on from the success of their stunning third album SYNTHIA, released in February 2016 and hailed as their finest effort yet.
The October dates are a welcome return for the ‘My Love Is My Disease’, ‘Pleasure Drive’ and ‘Come Alive’ four-piece, who were forced to cancel a tour six months ago for keyboardist Heather Shannon to continue her treatment for ovarian cancer.
Frontier is thrilled that Heather’s health is back in check, while the band are truly psyched and ready to hit the road once again, performing favourites from earlier albums Prisoner (2011) and The Brink (2014) and now SYNTHIA!
Written and recorded with long-time producer Lachlan Mitchell, SYNTHIA debuted at number four on the ARIA Album charts in February 2016. Australia first fell in love with the band in 2009, when their debut EPs – The Man Is Dead, She’s So Hard and Dark Storm – began their slow burn. Prisoner went on to scoop the Australian Music Prize and set stages ablaze from Splendour in the Grass to Lollapalooza; The Brink and the global onslaught that followed included talked-about live performance slots at Montreal Jazz Festival, Glastonbury, T in The Park, Deichbrand and more.
Joining The Jezabels on the road will be Melbourne’s Ali Barter, who’s been all over triple j airwaves with tracks like ‘Far Away’ and ‘Hypercolour’. The classically trained singer/songwriter has played shows with everyone from The Rubens, The War On Drugs, Cloud Control and Phosphorescent, as well as a slot on 2016’s St Jerome’s Laneway Festival. With a brand new label deal inked with Inertia Music, Ali is currently recording her debut album.
