Mammoth Mane Stage says
Tuka – one third of acclaimed hip hop heroes Thundamentals – have just released his third solo album - “Life Death Time Eternal”. In addition to his appearance at Splendour In The Grass 2015, the acclaimed Australian rapper and songwriter also announced a string of national tour dates for October & November during which fans will be able to hear songs from L.D.T.E performed live. Wanna see him at the Mammoth, follow the below link to buy your tickets now!

Tickets (on sale from Thursday, July 16):

Remarkably, the LDTE Tour is Tuka’s first ever Headline run. No stranger to the stage as a solo artist though, he supported Kendrick Lamar on his debut Australian tour in 2012 and has also toured Nationally with local legends Seth Sentry and Illy as well as the nationwide Groovin The Moo Tour in 2013. More recently Tuka joined Horrorshow on their ‘Listen Close Tour’ which saw both bands play stripped and acoustic arrangements of their material and Tuka showcase some of the material from LDTE for the first ever time. For this run though, Tuka is taking things to a whole new level, touring with a full band to bring his new album to life in a live capacity.

Recorded over a nine month period and aided by co-producers Countbounce (of TZU fame), Alex Hope, Nic Martin and his Thunda mate Poncho on various tracks, L.D.T.E is an album invokes a certain feeling of fearlessnesses that could almost suggest that this is Tuka’s debut rather than his third solo offering. You can sense it instantly in the cinematic opening of the title track, the simmering R&B of ‘Tattoo’ and the digital rap beatdown of ‘Yeah Right’. As its title suggests it explores some pretty epic themes. On the opening title track, Tuka contemplates life, religion and his own spiritual path, while ‘My Star’ channels a touching tribute to his future child to come. Elsewhere, ‘Everything’ busts the hip hop myth of gold chains and grandeur, a sharp contrast to ‘You’, which plays with the animal attraction in us all over an unashamedly sexy jam.
