Attention: this is not a drill. British indie-rockers, Alt-J have just announced an Australian tour in support of their upcoming third album, and yes, you did hear correctly… the British trio are coming to Adelaide!
After teasing fans with new music over the past six months, the band recently announced that they'll be dropping their third studio album, Relaxer, on June 2nd. It's Alt-J’s first released since their huge 2014 album, This Is All Yours, which featured singles such as Hunger of The Pine and Left Hand Free.
After touring their album around Europe and the United States later this year, the British Trio will be hitting Australian shores in early December for the first time since 2015. Joining Alt-J will be Los Angeles four-piece Warpaint, for a bunch of all ages shows across the country.
The boys have also just dropped a hauntingly beautiful new track called Adeline, which follows the story of a Tasmanian devil that falls in love with a woman while watching her swim. You can check out the track and the stunning animation below but be weary, it is a tear jerker.
Catch us sobbing when Alt-J take on the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on December 5th. Tickets go on sale Thursday, June 6th - check out Frontier Touring for more tour information and tickets.
