Just days away from the release of their highly-anticipated debut album Hope Downs – out Friday June 15 via Ivy League Records – Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever today announce their biggest headline tour to date. The huge Hope Downs World Tour will see the Melbourne outfit traverse the globe across four months playing to fans in Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK and Europe and will include sets at Lowlands (Netherlands), Pukklepop (Belgium) and Green Man (UK), with more to be announced.
In celebration of the news, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have dropped a surprise cut from their album in the form of closing track, ‘The Hammer’ to follow the already stellar tracks ‘Mainland’, ‘Talking Straight’ and ‘An Air Conditioned Man’ we’ve so far been treated to.
The band will kick off the Australian leg of their world tour at Brisbane Festival on Thursday Sept 27, before playing to fans in Sydney, Wollongong, Perth, Adelaide and Geelong, finishing in their hometown of Melbourne on Saturday Oct 13 at the Corner Hotel. The tour will be the first Australian shows since their sold-out ‘Mainland’ Tour in April. Tickets for the Australia shows go on sale at 10.00am this Friday June 8 – with sell out shows across their last tour, fans should act quickly to avoid disappointment.
