Australian East Coast Co-Headline Tour
Today the dreamiest of dream teams Elizabeth andAlice Skye join forces to announce an Australian East-Coast Co-Headline Tour throughout June and July. After a year of solitude and isolation Elizabeth and Alice, along with their bands, are ready to traverse the country, embrace the stage and stir up the biggest, best and most cathartic feelings amongst the crowd.
While their 2020 plans to tour were put on hold, including an album launch tour for Elizabeth, and a slot at SXSW for Alice, the pair did not sit idly by. Last year was a big one for both Elizabeth and Alice, the former releasing a deluxe edition of her debut album The Wonderful World of Nature, and the latter three searing singles from her own soon to be released debut.
The return of live music saw Alice play a headline show at The Corner, support Avalanches at Myer Music Bowl and go on tour withMidnight Oil as a part of theMakarrata Project. Elizabeth has played Brunswick Music Festival and has spent the last month playing at Meadow Festival, Inward Goods Festival and Small Town, Big Sound. Now well and truly warmed up all the pair have left to do is a couple of group bonding activities before they’re ready to head out on the road.
The first national headline tour for both of them, the duo will be sharing the stage across several dates including shows in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Maroochydore, Melbourne, Castlemaine and Ballarat.
All shows take place on Aboriginal Land. Always was, always will be.
Stepping into her sound like a silk robe, Elizabeth is the patron saint of sad girls. With her latest release The Wonderful World of Nature Deluxe Edition, she stakes her claim as a glamorous tragic, a queer pop anti-heroine holding a curtain of glittering melodies over ugly truths. Casting herself as the antagonist wielding pop songs as weapons, she wipes away her running mascara and escapes a destruction of her own making.
Alice Skye is a Wergaia/Wemba Wemba person living and writing music in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). Since her first album, the critically acclaimed ‘Friends with Feelings’ she has signed with Bad Apples, the Indigenous-driven label that celebrates and prioritises’ blak excellence. Alice’s upcoming sophomore album ‘I Feel Better but I Don’t Feel Good’ was produced by local artist Jen Cloher. A new single from the album, Party Tricks, is released this Friday 7th May. Her work continues to look inwards and explores finding staunchness in softness.
