Frontier Touring, triple j & The Music present
alt-J

Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce one of the return of alt-J, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium, to Australia and New Zealand this December. The trio will be joined at all Australian shows by Los Angeles quartet Warpaint.

Quietly, resolutely, impressively, singularly, alt-J have become one of the biggest British bands of whatever it is we’re calling the 21st century’s second decade. Art-electro, math-folk, hymnal-rock, call it what you will, the music made by alt-J is the muscular sound of cutting edge innovation pumped by a melodically bleeding heart. Ten years after forming at Leeds University, alt-J are a post-guitar group for the new-pop generation. And as audiences all over the world know, when they get going, they rock hard.

‘alt-J aren't just masters of their trade - they're innovators.’ – Digital Spy

‘The band’s eccentricity and musical genius [are] a welcome part of the Australian music tour scene.’ – Music Feeds
alt-J’s highly anticipated third album RELAXER will be released next Friday 2 June (via Liberator Music/Infectious Music/BMG) on CD, heavyweight vinyl and digitally.

Ahead of its release, ‘3WW’ as well as ‘In Cold Blood’ have both been made available to fans, and today, alt-J have released ‘Adeline’ as a further taste of what’s to come on RELAXER.

The release of RELAXER follows alt-J’s Grammy and Brit Award-nominated This Is All Yours, which debuted at #2 in Australia and #1 in the UK. Their debut An Awesome Wave won the 2012 Mercury Prize and an Ivor Novello Award. Between them, the two albums have sold in excess of two million copies worldwide and their songs have been streamed well over 1 billion times.

Three years of worldwide touring have forged alt-J’s reputation as a fierce live act. alt-J have headlined festivals across the globe, including Australia’s very own Falls Music and Arts Festival, and on their last international tour, alt-J sold out the London’s iconic O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.

Los Angeles quartet Warpaint will make their return to Australia to support alt-J. Warpaint’s studio albums emphasise moody atmospheres, with gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies, and sinister grooves. In concert, they pair this moodiness with bumped-up tempos and sinewy beats. Their live performances dazzle, and their shows are met with much delight from fans and critics alike.

alt-J will return to Australia and New Zealand this December following shows throughout Europe and the United States.
