It will be their first trip to our shores since their sold-out Joy as an Act of Resistance shows in 2019 and will feature appearances in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.
On the LP, frontman Joe Talbot says, “We want people who’ve gone through trauma, heartbreak, and loss to feel like they’re not alone. This album shows the ugly side of where those things come from, but also how it is possible to reclaim joy from those experiences. Before his assassination, Trotsky knew that Stalin’s men were coming over to kill him. He knew he was going to die. What did he do? After watching his wife out in the garden, he wrote in his diary, ‘in spite of it all; life is beautiful.’ A week later, he gets an icepick in the head. He was just happy to sit in his garden watching the person he loved most do what she loved. I think that’s a beautiful thing.”
Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 12 pm, Thursday 25 November. My Live Nation members will be able to access an exclusive pre-sale beginning at 1 pm, Wednesday, November 24. You can sign up for it and check out all details here.
