Love Police and Remote Control Records are thrilled to announce that Big Thief will return to Australia in May 2020 to play shows in Melbourne and Brisbane. Following on from two near sell-out tours and a Meredith Music Festival appearance in 2017, Big Thief will play Perth, Hobart, Melbourne and Brisbane. With Sydney shows to be announced.

To celebrate the announcement of Australian tour dates for 2020, Big Thief have shared two new live videos from Bunker Studios in New York City. Watch live versions of their 2019 singles here: ‘Not‘ and ‘Cattails‘.

In 2019 Big Thief released two critically acclaimed albums via 4AD / Remote Control Records. Two Hands“the earth twin” released in October followed on from the May release of U.F.O.F. – “the celestial twin” – a universally beloved album described by Pitchfork as“a true masterpiece of folk music from a band working together at the highest level” and now nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

While some have looked on in wonderment at this prolific band’s decision to release two substantial releases in the same year, the decision was, as with every decision the band makes, eminently intentional and deeply considered. Two Hands is a partner to U.F.O.F.

In Stereogum‘s recent cover story on the band, Adrianne Lenker beautifully describes how the two albums connect and how they differ: “U.F.O.F. is meant to be more focused on the immeasurable, sort of suspended ethereal playing with textures and colours and layering in the production, staring out into the abyss. And Two Hands is more the micro, zooming into the blood and tissue and guts of being a human, the raw, bare, naked bones, not much layering, capturing just our performances in the room, just very dry, no reverbs, just skin and flesh and human, finite, physical. But I think each of them contains parts of the others.”

Sydney show to be announced soon!
