Big Thief announce rescheduled Aus tour dates + release demos

Pleased to announce Big Thief have rescheduled their Australian tour dates to March 2021. A Sydney show has also been announced for Friday 12 March at Enmore Theatre – tickets on sale next Wednesday 29th April at 9AM AEST. Tickets are still available for the Fremantle, Melbourne under 18s and Hobart shows. All other dates are sold out. Full dates listed below.

Last week the band released Demos Vol. 1 – Topanga Canyon, CA – Feb 2018, a collection of unreleased songs from the sessions that spurred U.F.O.F. and Two Hands. The demos are available to purchase with all proceeds benefiting Big Thief’s touring crew. Available to stream now, ‘Live Young Demo’ offers a taste of the collection. It opens with hypnotically repeating percussion and guitar, quietly blooming with Adrianne Lenker’s magnetic voice. Towards the track’s close, an interplay begins between the song and ambient drones and noises of unplaceable origin.

We spent the month of February 2018 in a cabin in Topanga Canyon, California, recording 34 demos that were boiled down to become UFOF and Two Hands, and we’re bringing a handful into light now to share with everyone. We chose 5 of our favourites – none of which appear on any Big Thief records and a couple of which appear in different forms on Adrianne’s abysskiss. 100% of the funds we make from this release will go to our faithful road crew, whose income has been impacted by the disruption in our touring schedule. They are the lifeblood of the Big Thief shows and we care so deeply for each and every one of them.”
