You Am I frontman Tim Rogers has announced a 2017 national tour for his upcoming solo album An Actor Repairs, which he’ll take around Australia between March and May, stopping by Geelong along the way.
As his seventh secessionist recording, the songs on the album were written and re-written over two years as an accompaniment to a performance piece Tim was attempting, concerning the retirement from the stage of an elderly Actor. While the script was disregarded, instead he formed the final 12 songs for the album.
This announcement comes just after the first taste of the album with his single ‘Youth’, which Tim says is a song about a character lifting themselves by the elbows out of the well-spring and accepting the waters won’t cleanse them of their sins.
On his upcoming national tour, Rogers will perform some of his new material, as well as songs from his almost three decades worth of recordings.
An Actor Repairs is set for release on Friday, 28th April and see him at Workers Club, Geelong – Friday May 12th
