The tour sees Cummings return from international waters where she is completing a 26 show run across the US, UK and Europe, with KEXP Live and WNYC, plus a special yet-to-be-announced performance for US late night television. Grace will play her first sold out London headline shows, support genre-generating giants and fellow Flightless Records company, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, on their European tour, and play a series of festival dates before returning to home soil to treat Australians to her formidable live show.

These shows mark her Ramona era, a record that is a departure from her self-produced 2019 debut Refuge Cove and its 2022 follow-up Storm Queen. Enlisting producer Jonathan Wilson, of Angel Olsen, Father John Misty and Margo Price fame, in the production chair, joining him in his Topanga Canyon studio, the two build pillowy sounds that elevate the songwriters pipes.

With strong themes of grief and self-destruction and emotional violence, Ramona is Cummings at her most realised, seeing her embody the persona of the namesake character. The album includes singles ‘On And On’, ‘Common Man, the titular ‘Ramona’ and ‘A Precious Thing’.

Tickets to witness the songstress on her mega tour are available now and can be purchased here. Stream the new album Ramona here.
