RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced their biggest Aussie tour yet

After dropping their anticipated third LP Solace on Friday, one of the world’s pre-eminent electronic acts RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced their Solace Australian tour – their biggest Aussie tour yet.
The epic run of shows will kick off with a festival headline set at Sydney’s Field Day festival on January 1, 2019, before moving through Melbourne to play Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Adelaide’s Entertainment Centre, Perth’s Fremantle Arts Centre, Margaret River’s Three Oceans Winery and finishing up at Brisbane’s Riverstage on March 2. Massive venues, massive tracks; it’s set to be the Aussie live music event of the new year.
Solace follows RÜFÜS DU SOL’s previous two platinum-certified albums ATLAS and Bloom, and is an album that is as sonically rich as it is emotionally intelligent. The Australian three-piece, comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, have explored new territory on Solace; born out of a particularly poignant period for the band, it tackles heavier themes such as the pain of loss and the persistence of memory. This is unequivocally the group’s most sophisticated work to date.
The brand new live show will push the band’s on-stage abilities to new levels. With an emphasis on jamming and live improvisation, the trio will bring the magical spontaneity of their studio process to the stage in an unprecedented format. Bringing a host of new analog gear into the fold, as well as a revamped visual setup, the new live show will allow for each RÜFÜS DU SOL performance to be sonically distinct. Of the upcoming shows, Jon says, “Some of our favouite moments have been at these outdoor venues. These live experiences just bring everyone together – whether you’re losing your friends, or finding new ones, but being so content in dancing and connecting with the music and the band on stage. We really hope to bring those moments and create that emotional connection over the summer.”
Check out their album below.

Catch them at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne on Friday February 15.
General public tickets are on sale from 10am LOCAL Friday October 26.
