Coming fresh off their 20-date European tour after dropping their celebrated album “Anywhere But Here” via Domino, Sorry has emerged from Brixton’s Windmill scene, sharing stages with Shame, Goat Girl, and Black Midi. Their music blends lo-fi sounds of grunge, trap, and shoegaze, creating a unique and captivating musical world that’s impossible to resist. NME raved about their latest album, saying it “frequently takes sudden turns that you don’t see coming,” adding to the excitement of their upcoming tour.

The band, composed of Asha Lorenz (vox/guitar), Louis O’Bryen (vox/guitar), Lincoln Barrett (drums), Campbell Baum (bass), and Marco Pini (electronics), started as a duo with high school friends Asha and Louis, each releasing solo projects on Soundcloud before joining forces.

Since signing with Domino in 2020, alongside musical giants like Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand, Sorry released their debut studio album “925,” produced by Lana Del Rey and Gorillaz producer, Jamie Dring. It received rave reviews, with triple j declaring it “the best debut album of the year” and Pitchfork hailing it as a “deeply self-aware debut worthy of being taken seriously even when it’s not serious.”

The album’s success propelled them to sold-out shows across Europe, a spot at Glastonbury in 2022, and a showcase at SXSW in 2021.

Tickets to see Sorry on the Australia and New Zealand tour go on sale at 1pm on Friday, July 28th, with a presale for Frontier Touring members opening at 11am on Wednesday, July 26th. Grab yours here
