Synth-pop star Alex Cameron announces Australian tour

Alex Cameron returns to Australia and New Zealand this November and December.

One of music’s most exciting artists Alex Cameron has announced his return, touring Australia and New Zealand in November and December 2022 for his first shows down under in two years, in support of his latest acclaimed studio album, Oxy Music – out now via Secretly Canadian.

The effortlessly catchy synth-pop star and his six-piece live band – including sax player and collaborator Roy Molloy – will perform six headline performances in Fremantle, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Wellington and Auckland. Cameron’s previous, pre-pandemic headline tour in March 2020 saw shows quickly sell out, venues upgrading due to demand (also conveniently wrapping up 24 hours before AU/NZ borders closed.)

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Initially inspired by Nico Walker’s Cherry, Cameron’s latest opus (released in March 2022) is his response to the mass opioid addiction which has swept America, a musical questioning of topics such as addiction, mental health, and love, mythical stories told in Cameron’s genre-busting glory.

Brighter and more buoyant than his previous LPs – 2014 debut Jumping The Shark, 2017’s Forced Witness, and 2019’s Miami Memory – Cameron has dropped the laconic, hyper-masculine role-playing of his earlier solo releases for a place of optimism, stories told in the way that only he can tell.

“The album is a story, a work of fiction, mostly from the perspective of a man,” says Cameron. “Starved of meaningful purpose, confused about the state of the world, and in dire need of a reason to live.”

Live on stage, Cameron has graced festivals such as Roskilde, Primavera, Laneway, Wide Awake Festival and many more, with a North American tour pencilled in for October 2022 before the band head south. Catch Alex Cameron, Roy Molloy, and their band of perpetual freshness in your town soon. They sell out shows. Don’t find out the hard way. Tickets on sale this Wednesday!
