WAAX announce mammoth Australian tour with shows in Melbourne and Torquay

WAAX are coming to town, with the Brisbane rockers announcing a 21-date national Australian tour in support of their new album 'At Least I'm Free'.

Ahead of the release of their highly anticipated second studio album At Least I’m Free, available Friday 12 August via Dew Process, WAAX has announced a mammoth 21-date national album tour for October – December. Kicking off on Thursday 6 October in Canberra, the Meanjin based four-piece will perform across the country before wrapping on Saturday 3 December in Torquay. Tickets are on sale now.

“We cannot wait to see everyone out on the road, it’s going to be so special. We didn’t get a chance to tour our last album so this one will make up for lost time! It will be a super exciting immersive world for our community to party in,” says frontwoman Maz DeVita of the tour.

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

This extensive tour follows on from their sold-out national Dangerous tour in April and May as well as recent dates as special guest for The Amity Affliction. Maz also joined Northeast Party House on stage at Splendour In The Grass for a riotous cover of Linkin Park’s One Step Closer.

On At Least I’m Free, WAAX teamed up with the production team behind their debut breakout album Big Grief – Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger) and Grammy Award-Winner Nick DiDia (Rage Against The Machine). The album features recent single Read Receipts, the Queensland Music Award winning single Most Hated GirlHelp Me Hell,and the Linda Perry co-write Dangerous, in addition to some fresh collaborations, including US rock superstar K.Flay on the standout No Doz.
