Japan’s toe Announce Australia + New Zealand Tour for October 2024

Bird’s Robe is thrilled to announce the debut Australia and New Zealand tour of acclaimed Japanese post-rock/math band, toe, this coming October.

toe, known globally for their extraordinary musicianship, have been a major influence in the experimental rock scene for the past two decades. Their tracks and live performances have left a remarkable imprint on the sound of countless bands around the world.

The timing of their debut Australia and New Zealand coincides with the announcement toe is releasing their 4th full album, NOW I SEE THE LIGHT in July 2024, six years since their last EP, Our Latest Number.

Performing alongside toe on this momentous-math-instrumental occasion will be the incredible Dumbsaint, making their highly anticipated return to the stage.

Adding to the hype of toe’s first-ever Australia and New Zealand shows, this tour marks an emotional reunion for Dumbsaint. Referencing toe’s “The Book…” as the source of inspiration that led the band towards an instrumental approach, drummer Nick Andrews revealed that the upcoming tour symbolises a full circle moment for the band:

“In 2008, our first and only singer had quit the band. Unsure of how to best move forward, I suggested we embrace the idea of going instrumental with the songs we had already written.

Collectively unsure that this idea would work, it wasn’t until I walked into Egg Records and heard Toe’s ‘The Book…’ playing over the PA, that everything fell into place. Instantly captivated by their storytelling and musicianship, Toe’s discography became a gateway, providing us with a blueprint to aspire to.

And here we are 16 years later. This tour represents a full circle moment for us, and the right time to close ‘The Book…’ on this chapter of the band. Hopefully see you there.”

– Nick

Don’t miss out on this historical tour, which is set to be one of the biggest highlights in the experimental rock calendar for 2024.

Lime Cordiale announce Enough Of The Sweet Talk Australia & New Zealand Tour this October

LIME CORDIALE ANNOUNCE ENOUGH OF THE SWEET TALK AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND TOUR THIS OCTOBER

With special guests Ball Park Music on all Aus dates

After much speculation and anticipation, local legends Lime Cordiale today reveal they will hit the road in October for a run of headline shows across Australia and New Zealand.

Playing their biggest rooms to date, Lime Cordiale’s Enough Of The Sweet Talk Tour will kick off at Perth’s HBF Stadium on Thursday 3 October before heading through arenas in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, wrapping up at Brisbane’s iconic Riverstage on Sunday 13 October. The band then heads over to New Zealand for shows in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland in late-October.

In a massive coup, Ball Park Music will join the Enough Of The Sweet Talk party on all Australian dates, bringing big energy and good times for all!

“We’ve been spending so much time overseas, it’s so exciting to come home for our biggest shows yet. We’re putting a lot into making the production and stage set super exciting but as always, we want to make this feel like an intimate 100 capacity party.
Ball Park Music are debatably the best band in the country. They’ve been an inspiration to us since we first met 10 years ago. We can’t believe it’s taken this long to tour together”,
said Lime Cordiale.

“We’ve wanted to go on tour with the Lime legends for years but it’s always been a pipe dream… until now! Can’t wait to share the stage and put on incredible concerts together”, said Ball Park Music.

Frontier members can access presale tickets from 1pm (local time) on Tuesday 4 June, before general public tickets go on sale at 1pm (local time) on Thursday 6 June.

Lime Cordiale are taking the world by storm, delivering their infectious live performance to wildly enthusiastic crowds across the globe. Their genuine, generous interactions with their fans have made them one of Australia’s most in-demand acts, selling out shows from Vancouver to Vienna and everywhere in between.

“Their energy was immediately electric…”Backseat Mafia

“Lime Cordiale are a seriously impressive unit. A wholly captivating band that sit just as nicely on stage as they do on your car sound system on a long sunny drive”No Taste

In 2023 alone, the duo branched out with the release of their own carbon neutral beer Largo, landed four spots in the triple j Hottest 100, completed a regional Australian tour, and were awarded a Rolling Stone Readers Choice Award. Over the course of their career the band have been nominated for multiple ARIA Awards and have released two albums, 14 Steps To A Better You and Permanent Vacation, along with Cordi Elba, their acclaimed collaboration with actor/musician/DJ and record label boss Idris Elba.

Brisbane’s melancholic pop masters, Ball Park Music, are one of Australia’s most beloved contemporary bands and a staple on the touring circuit, frequently playing Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin’ The Moo and selling out their own headline dates.

The indie heroes create music that is “emotionally stirring and witty, filled with melodies and hooks that’ll be rattling around your head after only a few spins” (triple j), with a live show praised as “indie rock uplift” (NME). They’ll bring songs from their latest album Weirder & Weirder along with favourites from their extensive catalogue, when they hit the road around Australia later this year.

If you’re into big charisma, top notch on-stage energy and epic tunes, spend a night with Lime Cordiale and Ball Park Music this spring… you won’t regret it!

In partnership with FEAT. Live, $1 from every ticket sold across the Enough Of The Sweet Talk Tour will go towards a solar slice initiative. More information at feat.ltd

Stay tuned for new music from Lime Cordiale coming soon…!
