After teasing fans yesterday, hinting at the news of a tour, Australia’s very own indie-pop superstar Amy Shark has announced a string of massive national headline shows for August and September this year.
The Love Monster tour will be in celebration of the Hottest 100 trailblazer’s full-length debut, Love Monster set for a release on July 13th. Amy will be taking her emotive live show to Adelaide, Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, finishing off the tour with a special performance in her hometown of the Gold Coast.
2018 has already proved to be a massive year for the singer/songwriter, with Love Monster’s first single, ‘I Said Hi’ nabbing the number #2 spot on the airplay charts, making her the highest-charting Australian act since 2016. She’ll also be hitting up Splendour In The Grass this July, a week after the release of her new album, which will prove the perfect opportunity to perform new songs.
“There’s a lot of love and demises and tales. It’s like my diary has opened up to another 13 more songs”, says Shark about the album, noting that Love Monster would be “ten times bigger and better” than 2016’s Night Thinker EP, that featured the likes of ‘Adore’ and ‘Weekends’.
This announcement also accompanies the release of a new video for ‘I Said Hi’ which was co-directed by Amy and Nick Waterman, a 2018 Directors Guild Award Winner.
