Karnivool season is definitely on, folks.

While the wait continues for easily one of the most anticipated Australian albums out there, Karnivool are celebrating one of their seminal works in 2020.

Announcing ‘The Decade of Sound Awake’ tour today, Karnivool will be heading around the country for some of their biggest headline shows yet. Performing the entire album in full, the band gives fans the opportunity to reconnect with such a powerful album that has spawned some of their most beloved songs to date.

Released in June 2009, Sound Awake had the mammoth task of following on from Karnivool’s defining debut, Themata. Continuing to prove the band’s experimental and individualist approach to songwriting and exploring music, the album has since become a beast all of its own.

The band, who were last seen on tour before the end of 2019 for the Good Things festival, have been generating excitement around new music. For fans, new Karnivool music is well overdue but as we’ve come to know about the band so far – they’re marching to the beat of their own drum.

The tour dates are set in stone, no extra shows will be announced. You want in? Pre-sales start from 10am on February 27th.
