Neko Case Golden Plains 2014 sideshows have been announced, and with the singer-songwriter heading Down Under to play the eighth edition of Golden Plains, she’s now playing a series of headline concerts.

Anti- released Neko Case’s first album in over four years, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You to wide critical acclaim this past September 2013, including from our Tone Deaf reviewer who called it “a stylistically diverse record that skirts brilliance… a definite career highlight.”

The Worse Things Get… is Neko’s most precise, urgent record to date, marked by a melodic immediacy, a loving embrace of the big rock gesture, and a lyrical frankness typified by first single Man, in which she warns, “I’m a man… you’ll deal with me directly.”

“My brain wilderness is more dense and dangerous than I thought,” says Case. “It was an embarrassing and hilarious march, but I now feel like a more streamlined being. It’s a good feeling. Four years of my life took ten years hostage, then gave me back twelve.”

Case’s 2009 album Middle Cyclone was the best-reviewed and fastest-selling of her career to date. It debuted at #3 on US Billboard Top 200 and earned two Grammy nominations.

With all these accolades, an incredible new album and a career with such reliably stunning output it is always with much anticipation, Handsome Tours announce they will present Neko Case on a tour of Australia and New Zealand.

The tour features headline shows and performances at various special events, and will run from February 27th to March 14th 2014. Neko last toured here in January 2010 so it’s been a long wait.
