Stereolab are well and truly into their long-awaited reunion, announcing their first Australian headline dates in over a decade.
Throughout the ’90s and ’00s, the world of music was lucky enough to bear witness to a number of stunning records from English avant-pop outfit Stereolab.
Formed by England’s Tim Gane and Frence’s Lætitia Sadier, the group quickly made a name for themselves thanks to their stunning sound, eclectic instrumentation, and unique aesthetic.
While they had initially planned to keep the project as something of a small-time affair, their popularity slowly grew, and before long, they’d signed to an American label and were gaining worldwide recognition.
As the years continued, Stereolab would release a number of wonderful records, eventually culminating in the release of Not Music, which arrived one year after their unexpected hiatus.
Thankfully, 2019 saw the return of the band, who went on to announce a number of highly-anticipated shows across the US and Europe. Now, it’s Australia’s turn to revisit the magic of Stereolab.
Last in the country for the 2009 Laneway Festival, Stereolab revealed their Australian return last week when they appeared on the lineup for both the Golden Plains festival and the Melbourne Zoo Twilights concert series in Victoria.
Now, the newly-reformed outfit have added a pair of headline shows for their time in the country, announcing shows in Sydney and Fremantle for next March.
Accompanied by iconic Underground Lovers in Sydney, the stunning Xylouris White are set to open proceedings for fans over in Fremantle. Needless to say, with lineups like these, fans won’t want to miss out on a long-awaited chance to see Stereolab on Australian shores once again.
Tickets to these headline shows go on sale from Thursday, October 24th through Feel Presents, while a pre-sale kicks off 24 hours earlier on Wednesday, October 23rd.
