Aussie dance legends, The Presets have announced their comeback to start never-ending parties around the nation once again with 2018’s ‘HI VIZ’ tour. It’s hard to believe its already been over a decade since the duo dominated Australian charts with tracks like ‘My People’ and ‘Talk Like That’, taking their industrial inflicted jams to festival stages, warehouses and arenas ever since.
The national tour will launch the act’s highly anticipated 4th album HI VIZ, featuring previously released tracks ‘Do What You Want’ and ’14U+14ME’, which are already receiving their fair share of triple j love, proving the acts ongoing influence and appeal.
HI VIZ, which is slated for a May 18 is what the duo describes as a ‘back to basics’ take on their electro-dance sound, created with their live experience at the forefront. “We wanted to make something that was literally meant to get you out of your head”, explains Julian Hamilton.
“All the songs on HI VIZ are outward looking so in that respect it’s much more like our earlier stuff. It’s about trying to capture that energy you get on a great night out with your friends when you get to leave everything else behind you for a while. We essentially tried to create the soundtrack to a party that we would want to go nuts at.”
The Presets will also headline River Sessions 2018 in Mackay, featuring other Aussie acts like Thundamentals and DZ Deathrays.
Tickets for the tour go on sale at 12pm, Wednesday, April 11 via Live Nation.
