Melbourne duo Tom Iansek and Jo Syme aka. Big Scary will be doing an Australian tour in April on the back of their critically acclaimed debut LP Vacation – named one of Richard Kingsmill’s top 10 albums of 2011.
Having played a small run of sold-out intimate performances in October, the Vacation Tour will see them return to the stage in all their genre bending glory.
“This will be the biggest national tour we’ve ever done. We’ve been practicing hard and we’re looking forward to taking the ‘Vacation’ songs, and a smattering of even newer material on the road,” said lead singer Tom Iansek.
Off the back of local success, 2012 will see Big Scary perform overseas at SXSW and Canadian Music Week, before embarking on an East Coast and West Coast run of dates in North America.
