Klaxons announce Australian tour dates

Written by Svetlana Huffington on July 20, 2010

Klaxons have announced their return, and come September fans from Australia will experience their storming new live show in full force at the ‘Down Under The Void’ Tour.

From the press release:
With Surfing The Void, their majestic 2nd record, still smoking from the press, Klaxons will be back with a clutch of new material to further bolster their already blindsiding live act playing two shows only in Sydney on September 2 and in Melbourne on September 3.

It’s been 3 years since Klaxons burst onto the music scene, injecting a dazzling and much needed moment of rave hedonism into the midst of indie tedium with the truly original and enormously influential Mercury award-winning album, Myths Of The Near Future.

2010 marks their return with the eagerly awaited second album, revitalised, reinvented and with US production maverick Ross Robinson (Sepultura, At the Drive In, The Cure) at the helm. What’s emerged out the other side is a brilliantly diverse and engaging alternative rock record, mashing the best bits of Blur, Muse & The KLF, yet still making a record that sounds uniquely, fabulously, Klaxons.

So not a moment too soon, Klaxons will be back on Australian soil to remind all and sundry why their vision of the future is one worth seeing.

Stand by for the transmission of the life affirming video for the hugely expansive new single ‘Echoes’, shot in the Egyptian white desert with long-time creative collaborator / director, Saam.

Tickets for these two exclusive shows go on-sale Thursday July 29, and as a special offer to live show fans the new album, Surfing The Void due August 20, will be available to pre-order in digital or physical format with each to ticket to the upcoming shows.
