Shellac Australian Tour Dates 2012

Written by Kiel Egging on August 8, 2012

Veteran US ‘minimal rock trio’ Shellac will be gracing our shores in late October for their first Australian tour since 1993.

After already selling out two shows in Melbourne at Hi-Fi Bar as part of the Melbourne Festival, the band have now added dates in other cities and will pay a visit to Hobart, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney.

The Chicago-based band was formed in the American city in 1992. Throughout their career the band has released 4 LPs and a few 7-inch singles. Their most recent LP, Excellent Italian Greyhound, was released in June of 2007.

In a statement, the band said that the demands of their individual day jobs is a reason for the long gap between tours.

“We all work for a living and the band is our pastime, so we don’t tour often or for very long. Concerts and touring have no correlation with album releases, but we tour when we have the time and inclination. We love playing music together. The band will continue to release albums and play concerts at the same sporadic pace indefinitely.”

Tickets for all shows are on sale now through various outlets.
