Tame Impala Announce ‘Skeleton Tiger’ National Tour

Written by Toby Smith on January 21, 2009

The near-mythical wonderbeast that is Perth 3-piece Tame Impala will roar across Australia this February 09 for their first fully fledged headline dates.

With a full flask of new unheard tunes to plunder, this national gallop will be their last before boarding a plane abroad to set the ears of foreigners on fire in March.

Late last year the winsome spirits behind Tame Impala, Kevin Parker (guitar and vocals), Dominic Simper (bass guitar) and Jay Watson (drums and vocals) released their hugely successful debut EP in a fury of psyched-up fuzz and tumbling rock.

From the single Desire Be Desire Go’s charmingly sloppy rhythms and wiggy guitar to Half Full Glass Of Wine’s half-speed, double-riffing magic to the new radio stormer & live show favourite Skeleton Tiger.

With its chiming guitar riff and deep, explorative breakdowns, Skeleton Tiger is a downright spiritual experience, leaving the listener in a state of sonic weightlessness.

Come and enter the Tame Impala sphere of consciousness and wellbeing this February.
