The four ladies of Warpaint toured Australia earlier this year as part of the Laneway festivals along with a series of sold out shows in intimate venues. Many missed out on seeing the much hyped band, who appear to have sprung from nowhere to international accolades from all the right people and social media outlets. Now those who missed out last time will get a second chance to see them perform live as part of the massive Splendour In The Grass line up and at shows in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney with special guest Jack Ladder supporting.
The core of the band has been together since 2004 slowly getting their sound and songs together in LA. Releasing the Exquisite Corpse EP in 2008, the band soon had their hometown gushing over their favourite girl band. Things kept rolling strong and in 2009 when drummer, the Australian Stella Mozgawa, joined the band they soon were signed by Rough Trade, were the hot pick of SXSW 2010 and later that year, their debut album The Fool was released to critical acclaim. With subsequent love from NME and Radio 1 in the UK, and appearances at Lollapalozza and Coachella in the USA, the band has continued to tour the globe in support of the album.
