Big Thief will be back in Australia this November, touring their latest album, Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You.
The New York band’s previous visit to Australia was in December 2017. They were scheduled to return in 2020 in the wake of their two 2019 releases, U.F.O.F. and Two Hands, but the tour was ultimately cancelled.
Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You came out in February 2022. Pitchfork hailed Adrianne Lenker and co.’s fifth album as a “20-song epic of kaleidoscopic invention, striking beauty, and wigged-out humour, rambling far beyond the bounds of their previous work.”
Lenker leads the band alongside guitarist and co-songwriter Buck Meek, drummer James Krivchenia and bass player Max Oleartchik. Krivchenia produced Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You, making it Big Thief’s first album without producer Andrew Sarlo. Sarlo did, however, mix the single ‘Simulation Swarm’ and the album track ‘Flower of Blood’.
The November tour includes theatres shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, all of which are considerably bigger than the venues Big Thief played on their last visit.
