Cloud Control & Leader Cheetah Announce Co-Headline Tour

With the release of brand new single ‘Gold Canary’, melodic magicians Cloud Control are very pleased to announce a co-headline tour with friends Leader Cheetah.

The ‘East Coast Smackdown Tour’ will see the two bands play shows throughout November and December, with Leader Cheetah hitting the road in support of the limited edition vinyl release of their debut album ‘The Sunspot Letters’.

Following shows across the country and festival appearances in the UK and Australia throughout 2009, Cloud Control are keen to showcase new songs from their forthcoming debut album, due out on Ivy League Records in early 2010.

‘Gold Canary’ is the first new music from the band since their infectious single ‘Death Cloud’. With tribal chants culminating in what can only be described as a dub-step hoedown, ‘Gold Canary’ presents a band fully in control of their unique vision, and highlights a love of exploration and change that all true artists possess.

The past year has seen Leader Cheetah play a host of festivals as well as tour with Dan Auerbach, Elbow and Liam Finn. The ‘East Coast Smackdown Tour’ will see the Adelaide four-piece return the road for their last tour of the year before they head into hibernation to record the follow-up to ‘The Sunspot Letters’. Before then though, they’ll be releasing the acclaimed album on limited edition vinyl, which will include a bonus 7″ with three unreleased album out-takes

Both Cloud Control and Leader Cheetah have a reputation for amazing live shows, so get tickets lickety split when they’re released on Tuesday October 6.
