Hiatus Kaiyote Announce ‘Choose Your Weapon’ National Tour

Written by Tom Williams on May 1, 2015

Melbourne future soul ensemble Hiatus Kaiyote are hitting the road this August, behind the release of their second album, Choose Your Weapon. The quartet are set to embark on a five-date tour with stops in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

In a live setting, Hiatus Kaiyote’s improvisational abilities are put on full display. The group are renowned for their technical skill and hypnotic rhythms, and if their recent Gorillaz cover on Like A Version is anything to go by, their upcoming tour might see a few sweet musical surprises.

Hiatus Kaiyote self-produced each of the 18 tracks on Choose Your Weapon, which has finally been released into the wild today. The band say the album has a certain cinematic feel: “We definitely see the music as habitats – and each song is its own. It’s very visual.” Listen to album cut, Shaolin Monk Motherfunk, below.

Having dabbled in jazz, psychedelia, soul, R&B, funk, hip-hop and electronica, Hiatus Kaiyote rightfully describe their hybrid as “multi-dimensional, polyrhythmic gangster shit”. The band’s Choose Your Weapon tour begins in Melbourne on Friday, 14th August. Full tour and ticket details are available below.
