After two sold-out performances in late 2014, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders are returning to the live arena for a cross-country run of shows, presented by Music Feeds, under the banner of the Playdates Tour.
Named after their critically acclaimed album, also released late last year, the Playdates tour will take the band to stages across Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney this May.
Playmates was produced by Kim Moyes (of The Presets fame) and mixed by David Wrench (Jungle, FKA Twigs, Caribou, Seekae). The Dreamlanders (Kirin J. Callinan, Laurence Pike and Donny Benet) also reunited especially to play on the record, which has yielded two singles so far: Come On Back This Way and Her Hands (below).
The run of Aussie dates will follow on from Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders’ debut US tour which is happening this March, with the band hitting New York and LA straight after what will no doubt be a very busy few days at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
UPDATE 1/04/15: After reportedly crushing it something hard in the States, including a well received spot at SXSW festival in Austin, Jack Ladder has announced Seekae’s Alex Cameron as support for the upcoming Playdates Tour. The electronic wunderkind will be performing his solo set as opener for the Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney gigs.
Check out all the dates and ticketing information, below.
