Fresh from being announced on the lineup of the third annual Mountain Sounds Festival, legendary Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. has unveiled plans for his first ever solo Australian headlining tour.
In addition to his high-billed performance at the boutique Central Coast event, the singing and songwriting guitarist will play an additional four headline shows in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, in February of 2016.
He’ll be performing tracks of his first solo LP in five years, Momentary Masters – which was only released a few months ago – as well as past solo material and, with a bit of luck, a few Strokes classies.
“I feel like the best songs I’ve written, as soon as I was done, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I did it!’” Hammond Jr. has said of the new LP. “But in that split second that it comes, that feeling goes.
“It’s the same thing when you find complete happiness, you find this complete low. I feel like that’s what being creative is: it’s you bouncing with emotion and what you capture in those bounces. Accept where you are and use it.”
Tickets to Albert Hammond Jr.’s solo shows go on sale from 12pm Friday, 30th October.
