The Buoys and Eliza & the Delusionals Announce Co-Headline Tour

Eliza & The Delusionals and The Buoys have announced a co-headlining tour throughout March and April. The two bands will hit the road in mid-March, starting off in Bendigo and moving through various regional and metro locations, including Rye, Coffs Harbour, Byron Bay, Newcastle, Melbourne and Noosaville.

The tour winds up at Drifter’s Wharf on the Central Coast on Sunday, 30th April. The two bands will appear together at all shows except for Sydney, which will just feature Eliza & The Delusionals.

Eliza & The Delusionals: ‘Nothing Yet’

Eliza & The Delusionals released their debut album, Now & Then, last year, spearheaded by the singles ‘Halloween’ and ‘Nothing Yet’. They spent the majority of the year on tour in support of the record, including opening for Silversun Pickups in North America.

A couple of days ago, they announced that long-time guitarist Tex Martin would be exiting the group to pursue other interests. The band haven’t announced a replacement yet.

The Buoys dropped their third EP, Unsolicited Advice for Your DIY Disaster, in 2021, and followed it up with the single ‘Red Flags’ last year. They spent a fair chunk of time on tour, including supporting Wet Leg, Arctic Monkeys, and Dandy Warhols.

“Excitement doesn’t even begin to cover how stoked we are to be playing with legends Eliza & The Delusionals around Australia in some familiar places, but mostly in towns and cities we’ve never had the pleasure of playing before,” The Buoys said in a statement.

“We’ve been huge fans of theirs for so long and we can’t wait to hit the road with them and share such a special tour together.”
