Meanjin/Brisbane outfit WAAX have announced a national album launch tour. The upcoming trek is in support of the group’s forthcoming second album, At Least I’m Free, which arrives on Friday, 12th August.
The 22-date national tour begins in Canberra on Thursday, 6th October, before visiting New South Wales, Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia throughout October and November. The tour wraps up with three Victorian shows in early December. The upcoming run of dates follows WAAX’s sold-out ‘Dangerous’ tour back in April and May.
WAAX – ‘Read Receipts’
“We cannot wait to see everyone out on the road, it’s going to be so special,” said WAAX front person Maz DeVita. “We didn’t get a chance to tour our last album so this one will make up for lost time! It will be a super exciting immersive world for our community to party in.”
WAAX released their debut album, Big Grief, in August 2019. Plans to tour the record from March 2020 were thwarted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the group managed to showcased their live style during lockdowns courtesy of the ‘Up In The Airlock’ series from Brisbane’s Airlock Studios and creative agency Method To My Madness.
At Least I’m Free is set for release on Friday, 12th August.
