Wednesday and MJ Lenderman Announce 2024 Australian Tour Dates

Indie titans Wednesday and MJ Lenderman have announced a couple of 2024 Australian headline shows. Both acts are on the lineup for Golden Plains in Meredith, Victoria, and they’ll also be skipping over to Perth for a gig at The Rechabite as part of Perth Festival, and playing a dual headline at Sydney’s Factory Theatre.

Wednesday released Rat Saw God in April 2023, one of the most acclaimed albums of their career, and a record that combines short, sharp storytelling with a sense of moribund detachment.

Wednesday – ‘Bull Believer’

Rat Saw God is filled with songs about disastrous neighbours, bad trips, and nights spent watching Formula One on the television. It’s a maturation of the band’s sound, both deeply relatable and highly specific all at once.

MJ Lenderman is himself a member of Wednesday but has always had his own side hustle going on, releasing a string of records under his own name. His most recent, Boat Songs, was released in April of this year. It was Lenderman’s first record made in a professional setting – the two prior had been much more DIY.

Boat Songs drew high praise, including a Best New Music from Pitchfork. Lenderman will be playing in Australia with his band The Wind, promising a loud, scuzzy, frenetic show.
