Yves Klein Blue Announce National Tour

Yves Klein Blue return from their recent overseas jaunt to play SOLD OUT shows in Sydney and Melbourne next week as a special sneak preview of their highly anticipated debut album ‘Ragged & Ecstatic’.

It seems YKB can’t get enough of being on the road, announcing a national Australian tour throughout late June and July to celebrate the release of the album. Having just made our US and UK counterparts take notice of their classic intonation and danceable indie jive, Yves Klein Blue are poised to bring their live presence to Australian audiences from Ballarat to Toowoomba!

Piano tinkling tune, ‘Getting Wise’ has been hitting the Australian airwaves of late, jumping onto rotation at alternative radio, whilst the international buzz continues to build in the UK with the band being added to the XFM and BBC Radio 6 playlists.

Yves Klein Blue played packed out shows at The Great Escape in Brighton, UK to a room jammed full of industry and fans, with whispers of potential European tours spreading as soon as the band stepped off stage.

Catch Yves Klein Blue on their national ‘Ragged & Ecstatic’ Tour of Australia in June and July 2009 culminating in a performance at Splendour In The Grass.
