Australia + New Zealand March 2023
Handsome Tours are proud to present Brooklyn, USA-based neo-psych quartet Crumb as they make their first ever trip to Australia and New Zealand this March for a run of headline shows & festival appearances!
Crumb’s career spans two EPs and two albums, both receiving extensive critical praise; the latest in 2021’s ‘Ice Melt’, saw recognition from worldwide tastemakers Pitchfork, CLASH, Consequence and NME, and a performance on revered radio station KEXP. The record saw them work with acclaimed producer Jonathan Rado (Father John Misty, The Killers, Alex Cameron) to create experimental compositions that are at turns head-nodding and surrealist, energetic and euphoric. Lead singer Lila Ramani characterises the album as a “return back down to earth”, a deeply felt examination of “real substances and beings that live on this planet”.
The quartet met at university in Boston and started releasing independently, building a passionate and dedicated fanbase that has seen them streamed hundreds of millions of times and their music video for single ‘Locket’ racking up over 41 million views on YouTube.
The tour will see them play headline shows at Miami Marketta in Yugambeh/Gold Coast, Factory Theatre in Eora/Sydney, UOW UniBar in Tharawal/Wollongong and The Hollywood Avondale in Auckland, as well as previously announced festivals Nine Lives in Meanjin/Brisbane, Brunswick Music Festival in Naarm/Melbourne and a festival called PANAMA in Stoney Creek/Launceston.
