After returning earlier this year with their highly-anticipated, fifth studio album Haiku From Zero, featuring globally adored singles “Airborne”, “Standing In The Middle of the Field” and “Black Rainbows”, pioneering electronic act Cut Copy today announce an Australian & New Zealand headline tour, set for January 2018.
Kicking off at The Met in Brisbane on January 18, the tour will take them to Wollongong Uni Bar the following night, before heading to their hometown of Melbourne to play Sugar Mountain Festival. The band will then head to Auckland playing The Studio on January 24, before returning Sydney to playManning Bar on January 25. The tour will wrap at Melbourne’s iconic Melbourne Zoo Twilights Festivalon January 27; Audiences in each city can prepare for an illustrious set as Cut Copy debut their eclectic new live show to bring Haiku From Zero to life.
The band’s first release in four years, Haiku From Zero was written and recorded at studios around the world, from Melbourne, to Copenhagen, Washington DC, New York and Atlanta. Produced by Ben Allen, credited to tuning the releases of Deer Hunter and Animal CollectiveHaiku From Zero is Cut Copy’s arguably most sonically diverse, astutely curated record of their career. Leaning away from the Balearic and acid house textures of 2013’s Free Your Mind LP, the impending release nods towards Afro beat, dubby rhythm sections and colourful, expansive synths found in a disco era of yesteryear.

This beauty in collision carries across into the band’s live aesthetic and sonic identity. Marrying electro-pop with the fleshed out sensibilities of an indie rock band, Cut Copy have firmly carved their own as an amalgam of the two – an act that has performed on the biggest festival stages and headline venues across the world, from CoachellaUltra and Lollapalooza in the U.S.; Primavera in Spain, Pitchfork in Paris; Summer Sonic in Japan; and Splendour in the Grass in Australia.
Earlier this year, the band performed two massive headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney, selling out both. Unleashing a wave of nostalgia onto Sydney’s Metro Theatre and Melbourne’s The Croxton, the quartet played a calibre of Cut Copy favourites spanning the last decade including “Need You Now”,“Future” and “Free Your Mind”The band are now finally ready to showcase their most dynamic release to date. Don’t miss out on experiencing one of the world’s most dominant electronic forces live this summer.
