UNDERGROUND LOVERS launch the new album ‘WEEKEND’ With a series of special East Coast shows

Celebrating the release of their first new album in 14 years, seminal dream pop outfit Underground Lovers will debut their seventh full length album, ‘Weekend’ via a series of exclusive shows across the East Coast starting in their hometown of Melbourne on April 20th at The Corner Hotel

The album title, a nod to Jean Luc Godard’s agitprop 60’s masterpiece of the same name, takes its listeners on a musical journey of exquisite tension and propulsive rhythms to a place you never  want to leave. A combination of distinctive guitar, dance loops, ethereal vocals and introspective lyrics produce the unusual pop / rock songs and atmospheric dance music that is the first album in some years from Underground Lovers.

Right now celebrated as both RRR and PBS Album Of The Week, this highly anticipated new record has been welcomed with wide critical acclaim…

“Underground Lovers, one of the most vital Melbourne acts of the 1990’s, were never given to conformity, and nothing has changed on their comeback album. On Weekend, they added to an already lengthy legacy.” The Age 05/04/13

“the Underground Lovers first album in 14 years is a triumph.” Stack Magazine 03/13

“One of the most consistently engaging bands Australia has ever produced” Singled Out – Time Off 12/3/13
