Scottish Indie royalty Belle & Sebastian return to Australia in May next year for the first time since their massively successful tour in 2015. With their latest single ‘I’ll Be Your Pilot’ signalling a fresh new wave of activity for the band, the Australian shows wrap up a global tour, with performances confirmed for The Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane.
To commemorate 20 years since the band’s previous multi-EP release – 1997’s ‘Dog On Wheels’, ‘Lazy Line Painter Jane’ and ‘3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light’ – the twee-pop superstars have also announced the release of three more EPs in quick succession this December. All titled ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’, the first EP will be released on December 8, the second on January 19, and the final instalment landing on February 16, just ahead of their tour down under.
In addition to re-embracing short-form releases, the project finds the group exploring an off-the-cuff, anything-goes ethos, experimenting with sounds, formats and themes.
“We are delighted to be coming back to Australia in 2018, with some new songs to play for you.”
Belle & Sebastian formed in 1996. They have released nine studio albums, received critical acclaim from outlets including Pitchfork, SPIN, Rolling Stone, NPR, NME and The New York Times and have produced a back catalogue of both critical and cult-status hits that have helped the band sell out venues for over two decades.
