Fat Freddy’s Drop Blackbird Album Tour 2013

Update Wednesday 24th July – Due to an unprecedented demand Niche is happy to announce a third Melbourne show for the ‘Blackbird’ Tour. This now marks the biggest Australian tour ever for Fat Freddy’s Drop as they return to showcase their stunning new album.

Following on from their breathtaking audio-visual album preview at Sydney Opera House for Graphic 2012 (shortlisted by Sydney Morning Herald as one of the best live shows of the year), Fat Freddy’s Drop return to Australia with the full Blackbird album in tow. And it is certainly worth the wait.

Released Friday June 21st via Remote Control, Blackbird is an exceptional release in its own right. As a document of the band’s progression, it is something of a watershed record that perfectly encapsulates all influences of The Drop; with moments of Ethio-Jazz, Detroit Techno, Blues, Soul and much much more in the mix. Flanked by the early teaser Silver and Gold (which immediately went hi-ro on triple j) and the official single Clean The House, fans are only now getting a taste of what’s in store on Blackbird; some familiar vibes spiced with a whole new kettle of fish.

With international demand for the band at an all time high around their third studio album release, Freddys are set to embark on a second run of shows in Europe for 2013. The October European tour features 21 headline shows across UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Portugal.
