Following the news of Tame Impala being announced as one of Groovin’ The Moo’s headliners, Chugg Entertainment in association with Artist Voice, can now confirm that in addition to these festival appearances, the 2012 J Award winners will also be performing a string of headline shows in major capital cities this April / May.
West Australian natives, Tame Impala, are Kevin Parker, Dominic Simper, Jay Watson, Nick Allbrook and the most recent addition, Julien Barbagello. They loosely formed in 2007 from a collection of Perth bands releasing their first EP in 2008, followed by the debut album Innerspeaker (2010) and the follow up, Lonerism (2012).
Since its release, Lonerism has received worldwide praise and endorsements from fellow artists and celebs, and has garnered all star ratings from industry and tastemakers, including perhaps the most heartmelting accolade of them all, the adorable kids of PS22 covering Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.
Embarking on a sold out world tour in late 2012, Tame Impala are set to hit the road yet again this February, playing to packed out rooms from New York City’s famed Terminal 5 to the Vic Theatre in Chicago. Festival appearances include Coachella and Sasquatch in the USA, Spain’s Primavera Sound, Poland’s Open’er Festival, Optimus Alive in Portugal & Vive Latino in Mexico.
