Critically acclaimed European electro/pop artist JAPE will join the circuit as special guest on this tour of Lake Air.

Fans who are excited about the tour have an extra incentive to purchase tickets early and secure a limited edition copy of 'Lake Air' on vinyl which will be waiting for them at each show.
Says Dappled bassist Alex Moore "Lake Air was the album we always wanted to make. Playing it live is going to be something really, really special. We are so damn excited. Prepare to get unreal.
And Jape's main man Richie Egan is equally as thrilled to join the bill, "We're really looking forward to playing in Australia. It's going to be great to get to know the Dappled Cities guys and hopefully they can give us some advice about how to deal with the flying cockroaches."
