2020 AUSTRALIAN TOUR // Doors 8pm

Your favourite midwest guitar tapping, math rock family band from Minnesota are back down under. This time headlining eight shows across the country in support of their brand new album breathe, out September 13th 2019 on Hopeless Records. They'll be joined by Melbourne's SQUID FISHING on all dates except Perth. 

Since their appearances in support of Luca Brasi in August last year, the trio have toured extensively across North America and Europe, as well as completing their fifth full-length album. breathe sees Dylan Mattheisen (vocals/guitar) and his cousins, brothers Matt Chevalier (bass) and Billy Chevalier (drums), grapple with mental health, anxiety and mortality while actively pushing their own sonic boundaries. Recorded with longtime collaborator Greg Lindholm and established pop producer John Fields, breathe is a reminder that we're all in this together, channelled through the band's trademark melting pot of math-rock, pop-punk and emo, albeit with a few new musical tricks (there are electronic flourishes sprinkled across the album, along with a banjo).

breathe is an emotional crutch to lean on, and the friend we all need in darkest moments. It's the sound of a band coming to terms with their own mortality, anxieties and self-doubts. it's a reminder that as long as there are songs sung back as if our lives depend on them, we are never alone"
