Event Details

Handsome Tours, FBi Radio, Pages Digital & CREAM are proud to announce that Mercury Prize winning trio, Young Fathers, will return to Sydney in January 2016. This show will accompany their already announced appearances on Falls Festival, Field Day and Southbound.

Young Fathers first graced Australian stages as part of Listen Out Festival 2014. Those fans in attendance will more than likely still remember the ringing in their ears afterwards. They're live show, a lot like their albums, goes straight for the jugular.

The January 2016 dates mark the experimental hip-hop group's first sojourn to our shores since the release of their new record 'White Men Are Black Men Too'. It also follows the Mercury Prize win of their 2014 debut album, 'Dead', which defied all odds - and beat a field of contenders including FKA Twigs and Damon Albarn - to be named the U.K's best album of the year.

2015 follow-up 'White Men Are Black Men Too' was loaded with social political commentary but counter balanced with their relentless love of music. Speaking of the dichotomy, The Guardian mentioned "This passion for politics permeates the album, but, crucially, so does their love of music. It may be a protest album at times, but one that never forgets to keep things exciting for the listener."
