Grouplove announce Australian Tour Dates and preview Album Number Three!

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Grouplove, but the US band have just announced that the wait will soon be over: they’ve got a new single and album on the way, and they’re going to be kicking off their world tour in Australia with two dates this August!

Their highly anticipated third studio album is set to be called Big Mess and will be released through Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records on September 9th. The first single, “Welcome To Your Life,” will be released on July 15th. You can watch a trailer for the record, which include previews of four tracks, here:

The album was recorded in Los Angeles and Seattle with producers Captain Cuts (Grouplove’s own Ryan Rabin) and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, The Shins). “We made this album at an important crossroads in our lives, and it was a dream come true to be able to work with Phil Ek up in Seattle and with Ryan down in LA. We’re extremely excited for the world to hear it!” said singer/guitarist Christian Zucconi about the release.

This August, Grouplove will hit the road in support of the album for their Big Mess World Tour, kicking off their dates in Australia, two dates of which we can reveal today, before heading to Europe and North America. Lisa Mitchell will return to Australia to support. Check out the dates below and head to their official website for more details.
