Following the success of the single ‘Brother’ on the Hottest 100, it seems Australian fans can’t get enough of Matt Corby. His National ‘Into The Flame’ tour has seen him play 14 shows in 18 days, to 10,000 fans and had completely sold-out a month ahead of the first show.
'The Winter Tour' will see Matt play in theatre venues around the country this June. An allocation of tickets will be available for pre-sale to fans ahead of the general public; for the pre-sale password fans need to head to www.mattcorby.com.au and sign up to the mailing list where they will also receive a free download of the track 'Winter' from Matt's 2010 EP, Transition to Colour. The fan pre-sale will be live from 9am to 6pm Thursday March 8.
Matt departs today for the US and UK, where he will spend the next few months working on his debut album, as well as playing sold-out shows in Los Angeles, New York and London. With his two London shows selling out in just four minutes, it seems word is starting to spread ahead of his arrival. Matt will also re-connect with his Communion friends at SXSW in Austin where he will play with label-mates Michael Kiwinuka, Ben Howard, Daughter and The Staves for one of the hottest tickets of the week. His management company are also currently taking applications for Secret Garden shows from across the US and UK so international fans can expect to find Matt popping up in a garden near them soon also.
New track ‘Souls A’Fire’, featured on the platinum selling EP ‘Into The Flame’ and a live favourite for fans, is at alternative radio this week. An in-studio video to accompany the track featuring Matt, T-Bone (bass), Tim (drums), Bree (keys) and Tim Carr (producer) is streaming online now
Joining Matt on ‘The Winter Tour’ will be Melbourne 6 piece Alpine, featuring the dreamy vocals of the bands tag-team front women Phoebe Baker and Lou James
