New York City-based Blood Orange (AKA Dev Hynes of Testicicles and Lightspeed Champion fame) has been locked in to support Florence + the Machine across Australia and New Zealand. Blood Orange is the music of a seedy yet inspirational New York night time; catch these sexy, neon sounds this May!
Fanning the flames of a fire started just under two years ago, Florence + The Machine are set to ignite
stages across the country when they return to Australia in May 2012 for a national arena tour.
Following on from the multi-million selling, multi-award winning, global smash of a debut album
‘Lungs,’ Florence + The Machine first landed on Australian shores in January 2010 on the Laneway Festival bill;
playing to stunned audiences over the course of the festival as well as her own headline club shows. Barely six
months later, her ascension to stardom took a further leap when she returned to wow audiences on the main stage at
Splendour In The Grass and sell out multiple theatre shows from Perth to Brisbane. So overwhelming was the demand
that shows sold out in record timing and her stay in Australia was extended to allow additional shows not previously
The phenomenal success story of the debut album ‘Lungs’ – certified double platinum in Australia, peaking at #3 on
the ARIA Album Chart with the much loved singles ‘You’ve Got The Love,’
Kiss With A Fist’ & ‘Dog Days Are Over’ – has paved the way for her much lauded and highly
anticipated sophomore release, ‘Ceremonials.’ Debuting at #1 on the ARIA charts on the week of release,
this stunningly accomplished record is showing no sign of slowing down.
Florence Welch is an artist teetering on the wind-blown top of her game,
and this record is an extraordinary testament to what she refers to as “my incorrigible maximalism.”
The pounding epiphanic positivism of ‘Spectrum’; the galloping massed-ranks majesty of ‘All This And Heaven Too’
and ‘Shake It Out;’ the triumphant emotional battle cries of ‘No Light No Light’ and ‘Heartlines.’
Spend a little time with Ceremonials and what strikes you first and foremost is the apparent
confidence of its execution.
