ALT-J confirm Special Guest Supports


The Frontier Touring Company have announced that some of 2013’s most anticipated shows are about to get even better with celebrated local talent Snakadaktal and City Calm Down joining alt-J (∆) as special guests on their forthcoming tour this July!

This morning alt-J (∆) added yet another win to their rapidly growing list of achievements; scoring the Album Award for their debut An Awesome Wave (out now through Liberator Music) at the UK’s prestigious Ivor Novello Awards. 

The Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize winners were also nominated for no less than three BRIT awards and have proven time and time again to hold a special relationship with Australia. An Awesome Wave has been certified ARIA gold as well as making three appearances in Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown of 2012, including an impressive third place with ‘Breezeblocks’. 

They were a highlight at this year’s St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival and have a history of selling out Australian venues in mere minutes. The band is continuing this tradition with Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion having already sold out and Melbourne’s Festival Hall and Perth’s Challenge Stadium on track to do the same. 

Audiences in Sydney and Melbourne will be treated to the sounds of indie pop quintet Snakadaktal. Hailing from Melbourne’s leafy outer suburbs, this band of friends have been making waves since winning triple j’s Unearthed High competition and single ‘Air’ placing #22 in the triple j Hottest 100. 

Their self titled EP balanced the delicate vocals of lead singers Sean and Phoebe with the exceptional musicianship of Barna, Joseph and Jarrah.

Snakadaktal recently headed into the studio to work on their highly anticipated debut album which is due for release in August this year and will show music lovers everywhere exactly what they're capable of. On stage, the band is just as impressive; 

“One word that has always applied to this indie pop group, and will continue to in the years to come, is genius – which their energetic live performance made all the more obvious.”

- FasterLouder 

Melbourne four-piece City Calm Down, who supported alt-J (∆) at their Sydney headline show earlier this year, clearly impressed both audiences and the band. 

Their EP Movements (out now through I OH YOU) is a dark pop electronic based release with an infusion of modern day pop hooks and is the result of the band bunkering down for three years to hone their sound and perfect their skills. These killer tracks will be on display across all of alt-J (∆)’s Australian performances. 

“City Calm Down are making music far beyond their years, and with the quality of music they’re producing currently, it would be worth keeping an eye on them.” 8/10 - Tonedeaf 

Don’t miss your chance to witness an electrifying display of talent and what are set to become some of the most exhilarating and talked about performances of the year. With only limited tickets left for their shows in Melbourne and Perth you’d better act fast!
