After spawning a series of decade defining dance-punk hits and entering a self-imposed hiatus at the end of 2010, LCD Soundsystem's return to music last year garnered signicificant acclaim from fans around the globe. Following a huge year of touring and the release of their fourth critically acclaimed LP American Dream, James Murphy and co. have announced their return to Australia for a massive run of shows in February - and they're bringing a huge guest.

With new single 'Medication' doing the rounds and a new record rumoured to be on the way some time in early 2018, you can expect to hear a huge set of classic hits from Murphy alongside his genre-pushing body of new material.
