Ahead of the release of their fourth LP Sex & Food this Friday, New Zealand psych-rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra have announced a run of Australian shows promoting the record this September.
Primarily the recording project of frontman and guitarist Ruban Nielson, Unknown Mortal Orchesta's unique blend of psychedelic rock and R&B has garnered the band a significant international following since the release of debut single 'Ffunny Ffriends' seven years ago, with subsequent releases positioning the group as a key name in the blooming neo-psychedelia movement.
The 2018 dates will be Unknown Mortal Orchestra's first live dates in Australia since the release of LP number three Mutli Love back in 2015. With the band booked in to play a run of theatre shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth throughout September, make sure you don't miss out on tickets for these gigs. Check out the dates below, and watch the video for the group's recently released third single 'Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays'.
