Angus and Julia Stone: Aus/NZ Tour Announced!
Words by Lauren Ziegler - Published on July 1, 2014
Beloved brother-and-sister act Angus and Julia Stone have reunited, and they’re launching their forthcoming third album with a massive Australia & New Zealand tour!
The pair were reportedly brought back together by the brilliant production mastermind Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Black Sabbath, Johnny Cash etc.) “Angus and Julia are truly unique musicians,” Rubin said. “They are authentic and pure people who things from the heart. I’ve never worked with anyone like them.”
We were recently given a first taste of what to expect when the self-titled album is released on August 1, their first since 2010’s Down The Way. First single Death Defying Acts signifies a shift in their sound: it’s darker, it’s sultry and sensual. It’s no doubt that their sound has matured and grown since they last played together.
Commencing in September, this will be their first national tour since 2011. Supporting the pair for all shows is the stunning sounds of 18-year-old Tim Bettinson, aka Vancouver Sleep Clinic. You can read our recent VSC live review here!
