Following their SOLD OUT Vivid ‚ÄúLive‚ÄĚ Sydney Opera House and Dark MOFO Hobart shows, THE PREATURES have announced their final concert tour of 2015, ‚ÄėTHE CRUEL TOUR‚Äô. The National tour will hit capital cities as well as major regional locations from late August to early October.
Today THE PREATURES also reveal the video for their current single ‘CRUEL’ taken from their critically acclaimed debut album Blue Planet Eyes. Directed by Byron Spencer, the video includes footage shot by the band when they played a secret gig at venue Oxford Circus in Surry Hills.
The Preatures have hardly stopped for a breath since the release of Blue Planet Eyes last October which debuted at #4 on the ARIA Album Charts. A trip to their second home Austin, Texas for the acclaimed Austin City Limits Festival was followed by a sold out album tour in Australia rounding out 2014.
2015 began with a killer set at Triple J’s Beat The Drum party in Sydney, and shortly afterwards, an extensive world tour to over a dozen countries including USA, UK, France, Germany and Sweden cementing THE PREATURES reputation as one of the most exhilarating and mesmerising live bands on the circuit.
‘The Cruel Tour’ will include special guests THE CREASES, and a selection of Australia’s brightest emerging talent to open each show.
These shows will be the last in support of Blue Planet Eyes with the band looking to begin writing and recording their follow-up album at the end of the year
