THEE OH SEES Announce Australian Tour + Limited Edition Deluxe Vinyl


Flightless Records and Panache Touring are extremely excited to announce that Thee Oh Sees will be touring Australia in January, 2016. Not only that but to celebrate the tour announcement, there will also be a special Australian release of the group’s fourteenth studio album Mutilator Defeated At Last on limited edition deluxe vinyl.

Considered as one of the most influential, pioneering and exciting garage bands of the 2000s, Thee Oh Sees will return on the back of their fiercest record to date – Mutilator Defeated At Last – along with a brand new lineup consisting of John Dwyer (vocals, guitar), Timothy Hellman (bass) and double drummers, Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon. It’s the loudest, fastest and tightest Thee Oh Sees have ever sounded.

The band will embark on a massive nine-date Australian tour that will see them perform shows around the country this January. It will be their first visit back to our shores since 2013. See Thee Oh Sees in Brisbane at Crow Bar on January 8, Gold Coast at Shark Bar on January 9, Byron Bay at The Northern on January 10, Newcastle at The Small Ballroom on January 13, Sydney at Newtown Social Club on January 15, Wollongong at the Uni Bar on January 16, Geelong at the Barwon Club on January 16, Melbourne at Howler on January 19 and Fremantle at Mojo’s Bar on January 23. All tickets are on sale now, see below for details.

But before they arrive, November 20 will see their new album released for Australian fans for the very first time as a limited edition deluxe vinyl. The album is nine muscular tunes primed to pummel to. Previous album Drop was more schizophrenic, ranging from heavy to whimsical and back – but Mutilator Defeated At Last has more in common with the monolithic hugeness of Floating Coffin – with only two slight reprieves in heaviness this is a record made to be played loudly and that demands bodily sacrifice inherently.

Despite the plutonium heavy feel, Thee Oh Sees continue to be omnivorous – synths and acoustic guitars expertly wind their way throughout like veins of gold through granite – any and all that stands in its way will be devoured and assimilated. This is the sound of a band doing what they do best, and it’s available to pre-order now via Flightless / Remote Control Records.
