ALICE GLASS X ZOLA JESUS
Australian Tour June 2018
Handsome Tours is proud to announce co-headline Australian tour dates from ex-Crystal Castles frontwoman Alice Glass and electronic goth-pop artist Zola Jesus. In the lead up to their sold out Dark Mofo performance, both artists will take to the stage for captivating live shows this June in Melbourne (supported by Lucianblomkamp) and Sydney (supported by Lupa J).
Alice Glass is a songwriter and vocalist. The founding vocalist and songwriter of the duo Crystal Castles, Glass left the band in 2014. Her debut solo EP, Alice Glass, was released in 2017 to great critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, NYLON, SPIN, Vice and many more. Glass performed her first solo concerts to much praise last year, including several dates opening for Marilyn Manson. This tour will mark Glass’ first time performing solo to Australian audiences.
For over a decade, Nika Roza Danilova has been recording music as Zola Jesus. Her new record ‘Okovi’ was written in pure catharsis, and as a result, the sonics are heavy, dark, and exploratory. With ‘Okovi’, Zola Jesus has crafted a profound meditation on loss and reconciliation that stands tall alongside the major works of its genre. The album peaks of tragedy with great wisdom and clarity. Its songs plumb dark depths, but they reflect light as well.
Be sure to catch Alice Glass and Zola Jesus on tour this June. These two enigmatic, powerhouse artists give truly entrancing and not-to-be-missed live performances.
