Australian Tour May 2014
Imbuing rural Americana with shades of psychedelia, Texan psych-folk six-piece Midlake return to Australia this May, playing an exclusive show at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel. With their most recent tour dating back to 2010’s sold out shows, the band will this year will also perform at Vivid Festival.
Touring in support of their latest LP, last year’s Antiphon, Eric Pulido (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Paul Alexander (bass, keyboards, bassoon, guitars, backing vocals), McKenzie Smith (drums, percussion), Eric Nichelson (guitars, autoharp), Jesse Chandler(keyboards, piano, flute, backing vocals) and Joey McClellan’s (guitars, backing vocals) fourth album is proving a watershed moment in their 15-year journey, with The Guardian praising the release as “another impeccably realised meld of bucolic 70s folk and radio-friendly soft rock, as warm and assured as it is adventurous”.
