TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT: Matt Corby
Fresh from his performance at Splendour In The Grass, Matt Corby announces The Resolution national Australian tour.
It has been a huge year for the ‘Brother’ singer. Having spent the first 4 months of the year holed up in a variety of apartments and studios in LA working on new material, Corby surprised fans in May by dropping into triple j to showcase the first track from his forthcoming debut album set for release early next year.
‘The Resolution’ single is now certified platinum with sales in excess of 100,000 copies. The Resolution EP, released worldwide in July, scored top ten iTunes charts in UK, Sweden and New Zealand as well as Australia (#2). Resolution was recorded with producers Charlie Andrew (Alt-J) and Mocky (Feist, Peaches) and his live band. The Resolution EP, which also features new tracks ‘Lay You Down’ and Evangelist’, is out now.
Joining Matt Corby on tour will be London trio Bear’s Den. The music they make is wholesome, warm and engaging, and takes its influence from the likes of Wilco and Ryan Adams and a wealth of both folk and alt-country reference points. The ethos of DIY is at the heart of everything Bear’s Den has done since their inception. Charging around the UK in a van playing to any venue that would have them, picking up support tours including Of Monsters & Men and Matt’s own UK tour last November, concluding 2012 supporting Mumford & Sons at London’s 02 Arena.
