Attractive traveler seeks true love. Must have a excellent taste in music. Be from Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Newcastle, Sydney or Brisbane. Be available in August for a blind date. Strangers to dance floors need not apply.

August is set to have the nation coming together for an all-in blind date when three bands get to know each other whilst blazing a trail across seven cities, including one very special Under 18s show in Melbourne. New Zealand¡¯s Opossom, Los Angeles¡¯ White Arrows and Australia¡¯s very own Jinja Safari are combing their hair, shining their shoes and putting on their Sunday best for a triple-headline tour that is sure to spark some long-term relationships with fans.

Our favourite party starters Jinja Safari are very pleased to be joining The Blind Date Tour. As way of a welcoming corsage (the kind you take home to your mother) the band have a brand new track to get you shaking. ¡®Toothless Grin¡¯ premiered Wednesday night this week on triple j. Although Australia has been pining for their live antics, don¡¯t expect any cobwebs with the band recently getting the UK and North America on board their safari. Trend setting NYC label Neon Gold called their shows at this year¡¯s Great Escape Festival in the UK a ¡®bristling force of nature¡¯. BBC1¡¯s Rob Da Bank also jumped on the bandwagon, naming the group a ¡®cosmic pop safari¡¯. The band have plans to return to the UK, as they were hand-picked for Bestival in September later this year, but not before reminding Australia why the are one-of-a-kind on the Blind Date Tour.

For Kody Neilson, the mastermind behind Opossom, music is in each step, each breath and every waking moment. The ten tracks on debut album ¡°Electric Hawaii¡± are testament to Neilson¡¯s devotion to music. Following the acclaim for his previous incarnation as the singer of The Mint Chicks, the New Zealand born producer, writer and performer, now delivers a rolling debut, drenched in groove-laden psychedelia. The home-recorded album is box fresh released today! It features as album packet on Sydney¡¯s FBI radio and with singles like ¡®Getaway Tonight¡¯ and ¡®Blue Meanies¡¯, who would expect any less. Tackling topics of love, drugs with a little DIY, Opossom will take fellow blind-daters on a pulsing rollercoaster when he brings ¡°Electric Hawaii¡± to life on the stage.

Rounding off this triple bill is Los Angeles¡¯ White Arrows. Dizzying new single ¡®Roll Forever¡¯ saw the band take on the UK with their storming live set. With a show compared by the Daily Post as being led into ¡°a cul-de-sac of orgasmic, sweet indie-synth-psychedelic pop¡± that ¡°blow(s) our tiny little mind¡±. Those keen to join the Blind Date will have a sneak peak of just what White Arrows are capable of when they release their RAC produced debut album ¡°Dry Land Is Not A Myth¡± on June 22.

The Blind Date Tour will go on sale Thursday 7th June, 10am. Be sure to get in on all the action: Opossom¡¯s ¡°Electric Hawaii¡± is out today via Create/Control. White Arrows¡¯ ¡°Dry Land Is Not A Myth¡± is out June 22 via Dew Process. Listen out for Jinja Safari¡¯s new single ¡®Toothless Grin¡¯ on your airwaves!
