After two years of constant touring, The Paper Kites have decided to continue their domination with a host of national shows in late August and September.
Coming off the back of the release of single, ‘St Clarity’ from their debut studio album, States, The Paper Kites will start their tour in NSW (Sydney and Byron Bay) before heading to Queensland (Gold Coast and Brisbane) Adelaide, Hobart, Fremantle, before finishing off their tour in the hometown of Melbourne.
During their run, the band will have two Under 18’s shows (one in Perth and Melbourne), where they will showcase their latest material from States.
States is set for release later this year, but the music clip of St Clarity’ has already been thrown on air. The clip, which is directed by two-time ARIA winning director Natasha Pincus, who made the groundbreaking clip of Gotye’s Somebody That I Use To Know.
Such is their stunning rise, City And Colour, the growing popular US rock group, have asked The Paper Kites to their support band for their US tour.
Heads up: The U/18 events are for patrons 14-17 years age only because venues at both Melbourne and Brisbane do not host all-ages events due to local laws. Entry will be refused to anyone over the age of 18 years and nobody under the age of 14 will be granted entry for safety reasons. ID will be required for entry.
Tickets available from oztix.com.au, ticketek.com.au, ticketmaster.com.au and moshtix.com.au depending on where the shows are held.
